Vince McMahon has finally decided to respond to the thousands of WWE fans that were furious by what they saw on Monday Night Raw.
After this week's edition of Raw, the hashtag of #GiveDivasAChance trended not only in the United States but WorldWide for just under 24 hours, with fans disgruntled at the way the WWE treats it's women wrestlers.
Well a day later and Vince McMahon has finally decided to respond. The fact that he only used five words in that response probably tells you all you need to know.
"We hear you. Keep watching. #GiveDivasAChance" is all that McMahon had to say on the subject that so clearly meant a great deal to a large part of the WWE Universe.

This comes after former WWE Divas champion AJ Lee went on a mini rant of her own on Twitter, where she directed her frustrations towards Stephanie McMahon rather than her father.
"Your female wrestlers have record selling merchandise & have starred in the highest rated segment of the show several times...And yet they receive a fraction of the wages & screen time of the majority of the male roster. #UseYourVoice," Lee said towards McMahon.
The unrest all stems from Monday's edition of Raw, where the Divas division got a grand total of one 30 second match in the entirety of the three hour show. That equates to a grand total of 0.27% of the show!
That is quite frankly embarrassing for the WWE. NXT has show us that a women's division can be exciting with incredible 20 minute long matches between the likes of Charlotte and Sasha Banks drawing rave reviews.
Even the name is a complete joke. Divas. Is Vince serious? The men get to be called Superstars and the women are essentially a derogatory term. That has to change immediately.
No wonder Brie Bella said that if she was in NXT she'd reject a call up to the WWE. Those were her actual words. That's how bad it is to be a female wrestler working for Vince McMahon. Let's hope this all brings about some actual change.
