Today in History: A 30-Second match sparks the #GiveDivasAChance movement


On this day in history:

February 23rd, 2015 | A routine tag match pitting Brie and Nikki Bella against Emma and Paige became anything but when it ended in the blink of an eye – 30 seconds, to be exact. This moment served as a tipping point for frustrated fans, who took to Twitter to vent using the hashtag #GiveDivasAChance. The hashtag would quickly trend worldwide, leading to the fans’ pleas being highlighted in several high profile publications and referenced several times on WWE television. Though the movement didn’t result in immediate change, it likely served as the basis for the “Diva Revolution” storyline created by the WWE four months later.
