Bliss vs. Jax

Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss def. Nia Jax (Extreme Rules Match)

PITTSBURGH — Nia Jax across the ring with Natalya in her corner. Ronda Rousey in the audience. No rule or restriction that prevented any of them from getting involved. And yet, Alexa Bliss still retained her Raw Women’s Title after a wild Extreme Rules Match title defense that narrowly saw her escape a frantic scramble involving multiple Superstars at ringside.

In fact, before the chaotic turn of events that ended the match, Bliss’ title bout was headed for a rout at the hands of The Irresistible Force, as Jax calmly ripped each implement Alexa attempted to use away from her and turned them against the champion. The bout turned on a savvy bit of planning by Bliss, who olé’d Nia into a steel chair propped up in the turnbuckles, which set off a brawl at ringside that drew Rousey out of the audience when Bliss and her lieutenant Mickie James neutralized Natalya.

Rousey, who circumvented her 30-day Raw suspension by buying a ticket to WWE Extreme Rules, unleashed the full scope of her aggression on James, though the six-time Women’s Champion recovered in time to save Bliss from Rowdy Ronda’s wrath. With Rousey and Natalya both taken out, Bliss and James turned their attention to Jax, whom they brought to her knees with steel chairs. Bliss sealed the match with a wicked DDT onto the chair and narrowly evaded the recovered Rousey, capping a title defense that seemed all but certain to end in disaster. If the look on Rousey’s face was any indication, the champion can’t dodge her forever. But if the evening as a whole was any indication, there are few no-win situations Alexa Bliss can’t overcome.
