Alexa Bliss vs. Becky Lynch in a Steel Cage match for the Women’s Title announced for next week

WWE

Tonight on SmackDown, acting SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan announced a big Women’s Championship match for next week’s episode of SmackDown Live!

During a backstage segment, Becky Lynch and Daniel Bryan were looking over last week’s match between Becky and the mysterious “La Luchadora”. Becky noted that despite Alexa Bliss competing under the “La Luchadora” mask, she was able to force the Women’s Champion to tap out and therefore, should have another shot at the gold.

Alexa countered Becky’s request by stating she went uncover as a faux Luchadora in an attempt to the identity of the real one but failed to do so thanks to Becky’s interference.

Daniel sided with Lass Kicker and granted her a rematch for Alexa’s Women’s title next week, adding a cage stipulation to ensure there would be no outside interferences.

This match will air next Tuesday, January 17th at 8 pm ET on the USA Network.

Are you excited for this match? Who do you think will win? Let us know in the comments below!

    Iconic.

    A bit surprised it won’t happen at the RR though. Does that mean we won’t get a championship defense on the PPV? Unless Becky regains the title… Interesting.

    • Femme Fatale Venus Fly

      I’m very positive this will be the finale of this feud. And I can see La Luchadora’s identity being revealed maybe after the match or the week after next week.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      La Luchadora would probably still find a way to get involved.

  • MK126

    A STIPULATION MATCH THAT MAKES SENSE! This is a great idea and can definitely prove to be (assumed to be the main event for obvious reason) a much better match than their tables match. Imagine a twisted bliss off the top of the cage?!

    • Maddox

      Lol, Not likely. Alexa Bliss’s character will find ways to escape with the win and not risk losing the title doing daredevil moves, that’s Sasha Banks thing

      • MK126

        But Bliss is also cocky that she can beat Becky cause shes done it before (like she said during that promo). Id like to see her doin daredevil moves just to see if she can pull them off. I couldnt see sasha jumping off the top of a cage but i could definitely see Charlotte

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          Sasha would jump off the top of the cage with her diving double knees.

  • GameChanger #HBIC#GoldenGodess

    Happy and Proud!! Congrats Girls!

  • HEELHornet

    If they had any sense they’d do it at the Royal Rumble. But they don’t its to copy what TNA did a few weeks ago with Rosemary and Jade. (Which at the current tapings, has since been topped)

    • Maddox

      Lol, Am certain It’s not to copy TNA, it’s logically the direction to go. Raw has two women’s match at the Royal Rumble so I don’t see any reason not to do this to boost ratings since the Rumble kinda sells itself

  • SamoanSquad

    I’m 50/50 on this on one hand I’m excited for this but then I see Alexa Bliss is in this and no shot at her but I’m just a little worried for her TBH.I still think she’s a little green I feel like they throwing her in all these big matches too soon she needs more time before even throwing her in a match like this.

    If this was Becky and Natalya then I’m all in for that but Alexa is a wildcard for me she needs more time.But I’m hoping she pulls it off.

    • Maddox

      Too soon? She has been running away from Becky so logically she can’t escape anymore and besides, Steel Cage matches aren’t that dangerous unless you are fighting on top of the cage

      • SamoanSquad

        I’m not talking about the story because it does makes sense to do it.Im just talking about Alexa in general and I feel like their pushing her too soon and throwing her in all these big matches.But like I said I’m hoping she pulls thru because I do like her.

    • Robert Guerra

      She’s the Champ, there’s no excuses to her, people will demand this big things from her, she have to step it up.

      • Welchy

        Oop and she will. Queen

  • yoshijoshy

    Did not see this coming but it all makes total sense, LOVE!

  • Luiz Giem

    I didn’t see this match coming at all, I knew that sooner or later Becky was going to get another title match but I thought it was going to be at the Royal Rumble not the next week and I never imagined that it was going to be a STEEL CAGE MATCH!!

    Will Alexa retain clean? Will La Luchadora reveal herself?… I’m so excited for this!! I hope they let the girls main event Smackdown this time!!

  • Robert Guerra
  • Jouey

    Where is Eva??? ???

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      Don’t worry the queen will be back soon to slay the world!

    • Mark

      Hopefully negotiating her contract release

      • Number One

        No, Summer Rae should do that

        • Mark

          Yeah, let’s get rid of one the best talkers and most natural heels in the women’s division and keep Eva Marie around who offers nothing but her Ronald McDonald hair. Good idea.

          • glassjaw

            Eva Marie is a twisted paradox as far as fan opinion goes. Most praise she gets is for having a non-wrestling gimmick to match the fact that, presently, she doesn’t wrestle well at all IF at all.

          • Number One

            Eva wrestles circles around Summer Rae. Summer’s been in WWE for four years and hasn’t improved a bit.

          • Mark

            LOL. GIRL BAH.

    • Number One

      She’ll be back, be patient!

    • #Hooligan

      Doing other things, as she should be.

    • Eva Marie McGee

      I’m here.

  • Huntrry94

    I’m so excited and ecstatic about this match!!! I know both of them are going to tear the roof off!! I love Becky so much BUT I am fully into the Wicked Witch of the WWE in my girl Alexa Bliss!! I am not ready for her to loose her title I want a lengthy reign with her on top for a while!! ??? but congrats and so proud girls!!!!!

  • Charlie Flickinger

    Hmmm. I would have preferred this at the royal rumble. So I think a tag team match at the rumble. Alexa, Nattie & Carmella v Becky, Nikki & Naomi. Naomi is attacked before the match by LaLuchadora and replaced by Mickie James. Becky wins the match and in the post match celebration Mickie attacks, revealing herself at LaLuchadora.

    • Robert Guerra

      Naaah.

    • Super Mateo

      I’m glad it’s not at the Rumble. At the Rumble, this match would have to fight for its place on the card and wouldn’t get the attention it deserves due to a giant Rumble match and various matchups between old guys that should be retired. On SD, it can (and should) be the headliner. At RR, it’ll be viewed as a midcard match.

      • Exactly. Everyone is pretty much waiting for the Rumble match at that PPV. Everything else usually seems a filler.

  • Golden Goddess

    Mickie is gonna reveal herself next week!! Hopefully at RR it’ll be Nikki vs Nattie, Becky vs Mickie vs Alexa

    • Raekon

      They should had kept Deonna in the role that is already playing the la luchadora instead of switching her with Mickie.
      Most of all since Mickie should be joining as a Face instead of a Heel in my opinion. :/

      • sleeper11

        Deonna is not even signed, she worked TNA tapings this past week.

    • Jesus’s brother

      Just becky, mickie alexa! There isnt enough time for secondary feuds due to the rumble match

  • conan_kun

    Women title matches with stipulations in the last few months

    Charlotte vs Sasha
    – Hell in a Cell
    – Fall Count Anywhere
    – Iron Man match

    Becky vs Alexa
    – Table match
    – Steel Cage match

    • Jouey

      Nikki vs Carmelaa
      – No DQ match

    • Number One

      I know this wasn’t a title match, but Nikki vs Carmella in a No DQ match is another great one

    • jcott3

      I remember back in November, when this site had the Lita-Victoria cage match from 2003 on TDIH, I said the only thing wrong with it was there was no build-up – it was just thrown in as part of Raw Roulette. Someone responded that part of the problem today is WWE is trying too hard to make history happen for the women. The more I think about it, the more I’m starting to think they may be right.

    • John Finnie

      & a few Main event’s

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    That moment you realize Trish and Lita never had a cage match so now their clones having one for them…. But in all seriousness I’m very happy about this. Smackdown slays Raw again. It’s like Raw tries too hard where as Smackdown doesn’t have to try they know what the people want.

    • BlaamLaambb

      SHADE! lol

    • Vito

      LMFAO CLONES!! but lita did have a cage match!!

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        Referring to Lita and Trish having a cage match between them.

    • Raekon

      Lita had one with Victoria. :)
      It was the first ever steel cage match for the women in the wwe.

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        I’m referring to a cage match between Trish and Lita.

      • jcott3

        The problem with Lita-Victoria was there was no build-up to it – it was part of Raw Roulette as a “Let’s jerk Lita’s chain some more” moment, as WWE was going for another “Lita & Matt Hardy split” angle at the time.

        • Raekon

          Sure but it was still the first steel cage match for the women in the wwe ever and that’s why I posted it. ^_^

    • Eva Marie McGee
    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      SCREAM AT CLONES. Keep it. AJ and Kaitlyn were the only ones who came close to Trish and Lita.

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        They was close had the chemistry and build of Trish and Lita. But Alexa and Becky are carbon copies. They look and act like them. I swear it feels like I’m back in 2004 and Trish is still torturing Lita.

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          Oh. Then I see where you’re coming from. ?

        • Angelica Marie MoNae

          I was literally thinking this when I was watching their segment like “Trish and Lita 2.0” lol. They look like them, act like them, getting awesome build like them, Becky’s entrance is even similar to Lita’s.

        • Joseph

          Except that they wrestle different from Lita and Trish.

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            That’s true

      • wwepassion

        Lol no

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          Did I ask you? No.

          • wwepassion

            And?

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        How because they had one feud they compared to Trish and Lita’s rivalry? I disagree. If anything the Sasha and Charlotte rivalry was the closest thing to a Trish and Lita rivalry and I hated the Sasha vs Charlotte feud, at least towards the end of it.

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          Nah. Everything they did together was perfect. From the friendship to the rivalries, to the teams… It was just good, the chemistry was there. Sasha and Charlotte had good matches but there wasn’t any interactions that made viewers actually think they hate each other until the end of course.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            But they only had one rivalry and it was kind of short tbh.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            True. But it was still good. I do see the connection from Becky and Alexa though. Maybe if the feud continues again sometime next year with the roles reversed they’ll actually be considered this generation’s Trish and Lita. But I don’t like comparing them to old people anyways, they’re the future.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            Agreed!

    • Geek God

      Sasha and Charlotte comes off more as Trish abs Lita to me

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        I see Melina and Michelle McCool when I see them. They are what WWE would’ve done with them if the division back then was taken more serious.

  • Divo’s Champion

    Awesome! I can usually predict the winner of a match. However, I think this will be 50/50 for both ladies.

  • 3???????

    So it’s pretty obvious Alexa will retain, my only thing is, who will be the next challenger? Naomi who has no build or hype? Carmella? Eva?

    • They’ll probably find some way to stretch Alexa vs Becky until Nikki’s implants inevitably bury Natalya in a lackluster brushoff match.

    • Eva Marie McGee

      They’re hyping Carmella as well tho. It’s possible that one of these days she’ll be inserted. I just hope that she won’t win with the help of James if that happens.~

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        It’ll be good if she wins with the help of James though. She could use him to win the title but when she wins the title she turns on him. That’ll be iconic.

        • Eva Marie McGee

          Yup. That’ll be a memorable storyline for 2017.

  • wwepassion

    I think it’s mickie under the mask which will lead to possibly a triple threat at wrestle mania. If it was really Eva wwe wouldn’t have mentioned her as a possible guess.

    • Vito

      it is supposed to be mickie which is gonna lead to mickie vs lynch at mania

      • wwepassion

        That makes no sense to me because she’s not even the champ.

        • Vito

          i guess its their way of keeping becky occupied/ on tv bc she’s great in the ring/ 4H

          • wwepassion

            I don’t think she’s great, she’s good but extremely boring. I hope she goes heel because I can’t stand her as face.

    • SweeneyTodd

      Wrong. 4 Way with Nikki

      • wwepassion

        Wrong

  • conan_kun

    Will Becky vs Alexa next week ends like that too, the challenger loses via masked person interference and the masked person’s true identify revealed.

  • Mark

    I hope they deliver but their chemistry is non-existent and their matches so far have proved that. No botches or iffy moments between them but no spark or excitement either. Just basic matches with boring spots. It’s time for them to GO IN! SLAY!

    The encounter between Nattie and Nikki had such a basic set-up. Another attack, really? Cause we didn’t see enough of that with Carmella and Nikki. But for some reason I really loved it this time. And I liked how Nattie (the heel) left with the upper hand. Nattie is such a jobber and they really need to continue to build her up and make her a hue threat. I’d love to see her eventually get a clean victory over Nikki after a brutal spot. Maybe after a devastating spinning clothesline where Nikki gets folded over and knocked out in a nasty way!

    • Delroy Coke

      Natalya is NOT a jobber period

      • Mark

        Mhm…

    • Joseph

      Don’t know what matches you been watching but there matches have been fine.

      • Mark

        Sure for people with low standards x

        • Joseph

          They did fine, the table match was alright but its kind of hard to make a tables match epic.

          • They couldn’t even outdo the TLC 2010 match despite having no handcuffs on them like Nattie, Beth and LayCool did.

          • Welchy

            Since when you become a hater? & this bitter? Lol

          • Joseph

            They did fine its not Alexa and Becky’s fault that the crowd was mostly dead during the PPV.

    • Vito

      their last match was amazing, but i agree they need to step the chemistry up

    • SweeneyTodd

      Alexa sucks in the ring. No surprise

      • Welchy

        You hating. No surprise.

      • Mark

        She’s actually super athletic and skilled. She just lacks with ring psychology like so many women of today. Wish we still had girls like Beth, Victoria and McCool around. They could really guide Alexa and oh man would those 3 would have incredible matches with her.

    • glassjaw

      I thought my talons needed sharpened for Nikki’s continuation with Nattie after their in-ring segment but… I thought the brawl was pretty good. Nattie seems more invested and I do enjoy aggressive Nikki ?

      • Rocky1990

        I agree 100%. Those punches looked great!

    • wwepassion

      They aren’t gonna let Nat beat Nikki, they are giving Nikki these feuds until she gets back in the title picture.

      • Angelica Marie MoNae

        I’m usually rooting for Nikki but I actually hope nattie comes out on top in this one. Nattie really needs it if her heel turn is going to mean anything. Nikki has proven she doesn’t need to be in the title picture to keep people invested in her so I wouldn’t mind her being in side feuds until maybe after nattie wins the title and they reignite this feud for Nikki to come out on top. But I also wouldn’t mind if they put Nikki in the title picture after Alexa is finished with Becky. Personally though I would be most happy if Naomi is Alexa’s next challenger and wins her first title, then nattie takes it from Naomi, then reignite Nikki and nattie.

        • wwepassion

          I am being realistic though, they aren’t gonna put the title on Nat nor let her beat Nikki. It’s time Nikki gets back in the title picture, she is the most over woman and really has the crowd behind her. Nat is great as heel and I wouldn’t”t mind a reign from her but wwe aren’t gonna give it to her.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            I agree the chances are slim for nattie to win the title but smackdown has already thrown quite a few surprises since the draft. For instance no one thought Alexa would be women’s champion and was just a temp feud for becky.

          • Angelica Marie MoNae

            The chances being slim is actually why I want nattie to come out on top tbh. They brag about being the land of opportunity and so far they have been.

          • wwepassion

            Yea but I don’t want her to go over Nikki when wwe aren’t even going to put the title on her. Nikki has taken many loses putting others over so I don’t want her to lose momentum. I don’t know, one title for the women is hard but we have to deal with it.

      • Mark

        Agree but it would be nice for Nattie to get a clean victory in this feud. And then give the blowout match victory to Nikki.

        • wwepassion

          I would like to see Nat have a reign as heel but knowing wwe they aren’t going to.

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      I think the way they looked in the ring is what made their segment something special. They literally looked like they were fighting and trying to tear each other apart. By far the best catfight since naomi and Cameron.

  • Mark

    Not a fan of the joke Naomi has become with her awful glow in the dark dancing gimmick, but why do I feel like the WWE is keeping her off TV as punishment for her Twitter rants after the Total Divas promo poster? ?

    • She wasn’t even used before that and she’s not only off TV, but live events as well. She was injured but she’s been cleared and now she’s waiting.

      • Joseph

        Exactly gotta wait till they finish this feud.

      • Number One

        Mania’s in Orlando; definitely see Naomi getting the belt at that grand stage

        • Let’s hope. This should be her moment.

          • Jesus’s brother

            Lol why would WWE give such huge moment to a c-level superstar? If neither sasha nor charlotte won in their hometown why would naomi?

          • See Zack Ryder. She’s been overlooked for years and WM would be a perfect closure to that chapter.

          • Jesus’s brother

            no, the problem is that they won’t let her win at her hometown and she is not big enough to win at Wrestlemania! True that Zack has been overlooked but he is a much bigger star than Naomi!

          • He really isn’t. If he can do it, so can Naomi. No one said she WILL win but that they HOPE she does. And we will see once WM comes around.

          • Jesus’s brother

            Dafuck??? Where in the bloody hell is naomi a bigger star than zack ryder?!

          • Do you even watch the product? Are you serious?

          • Jesus’s brother

            Oh good, a Naomi mark! Zack has been in much bigger moments than Naomi! What has Naomi done to be “a bigger” star than Ryder? Hmm

          • This further proves that you didn’t watch anything before the horsewomen made their debut. Ryder hasn’t been relevant since 2012. 4 years later he managed to win the title at WM. And if he can do it, so can Naomi, if they let her. Naomi has been on TD, bigger storylines and actually won matches to be the bigger star then him. But like I said, what would you know since you started watching 2 years ago.

          • Jesus’s brother

            i started to give a fuck to women’s wrestling since the four horsewwomen took center stage lol you’re a big mark for women’s wrestling so u cant see anythng else besides the women so of course, to you, naomi is a bigger star than ryder.

            i respect your opinion by i dont share it

          • Except I told you Ryder hasn’t been relevant in 5 years and you’re still acting like he is, when Naomi won more matches in her last two years than he has in 5. Keep up with the product and maybe you’ll know.

          • Jesus’s brother

            where has those victories lead her? she’s been as irrelevant as him…at least he has won championships! lmfao

          • Yet she gets pops all the time? Like I said. He’s irrelevant and won at WM, so might Naomi. And I really hope she does.

          • Jesus’s brother

            No” Nikki, Mickie, Eva or Becky are the four top contenders to win the championship. They all are bigger starts than Naomi!

          • Once again, I said I HOPE she wins. Didn’t say she will, nor that she’s a top contender. But I hope she does and she deserves it 10000%

          • Jesus’s brother

            Maybe someday but not at mania

          • wwepassion

            Championships don’t make you a star CLEARLY

          • Jesus’s brother

            HHH, Ric Flair, John Cena and Randy Orton disagree!

          • wwepassion

            We are talking about the women and Zack lol and those men were pushed PROPERLY with and without titles so you aren’t making any points.

          • Jesus’s brother

            They were pushed to win championships which made them stars… most of their careers they held championships, so yes, championships makes them stars! i don’t know if you remember hhh in his early career but he was seen has a joke!

            Men and women, it’s wrestling anyway! U asked for equality

          • wwepassion

            They were stars before the titles. Titles don’t make you a star lol. Makes no sense please stop.

          • Jesus’s brother

            Dafuck? Tell me three superstars that are stars without winning a title!!

          • Robann

            C-Level? LMFAOO keep dreaming. And like Boris said, Zack Ryder is the perfect example.

          • Jesus’s brother

            Ok then read my response to him!

        • Luke

          lol no

        • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

          Sasha, Charlotte, TJ, Noam, and Natalya lost in their hometowns, why would Naomi win?

          • Number One

            Because they owe Naomi that great moment

        • Jesus’s brother

          Keep dreaming boy!

    • glassjaw

      Given that there’s a gaping hole in both RAW and NXT’s women’s divisions I think it’s disgraceful that they have a talent like Naomi spending the majority of her time trying to use fan reiteration as a way to get noticed on Twitter. Even if she is injured there are ways to keep her present on TV and hyping her eventual return.

      Naomi just needs that one defining rivalry to yield the same defining match to help her break out. She has the goods, always has, but I feel like we only get glimpses of her full potential as a wrestler. I want to see Naomi in a match the length and quality of your average Takeover special. I’ve always seen Naomi as someone who’s been on the cusp of greatness many times but the trigger is never completely pulled.

      And the thing about creating a story for Naomi is that her career writes for itself. Let her come out, sans the gimmicky entrance, and talk from the heart: allow her to channel her frustrations into an earnest plea to be taken seriously. You could even do an angle where she wages her career against winning the title from a major heel. Naomi is so genuinely likeable on Total Divas because she has a humility and grace about her; why not just let those same qualities be what defines her as a top babyface in WWE? Casual fans like nice people!

  • Chargemander

    ????good SD. Like the women being put in all these matches, just think Raw is doing overkill putting Sasha and Charlotte in so many matches in such a short time span

  • Vito

    another reason SD is superior

  • howie_ruhl

    Haven’t watched it yet but if they’re doing the cage match because of the La Luchadora factor then good. At least their stipulation had ample justification as opposed to Sasha and Charlotte’s oh-we-need-to-spruce-things-up rationale. Love the latter but the creatives behind their would’ve-been-iconic feud are shit.

    • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

      La Luchadora can interfere in a cage match tho

  • B J

    I hope we’re all super swerved by who La Luchadora is – it better not be Mickie James – I’m hoping its someone new that’s skipped NXT.

    • Eva Marie McGee

      It’s Jane Ellsworth lmao

    • Raekon

      Deonna Purazzo is playing the role so far but from what we read so far they will let Mickie James Switch with her at the time of the reveal. :(

      • B J

        I hope it’s just rumours!!

    • Femme Fatale Venus Fly

      I want it to be Eva, but they name checked her tonight, so I honestly have no clue. I really don’t want it to be Mickie because she deserves a better return.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      It’d be iconic if it’s Crazy Mary Dobson.

    • Geek God

      Me too someone new and already well trained in ring, mic & charisma skills that we don’t know from nxt

    • Divalicious

      YES AT SKIPPED NXT
      Tired of getting already sick of some girls before they even get called up

    • sleeper11

      pretty sure they aren’t going to waste the whole angle on someone unknown. The whole story was created to reintroduce Mickie.

      • B J

        We could all be wrong though, and it’s a storyline to introduce Mickie – but the masked wrestler doesn’t need to be her.

  • I Scream so loud in front of my tv when this moment happened, I really love SD (Even tho last night show us a weird sloppy women wrestler Cj Lunde ?) more incredible than the predictable RAW HW-EMMAlina
    Never debuting-Monster Nia Jobber shit (I love the HW but It’s too old now). Hope this time both can deliver a great match like the ones of Charlotte and Sasha, just to blow our minds away.

    • Raekon

      Her Name in the Indies is Thunderkitty and it’s actually a amazing technical and very good mat wrestler. :)
      The one spot with the finisher was a bit sloppy because she obviously though that Carmella is going for a other move. These matches are not pretrained after all so such things can happen.

      • Oh thank You so much, I read her profile and she is like you describe it, saw a match of hers and was so much better than yesterday. I agree for what you say; it was a sloppy finish but it’s because the bad communication.

  • Femme Fatale Venus Fly

    Very positive this will put the Hell In A Cell match to shame.

    • Luke

      Haha joke

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Probably. We’ll see.

    • Jesus’s brother

      Hmmmm

    • Shady

      HIAC matches are always better

  • SummerNoChill

    Alexa is clearly ready, just because she isn’t Sasha Banks level doesn’t mean she is not ready. Understand??

    • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

      She’s not ready yet

      • SummerNoChill

        in what planet?

      • SummerNoChill

        You are so negative lmao

        • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

          I just tell the truth

      • Welchy

        She is ??

  • #Hooligan

    Let’s hope they won’t have a rematch after rematch after rematch like Sasha and Charlotte did. If Alexa retains, we should have a new #1 contender.

  • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

    I’m not excited, their past matches was very boring

  • ?K . A . T ?

    I’m so glad they got this opportunity! It’s going to be awesome!

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    They better slay. I want to see new stuff done in this match. Please don’t have it be slow paced like their past encounters. Good for Smackdown on actually having big matches because of storyline purposes and not just to make history.

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Perfect stipulation considering the state of the feud. It keeps the action a little bit fresh because both of them have not shown an ability to make the action fresh every single time they are in a match tbh.

    I don’t think it will necessarily be the main event because it just doesn’t feel big enough to be there but they will have to deliver. They have given them a table match where they barely delivered, they had singles matches where they didn’t deliver and now they are giving them a cage match so I will need them and most importantly Alexa to step up. Love her but I want more from her in the ring.

    I am wondering how they are gonna introduce La Luchadora to the mix tho… It’s gonna be a key part of the match so I hope it’s well done.

    • abcburak

      Alexa has to demonstrate that she can compete with 4hw in ring wise

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        And not just the 4HW that’s for sure.

  • TheBoss

    I like how NATURAL this feud is. These women have been feuding for months, yet their rivalry isn’t stale at all. There’s proper story telling. It’s not forced like the Sasha/Charlotte rivalry where they were adding stipulations just for the sake of it.

    • LeBoss

      That’s because they dont do so much in a week.
      WWE fired the cannon way too soon with Sasha vs Charlotte, so the feud started off on a very high note and when u start high u have to continue that way.
      Alexa vs Becky has really been a slow building feud that doesn’t overdue it!

  • Yaniv Avizrats

    Another day… Another Becky vs Alexa title match.

    SD women division is boring and repetitive. Maybe Mickie will save it. Or Naomi.

    • Jesus’s brother

      “(…) or naomi.” LOOOL

  • conan_kun

    The match stipulations for SD women title match are made sense. Before TLC, Alexa throws Becky through the table during contract signing, thus Table match is set. Now Steel Cage match is set because of last title match ends with outside interference, so they book Steel Cage match to prevent that, plus it can protect Becky from eating a pin again with Alexa retains by escaping the cage. On the other hand, Raw women title match stipulations from HIAC, Fall Count Anywhere and Iron Man match for Charlotte and Sasha felt unnecessary, they just simply want to make history.

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      This is so true.

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      Agreed the stipulations for the women of smackdown make sense with the storyline and actually gives a reason for the stipulations instead of just making them feel forced.

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      They did made sense tho, however, they made too much of the fact of making history during the built of the HIAC when they should have simply relied on their history at this point but not on the FCA match. That was perfectly booked through the show.

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    Yes!!! Complain all you want I love this.

  • Hangga

    i want to see alexa retains and moves into another challenger maybe someone from NXT and becky enters feud with luchadora.

    i can see luchadora will smash beckys head with cage door just like matt hardy did to lita

  • juniorsault06

    Everything on smackdown goes so naturally we don’t feel like they’re there just trying to make history

  • glassjaw

    Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss are a naturally charming combination and, in my opinion, their feud over the Smackdown Women’s Championship has been one of the best booked things in WWE these last few months.

  • Wicked Bliss

    That would be the best venue for Becky to be the two time womens champ or Mickie to have her come back. I’m exciteeed! I’m so overwhelmed by abundant opportunities given to Alexa. I hope she wins!

  • Once again, WHY? First of all this feud has really been dragged out and needs to end, and secondly didn’t they learn their lesson at TLC giving stipulation matches to Carmella and Alexa? They’re both too new to handle them. Naomi is seasoned enough to steal the show in these type of matches just like Charlotte and Sasha, but she is on the backburner for nothing, and Nikki and Nattie are in catty storylines despite being veterans. SmackDown needs a major revamp. Once Mickie returns, they should start pushing the more capable girls.

    • Lucas

      Because there’s been outside interference for weeks now.Also, Alexa’s the champ, so she’ll obviously get big matches.It’s natural for them to have a cage match to try to stop La Luchadora from interfering. If it was a male feud it would happen as well. Naomi’s injured, but I can agree about Nikki and Nattie, but I liked the brawl they had.

    • Shady

      Because the story called for it

    • Welchy

      Scrm I knew this was gonna be about Naomi.
      Fvck her. She gone. Get over it

  • Divalicious

    Yas I love how it ties in nicely with the storyline and isn’t just a stipulation match for the sake of it. They better main event though. I agree that this feud has dragged out though, it needs to end at the steel cage with Becky starting a feud against La Luchadora and Alexa facing someone else.

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      Honeslty, with Cena and Styles being the top feud, I highly doubt they will main event. It’s all about the ratings at the end of the day and with SD being on a roll, while I love them both, I don’t think they will and it just doesn’t feel big enough as well but they don’t even need to tbh.

  • Lucius #PYM

    Excited to see this but I feel like they’re doing too many stipulated matches so there’s almost nothing that the next generation of women can really do to break any boundaries and really go outside the box. But at least Smackdown is killing the competition every week, meanwhile Raw is just barely getting by. I thought Mick and Stephanie would be a better team than Daniel and Shane just because Mick and Stephanie seem to care more about womens wrestling but Daniel and Shane actually know how to book people. Mick has way too many chairshots to the head so he probably doesn’t realize the booking is repetitive and Stephanie, well, I don’t think she has anything to do with booking and storylines and is the female version of her dad so she as well doesn’t care what the fans think as far as storylines and booking. Raw desperately needs to step it up because i’m at the point where I skim the entire show and sigh in relief that I didn’t waste time watching everything.

  • Geek God

    This is amazing, women’s wrestling is on a roll!!!

  • Divalicious

    I don’t understand the hate for Becky and Alexa matches I have enjoyed all their title matches so far. I don’t think they need death defying spots to have a good match. Their matches have a different style, they’re not to flashy and i personally like that.

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      I agree.

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      One of my personal favorite from NXT was Becky vs Sasha because it was them wrestling, being technical and really physical! I don’t think every match has to be booked the way Sasha and Charlotte work their match, I love Charlotte and Nettie’s matches, they are different yet deliver and even if it’s not the same style.

      After, something about Becky and Alexa’s feels off to me. The table match was fine, I mean it’s really hard to do great with such a stipulation even for the men if you look at the quality tables matches in the last 5 years for exemple but really, I thought their last match was quite sloppy and overall not really engaging. Alexa is very smart in the ring and it really fits her heel role but, I just don’t really enjoy her in-ring work in general personally.

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      I agree I have loved all of their matches. Are they matt classics? No but there is really good storytelling going on inside the ring imo. I think people are just mad because they are getting better storylines than the raw women’s division so they hate on their matches. Alexa’s title defense against Becky when luchadora interfered was pretty incredible imo and one of the best WWE women’s matches of 2016. Not match of the year but definitely top 10.

  • Divalicious

    just because Alexa won the title early before she has had Takeover level matches like Charlotte I feel people don’t give her her deserved credit in the ring. she is not the best but she is definitely really good.

    • glassjaw

      In my opinion she deserves more credit! Alexa seems more flashy in babyface mode but I think her suit as a heel is to rely on ring psychology. I think her matches could be laid out a bit more but overall she wrestles quite intelligently.

      • Divalicious

        exactly

      • DJ

        because for some, flash, flippy shit= great wrestling. Not taking a shot at any wrestler, but I will choose a wrestler who has good/great knowledge of in-ring psychology than someone who is spot-heavy.

        • glassjaw

          Just my two cents: spots should be used to sprinkle the wow factor over matches, but relying on them alone doesn’t tell a story.

          I’m hoping that Ember Moon isn’t turned into a spot monkey, for instance, because she has a diverse set of in-ring skills not exclusive to her amazing athleticism.

          • DJ

            agreed.

        • glassjaw

          Also think that’s why I’ve enjoyed some of Asuka’s better matches so much. The slower pace, reliance on chain wrestling etc.

          • DJ

            Bayley’s best match is always going to be against Banks, but I thought her Brooklyn 2.0 showing with Asuka was severely underrated with the psychology and drama that engulfed it.

          • glassjaw

            Agreed. Nattie and Charlotte’s Takeover match is another example of drama being conveyed through technical/submission based wrestling as opposed to huge spots.

            Actually, I think Asuka will bring that back out in Charlotte should they enter a feud together somewhere down the line.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            I loved that match tbh, Bayley’s are severely underrated in general because she is a fantastic storyteller and she has great psychology.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        I think Alexa is very intelligent in the ring as well and that fits her heel character so well. She does some little things that I really appreciate. After, I just feel like her matches are missing something and that goes beyond the flashy spot because, we don’t need that to make things great but just overall… Their table matches for example was just fine but her match with Becky on SD was really boring I thought and quite sloppy at times.

        • glassjaw

          I kind of know what you mean – some of her matches just need that one “omg” moment to be memorable. That’s where I would say maybe the matches need a bit more structure.

    • Shady

      She gets plenty of credit

      • Divalicious

        not really

  • LoveEvaBella

    What if La Luchadora is ROSA MENDES?!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL! I miss Peligrosa on TV. She can be Alexa’s annoying valet. Or Melina? If possible, I can see her doing lucha moves.

    • Guilherme Soares

      Rosa is trainning so… that would be cool! haha Rosa is so funny!

  • DJ

    I expect Becky to push Alexa to her best level once they lock horns inside the cage, giving her her best match to date and will hopefully serve as the climax of their feud for the time being. I see either Becky bagging another championship, or Bliss using her wits and brain to extinguish Lynch’s straight fire yet again with the help and the unmasking of La Luchadora.

  • Welchy

    Alexa Queeeeeeennn

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    SD isn’t doing much with this feud. Honestly, too many encounters between them since it started. I’m looking foward to it, but it just feels like another match.

  • HEELHornet

    This is a feud. (This match has been bettered by something else though since), this is where Paul got the idea!

  • TheG.O.A.T

    This match has to be the ending to this feud honestly looking for more out of these two. Their chemistry gets better every time they face off so I’m excited I like that this feud doesn’t feel forced

  • YoungsterJoey

    I hope the match gets the MAIN EVENT slot. Please! Last women’s SD main event was Stephanie vs. Jacqueline for the Women’s Title. It’s time!

    READY for that twisted bliss off the top of the cage! Ive been waiting for this stipulation for a long time, glad its finally happening.

  • Strategize LP

    Doubt this will be any good, their chemistry is non-existent.

    Their last SD match for example was straight bad in my opinion. Every big match it becomes more and more apparent that Alexa simply isn’t ready for this.
