    Short matches on WWE television are very common, but the fact that the only divas match on a three-hour show got this amount of time has had people take to Twitter to protest the treatment of the WWE diva division.

    #GiveDivasAChance became a trending topic on Twitter within minutes of the match finishing, with fans protesting the little airtime the WWE divas receive on WWE TV.
