Alexa Bliss has had a historically good year by anybody’s standards, starting 2017 as SmackDown Women’s Champion and ending it as Raw Women’s Champion. Even if she may have been overly charitable to herself when she took credit for the development of a Women’s Royal Rumble Match, it’s easy to see why Five Feet of Fury saw herself as the baddest woman on the Team Red roster.
That is, until Asuka came calling. The Empress of Tomorrow officially became the first female Raw Superstar to declare for the Women’s Royal Rumble Match, with a declaration within the declaration that she was going to win. Given her spotless record, it’s fair to take Asuka at her word when she says she’s going to win a match, but just to show she really meant business, The Empress of Tomorrow dropped a frozen Bliss with a lightning-fast kick to the head anyway.
