Alexa Bliss fended off four Superstars to retain her Raw Women’s Title at WWE No Mercy, so it was surprising that her Raw Talk interview seemed to focus more on a Superstar who wasn’t in the match: Mickie James. So, the six-time Women’s Champion had plenty on her mind when she interrupted Alexa’s extended scolding of the WWE Universe for focusing their attention what's in the future (Asuka, for instance) instead of her, their present champion.
Little Miss Bliss wasn’t about to give James the respect she demanded, instead tossing out a volley of thinly-veiled barbs about James’ veteran status. Which was all good as far as Mickie was concerned; she just wanted Alexa to repeat her Raw Talk insults to her face. When she did, Mickie responded with two slaps to the face and a kick that sent the “Goddess” tumbling out of the ring — and, maybe, off her pedestal.
