Alexa Bliss vs. Nikki Cross set for WWE Raw


Former tag team partners will face off on tonight's episode of Raw.

WWE has announced that Alexa Bliss vs. Nikki Cross will take place on tonight's post-Survivor Series edition of Raw. On Raw two weeks ago, Cross gave Bliss an ultimatum by telling Bliss she had to choose between her or Bray Wyatt. Bliss chose Wyatt.

Cross did an interview on Raw last Monday and said she's not going to give up on Bliss. Later in the show,  Cross pleaded with Bliss and told Bliss that Wyatt is bad for her. Bliss slapped Cross and they brawled until being separated by officials. Bliss then helped Wyatt defeat The Miz by taking out John Morrison when he interfered. wrote about tonight's match:

After failing to pry Alexa Bliss away from Bray Wyatt, Nikki Cross might not be able to salvage her friendship with WWE’s Wicked Witch, as they are scheduled to meet one on one tonight.

Cross has blamed herself for Bliss aligning with The Fiend and her ex-best friend’s ensuing descent into madness. The strange union originated this past summer after Cross refused Bliss’ consolation following a loss, leaving her all alone for her first confrontation with The Fiend. Wyatt has seemingly captured Bliss’ mind and soul ever since.

With her most recent plea for Bliss to leave Wyatt resulting in a thunderous slap last week on Raw, the former teammates pummeled each other until they were separated by officials.

Can Cross use force instead of reason to finally persuade Bliss? Or will the new, more sinister version of Five Feet of Fury prove indomitable?

This is the first match that's been announced for tonight's Raw. The episode will also feature Raw's fallout from Survivor Series.
