Alexa Bliss to Challenge Becky Lynch for the Womens Championship at No Mercy (September, 14th 2016)
As Found out on this Past Tuesdays Post Backlash Episode of Smackdown (Report coming soon) the Small but Fierce Alexa Bliss is the Official Number One Contender to Becky Lynch’s newly won Smackdown Womens Championship. Bliss, who had competed previously at Backlash to try and obtain the title, pinned Nikki Bella in a Five Way Match also featuring Carmella, Natalya and Naomi to cement her contendership status with the Lasskicker looking on from the commentary table.
Of course, considering their series of bouts post draft, this wont be the first time Bliss and the Irish Women’s Champion have locked up in the Squared Circle, and considering the history building between other competitors then competing for the contendership, Bliss’s win is both sneaky and surprising. The Fierce, as well as petite, competitor has since spouted that she was overlooked in NXT during the rise of the Four Horsewomen on the latest episode of Talking Smack, and she thus looks forward to proving that she wont be overlooked again, and that she wont be mocked for her size either. Regardless Lynch will have to soak away the happiness of her title win and focus on the Stakes as WWE No Mercy returns on October 9th.
