Miss Bliss Calls Angle a “Sexist”
It was quite the week for women’s wrestling on Monday Night RAW with the ladies of the red brand occupying an all-time high number of segments on the show. We saw three women’s matches including Asuka and Nia Jax in singles action, plus multiple backstage and in-ring talking segments.
During one of those segments, RAW General Manager Kurt Angle announced all five women who will face Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women’s Championship at the upcoming Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. This brought out the “Goddess” who complained that Brock Lesnar does not have to defend his title on February 25th, accusing Angle and WWE management of treating her and the women’s roster unfairly.
You can watch the segment between Bliss and Angle above. Interestingly enough, they actually cut out the line where the champion called the WWE Hall of Famer a “sexist”.
Nia Jax’s WWE Raw Opponent
Nia Jax won a relatively quick squash match on this week’s episode of WWE RAW as she gets ready to face the undefeated “Empress” Asuka at this month’s WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. If she manages to get past the former NXT Women’s Champion on February 25th, she will earn a spot in the RAW Women’s Championship match at WrestleMania 34, no matter who her other opponents are.
The young lady who lost to Nia this week was introduced as “Vanessa Floyd” prior to the match, but we’ve identified her as midwest wrestler Savanna Stone. Stone is a former Zero1 USA Women’s Champion, trained by Michael Elgin, and has worked for promotions like Glory Pro in St. Louis and Freelance Wrestling in Chicago.
Asuka’s Body Count Rises
Nia Jax wasn’t the only women on the RAW roster in action this week. In fact, there were quite a few more women’s segments on the latest show than usual. After picking up a definitive victory over “The Boss” Sasha Banks last week, Asuka continued her undefeated streak by knocking off another of the self-proclaimed Four Horsewomen: Bayley.
