Alexa Bliss has some unfinished business with Sasha Banks, and that business will be settled at SummerSlam when the two fierce competitors once again go head-to-head for Little Miss Bliss’ Raw Women’s Championship.
Heading into their Raw Women’s Title clash at the first-ever WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view, there was already no love lost between Alexa and Sasha. Banks had her sights set on her fourth Raw Women’s Championship, and she was not shy about expressing her opinion that Bliss was nothing more than talk and politicking. For her part, Bliss felt that her own record spoke volumes, having thrived inside an ultra-competitive Women’s division to become the only Superstar to hold both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Titles, a distinction she still carries.
The Boss’ hatred only intensified after her devious opponent opted to take a count-out loss at the July 9 pay-per-view, taking the easy way out to remain champion. When The “Goddess” of WWE started a post-match celebration on the ramp, though, Banks turned her displeasure into action by igniting a wild brawl that culminated in her hitting a double knee on Bliss off the announce table.
In the weeks that followed, it seemed as if Banks was going to have to wait for another opportunity against the reigning titleholder after Bayley defeated The Boss in a hard-fought bout on Raw to determine who would battle Alexa at The Biggest Event of the Summer. However, when Bayley suffered a separated right shoulder, The Boss battled her way back into the spotlight, first winning a Triple Threat Qualifying Match against Emma and Alicia Fox, then overcoming Nia Jax to earn the right to challenge Alexa at SummerSlam.Don’t miss the explosive Raw Championship rematch when Sasha looks to take home her fourth Raw Women’s Title from Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam, streaming live on WWE Network on Sunday, Aug. 20, with a special start time of 7 ET/4 PT.
