On this week’s Thanksgiving themed episode of WWE Main Event two of Smackdown Live’s most athletic competitors tie up in an exhibition match. Number one contender, Alexa Bliss squared off against fan favorite, Naomi.

The match began with a shoving contest between the two ladies that ended with Alexa earning quite the check from the more physically empowering Naomi. Quickly realizing that she was not going to win a battle of the brawn with Naomi, Alexa switched gears to a game of hide-and-seek, using the referee as a shield. Naomi gained the offense early using a mix of mat based offense as well as her unique showman moves.

Alexa seemingly attempts to abandon the match, but instead uses the pause in action to lure Naomi to the apron for a leg sweep. Bliss seizes this opportunity to use the ring to her advantage, using the ropes to inflict damage. The momentum in the match passes back and forth with Naomi hitting flashy signatures like her turnbuckle bulldog and flipping lariat while Alexa utilized some heelish hair pulling and her signature, Insult to Injury.

The match ends with Alexa capitalizing on Naomi missing a second tunbuckle bulldog and hitting the ddt. A Twisted Bliss later secures the victory for the small but fierce Alexa.

Thoughts: Though I enjoy both of these women, this match seemed a bit sluggish at times.  The positives are that Naomi did look strong against her opponent, which I found important as this match could have been used to help elevate Naomi’s status in the title hunt. Initially I was worried that they were making Alexa seem a bit too weak in this match, but by the end the duo was able to put across the idea that Alexa adapted her attacks to suit her opponent. It was nice to see Naomi work some mat based technique, but the match could have used more crowd involving segments. Overall it was an okay match that highlighted each wrestler’s signature moves.

What are your thoughts on the match? Would you like to see more from this feud? Sound off in the comments below.

    • Rainee Toneme

      It really is sad and disgusting that she hasn’t held a title. She should have won it in both matches where she faced Nikki and AJ. Especially the AJ match. She definitely should have held it before any of the NXT ladies.

    • Robin Zabriskie

      this is stupid……naomi is not the only woman who hasn’t been champion yet…..what about emma? summer rae? and they are not black…..the truth is she is not enough, her character is ok but not great….she needs a stronger character if she wants to be a real superstar and then a champion…..stop using racism to justify insuccess…..sometimes is just lack of something…..

      • Geek God

        Anytime with eyes can see Vince Mcmahon is a racist, Naomi can’t get ahead in WWE because her skin is too brown, hell, Sasha is only half black and the BEST woman on the roster and still can’t even get ONE normal reign, but talentless B’s have been getting reigns since the Attitude Era, they push who they want, notice its mainly Blondes? Even white girls with other hair colors don’t get treated as good as the blonde hair blue eyed women, theres something sinister with that picture

        • Joseph

          “Vince Mcmahon is a racist” Even tho The top act in WWE right now is a Black trio don’t pull the race card bullshit. Also add that the top two stars in NXT are Japanese.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            And Sasha who is a 2x women’s the champ and the Rock , booker t , and Mark Henry was world champ Lashley and E Jackson was ECW champ jazz was women’s champ I could go on and on

          • carlos

            See you must be young, because when I was growing up watching wrestling booker t was called every racial stereotype by the man who is the ceo now, which is triple h. He squashed booker at wrestlemania 19 and banished him to smackdown before being with goldust in a comedy act that made him out to be nothing but a mid carder when he finally won the title on smackdown 2 years later he had lost all of his momentum and had to reinvent himself as King booker, I see the same shit happening with naomi she has proven to be a workhorse, if given the ball she could run with it, but wwe doesn’t want to put their full trust in black talent because white people say they are not marketable enough or whatever yall say to justify the mistreatment of black performers.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Dude it’s entertainment my lord I see people make fun of whites blacks and every other skin colors in other entertainment such as movies and stuff get over it

          • Robann

            Ah, the “get over it” argument. Typical.
            Are you white? Serious question. Because White Privilege is oozing from your keyboard. Either that or just plain ignorance. Or both.
            Either way, if you cannot see why us BLACK people are upset with how Naomi is being treated by the division and other irrational skeptics on the internet, then please shut up. Ya’ll keep mentioning Jazz and Jacqueline but newsflash, Jackie JUST got inducted into the HOF and Jazz has YET to do so, even though she was arguably one of the best in her division back when she was wrestling. Each got their title runs while playing the bad girls.
            Of course, you probably don’t think its weird that both women, and Alicia Fox had title runs while being the bad girls, and ultimately even JOBBING to talent that was lesser than theirs.
            We (Naomi fans) constantly lay out why we feel the way we feel, and why we’re upset that this girl is literally put damn near a decade into this company and nothing to really show for it. The fact that she is constantly praised by the likes of her fellow superstars, ya’ll so called “faves” (Sasha, Bailey, Sami, Roman, etc) and LEGENDS (Jackie, Trish, Lita, Rick, Stone Cold, etc) for her creativity, her down to earth personality and superb ring skills. The fact that her merch is LITERALLY selling like hotcakes to the point where fans are demanding they add more items so it shows that she is indeed marketable. The fact that fans of TD nearly rioted when some higher up thought it was smart to take one of the most popular couples/characters on the show (Nao and Jimmy) off of the show not once, but TWICE.
            Naomi is THAT GOOD. To say that she is not on the level of, or surpassed the level of other superstars that you name is a great travesty. And to act like there aren’t people who don’t like her, Foxy, Apollo, New Day, and other AA superstars simply because of the color of their skin is also ignorant. Unless you are a person of color, specifically an African American in this case, you will NEVER understand why we feel how we feel unless you put those rose colored glasses down and actually open your eyes.
            Doing a little Black History month compilation on YouTube, putting Jackie into the HOF and having Foxy talk about how she was the first AA Divas Champ (which is a huge stride) during an era where people trashed the women’s division, for all of 2.5 seconds still doesn’t take away the fact that there are some higher ups in the ‘E who don’t particularly like people of Color.
            Basically, don’t try to the do the false equivalency thing with “other people bashing other White superstars” when there is a WHOLE other reason, besides ring skills, that people just don’t want an AA superstar to succeed.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Why Is it ok to bash somebody like Alexa but when somebody bashes Naomi people get all butt hurt

          • Shan

            Let me answer this for you since you seem to genuinely want to know. People’s emotions are heightened by Naomi bashing because of the length of time and utter absurdity of her bashing in some instances. When people bash Naomi they bash every single thing the woman does and is. It is near constant. The woman doesn’t smile in the ring and people go on about how useless she is. While you may not have done it, Naomi bashing devolves into sheer racism on other sites. Alexa doesn’t get nearly as much vitriol.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            But Naomi fans claim she gets to much hate maybe she does but why is it fine for those same Naomi fans to bash Alexa and then when you come at them they say it’s their opinion ok well everybody doesn’t like Naomi I’m not a Naomi fan but they claim I’m racist so cuz I’m not a fan but it’s fine when they hate on Alexa

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            But you act like all the people who don’t like Naomi is cuz she’s black that’s not the case I’m not a Naomi fan but it’s not cuz she’s black and others on this site just give a simple opinion on Naomi just like y’all would Alexa but instead y’all get butt hurt and start this race crap we don’t have a problem with her being black I don’t care if she was green I’m not gonna like or dislike someone cuz of the color on the skin

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            its fine if you or somebody else downs Alexa but when somebody downs Naomi it’s world war 3

          • carlos

            It’s ww3 because yall disrespect black women like it’s nothing… She out here killing herself being innovative taking it back old school with rvd split leg moonsaults and yall will call her a spot monkey instead of saying “dope a chick just did a split leg moonsault” just to be racist I see this dumb shit all the time I’m beyond the tit for tat.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            But what about when I see disrespect for Alexa or Carmella or anybody else so is that fair no just you’re just as much part of the problem

          • carlos
          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Telling me to shut up cuz I’m right

          • carlos

            Nah im telling you to shut up cause you dumb asf, you undermined everything I said to make an irrelevant point that didn’t pertain to the topic. Racism is huge in WWE, black talent are not treated equal stay on point and stop diverting the topic. Like bey say get in-formation

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            New day Is about the longest reigning tag champs ever that’s right EVER and that’s 3 black people

          • carlos

            And…Who cares?? See that’s what yall do, hold up one example ,and say “see this is one example of blacks prospering.” We are not talking about new day we’re talking about naomi. A woman who out performs alot of the women in her division and still gets shitted on over mediocrity.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            You said WWE is racist and if I can’t use any examples how am not supposed to prove to you they aren’t racist maybe WWE don’t think Naomi is good enough

          • Marlon Eric

            You have absolutely no clue what Carlos is saying nor do you have the capacity to understand or perceive or even walk in the shoes of someone like us for you to understand. So just shut the fuck up. Y’all use that same “get over it” bullshit to smooth over life lessons YOU don’t get or understand.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            People hate on white women in WWE but that’s fine right when somebody hates on Alexa that’s ok but not Naomi just cuz she’s black

          • Marlon Eric

            That ain’t got nothing to do with the price of eggs. LMFAO You are dancing around the subject of Carlos legitimately explaining to youhow WWE is racist in some ways. And you still clearly don’t understand. You and people who think like you thinks racism only means the KKK lynching black folk. That’s only one form.

            Thisis what I know. Naomi, and people who look like Naomi (i.e. African-Americans with African features) never have gotten a fair shot in WWE. I’m saying Blacks. Not people mixed with a portion of Black DNA who look Latino, Mediterrenean or Other. I’m talking Blacks. Black
            people. There are more than enough with pure skill, talent, athleticism and microphone skills that should be getting the same opportunities. Andnot bogged down with some stupid racial stereotype gimmicks either. R Truth is a prime example.

            But back to the women. My issue with this is none of them have gotten equal value in terms of their skill and talent. You can say however you want that “well, WWE don’t think their good” but CLEARLY, Jazz, Jacqueline, Alicia Fox, Naomi, and even Kristal Marshall had more polish, skill and ability than more of their opponents did, who got more shine, pushes or title reigns. People count the title reigns of Jazz and Jacqueline, but they were primarily only given those title reigns to play the big bad wolf to the great white
            hypes (Trish and Sable).

            All anyone is saying is why can’t a black
            woman who LOOKS like Naomi (not mixed or with European features) carry a division. She’s super marketable thanks to her own thoughts, creativity and gimmick and she’s good in the ring.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            you’re dancing around my question why is it that people can talk bad about white women like Alexa and Carmella and that’s fine T you but if somebody says something about Naomi it’s racist believe it or not everybody don’t like Naomi

          • carlos

            I don’t even need to go any further, brother Marlon Eric just punched your esophagus out https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/396b00fc58861b93490368cacac3215f7909d0630fc47c339359662dd52d6c8b.gif

          • This fabulouscarmella such and such someone clearly wants to be victimized and oppressed, bless.

          • Geek God

            This!!!!!

          • Miriam

            This. ALL OF IT.

          • carlos
          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            But what you don’t understand is fans like Alexa Nikki and Becky more than Naomi and its not close just accept that Naomi isn’t as good as you make her out to be she’s a good athlete that’s it

          • carlos

            See who are you to say what a majority likes or dislike ?What makes you the don siblon or the alpha and the Omega over other peoples opinion? Oh yeah!! Nothing.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            I have ears to hear reactions and eyes to see $$$$$ and Merch buys and everything else that matters in business

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            And you are lol so you’re a person who claims everybody Loves Naomi

          • Geek God

            If Naomi got storylines and character development in the 1st place like Becky and Nikki then she would be just as liked too, this all all reverts back to wwe’s racism

          • Fans don’t like Alexa more than Naomi. That’s a big ass lie. Becky (mostly casuals) and Nikki yes, but Alexa? Hell no. Naomi gets bigger reactions, has a much bigger following on social media and just has a bigger fanbase in general.

          • Geek God

            Naomi is a double jeopardy being both a woman and black, and gets double the unfair treatment, it shows, i do feel like wwe is getting much better but they still have some racist kinks to work out

          • Joseph

            Even tho Ember Moon is about to be the next biggest female star within the next couple of years.

          • carlos

            Stop diverting we are talking about naomi not athena.

          • Geek God

            Ember Moon got to be on NXT where they actually give ppl a fair chance to prove themselves, i did not say everyone and everything and every fan is racist, i just said that there are some racist people & every aspect of the wwe mixed in, Naomi came from a time where if you had the blonde haired blue eyes look that was all that mattered so she never got to change the company’s negative stereotypical perception of her, and honestly, I’d be surprised if Ember has success on the main roster because if her skin color boundary, i would go as far as to make a bet that she will not be treated fairly on the main roster just like Naomi

          • wwepassion

            Yes that’s because they took the ball and ran with it. Wwe will not give many black people or Asian whatever the opportunities white people get let’s be honest. You can count on in your head easily how many black star wwe has past and present that actually were big names. If you count white people you’d be counting for days. I have watched wwe from classic tapes to now wwe need more diversity.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            So when somebody hates on Alexa what’s your thoughts

          • Marlon Eric

            Exactly. lol

          • carlos

            Bruh?? it’s a shit storm of ignorance!

          • I really wish people would just zip them lips lol

          • carlos
          • Cailumm #NikkiStan

            It’s funny you can only tell us to shut up because you don’t have any valid points to say and you know we are right.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            people disrespect other women just like they disrespect Naomi doesn’t mean people are racist at all you’re black if you hate on a white women does that make you racist no it don’t

          • carlos

            I’m done talking to you because you sound irrational and drunk.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Really lol truth hurts I guess and people say I don’t like Naomi even tho I’ve said numerous times she’s a great athlete all I said was I don’t think she has “it” and that’s my opinion

          • Geek God

            Theres ppl who simply don’t like Naomi, Apollo Crews, Alicia, and New Day for the simple fact that they’re my color- brown-skin or dark-skin, and not because of their talent, and they are vocal about trashing them for superficial reasons on social media, and i will defend each and every one of those people mentioned above til the end, because they are all very talented and should not be held to double-standards by a few racist fans and wwe employees

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Still not answering my question why is it ok for Naomi fans to bash Alexa Carmella or others but as soon as somebody bashes Naomi they get butt hurt

          • Geek God

            It isn’t okay, every woman on the entire roster is talented at something and could be used on the show, i love and support all the women in WWE and want to see the whole division succeed, theres no need to put others down to bring Naomi up, so you won’t see me personally doing that, it’s just when you understand and can relate to whats going on with Naomi, you have a soft spot for her, she isn’t even my favorite wrestler (Finn Balor, Andrade Almas, Sasha Banks, Charlotte, & Alexa are my fave wrestlers currently in WWE) i just know what it feels like to be mistreated because of how you look in certain establishments, and we can sense that in Naomi’s case

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Treat people how you want to be treated if a lot of Naomi fans hate on other women then those women fans have a right to bash Naomi people need to show respect to get it

          • Joseph

            Well to be fair Crews got called up way too fast.

          • Geek God

            I can agree, but ppl are holding him to a higher standard as if he needs to be Universal Championship material right away when some of their faves shouldn’t set foot anywhere near a WWE ring

          • Mark

            Not really. Some of us just don’t like her because she has a lame dancing glow in the dark gimmick catered to little kids, sucks on the mic, just got a bunch of time with another overhyped woman (Alexa Bliss) and they still couldn’t pull off a good match. To me, Naomi has never had a solid match in her career. She was impressive as a heel though. I just don’t think she’s a technical wrestler, good on the mic or understands the business. Her spot monkey Lita stuff that she sometimes botches doesn’t impress me. I’d stan for her if she atleast had a good gimmick and some awesome mic skills, but to me, she lacks in every aspect.

          • Cailumm #NikkiStan

            It’s not the fact she’s black it’s nothing to do with that, why does everything have to involve race all the time!!

            She’s a great wrestler with a horrible gimmick the only good thing about her right now is her entrance

          • carlos
          • Cailumm #NikkiStan
          • That’s a bit of false equivalency; Alexa is not in any ways or means hampered by her physical appearance as far as higher ups are concerned, she’s given a push as we speak right now, and it can’t be on the strength of her ring work because if that were the case a Naomi type would be in her place. The deal is and has always been that Naomi has consistently evolved her game, she’s done the best she could with each gimmick given to her, from her time at FCW as a solo star, to that BAPs character her and Ariane played all the way up to being a Funkadactyl, heel, Raver etc, and she’s done well, her moveset changed with each gimmick and she has been far and away, probably aside from another held under woman in Alicia Fox, and now Charlotte, the most athletically gifted woman on the roster, has a pretty marketable personality, a lot of Total Divas fans like her, despite her being yanked constantly, and yet and still, 5 years on the main roster, and what has she gotten? We’ve seen women who aren’t as good quite frankly, the Eva Maries of the world come to mind, get handed opportunities for other media, we get the Blisses, Bellas, Flairs, Banks, Becky Lynches, Carmellas, Bayleys and even Dana Brookes getting more shine and opportunity over her. It makes people wonder why is that WWE has not given this girl a break. We can look at most “Big Belt” champions,and we had what? 3 black WWE/WHC? And we had 2 of those champions hold the secondary belt. People want to point out the New Day, but do people not remember how that gimmick originated with the minstrel overtones? Or Booker T’s forgotten Wrestlemania build-up that more than crossed the lines of good taste, Cryme Tyme, Shelton Benjamin’s Mama, the list goes on. That’s why Naomi fans get mad and think there’s racism afoot, we’ve seen it on our TV, and many in real life, and seeing and perceiving the same injustices leveled at many African Americans echoed back with watching Lessers getting your opportunities leaves a bad taste in many of our mouths, and it’s something you’d have to be black to understand and get. You don’t like Naomi, great, nobody cares, but when you try to justify why she isn’t good enough when she’s no where near as bad as a lot of lighter, brighter favorites, be prepared for people to come for you.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            But why is it when people hate on Alexa it’s ok but when people hate on Naomi it’s not

          • I personally don’t think it’s OK to hate, period. I’ve addressed this, and quite frankly it looks as if you’re looking to have your feelings validated here, which is a whole ‘nother situation. The deal is many feel Naomi has paid her dues, and she has, and that she worked hard, and she has, and has gotten nothing, which she hasn’t. People have an issue with Alexa because the ones who are knocking Naomi are praising a woman, like her though I might, who offers just as little if not less in gimmick and in the ring, and decide to big Alexa by downing Naomi. Again, I don’t do the hating thing, but a lot of people feel if this woman, Naomi, is putting in all this hard work and has done everything to the best of her ability and done it well for the better part of 7-8 years, who are you to dismiss her, especially with what they perceive to be weak charges. If people said, I don’t connect with Bliss or Naomi, they aren’t my cup of tea, and shut the fuck up, there will be no issues I’m sure, but to run down the woman who many feel is overdue for some praise, then prepare for her followers to give you a piece of your mind. Bottom line, hating bad, but if the vast majority like who you don’t, it comes with the territory like back when I was pro-Kelly Kelly in her feud against Beth, it is what it is. You can’t play the victim because people are saying to you what they like about how they feel when clearly you haven’t made the same connection, inference, etc, they have, especially when it comes to talk about her color.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            All I’m saying is those people defending Naomi are the same hating on other women but when someone says a opinion on Naomi it’s world war 3 I mean I think Alexa brings more than Naomi so does WWE doesn’t mean me or WWE is racist

          • I’m going to have to cut this short. You don’t see why people are offended because you don’t want to see why they’re offended. You have your opinion; right, wrong, indifferent, who cares, it’s your’s, you own it, cool. The issue I’m seeing is, and what I’m not feeling you’re in sync with is the more you try to justify your opinion, or say you can’t have an opinion without getting attacked etc, the more you turn people off to what you have to say, you could be right 1005%, but your approach and delivery, and the fact that you’re clearly not in an open, listening frame of mind no more than what someone who disagrees with you is, is going to get you nowhere, and it’s dragging out, people feel like your questions have been answered, and they spoke their truth, you may not feel that way, but this WWIII comment is happening because everyone here, myself included get more caught up in what they feel as opposed to hearing someone out. I heard a lot of you out, and I’ll be the first to admit, I just don’t care for or agree with opinions, and we can all just move on from there.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            I get people’s opinions but I’m also not like these Naomi fans who believe their opinion is fact it’s a different between fact and opinion

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            I’m not complaining at all I’m say Why is it ok for people who like Naomi to bash other women but when it comes to people saying something negative about Naomi its world war 3

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Naomi is a better wrestler IMO but Alexa is good as well + IMO Alexa is better at everything else and why can’t people think that without being called racist it’s more to wrestling than wrestling

          • Geek God

            Theres nothing wrong with Alexa, she’s a hometown hero for me and i think she’s one of the best already and underrated, i will not down talk her to build Naomi up, we don’t need to do that to show you why Naomi is being treated unfairly, i Couldn’t agree more with what the the person above me said

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            all I’m saying is I see people bash people all the time on here but when somebody says something about Naomi people come at everybody with race and crap I’m not a big Naomi fan but I’m not racist

          • carlos
          • So you just want to ‘down’ Naomi to feel like some rebel?

          • OJ Von Erich

            Naomi ran FCW by the way, shut up with the racist crap, look at Jackie’s career, HALL OF FAMER!

          • carlos

            How long has FCW been defunct? Naomi has been on the main roster close to 7 years and have yet to “run” into a championship, so miss me with that bs and your irrelevant point. Is she running the main roster?Not at all. What does Jackie have to do with naomi? Also Jackie was mistreated during her time, she was a title warmer for Sable, Stephanie and of all ppl chavo. But don’t get it twisted Jackie was a trailblazer long before wwe. She was bound to be a hall of famer so I think it would be best for you to be quiet because yall love getting away from the topic.

          • OJ Von Erich

            Okay then, stay in your delusional bubble.

          • carlos

            Oh my bad I just moved out, and left the bed cozy just for you. Have fun! Stank mouth. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/82506fe3613683d12f56670d53ac3b4cff00efc04216478a7ab326af370dd034.gif

            You can’t deny wwe is a bit racist and do the stero type crap black or not. It’s a fact that the lack of black champions, stars of men and especially women is a problem. If she is the skin tone of Naomi you won’t have a chance tbh. Sasha barley got by with those ugly reigns and Vince blaming her for stuff. Race is a problem in wwe and has been since day 1.

          • Geek God

            Yup, only took til 2016 and Vince Mcmahon having LESS influence that minorities (INCLUDING WOMEN) are being given chances, you must have only just stayed watching WWE

        • Robin Zabriskie

          mmmm the next women’s champ is japanese, the smackdown women’s champ is irish and the raw women’s champ is sasha again……mmm i think the era of the kelly kelly has finished don’t you think?

          • Geek God

            I sure hope so, when i said racist i meant wwe as a whole as I’ve been watching since the 90s, currently this is the best it has ever been as far as equality goes, im proud of what Sasha, Asuka, New Day and Nakamura have accomplished and i hope we can continue seeing every one being put on an petestal based on talent and not looks

        • Robin Zabriskie

          NXT* women’s champ

        • OJ Von Erich

          Jacqueline… RACISM CASE CLOSED!

      • Naomi as a heel had everything and yet she was passed over for Charlotte who at the time was a characterless, completely boring face. She has had far more stronger characters than a lot of past womens and divas champions and you know that’s true.

        • carlos

          And it could have easily been a fatal four way match at mania. Naomi was working hard and diligent all the way through mania. Her moveset got very stiff and clean and her overall look with the aqua and purple hair was so fresh. Naomi was really showing out earlier this year.

        • Garrett Marcum

          I feel like we all just need to get to a point and accept that crowd doesn’t care about Naomi like they do the top stars. No she doesn’t have a character, she had one for a while when she was a heel, but now she doesn’t. Her character is back to be woman who dances and also wrestles just like when she first debuted. In all honestly her current position reflects her actual in ring work, all flash with no substance. Naomi has always been inconsistent in her ring work, and relies on a few flashy spots to get a reaction with the crowd. I don’t mean to hate on Namoi because I think she’s a beautiful, kind, and talented girl but she has never gotten to the point where she deserved to be put on top of the division. And at this point I feel like it’s time to face the facts and see that Ember is going to replace her soon since she’s pretty much everything Naomi was supposed to be.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            You can’t have a opinion on her people will get mad and call you racist

          • Well when you say ignorant stuff, then expect to be called that.

          • So we gonna ignore the pops Naomi got at backlash or ones in her match with Alexa. Even the one when the raw women invaded? Naomi gets pops regularly. The crowd clearly cares about her.

            And what does Ember gotta do with this? She’s gonna replace Naomi how? They’re two different talents. Is it because they are both black? There’s several white women with the same complexion on the roster. The same should be the case for black women. Naomi is not getting replaced any time soon.

          • Cailumm #NikkiStan

            I agree she is kinda popular and deserves a belt but she’s not great imao.

          • Garrett Marcum

            No it’s not because they’re both black, it’s because they have a very similar moveset and style. Ember performes the moves Naomi tries to with ease and perscision. Naomi is one of if not the most inconsistent performers on the roster. One minute she’s great, the next she’s struggling to hit her signature moves.

            All of her pops are all because of her entrance and maybe a somewhat cool move she does. She has never been able to keep the crowd excited during a match unless someone more popular was involved like Sasha or AJ. I mean she really hasn’t even had a great match since she wrestled against AJ in FCW.

        • Cookie Munster :D ?

          Hey first feud as a heel was against Paige. And against Nikki Bella. What do CHARLOTTE has to do with this

        • Robin Zabriskie

          yeah but when naomi was heel they started the revolution and they wanted to push the new girls for a change…..and to be honest this change has been great, maybe for naomi is late but ember moon will be champ for sure one day, so it’s nothing about the race…..

          • Once Vince gets a creative hold of Ember, she’ll probably be reduced to jobbing to no-talent girls like Mandy Rose and Billie Kay. Sasha’s already had THREE title reigns, and the combined total of those reigns is only 55 days.

          • Robin Zabriskie

            why is that? ember is pure talent, the crowd wants wrestler now, they were on fire for charlotte and sasha last monday, they want to see that, and ember embraces that….they have already done major changes to the division, just accept the fact that naomi is not ember moon, she is good, but she is not championship material now….

          • perceval

            So, Sasha is the new Lita?

    • Mark

      Stop pulling the racial shit because Naomi is overrated and over-hyped by marks. Jazz won the Women’s Championship shortly after debuting. Sasha is already a 3 time Women’s Champion. Alicia Fox won the Diva’s title and dominated the division at one point, and was supposed to go over Beth Phoenix to win her second title up until she injured Beth. Jacqueline was a Women’s Champion and went over the most over woman at the time, Sable. Naomi marks may think they know everything, but there are professionals behind the scenes in WWE, who notice that all she is capable of is her spot monkey stuff which sometimes she botches, isn’t much of a technical wrestler and sucks on the mic.

      • carlos

        Alicia had a underwhelming 56 day reign and never held it again because she messed up on a promo while being a place holder for melina shut yo shit up! And all she did to Beth was bruise her face, and from what I remember Beth was no saint. She gave Michelle a concussion cause she didn’t unhook her hands for the glamslam. Next jackie was given the title to have sable chase it because they wanted to build sable as the ultimate baby face, jackie never had a wrestlemania moment to prove why she was great, she was an 11 year vet and still didn’t get her moment to prove how great she was. And you had to call naomi a spot MONKEY to be a racist fuckboy, u truly are lame. And not good on the mic go back and watch her promo when she turned heel and tell me that she ain’t a good talker. She can talk better than half the girls on this roster and her wrestling is miles ahead of your faves so please sit your dumbass down https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5ce0c02bfced70bedd0b1ce6c485b46d2d4f5483a4a197c39d8554ca6b106d5f.gif

        • Mark

          Stop talking about shit you don’t know. Alicia didn’t get her planned second reign because she bruised Beth. This was reported EVERYWHERE at the time. They were pushing her to win the title for the second time and her new finisher banged up Beth and they cancelled the original plans.

          I call it like I see it. Naomi is a spot monkey, if you think that’s racist it proves what a delusional tool you are. I also call Lita a spot monkey because that’s all she was. No basic wrestling skills, no technical wrestling skills, just spot monkies waiting to do their flashy moves that they botch 50% of the time.

          Can’t wait till Ember Moon comes on the main roster and DOMINATES the division with long ass title reigns. What will your excuse be then? Naomi is overrated, over-hyped, not much of a wrestler, has no charisma and sucks on the mic. That’s why she isn’t championship material. Ember Moon is a different story. She’s actually talented.

  • glassjaw

    Not even Alexa’s natural sparkle could save this match from being a bit of a drag. Naomi seems to be an increasingly sensitive topic on here and this won’t help her cause. She has no discernible gimmick other than wearing glowing sneakers; after the elaborate entrance, which in my opinion is beginning to outstay its welcome, there’s very little reason to be invested in her matches. The disconnect between WWE and drawing out the talent Naomi clearly has continues to be a curious issue.

    • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

      Yea you can’t give any opinion on Naomi on here unless it’s a opinion the Naomi fans agree with

      • glassjaw

        Agreed.

    • most people here complaining about Naomi’s gimmick fan over Bayley and want her as next champion, as if her gimmick is any better. tragic.

      • glassjaw

        I’m not overly into Bayley’s character either but I do think it has more scope for dynamics than Naomi’s right now.

      • Smackdown > Raw

        To be fair Bayley gimmick is something different and is mainly to little girls but Naomi is just dancing which is impressive I’m not dissing her but how many dancing gimmicks have we seen over the years

        • glassjaw

          The dancing is fine – it’s the lack of direction after that. Like, who IS Naomi right now? WWE need to develop her persona more.

        • this gimmick is the least about dancing, it’s supposed to cheer up the crowd and evoke some sort of reaction.
          Bayley’s gimmick is not serious at all for a contender and yet people tend to overlook it for some reason.

          • glassjaw

            Bayley’s the wrestling superfan underdog. Judging by her pops it evokes the same type of reaction Naomi’s dancing is designed to evoke, according to you.

          • Both are pretty much similar gimmicks and have the same purpose but for some reason, one is more favored than the other, and by a higher margin, I don’t know why.

          • A double fan

            Bayley Is more popular that’s why

          • Which is what happened with her gimmick progressively, as it’s probably going to happen with Naomi’s.

          • A double fan

            I hope Naomi gets to Bayley level cuz that makes the division better as a whole but I doubt it

          • She can easily get to her level if she gets the same TV time Bayley did. Naomi’s charismatic and better on the mic.

          • won’t know till you see it

          • Underdog yet she has some of the biggest shovels? Lol. She’s the complete opposite of an underdog.

        • Shady #AndStill ?

          He has a point tho. They are both crowd pleasing acts and pander to the crowd. Their appeal is the same, having fun.

        • Joseph

          Bayley can crossover to many types of fans.

          • who, other than kids?

          • Joseph

            Have you not watch the product? her fanbase isn’t just kids.

        • Naomi is far more than dancing. Her gimmick has more depth than Bayley’s.

        • Geek God

          Naomi busy needs the character development bayley got in order to cement her gimmick

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          If New Day can be the champions forever just for dancing then Naomi can too. New Day are also marketable just because of this gimmick. If WWE booked Naomi right she’d be marketable too.

    • Rainee Toneme

      Naomi’s an interesting case. She works better as a heel. She was great on the mic and in the ring, and had a good story. As a face, she gets more crowd reaction, but her matches are kinda bleh, and basically no story other than the glow-in-the-dark dancer.

      • glassjaw

        Loved her heel work. Also loved her straight talking face stint in NXT.

        • B J

          Straight talking stint on NXT???

      • She has hardly gotten the chance to develop her character on SmackDown. Most of the times she shows up, she usually beats her opponents in a flukey fashion to further her opponents storylines which in turn does nothing for herself.

    • “Not even Alexa’s natural sparkle could save this match from being a bit of a drag.” Last time I checked Naomi was the superior wrestler of the two, which is a proven fact and not up for debate either. Don’t know how Alexa can be savior in a situation where she’s obviously the weaker talent.

      Naomi clearly has a gimmick that goes far beyond her sneakers. “Feel The Glow” is clearly more than a catchphrase. Watch the movie Last Dragon. It’s about a martial artist who is on a journey to reach his fullest potential aka the glow. Once he reaches that he cements himself as the greatest. Watch the movie or look up a character analysis of LeRoy Green. Not Naomi’s fault she’s hardly gotten a chance to show off her gimmick or evolve her character when it’s WWE who have yet to give her a chance.

      How can an entrance everybody love from fans to her coworkers and by that I mean bigger names like Roman, Sami, Sasha, Bayley and many more love her entrance. It’s been called the female division’s answer to Finn Balor’s entrance on several occasions.

    • MyleneCruz

      Yet Naomi’s theme song has been listened too way more than almost every superstar on the roster on WWE’s music channel. You speak as if you are speaking facts when in reality this just your opinion. Many of us love Nao and never get sick of the GLOW so speak for yourself when speaking on Naomi cause you are clearly just a hater. All the women on SD are getting their fair share of shine and manage to all stay relevant meanwhile your faves over at Raw are scrambling.

      • Joseph

        LOL Nope Naomi isn’t even the top 10 on WWE Music youtube page.

      • glassjaw

        Learn to use a comma and then come back at me. Your reading comprehension must be lacking, because in my comment I’ve noted Naomi’s talents. And I’ve never been shy of saying I am a fan of her as well. This gimmick isn’t for me, doesn’t allow Naomi much room to shine outside of her entrance, and that’s it.

        • MyleneCruz

          Your opinion again bitch. An opinion I could care less. And my reading is just fine. I only half of what you said because the first half of what you said was bullshit so I saved myself the trouble of stooping so low to care about some bullshit a hater has to say.

    • I really wish you would have done your homework on Naomi’s gimmick, she has said herself that it’s based on (I’m not gonna lie, it’s pretty lame) a film that many African Americans have grown up with in the 80s and 90s called “The Last Dragon” and she drew inspiration from the main character, Bruce Leroy. And what exactly is Alexa’s gimmick? A Harley Quin knock-off that’s “Blissed off”?

      • glassjaw

        I really wish I was allowed to express my opinion without people getting defensive but, hey, that’s life. Naomi’s gimmick isn’t much of a gimmick to me. You literally can’t say anything constructive about Naomi on here without people coming for your tits, not even when you’re someone who has regularly praised her for being talented.

        • I’m not one for this whole set-victimizing game. I told you what her gimmick is based on,that’s not being defensive, if people actually saw her interviews on places like WWE.com since she doesn’t really get a chance to speak on TV where she explains what the glow is, it wouldn’t be such a foreign concept to people. Or go out and buy that ultra wonderful movie. Me saying I wish you did your homework wasn’t coming for you or getting defensive, I just wish you seemingly did your homework.

          • glassjaw

            I already knew which film her gimmick was based on – the fact it hasn’t translated as well on TV (yet) is where I was coming from. Beyond a flashy entrance I’m becoming tired of seeing because I want more from Naomi, there’s little reason for me to feel invested in her matches. I wasn’t knocking Naomi, but her creative direction.

  • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

    I’m sure it’s hard for Alexa to get up for a match vs Naomi on main event when she just had a title match in the vs Becky but it was pretty good for what it was the right person obviously won

    It was okay, they don’t have much of a chemistry together. I’m glad Naomi is kept relevant with all these matches, I hope she’ll pop up in the title scene sooner than later.

  • The match wasn’t even bad. It’s better than their first one. Stop being fickle. Beth and Eve had several bad matches until Vengeance. Certain talents don’t click right away and chemistry takes time to build for them.

  • Jes Lennox

    I love how people expect Naomi to write her own storylines. You should be asking yourselves why this woman who constantly outperforms her opponents, doesn’t get the opportunities they get for doing nothing.

    I see people trying to change the subject, Alexa Bliss is nothing but talk. She is so basic in the ring, but constantly gets the chance to speak on the mic & people overlook her in ring ability & the fact she says the same thing over & over.

    What exactly is Alexa’s gimmick? She’s had the chance & push to explain it. Holding her hand up & walking down the ramp is so awesome!! If you are going to come for Naomi do better, your arguments are the same & the issues are not hers to solve.

    Naomi would never get away with being that mediocre.

      They’re both overrated and generic. But what is so special about Naomi? She dresses up as a glow in the dark clown every week, comes out dancing like a retard to her stupid entrance and looks lost in the ring whenever she’s not doing her spot monkey moves (which sometimes she botches). Stop overrating the woman. No mic skills, no technical skills, no awesome gimmick – just a dancing spot monkey.

      She had a chance as a heel. But then she ruined it by wanting to go face and becoming a clown.

    Alexa relys too much on her facials and antics that her wrestling suffers, naomi had to literally slow her whole moveset down so alexa could keep up

  • THOMAS

    sad seeing naomi become natalya.

  • Jamal

    I thought it was a decent match. Definitely their best against one another. They seem to be gelling. Liked that Naomi looked strong In defeat.

  • Tunasha

    I would agree with some ppl here, these 2 don’t have that chemistry yet to pull off a good match. Either way, they shine in their respective gimmicks. I know Naomi can have a good match, even tho they really haven’t let her have THAT match, as for Alexa I’m not 100% yet. She’s growing tho, for her short time in wrestling.

  • Don Prima

    I honestly feel for Naomi. Naomi just needs that one A+ storyline involving big names to get the crowd fully behind her. Like Trish with Vince, AJ with DB/Punk/Kane, Kaitlyn with the Eve/Aksana fiasco, or even Torrie Wilson with the storyline where Dawn Marie was her stepmother. Creative simply needs to put Naomi OUT there. I feel she’s capable if given the right story to tell.

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      They don’t even need to give her that type of push, they just need to book her correctly, give her character development, and get her a storyline..

      • Don Prima

        I’d like it if they’d revolve her pursuit of the Championship around being the last of the NXT season 3 Divas standing in WWE today.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          That’s what they were doing when she was a heel in the beginning. Talking about the fact that she was in the same season as Aj on NXT, Aj left and is seen as a champion while she’s still there not getting an opportunity. Unfortunately, this didn’t lead anywhere in the long term. The fact is, she should have stayed as a heel. Making her a face with such a character was totally the LAST THING she needed.

          • Don Prima

            I didn’t know that. I stopped watching WWE in 2012/13ish. That sucks for Naomi. :(

      • Mark

        They already tried. She had a great character, a good look and was way better in the ring as a heel. And on the mic too. Now she’s a dancing clown because she wanted this gimmick. She could have been the bad ass bitch on Smackdown who “ran the place.” Ambushed other women backstage, hit them in the face with a weapon, come out and cut promo’s demanding to be respected and taken seriously, etc. She ruined her own chances.

        • Shan

          Um, you know creative has to book all that right? And after they took Sasha out of the group they forgot all about Naomi and Tamina so yeah. All that stuff you said she could have done they didn’t let her do before so why would they let her do that now?

          • Mark

            Because she could have done it on Smackdown with way less competition around and a better chance of getting a push. But Naomi HERSELF said she WENT to Vince and the glow in the dark clown costume babyface cheesy BS was all her idea. Smackdown was her chance to be the ruthless bitch of the division and she ruined it by wanting to become Emma dancer 2.0 but even more embarrassing because you could tell Emma was joking around but Naomi comes out like she’s in an actual dancing competition. That is not a championship worthy gimmick. That is a pure jobber gimmick and she choose it for herself.

          • carlos

            Or Maybe its because she is a trained dancer. You sound stupid bruh

          • Mark

            Yeah and Becky Lynch was a stewardess. Maybe she should come to the ring in Britney Spears’ Toxic outfit. And Trish Stratus studied to be a doctor, maybe she should have had a doctor gimmick. You’re the one who sounds stupid. Naomi has lame ideas and is the reason for her lack of success in the WWE. When the WWE took control and tried to make her amazing, she wanted to go back to a stupid dancing gimmick but this time even worst while she glows in the dark and looks like a clown.

          • carlos

            Wooooow I can’t believe it, i never knew how dumb somebody could be and sound. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f9400349a40e062a1cbec1e23859fcf9af813fd5b70c4327150fc5c9bc8c9db7.gif

          • Mark

            Yeah I’m the one who sounds stupid for not supporting Naomi bringing her stupid dancing past into her WWE gimmick.

        • Naomi didn’t ruin her own chances. She would have been damned on RAW or Smackdown because she would still be less of a priority than the 4HW. There have been girls with much less to offer than Naomi and have still been pushed to the moon and back. She’s just unfortunately the one who is always overlooked.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

          It’s true that in that sense, she definitely participated in her own downfall wanting this character in first place which is something I have never understood.. But then again, nothing is over yet so who knows what’s gonna happen.. She’s talented, given the right storyline, she could do great things.

    • Geek God

      Right Naomi is sooooo close to being mega popular she’s just missing that one big storyline, the Usos have lost all they’re popularity so she can’t use them to get over, Any suggestions on a big Naomi storyline? I’m hoping for something that involves her winning her 1st title in her hometown at next years wrestlemania

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Honestly, the match was boring. The action wasn’t necessarily exciting and nothing really special happened. As many pointed this out, they don’t have much chemistry together.

    The crowd didn’t care about that match at all and this didn’t help but let’s be real, how a match involving a girl who’s not necessarily popular for her incredible in-ring skills (Alexa and I am saying she is bad at all) and a girl who’s been a complete non factor on her brand (Naomi) can elicited much reactions right after a show like SD?…

    Naomi is uninteresting.. She honestly a joke right now and her character may never allow her to be look that credible. That “character” she has is about her dancing and saying “glow time” every once in a which is crap.
    Now, unlike many people, I know she will get an opportunity because there’s only so many women that Naomi will get there at one point but for real, until that, I have no interest in watching unfortunately and it’s too bad because she’s a great performer.

    • Mark

      If she’s such a great performer then why are her matches so bad?

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Saying it as if it was a generality is one thing I can’t agree with. Watch her work as a heel where in terms of in-ring performance she was truly at her best. I can’t say that she’s been that impressive since the brand split in the ring but like, nothing horrible really. She’s a talented.

  • glassjaw

    Lesson learned: say nothing of Naomi unless it’s to kiss her ass.

  • TheG.O.A.T

    Crowd was absolutely ass for this match. Main problem I have with the SD roster is the lack of investment from the crowd during their matches. Crowd always pays them dust.

  • Diva_Fan

    I like doing how physical this match was with Naomi different kicks and also Alexa pushing Naomi to the turnbuckle !

    I actually enjoyed the match and was very much a fan of what Naomi did in the ring. Still waiting on that Naomi push, WWE… STILL waiting

  • vdcvt

    The match was decent IMO, yes a little slow but still a decent match. I liked the aggressiveness towards the end. I really hope Alexa and Naomi develop some better chemistry together. This match was definitely an improvement than their first. I really want to see the fluid and aggressive Alexa from NXT. She’s there on SD, but not completely yet.

  • i enjoyed this match and i thought they meshed well together

  • Robann

    This match was decent. Not bad and not good either. It’s hilarious how people are actually trying to compare a vet’s skills to someone who is rather new to the ring. Don’t get me wrong, I LIVE for Alexa but it’s laughable that people are really trying to big her up, while tearing Naomi down. Naomi has had WHOLE interviews, photo-shoots, segments, and twitter rants about her gimmick, the meaning behind it and so on. Why tf are ya’ll still saying “what’s her gimmick?”.
    Until ya’ll realize how much of a disgrace it is that Naomi is NOT champion yet, we’re gonna KEEP shoving down ya’ll throats just how great she really is. Ya’ll do it with the 4HW, ya’ll did it with Trish and Lita. Why can’t we do the same? The same people who are getting upset, talking about “Oh if we say one bad thing about her the fans will chew us apart” are the same ones going under other posts writing “Such and such SUCKS. She only at the top because of (some ignorant and false reason)”. You can’t do that.
    Get used to it. Until TRINITY FATU gets the Women’s title that she’s deserved for over 5 years, get used to her fans speaking out about it. PERIOD.

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    This match was actually bad, Alexa’s move-set is very simple as a heel and I need her to incorporate moves that she used when she was face so she can showcase her talent, what she is capable to do in the ring. Being heel or face shouldn’t change their wrestling style completely. As a heel she should be more agressive but still she needs to be as athletic. While she can pull her character to perfection and that’s the reason she is getting great reactions from fans, her in ring work leaves me with doubts. Her match with Becky at the main event wasn’t stellar at all compared to how RAW has been doing, none of her matches with Naomi are good at all (these girls lack of chemistry for real) and my thing is that her move-set is not as physical as it should be.
    Naomi is really nice and entertaining to see but then she barely gets reactions because she won’t play with them. She looks serious and pissed off in ther matches, is like her heel personality is still there when she wrestle. While she is athletic she is often very messy too and somehow that dissapoints me because I really like her and see the potential but is not in full effect never. She is not fluid in the ring with her offense and selling and her move-set is never in full display. I’m hoping we can get a Naomi vs Becky but then I’m afraid she would mess that up.

  • Joseph

    This whole board is giving me a headache.

  • Cailumm #NikkiStan

    Pretty solid match, other than that I don’t really have much else to say…

    Wow is this Diva Dirt or have I stumbled across a forum about racial issues..??

  • Mark

    So the two most overrated women in the WWE women’s division had a match on Main Event. They got more then enough time. And for me, they proved why they’re so overrated. Forgetful, boring, generic match. They had no idea what to do with all the time they got. Should have just got 5-6 minutes. I’d love to hear why Naomi and Alexa are so amazing now.

    • Shan

      Question. Would it have been better if they did stuff that could get them seriously injured like Charlotte and Sasha do all the time? That just the other day people on DD were complaining about because they were worried C or S might end up ending their careers for?

      • Mark

        Ring psychology has nothing to do with big spots. Go watch Trish vs Mickie at New Years Revolution. Go watch an Alicia Fox match on Superstars from like 2012. Go watch Michelle McCool vs Maryse during Maryse’s first Diva’s title reign. This match was boring and you’re lying if you say otherwise. They had no idea what to do with the time. Naomi, a babyface, went for a headlock 3-4 minutes into the match. LOL. The crowd was dead. The most exciting part of the whole match was Alexa reversing the corner bulldog from Naomi and Naomi hitting her face on the top turnbuckle. This match was awful and proves how overrated these women are. They have yet to impress or pull off some solid work. Alexa is overrated because she is an over-exaggerated heel with over-exgerrated facial expressions and Naomi is overrated because she does her sloppy spot monkey stuff that if she doesn’t already botch, it looks like she’s about to botch but saves it in the last second.

        • Shan

          So you’re going on the assumption that I’ve watched none of these. Ok. I have not been a fan of any of these women with the exception of Alicia Fox although I can acknowledge they put on good matches. Honestly I can’t understand the hubbub about any of them (except Michelle, Alicia and Mickie) but I abstain from insulting them because they worked hard to do what they did.

          That said, I’ve seen the crowd dead on so many occasions I don’t particularly care about them right now. They cheer for their favourites so I didn’t expect a huge noise for these two women.

          Those headlocks lasted about 2 seconds each so that’s negligent. The fact that those two spots were the most exciting to you, the spots where it looked like Naomi had broken her neck says a lot. Alexa is praised because she’s arguably the best talker they have right now. Looking at the other women on the SD roster no one else compares. And the wrestlers are supposed to be over-exaggerated caricatures. The best ones usually are.

          Not going to argue about Naomi because you obviously hate her and anything about her you immediately despise. What amuses me when people call her sloppy is that they do that to Alicia as well. And she’s probably the best seller they have. The problem with sloppiness is when people get hurt. I have yet to see her hurt anyone or get seriously hurt by anything she did. And since most of the women seem to like working with her I’ll assume no one is afraid of being hurt by her ‘sloppiness’ either.

          • Mark

            Making more and more excuses for Alexa’s and Naomi’s awful matches. And Alexa the best talker in the women’s division? LOL.

            Look at Trish Stratus as a heel. Look at Melina. Look at Stephanie McMahon. Look back at Molly Holly. Beth Phoenix. They come off so genuine. So real. Like real bad ass bitches. Alexa comes across like she tries too hard, there’s nothing genuine about how she portrays a heel or her mic skills.

            I don’t despise Naomi, I just think it’s complete BS how overrated a woman like her is. She has been around for years and still has nothing to show for it. Not one incredible match, not one incredible promo – nothing. Her fans overhype her for her spot monkey moves and now they’re praising her for a glow in the dark clown dancing gimmick. It’s just so pathetic. Is this for real?

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Everybody has opinions doesn’t make yours right I’m not a Naomi fan and yes at times I feel her fans do overrate her but they have a right to like who they want I’m a big Alexa fan she’s Avg in the ring but she’s a good heel and beautiful and has a bright future

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            We all have different opinions doesn’t make your opinion right or wrong you think you know everything good lord get off this site

          • Mark

            If you can’t handle my opinion, then YOU need to get off this site. I’m coming with facts and evidence to support my claim. Not delusions like “Alexa is so gud on duh mic nd Naomi is so gud in duh ring.” Where? Show me. They just had three matches together and all 3 were awful. The first one was Botchamania gold.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            They don’t have good chemistry everybody on this site has admitted to it

          • Mark

            What about Becky’s first title defense against Alexa? What’s your excuse for that? Another boring generic match.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            That’s your opinion I’ve heard a lot more people priasing that match then crapping on it

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            + Alexa has only been wrestling for what 2 or 3 years she hasn’t reached her peak yet she’s like 24 give her a chance good lord

          • Shan

            Bruh. You literally went back years to find those women. Stay with me here. In THIS women’s division she’s the best talker. And Stephanie isn’t in the women’s division.

            Alexa is like 5 feet. Ever heard of the Napolean Complex? It fits perfectly with her character and explains everything. They came off as genuine? Really? Because I always assumed there was no way they’d act like that for real. And like I said, she’s an over-exaggerated caricature. It’s not supposed to be genuine. The fact that you hate her shows she’s doing her job. She said she tried to find annoying traits about people and act like that so, she’s doing what she’s set out to do since it annoys you so much.

            Don’t even start on her not having an incredible match nor promo. That is so much crap. Nikki Bella hasn’t had either of those but how long was her reign again? Eva Marie has done what exactly to get her pushes? Don’t try when we all know great talent in those areas mean about 0 when it comes to the WWE. The 4HW barely got in due to Triple H and he still has to listen to Vince which is why we barely see Emma and Dana Brooke is on my TV.

          • Mark

            I’m not annoyed with her character, I’m annoyed with her because she’s not delivering. There’s a difference. Nothing more then I love then a cocky troll heel that can piss people off. Heck, Nancy Grace isn’t even acting on television but I love her because she riles people up so much. Alexa is just not a natural on the mic. I gave you examples of women who were naturals on the mic. Alexa doesn’t come close. Alexa isn’t what I consider someone who is good on the mic. You think I’m angry at her character when I’m angry over the lack of talent and how over-hyped she is. She is athletic, smooth and decent in the ring but that’s it. She still doesn’t know how to put together a match, doesn’t understand wrestling psychology and can only produce basic, boring matches and has no idea what to do if she gets a lot of time. Naomi is the same except Naomi is not on Alexa’s level of technical wrestling.

            Nikki Bella to me sucks and only got that reign because she was hot and marketable. Eva Marie has not gotten any kind of push. Dana Brooke sucks in the ring and should be back at NXT. Emma offers absolutely nothing but her incredible wrestling skills, which is why she will always be a jobber. No charisma, no mic skills just pure wrestling talent.

          • Shan

            I’m sorry but I’m insanely amused right now. You’re mad at a woman who has been with the WWE all of 2-3 years and expect her to be on the level of women in their prime? And you’re mad because people like her acting in a sea of bad-acting right now? Really? Your’re mad at HER for people liking her?

            And Naomi isn’t on Alexa’s level of technical wrestling? Ok I’m done. You are so against Naomi that you hate everything she does. People who know her and work with her say she’s an amazing wrestler but you know differently because you see her for 2 minutes on TV once a week. People who train wrestlers says she’s great but nah. You know differently.

            ‘Eva Marie has not gotten any kind of push’. ‘EMMA offers ABSOLUTELY NOTHING but her incredible wrestling skills.’ Lol. I’m done. I can’t. I’m out. You keep believing what you want and I’ll keep believing what I want.

          • Mark

            Truth tea hurts. Jumping around and delivering botchy spot monkey moves has nothing to do with technical wrestling. Stephanie McMahon had amazing promo’s when she was new. So did Melina. And so did Ivory. Dawn Marie was also another natural bitch. McCool always sucked on the mic but as soon as she turned heel, the night she attacked Maria, you saw the shift in her face and you saw her become a golden heel. Alexa is just not a natural, sorry.

            Emma doesn’t offer anything except her wrestling skills. This is a fact. She sucks on the mic, has no presence and has no charisma. So what else DOES she offer other then her awesome wrestling skills? Nothing. She’ll be the one putting over the women who can’t wrestle like her but are way more charismatic and well-rounded then her. That’s life.

  • Shan

    ‘Naomi trying to prove that she should be in that championship conversation. She’s been consistently good for a long time Tom.’ Basically what about every commentator says whenever commenting about Naomi in the ring. That said, although I’m in the minority, I liked this match. It shows that Naomi and Alexa are beginning to work better together. It wasn’t mind-blowing but it was interesting. I like that they told a story with it.

    Also, I have no idea what the huge problem is with either woman. Alexa is a great talker and has excellent facial expressions. Her ringwork is OK. She hasn’t done anything to really impress me yet so I can’t comment much about her. Although I’m pro-Alexa because she’s short and as a fellow shorty, I approve.

    Now onto Naomi. This woman is hella polarizing it seems. When I see the hate on her I laugh at the utter absurdity. If she does flashy moves (that are praised when other women do it) she’s a spot-monkey. When she tones down those moves (like other women do) she’s boring. She just cannot win. What I find is that so often Naomi has to slow down to work with other women. It’s frustrating. And then people call crap on her. I adore Naomi because not only is she good in the ring but she seems like a genuinely sweet person. I’m also pro-Naomi because when I first saw her and how unapologetically black she was I was elated. And her butt! It was like, finally! Someone I can relate to! Happiness. And then I had to sit for 7 years and watched the woman be crapped on by the WWE. And then by women’s wrestling ‘fans’ for foolishness. I can’t.

    • Mark

      Well that’s great that you praise these women and hype them up to the moon but then where is the proof? Where are the receipts? Two of Smackdown’s most over-hyped women and these are the type of matches they’re having? What’s the excuse now?

      • Shan

        Lol, I’m not hyping anyone to the moon and you clearly want to argue. My proof about Alexa’s acting skills is anytime she gets on the mic compared to any of the other women as you’ve seen, since I assume you watch Smackdown. The proof about Naomi’s being able to polarize is available if you scroll down a little. I mean, you’re one of the people who seem to despise her so much. Or hey, read any comment section on DD when she has a match. Or go on her twitter. Or anything that allows you to comment on anything Naomi related. Watching Naomi training with Jimmy as opposed to with someone like Alexa you can see she slows down. Or with Ariane as opposed to Natalya. I’m not blaming the women since I think most of them have to adapt to her in-ring style as she has to with theirs.

        And as to Naomi being crapped on? Name one woman who has been there about as long as Naomi contemporarily and hasn’t had a title reign or a significant feud.

        And bruh, over-hyped? I think you’re getting them confused with Becky and Nikki. Smackdown barely pees on Naomi. I have no idea why Alexa is in the title picture already but psssh. At least she’s fairly entertaining.

        • Mark

          What Alexa promos? Those awful promos that Diva Dirt smarks over-hype? I’m not sure when you started watching wrestling but I grew up with Stephanie McMahon, Ivory and Trish Stratus on the mic. I also remember heel Melina slaying on the mic and Mickie delivering flawless promo’s as her psycho character. Alexa’s half-assed, forced, overrated and awful promo’s don’t impress me. She is the most overrated woman in WWE today. Charlotte is not anything amazing on the mic but these last few weeks she has shat on Alexa and the entire women’s roster with her mic skills. What are these promo skills people keep trying to push on Alexa? Jesus.

          Tell me why Naomi is even worth investing in. Why should she get opportunities? For her dancing Funkadactyls cheerleading BS? She was only solid during her heel run but unfortunately got overshadowed when Sasha and the other women debuted. And now she’s a dancing glow in the dark clown. This is not Championship material. And on top of that, none of her matches are delivering. None.

          We just saw THREE matches with the two most over-hyped women on the women’s roster by Diva Dirt fans and not ONE of them was good. Not even CLOSE to being good, let alone amazing. They botched up their first match, the second one was awful and this was just plain boring and they didn’t know what to do with the time. And more and more excuses keep coming up while Sasha and Charlotte are suicide diving eachother through the ropes and moonsaulting eachother from the rampway. The matches start intense, filled with anger and passion and end intense.

          Alexa and Naomi are supposed to be Becky’s main contenders and they don’t even show it. Basic, boring matches with no passion. No psychology. Nothing.

          • Shan

            You both of them. It is obvious. And it is fueled by your living in the past. Those women are gone. And it is also obvious that Charlotte, Sasha, and Bayley to some extent, get way more preferential treatment in the WWE. Hell, they call H ‘Daddy Hunter’ or something like that. The man clearly loves them and it shows with how they’re booked. Who exactly is getting all the great stipulation matches and so much time to showcase themselves and their moves? Who has been pushed to the moon on NXT and now on RAW?

            Naomi shows up and works. People who actually know her and work with her have said it numerous times. They have said repeatedly that she is amazing inside and outside of the ring and they are actually in the business. Every time she is in the ring a commentator says something about it.

            I’m not about to explain her gimmick to you when it’s been done by her and those below numerous times.

            Naomi is a main contender? Since when? And they arean’t booked to be particularly angry or passionate about each other. They’re just battling for a spot. And your opinion isn’t law. If you don’t like them, fine. But don’t get mad and point out all of the reasons you think they’re awful just because I like them.

          • Mark

            More and more excuses as to why the amazing Naomi and goddess Alexa aren’t delivering. What stipulation match do these women deserve if they can’t even pull off an awesome singles match? Are you kidding me?

            And what opportunities? Alexa and Becky had a contract signing. They got A LOT of time for their title match. Naomi and Alexa had 3 matches already and they both got a good enough time, this match in particular was super long. What kind of booking are Sasha and Charlotte getting that the women on Smackdown aren’t? They aren’t getting anything better. The difference is whenever they have a match, they SLAY it. They ALWAYS pull through. And the amazing Naomi and goddess Alexa haven’t been able to do that ONCE. It doesn’t matter if you’re the main event or in the middle of the card, it’s about match quality that none of the SD girls have been able to deliver in.

            You have a choice to love them and I have a reason as to why I don’t think they are good. That’s how it works. And I love how you’re trying to say the Raw women are better because of booking when all this site talks about 85% of the time is how bad Sasha and Charlotte are being booked.

            It’s one excuse after the next. You can like whoever you want but don’t be delusional when clearly they aren’t delivering. I love Carmella but she hasn’t delivered the way I hoped she would either. Because to me, she had the most potential on the mic out of all the women in WWE.

  • Put the argument to rest…we know why people don’t like Naomi… who cares! I wouldn’t argue with any racists, you’ll get no where at all. But to the match itself. .. it was very slow pace but I get the story behind it. Alexa played to the common heel tactics and Naomi played the dominant face. Okay match, but I wish WWE would let Naomi wrestle like she did in FCW. More grounded with a bit of unorthodox attacks. I can only dream though.

    • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

      Only problem I got is just cuz somebody isn’t a fan of Naomi that doesn’t mean we are racist

      • Only problem I have is that I could care less about how anyone feels about Naomi. Dang…my bad it’s not a problem. Just the same as I don’t bash any of the women because they all got strengths and weaknesses. .. it would be nice to see them all supported for working hard to give a great show. But to go out your way to constantly say what you just don’t like about a woman, especially one specific lady says a lot about the underline issue.

        • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

          People bash Alexa on here but that’s fine but if somebody says anything about Naomi people get butt hurt that’s the underline issue

          • I don’t care about Ms. Bliss…I like her work. But you obviously have some issues that I can’t help you with. Cheer for who you want, I really don’t care. I’m posting my thoughts on the match and as I said previously. . I won’t waste my time to go back and forth. Have a great day.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Issue is people are accusing people who don’t like Naomi as racist which is stupid but when somebody says Alexa sucks or Alexa is overrated or Alexa don’t deserve a push people ignore it but Naomi gets that they get pissed

          • Did I bash Alexa? Overrated is an opinion, not a fact unless we all agree and it is proven. So argument is indeed invalid. Let it go. .. Alexa is white, Naomi is black. Equal in gender, but not in praise. That is history in itself. .. I, unlike many others, accept however you or anyone feels about either woman. If I go out my way to bash Alexa, we can have a great conversation. Otherwise, just let it go.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            But if I say Naomi to overrated people come for my head I have always said she’s a good athlete and a above avg wrestler and praised her b4

          • Then they just come for you. State your point and move forward. If you know you aren’t racist, then why argue your character? You like who you like.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Post like these are exactly why diva dirt deleted the comment section a while back

          • Well, that is fine if they do. We have had a fairly decent conversation, however there are limits to respect. I’m not going to bash anyone, that makes being a fan of women’s wrestling pointless.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Wish more people had your attitude but 99% don’t

          • And like I said, I wouldn’t argue with one. I never claimed you were racist or any Alexa fan, but I’m quite sure there are people who post here who are and that is the underline issue. Fine, you don’t like Naomi…but what does bashing her do for you? She works hard, Alexa works hard. The difference comes in calling the woman a clown and saying the other is a Queen. Big difference. ..time to grow up and be who you are. I accept the latter, but I won’t argue the point. I’ve told you the underline issue. ..what are you ignoring or choosing not to understand?

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Naomi has fans Alexa has fans Naomi has haters Alexa has haters but my point is why is the Naomi fans who bash other women mad when another fan bashes Naomi

          • They are mad in how the bashing is chosen to be displayed. Who calls a black woman a clown, though she has a background in dancing. It’s a character. ..also something that Naomi is. .. a dancer. Say she dances like one, but she looks like one? The statement carries the meaning. ..it’s not what you say, but how you say it.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            I love Alexa I don’t like Naomi why I’m a tag a racist just cuz I don’t like a black women people are equal so why should me or anybody have to watch what we say about anybody

          • Say what you want, you’ll get the result of what you say. I didn’t come to your post or anyone else’s. .so there isn’t much more I can say.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            If I came out here and called Naomi all kind of racist names then I would completely understand why people are coming for me but simply saying I’m not a big Naomi but I like Alexa I get tagged racist that’s 100% wrong

          • Fine, but I didn’t say anything to you at first. I tried to just help. I’m explaining the logic that you don’t understand.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            And I’m explaining the logic that you must not understand

          • I understand just fine, which is why i let you explain and didn’t retort your logic. I’m fine with how you feel, it’s just others who aren’t.

    • Darren C. #ItCouple #Cesaro

      Just because some people didn’t Like her they’re racist? Jazz & Jacqueline are on my top 20, I already dated 2 black guys and I have a lot of Black people and idols, but just because I don’t like Naomi I’m racist?

  • Naomi’s great, Alexa’s pretty good. But man when they wrestle they have absolutely no chemistry whatsoever. I don’t know if they aren’t on good terms in real life or what but it shows in all their matches. Naomi has had much better matches, she almost seems to slow herself down for Alexa.

      Some people just don’t match up good together that’s all it is I’ve seen matches that 2 people who are good have a bad match cuz they have no chemistry both are better than what shows when they fight

      • Alexa’s not a bad wrestler, but she’s certainly not on Naomi’s level. They’re both high flyers, but Alexa has to tone it down because she’s a heel, and Naomi has to hold herself back because Alexa isn’t strong enough to really take a lot of Naomi’s moves.

          Alexa is new and hasn’t peaked

          Alexa a high flyer? I wouldn’t say that…

  • If they actually let this Harley Quinn reject get the title from Becky when she’s not even on Becky’s level in term of in-ring ability (and let’s not get started on that crappy DDT)

    • Her insult to injury move is beautiful though.

    This match put me to sleep quickly than Lana Del Rey songs

  • The Queen #BlissPlease

    These 2 has zero chemistry at all! I just wish Alexa does better this TLC.
