• Alexa Bliss Comments On Her Cancelled Match With WWE Hall Of Famer
While speaking to Charlotte Wilder of FOX, former RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss discussed the match she was supposed to have at WWE Evolution in 2018, which later got turned into a Tag Team match. The Tag Team match also got scrapped after Bliss suffered a concussion.
Below is what Alexa said:
“It was tough. I was supposed to have a match against Trish Stratus in the beginning. I watched Trish growing up. I loved Trish. Everything that I did in NXT, I tried to emulate Trish like her attitude. So it was like getting a match with your WWE hero. I was so excited.
Then it got turned into a tag match, which was even cooler because then I was gonna get in the ring with Trish and Lita with Mickie James as my partner. What’s better than having a match with Trish? Having a match with Trish and Lita.
Unfortunately, I was dealing with concussions, and I had to do a live event. WWE wanted me to get back in the ring before Evolution. I was booked on the live events, and during a live event, I ended up getting re-concussed again. I remember being in the trainer’s room after, and they said, ‘you’re concussed again. That means no Evolution,’ which really sucked.
It was heartbreaking because they said, ‘take the impact test. There’s a chance you might get cleared right before Evolution. We’ll have you in the ring the day before to see how you’re feeling,’ and I ended up having really bad vertigo from the concussions. I couldn’t do anything, and I found out literally as I was flying to Evolution I wasn’t going to be cleared. It sucked, but it was a lot of fun being part of that moment and being able to watch it as a fan.
I would love to have the Evolution match that I didn’t get to have. I would love to tag team with Mickie James against Trish and Lita. I think that’s one of the matches that I wish I had. I don’t know if it’s really an option, but that’s always gonna be a match that I wish I had. If I could go back in time, I wish I could have that match.”
