As we noted earlier this week via Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE Raw star Alexa Bliss was kept off TV on Monday night as she suffered a concussion at the WWE live event which took place this past Saturday night in Hartford.
Following the news of Bliss’ concussion, her status was in question for this weekend’s WWE Evolution PPV, at which she is scheduled to team up with Mickie James in a tag team match against WWE Hall of Famers Trish Stratus and Lita.
During an appearance on Busted Open Radio this week, Mickie James confirmed that despite Alexa Bliss suffering a concussion last weekend, Bliss is planning on competing at Evolution as planned.
“I have no doubts that regardless, we’re all going to be out there and it’s going to be amazing,” said James.
