The WWE Divas Revolution Is Getting Ugly

There appears to be a bit of a double standard in the WWE Universe. It seems that while the universe has been highly vocal in expressing their views on the Divas Revolution, those same voices appear to be a little too sensitive when the girls return the favor.

The wheels came off of the rails Monday night in Brooklyn on live television. During Monday Night RAW, about 15,000 fans hijacked the segments featuring the WWE Divas with catcalls and unflattering chants. Yet when the Divas went on social media to respond, those same critics cried foul.

Paige was the first to break her silence and fire back at the crowd and critics of the movement. Paige went on Twitter and scolded those fans.

“You helped us create change and then did your best to disrespect. Niceeeee jobbbbbbbb!”

Brie Bella followed by posting on Instagram “Brooklyn crowd can kiss my ass” while her sister Nikki wrote “WWE Brooklyn shame on you for disrespecting women that put their bodies on the line for your entertainment.”

The Bellas and Paige immediately got heat for their social media escapades and were criticized for being unprofessional to their fans. Paige actually went back and deleted her tweet. Unfortunately for her the tweet was seen by plenty in social media and still hasn’t forgotten. Yet I see absolutely nothing wrong with Paige or the Bellas for firing back.

Let’s be honest for a second. The segments on Monday and the booking of this “revolution” has been downright awful. The cynic in me says that it was booked to fail as some kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy by Vince McMahon. Nobody with any pro wrestling acumen could believe that this booking would get anyone over. So nobody should be surprised by fan reaction on and off of social media.

At the same time, I think fan chants have gotten way out of hand and took the fun out of pro wrestling a while ago. To be fair, the WWE regularly encourages these chants so they have nobody to blame but themselves. The chants were even addressed on commentary Monday night. Why wouldn’t Paige and the Bellas be upset at being essentially embarrassed on live television by fans who hijacked their segment?

That said, someone should let Paige know that nobody was asking for THIS Divas Revolution. I don’t even know how many fans were clamouring for any kind of a divas revolution. With all due respect to Paige, and I think she’s a damned good worker, you can’t blame the fans for rejecting something they never really wanted.

This whole Divas Revolution has gotten way out of hand. Quite honestly, it may be one of the biggest booking flops this company has produced in a long time. Paige and the Bellas shouldn’t be mad at the fans, they should be mad at the writers for ruining their party. Then again, it’s their party and they can certainly cry if they want to.
