The No. 1 babyface Diva sure does cry a lot.
Does anyone recall ever seeing Mick Foley shed some tears after being thrown off the cage in the Hell in a Cell? Did Shane McMahon turn on the waterworks when his testicles were hooked up to a car battery? Did The Undertaker cry after he was buried alive by his own brother?
WWE makes its women stars cry because, well they're women. If someone breaks their heart, they're unable to compete. If someone calls them a loser (like The Bellas did to Natalya), they break down.
The way the company portrays the Divas is pretty sexist.
For crowds to get behind babyfaces, they need to be tough. They need to swear revenge when tricked and then act out on it. Male or female, it shouldn't matter. Fans watch wrestling to see their heroes stand up for themselves, not break down into an emotional wreck when they're fooled or teased.
You can see that fans aren't buying into it, as displayed by Layla consoling Kaitlyn after her loss to AJ at Payback. The boos said it all.
WWE has had powerful female figures in the past like Trish Stratus and Lita, hopefully it can remember that soon, so we can stop with this bad middle-school drama.
