Mickie James & Bayley def. Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss & Emma
This Sunday, Alexa Bliss will defend her Raw Women’s Title against Mickie James, while Emma holds the prestigious if unenviable task of facing Asuka in her Team Red debut. If what happened on Raw is any indication, both women have a long week of soul-searching ahead of them, as they fell to the team of Bayley & James in a fast-paced tag team contest.
Not only did Mickie look every bit ready to claim her seventh Women’s Championship, Bayley didn’t look far away from title contention herself, holding off Emma and Bliss singlehandedly before tagging James into the fray. A devastating Mick Kick to Alexa minutes later both spelled the end of the contest and sent the champ and her teammate back to the drawing board with only six days to figure it out.
