The current state of the WWE women's division over on Monday Night RAW has Alexa Bliss at the helm as she currently holds the RAW Women's Title, and she's currently locked up in a feud with longtime veteran and former WWE Women's Champion Mickie James.
Bliss and James actually were once allies on WWE TV, however, that ended after James turned on Bliss, the former SmackDown Live Women's Champion. "Little Miss Bliss" has downed the likes of Sasha Banks and Bayley on Monday Night RAW as challengers to her title, and has aligned herself with one of the most dominant women on the roster in Nia Jax to help her out on a weekly basis.
Now James will have to defend her title against James at the upcoming Tables Ladders and Chairs (TLC) pay-per-view (PPV) in two weeks time. Bliss and James have been feuding on RAW for the past few weeks cutting promos on one another and engaging in various physical confrontations.
One key angle in the entire storyline is Bliss making fun of James' age, calling her an old lady and going as far as offering her gifts that the elderly would find useful.
Bliss recently did an interview with Channel Guide Magazine to discuss her rivalry with James and revealed a hilarious segment she pitched in which she would offer James a LifeAlert (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"We did a segment where I gave Mickie James some Depend products and a walker. My original pitch was to give her a Life Alert. It didn't happen, but Nia ended up using a line about it in their match.
"That's teamwork right there…WWE creative is amazing. When we have ideas, they always take them into consideration. Whether they use the ideas, I don't know. I'm not going to lie.
"My ideas are usually not that great. So, creative takes an idea and makes it that much better. They are amazing to work with and so open to our ideas.
"Mickie is so amazing because she has so many ideas. She is a wealth of knowledge since she has been in the business for so long. She is super sweet and open to ideas.
"I'm looking forward to continuing our program. She always says, 'Well, I'm six one way and half dozen the other.' We always go that she makes scrambled eggs.
"That's not a thing she taught us. If it doesn't work out today, it will tomorrow. Six one way and half dozen the other. It happens. Things can work out tomorrow.
"She is very casual that way, which keeps it a stress-free environment. That is so nice to have."
