More on Alexa Bliss' Illness; News on Changes to Smackdown Women's Title Match


— On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, it was reported that Alexa Bliss is dealing with a significant sinus infection. Originally, the plan was to have a singles match at Extreme Rules between Bliss and Bayley but due to her ongoing issues with the sinus infection, WWE had to re-write the storyline in order to include Nikki Cross in a handicap match. The situation of WWE scrambling to come up with the idea would explain why it came across as not making sense since Cross is technically a babyface.

— At this point, Bliss is expected to be able to compete at Extreme Rules on Sunday, but with Cross there, she might be very limited.
