Sasha Banks, Mickie James & Dana Brooke def. Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax & Emma
True, Alexa Bliss did manage to hang on to her Raw Women’s Title on a technicality last week. But she put herself in the unenviable position of having nearly every woman in the Team Red ladies’ locker room — including a returning Emma — gunning for her prize.
A confrontation between Bliss and the assembled women of Raw — minus Bayley, who still hasn’t competed since losing her title rematch — led to a Six-Woman Tag among champion and would-be contenders, during which all Bliss’ opponents — Sasha Banks in particular — wanted a piece of her. When Sasha had Emma on the ropes, Alexa did the only thing she could do: Ditched the match before she could be tagged in, leaving Emma to suffer a match-ending Bank Statement after Mickie James took out Nia Jax.
Of course, Six-Woman Tags don’t decide titles, and Alexa’s championship reign isn’t in danger of ending anytime soon. But in terms of shoring up allies for the fight to come, it’s hard not to think she might look back on this as a missed opportunit
