Whether Alexa Bliss loses the Raw Women’s Title at WrestleMania remains to be seen. But The Goddess took two L’s on Raw — one literal and one metaphorical — sending her to The Showcase of the Immortals with a lot of ground to cover if she wants to retain her championship against a furious Nia Jax, whom Bliss has insulted for the better part of two weeks now.
The first of Bliss’ losses on Raw came in a tag team match that teamed her and Mickie James against Dana Brooke and Asuka, who’ll challenge for the SmackDown Women’s Title at The Show of Shows this Sunday. That in and of itself was something of a shocker, as Alexa and Mickie isolated Dana for almost the entire match and only allowed her to reach Asuka by the tips of her fingers. Once The Empress of Tomorrow did enter the bout, however, Mickie succumbed to the Asuka Lock in relatively short order.
Alexa and Mickie did get the jump on Asuka and Dana in a post-match attack, but Nia — who vowed to “squash Alexa like a bug” in a backstage interview — quickly hit the scene, pulverizing James with a Samoan Drop while Bliss ran scared up the ramp, ending her night on the second disappointment in almost as many minutes. The good news for the champion, at least, is that she’ll have a chance to avenge these shortcomings on Sunday. The bad news is, there won’t be any escape this time around.
