What surprises transpired on the Christmas edition of RAW?
What new developments transpired on the Christmas edition of RAW?

Many greetings of the Holiday Season. This will be the final edition of SKFabe for 2017, and the final weekly news round-up for this year in WWE news and updates.

Much happened this week. Christmas coincided with RAW and Boxing Day with SmackDown Live. Both days also coincided, quite ironically, with Rusev Day.

Before the first edition of RAW from 2018 comes around, we thought we'd bring you a round-up of all the news updates from this week. Go into the New Year, informed and aware!

So, without wasting any more time, here is the latest edition of SKFabe, presented right before you, for your reading pleasure.

#1 Alexa Bliss admitted to holding back in the ring

Bliss explained why she does not execute flashy moves, like the Four Horsewomen

RAW Women's Champion Alexa Bliss has constantly been criticized for not being at par with some of the other females in the WWE's Women's Division. In a recent interview with Sam Roberts for his Podcast, she explained why such was the case:

Being a bad guy, I try not to do a lot of flashy moves and a lot of, I guess, good guy skills because that’s not my character and I feel like people take that as, ‘oh, well, she’s not as skilled as Sasha [Banks] or Bayley, Charlotte [Flair], or Becky [Lynch].

She further went on to state that the criticism only inspired her to do better, in the ring:

I take that as a challenge. I’m like, ‘well, I can do all these things. I chose not to because I don’t have to'. My character isn’t supposed to be flashy and be over-the-top. I’m supposed to be dirty in the ring.

Maybe one day, when she turns babyface, Alexa Bliss can show us exactly what she's made of.

Until then, we'll move on to the next bit of news for now...
