One of the big matches scheduled for the “season premiere” of WWE Monday Night Raw is Sasha Banks vs. Alexa Bliss. The announcement of this match raised some eyebrows because of their history.
If you’ve been following WWE for a few years then you might know about the real-life heat that has existed between Bliss and Banks that dates back to their days in NXT. Click here if you want to brush up on some of the history between them.
Banks’ latest tweet seemingly put all of the negativity in the past. Here is what she said:
“This is a match I’ve been looking forward 2 my entire life. The fact that I’m wrestling 1/2 of the Tag Champs on the #RAW Season Premiere against @AlexaBliss_WWE in 2019 is mind boggling. Even 6days out from #HIAC & @BeckyLynchWWE I’ll empty the tank for one of the greatest ever.”
Fans were quick to point out that Banks’ tweet was full of sarcasm because she just copied and pasted what Seth Rollins said in a tweet about his upcoming match with Rey Mysterio.
Here is what Rollins wrote: “This is a match I’ve been looking forward to my entire life. The fact that I’m defending the Universal Title on the #RAW Season Premiere against @reymysterio in 2019 is mind boggling. Even 6 days out from #HIAC & @WWEBrayWyatt, I’ll empty the tank for one of the greatest ever.”
So it looks like the heat between Banks and Bliss is still there. In fact, in a backstage post-Raw promo on Monday night, Bliss sort of acknowledged what the fans were thinking when WWE announced the match for Raw.
