Earlier this week, we broke the news about Alexa Bliss suffering a concussion on Saturday night during a match with Ronda Rousey.
Bliss was not cleared to compete on Monday Night Raw and she was not allowed to do anything physical on the show so they had Alicia Fox take her spot in a backstage attack on Trish Stratus and Lita. There was some hope that she would be cleared in time for Sunday’s Evolution pay-per-view but the decision was made today to replace her in the match.
WWE has announced that it will be Mickie James and Alicia Fox taking on Trish Straus and Lita on Sunday night. Bliss will be in James’ and Fox’s corner.
As is usually the case with head-related injuries, WWE did not explain why Bliss was taken out of the match.
Here is the updated card for Evolution:
Raw Women’s Championship
Ronda Rousey (Champion) vs. Nikki Bella
