Despite her heightened profile in recent weeks, the WWE Universe remains largely indifferent to Kaitlyn, yet another obstacle in her way as she attempts to gain the Divas Championship.
After all, how can WWE give the belt to someone who is clearly not over with the fans?
This is unfortunate, but not altogether surprising. After all, WWE's booking team has barely used her since she won NXT season three, two years ago.
Following her victory on NXT, Kaitlyn, spent some time on SmackDown, forming the short-lived "Chickbusters" tag team with AJ Lee, before quickly being forgotten about. She then found herself banished back to the internet-only NXT (now called NXT: Redemption) where she participated in a long-running comedy romance angle with Derrick Bateman, Maxine and Johnny Curtis.
Since NXT: Redemption ended, Kaitlyn has made only sporadic appearances on Raw and SmackDown, becoming yet another Diva the company refuses to do anything with.
No wonder the fans can't/won't react to Kaitlyn in her new role as No. 1 Contender; they've barely gotten the chance to know her!
