It's been a rough last month for Alexa Bliss inside the WWE ring.

Being pitched-up against Ronda Rousey at SummerSlam was never going to be easy, and she was comprehensively beaten for her Raw Women's Championship.

Fast forward a month to Hell in a Cell, and once again she tapped out to Rousey's arm-bar in her guaranteed rematch.

With Bliss now seemingly out of the title picture, she must now build towards her historic match with Trish Stratus at WWE Evolution next month.

But there's the slight chance that the bout may not go ahead - as WWE announced that Bliss suffered an injury on Sunday at Hell in a Cell.

Many fans thought the announcement may be just for storyline purposes, to sell the brutality of Rousey's offence, with Cathy Kelley saying that Bliss was complaining about numbness in her left arm.

But according to Mike Johnson from PW Insider, her injury is legitimate.

There's no specifics as to what she's actually done, although it wouldn't be a surprise if it came from one of Rousey's vicious arm-drags that look like they could do some damage to a rotator cuff.

Alexa Bliss and Braun Strowman enjoyed a fruitful partnership in the first Mixed Match Challenge, but she was removed from the first bout of series two.

It means that she was removed from last night's opening Mixed Match Challenge bout, which would have pitted her with her partner from the inaugural series - Braun Strowman - and replaced by Ember Moon.

But the current plan is for Bliss to step back in if she's cleared in the near future, and she's been pulled from this weekend's live events as a precaution.

If the injury is legit as Johnson has reported, then we hope Bliss recovers as soon as possible - she's probably had the most chances out of any woman on the Raw roster at holding the title, but she's still thoroughly entertaining.

Her partnership with Strowman in the Mixed Match Challenge was also well received, with the chemistry between the two garnering positive reactions.

And fans will be hoping she returns sooner rather than later to re-unite the little-and-large duo.
