Alexa Bliss has opened up on her real-life heat with Sasha Banks.
Unless you have been living under a rock, then you should know that WWE had to make a change to their plans at SummerSlam. WWE had to book two triple threat matches on last week’s episode of Raw.
The reason for these qualifying matches was due to Bayley suffering a shoulder injury that has forced her out of her Raw Women’s Championship match with Bliss at the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view event.
Nia Jax defeated Mickie James and Dana Brooke while Sasha Banks defeated Alicia Fox and Emma. This led to Jax and Banks wrestling each other on this week’s episode of Raw in Boston, MA at the TD Garden to determine who will wrestle Bliss at SummerSlam.
As seen on the show, Banks ended up beating Jax in a singles match and will now face Bliss at SummerSlam. Bliss recently appeared on ESPN's Cheap Heat podcast to talk about various topics. During the interview, she claimed that she has real-life heat with Banks. Here is what she had to say (transcript courtesy of NoDQ.com):
“I’ve always been the person to say ‘business is business, personal is personal.’ I will never let my personal feelingsabout somebody get in the way of business. I want to have a productive match, I want to have a safe match, I want to have a great match; I want to take this company to the next level with our women with this WWE women’s revolution. I’ve seen the things she said about me. If that’s how she feels, that’s fine. But we know that we put it to the side and have a productive, professional match because that’s what it’s all about.”
SummerSlam takes place on August 20th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured on the card.
Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe in a Universal Championship Fatal 4-Way Match will headline this event. Other top matches taking place at the event include Jinder Mahal vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Title, AJ Styles © vs. Kevin Owens for the United States Title with Shane McMahon being the special guest referee, and John Cena vs. Baron Corbin.
