Alexa Bliss announced last week that she would be holding a press conference on Raw in advance of the Raw Women’s Championship Match between Ronda Rousey and Nia Jax at WWE TLC.
Jax and Tamina joined Bliss in the ring, and “The Irresistible Force” unloaded with a verbal assault on “The Baddest Women on the Planet.” Rousey then emerged ready to fight and Bliss left the ring without even talking.
According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Bliss was supposed to carry the segment, but she had a bad cold and a weak voice. WWE decided to not let her speak and she left the ring before Rousey arrived.
“Bliss had a bad cold and a very weak voice. She was supposed to have a long promo on the show but the decision was made for her not to speak which is why they sent her out there for a segment she was supposed to carry, that Jax ended up carrying, and she just left before the interaction with Rousey started,” Meltzer wrote.
Alexa said herself on Tuesday that’s sick.
In an update on the situation, Alexa said Thursday that she was finally getting over her cold.
