Fans react to the change in title name

There have been mixed reactions to WWE’s decision to rebrand the NXT title. Some fans believe that WWE should continue with the gender identifiers before the titles. However, they should make more concerted efforts to create a more gender-neutral work environment with equal opportunities to both sexes. Many claimed that WWE should turn to a meritocracy-based system when it came to awarding matches to wrestlers.

Fans also pointed out the lack of logic behind having two titles of the same name on a single brand. One of the tweets from a fan said that unless the black and gold brand decided to unify the NXT titles, it made no sense to drop the term ‘women’ from the NXT women’s championship.
