SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Alexa Bliss had a rough night at No Mercy that started with her finding out she wouldn’t be challenging for the SmackDown Women’s Title and ended with her on the losing side of a fierce battle against Naomi.

On No Mercy Kickoff, Bliss was informed by Commissioner Shane McMahon and General Manager Daniel Bryan that Becky Lynch was unable to defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship due to a medical condition. Obviously, Bliss was not pleased with this news, despite also learning that she will get an opportunity to challenge the Irish Lass Kicker for the title on Nov. 8 in Glasgow, Scotland, on SmackDown LIVE.

Bliss’ night would not end there, however. Despite not knowing who she would be competing against until Naomi interrupted her pre-match rant against Becky Lynch, the No. 1 contender had no problem controlling the contest in the early goings. Naomi proved to be resilient though, as she turned Bliss’ aggressiveness against her.

Bliss locked in a cross armbreaker on her foe, but Naomi shrewdly turned the maneuver around, pinning Bliss’ shoulders to the mat for the 1-2-3. The surprising loss left Bliss fuming in the middle of the ring.

With Bliss’ momentum coming to a halt thanks to her loss to Naomi, will she be able to bounce back in time for her SmackDown Women’s Championship Match against Becky on Nov. 8 in Glasgow on SmackDown LIVE?
