WWE has officially announced that Alicia Fox will replace Alexa Bliss to team up with Mickie James and face Lita and Trish Stratus. The company has not reported on the reason for the substitution, although it has been confirmed that Alexa Bliss will be at the corner of Fox and James. In turn, it has been confirmed that Alicia Fox will not participate in the Battle Royal.
Recall that Alex Bliss was allegedly injured last weekend at the house show that WWE held in Hartford. Bliss formed a team with Mickie James to face Ronda Rousey and Nia Jax, and in the final moments of the match suffered some kind of injury. Several of those present indicated that Bliss ended the fight with a broken nose and many media did not want to echo the news. A few days later, Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer reported that Alexa Bliss suffered a concussion.
Alexa Bliss did not appear in the Boston Supershow or in this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. Her appearance in Evolution was in the air, although Mickie James assured on Thursday, in Sirius MX, that her teammate would be in safety in WWE Evolution. “I know she’s recovering, I’ve tried to talk to her every day and she’s getting better every day.” Obviously, we know that this is not ballet and that it’s part of the business, in the end, it’s the best thing for her and her health, “said Mickie James.
Remember that WWE is very scrupulous with this type of injuries and tries not to give many details, unless it happens live and is very evident, as in the case of Liv Morgan, who suffered a commotion on Monday Night Raw several weeks ago and was unconscious for a few seconds.
