    They’ve completely invalidated Sasha Banks as a champion. I’m not going to say any more about it than that.

    Going on the fact that they highlighted her penchant for never successfully defending her title in Alexa’s promo at the start of the show, I would guess they are going to use that to move forward with Banks. Maybe to the point that it instigates a heel turn.
    Not sure I like the idea of Bliss vs Jax as heel vs heel rarely every works in a match.
    Bliss has a good fan base and Jax does not, so you run the risk of Bliss looking like a face.

    i think Bayley going down with a injury kinda screwed the main plans for Sasha tuning heel up. i bet the original plan was for Bayley to end Alexa’s reign at SummerSlam, then they build up tension between Bayley and a jealous Sasha Banks, then Bayley loses title at No Mercy when Sasha turns on her but instead, we found a perfect way for a heel turn now for Sasha. and not to mention, Sasha as long as she’s a face is gonna end up getting a treatment where she’s better at chasing and winning then she is at retaining the belt. the reign she will have where she will see her first successful title defensive will be reserved for a heel run. in other words, Sasha will need to turn heel in order to finally get over that “chokes in first defense of title reign” hump.
