Must read: Replacement of Roman Reigns on WWE Raw
Alexa Bliss was out of action on WWE Raw since Hell in a Cell passed by. It was around the same show that WWE let us knew that they booked her in a dream match for Evolution. Trish Stratus would be her opponent in the first-ever all-women PPV. Later they changed it into a tag team battle. Trish Stratus and Lita will team up against Alexa Bliss and Mickie James.
The match is still intact to happen at Evolution PPV event. But the problem is Alexa Bliss is dealing with an undisclosed concussion. PWInsider.com reported about the injury picked up by former WWE Raw women’s champion. Now, WWE has confirmed the concussion and Alicia Fox will be replacing her in the tag match.
We should let you know that WWE kept Alexa Bliss aside from in-ring competition for a long time. She appeared on WWE Raw but never featured in competition just to get enough time to heal up. But WWE never revealed the injury to us which was potentially minor. She was probably over with it at last weekend’s house show.
But the comeback to the squared circle turned out to be fatal for her. She re-injured her against Ronda Rousey causing to sit back at home. This week’s WWE Raw did not witness her either to hype up Evolution. This was a major hint that the problem did not go away, at all. So the tag team match will not take place as per the schedule. WWE had to replace Alexa Bliss at the last moment.
However, her tag partner Mickie James hinted that she was doing okay. She has recently spoken to Busted Open Radio to confirm that Alexa Bliss will attend the Evolution PPV. Mickie was there to protect her during the entire match. WWE converted it into a tag team action keeping this in mind in the first place.
Check out the comments from Mickie James that hints Alexa Bliss will be in the corner of her partner at Evolution, (courtesy wwfoldschool.com)
“She’ll definitely be there on Sunday. I know she’s getting better. I try and talk to her every day and she’s getting better. Obviously, we know this isn’t ballet and it comes with the territory so you know as long as it’s what’s best for business and her long-term health and everything else like that. So I have no doubts that regardless we’ll all be out there and it will be amazing.”
