Is it too early to call the Divas Revolution in the WWE a failure? Because it feels like a failure.
The WWE Universe wanted to love this so much and the enthusiasm at the start was incredible, but that has all gone in the past few weeks thanks to a combination of no story line, poor matches and terrible booking in general.
And it looks like WWE legend and part-time star Chris Jericho agrees with all of those sentiments.

On a recent edition of his podcast "Talk is Jericho" on Podcast One, Jericho spoke about the so-called Revolution and how it has managed to fall flat on its face.
Recently on Talk Is Jericho, Chris Jericho spoke critically about the so-called Divas Revolution in WWE. In Jericho's view, the biggest problem in the WWE today is "the tale of two cities for the Divas Revolution."
No Character Depth
As an example, Jericho said that one of the best two matches at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn was Sasha Banks vs. Bailey for the NXT Women's Championship, and then two nights later, one of the worst segments on RAW was Miz TV with the divas and then the divas match. Y2J criticized the complete lack of character depth.
"You can't push nine people at once. You can't. They introduced too many people in too short a timeframe and put them all together and mixed them all together, so now it's just one big wash," Jericho said.
According to Jericho, too many NXT talent have been brought to the main roster at once and just because WWE brings NXT talent to the main roster and give them time to perform, it does not really matter when the time they are given is not quality time.
Jericho isn't wrong, but unfortunately for the WWE, the Divas involved, and the fans, Vince McMahon hasn't yet created time travel to undo the terrible booking.
