We have a video package for tonight’s Alexa Bliss versus Asuka match and the revelation that Alexa was stringing Nia Jax along to do her dirty work.
Alexa has something to say before her match, and she is joined in the ring by Mickie James.
Alexa says she said some things about her best friend, Nia Jax, that were hurtful and wrong. She did not know there was a world wide audience or that Nia was listening, but that is no excuse. She was joking around with Mickie. It was just girl talk. Alexa says she knows that she got carried away in the moment and said some things she shouldn’t have. Alexa says that she is sorry. Alexa says she sincerely apologizes . . . that she didn’t speak the truth sooner.
Alexa says she is not going to apologize. The word ‘sorry’ does not fit in her vocabulary. She says she did not lose any sleep over this. Nia was embarrassed in front of the whole world and she loved every moment of it. Alexa says she never liked Nia, she used Nia. Does Nia think that someone like Alexa would be friends with her. Alexa says she feels so much better now that she got this off her chest.
Alexa says she got a weight off her shoulders and she dropped 300 pounds of pathetic loser. Alexa tells everyone to save their pity boos on someone else. Now that she does not have Nia dragging her down, she can end Asuka’s streak.
