3 Hints WWE dropped on the first SmackDown of the year (3 January 2020)
#2 WWE doesn't have major plans for Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross heading into Royal Rumble
A random triple threat tag team women's match took place on SmackDown this week, as the team of Sasha Banks & Bayley faced Lacey Evans & Dana Brook, and Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross. While Brooke and Evans were already having a feud with the heel duo, Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross weren't part of it until this week.
Having taken a hiatus, Alexa Bliss came back to the company a few weeks ago. Bliss, however, hasn't been on SmackDown regularly nor has a major storyline. The same can be applied to Bliss's former tag-team partner, Nikki Cross, who hasn't been involved in a serious rivalry.
Bliss and Cross are unlikely to stay in the rivalry between Banks & Bayley and Evans & Brooke, as it makes little sense. Moreover, it is feasible that Evans will challenge Bayley for the SmackDown Women's Title. With no major feud before heading to Royal Rumble, Bliss and Cross might participate in the Women's Royal Rumble match. Being a five-time Women's Champion, The Goddess will be a favourite to win the Women's Royal Rumble this year.Published 05 Jan 2020, 11:03 IST
