Given the build which was made towards Braun Strowman Vs The Fiend at ‘the biggest show of the summer’, many were expecting Alexa Bliss to be involved in the contest in some form.
This never materialised, and the only interference came after the match from a returning Roman Reigns.
According to Steve Carrier of Ringside News, it would seem that Bliss was scheduled to be in the match and a change to the plans was only made very late on.
You can imagine Bliss wouldn’t be pleased at being removed from a show of the stature so late in the day. However, it could also be the case that plans have moved forwards a week now Strowman Vs Fiend Vs Reigns has been announced for Payback.
She has posted a couple of times on Twitter since SummerSlam, including a confused emoji regarding the question of her not being on the show, and most recently the following motivational words.
