After SummerSlam, the WWE was building towards a matchup between Hall of Famer Trish Stratus and the Goddess Alexa Bliss. At the same time, Lita was slated to take on Mickie James, who had aligned herself alongside Bliss.
However, at some point, these two matches were combined into a tag team match, pitting the legends against Bliss and James. Sadly, the company has changed the match again.
The WWE officially revealed today that Alexa Bliss would have to miss out on the bout, and Alicia Fox would take her place.
The past and present collide at WWE Evolution as WWE Hall of Famers Trish Stratus & Lita join forces to battle Mickie James & Alicia Fox at the groundbreaking pay-per-view event.
Although James was originally slated to team with Alexa Bliss, The Goddess will be replaced by the wily Fox in this blockbuster matchup, and will instead be in Mickie & Alicia’s corner.
This is not the first time this in-ring confrontation has transformed in the lead-up to WWE’s first all-women’s pay-per-view event. The show was initially slated to feature a clash between Alexa and Trish and a separate singles match pitting Lita against Mickie. As Alexa’s trash-talk escalated, however, Trish and Lita both threw hands with the former Women’s Champions, precipitating the combination of the scheduled bouts.
Now, WWE Evolution is set for a cross-generational confrontation that’s sure to feature some country strong, a dash of Foxy unpredictability, a few turns into the extreme and, of course, a healthy dose of Stratusfaction.
WWE Evolution takes place this Sunday, October 28th.
