Following her shocking return and reveal as La Luchadora on SmackDown LIVE last week, Mickie James granted an in-ring interview to Renee Young to explain that she was back to prove that the Women’s Revolution actually started with her and that all the current revolutionaries were trying to rewrite history and erase all of her sacrifices and accomplishments.
Mickie went on to explain that the only current Superstar who had the proper appreciation for her legacy is SmackDown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss and that’s why she was more than happy to join her against Becky Lynch.
The inciting of Lynch’s name prompted The Irish Lass Kicker to emerge and make a beeline for James in the ring. Lynch got her shots in on James, but then, as Becky began to chase her, Bliss blindsided Lynch. The SmackDown Women’s Champion proceeded to join James in executing a two-on-one assault on Lynch for the second straight week.
