Alexa Bliss was originally scheduled to take place on tonight’s episode of RAW but it will no longer be taking place.
PWInsider reports that Bliss vs. Natalya was removed from tonight’s scheduled broadcast because of the passing of Natalya’s father, Jim Neidhart. WWE also removed mentions of Natalya in the preview for tonight’s show, as seen below.
“Despite her interference in last week’s main event, Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss watched in horror as Ronda Rousey — competing for the very first time on Raw — made Alicia Fox tap ferociously to her excruciating Armbar, sending a painful message to The Goddess before their title match at SummerSlam.
Afterward, Bliss told WWE.com that she’s not afraid of Rousey, reiterating that when The Baddest Woman on the Planet gets in the ring with her at SummerSlam, the world will see her as “nothing but an overhyped rookie.” Will Little Miss Bliss come to regret those words?”
