With Mickie James circling Alexa Bliss, it appears the Raw Women’s Champion and Nia Jax’s on-again-off-again partnership is on, again. Though, if what happened during Jax’s bout with Mickie (a match seemingly finagled by Alexa after a backstage prank put James in the path of Little Miss Bliss’ occasional enforcer) is any indication, even that might not be enough to hold James back in the long run.
Not only did Mickie refuse to give in despite a powerful display from Jax, the six-time Women’s Champion James pulled off a miracle reversal to hit a tornado DDT off the ropes. The move seemed like such a surefire match-ender that Bliss broke up the ensuing pinfall attempt, handing James a disqualification victory. A post-match Mick Kick to Little Miss Bliss left Alexa humiliated for the second straight week, but her combined effort against both Superstars was enough to land Mickie what she was looking for since the beginning: A Raw Women's Title Match at WWE TLC.
