Rumor on Why Nikki Cross Was Added to Title Match at Extreme Rules


Earlier this week, WWE announced that Nikki Cross was added to the SmackDown Women’s Title match between Bayley and Alexa Bliss as that contest was changed into a handicap match.

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, this was not the original plan and the addition of Cross was a late change because Bliss has a “real bad sinus infection.” This was the reason that Bliss absent from TV this week.

The Extreme Rules pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, July 14th, 2019 in Philadelphia, PA at the Wells Fargo Center and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. Both Raw and SmackDown brands will be featured.
