Re: Anyone else tired of WWE exaggerating their "women's revolution"?
I'm fine with the Women's Revolution angle, in theory, because it's addressing things fans of women wrestling like myself have been saying for some time.
The execution has been rough. I'm glad the ladies got to main event a PPV and I'm glad it was in hell in a cell, but it just wasn't a good match to me -- it's an example of something historic and potentially important, but not actually good.
There are some other things that are holding the angle back in my mind are the lines "... no more bra and panty matches!" (as uttered by Sasha Banks) and the character of Nikki Bella.
If John Cena is correct and the target audience is between 6-10 years old, that means the target viewer wasn't alive when was the last bra and panty match took place, and the end of the B&P match type sure didn't have to do with Stephanie McMahon or Sasha Banks.
Also, as OSW points out, having the character of Nikki Bella without any notable changes makes the women's revolution feel incomplete, because she is literally the posterchild of the Diva division. I like Nikki, but it just feels odd to me having this Diva-ass wrestler who doesn't seem effected or really involved in the women's revolution in any way that I can think of atm.
