On Sunday, Alexa Bliss will defend the Raw Women’s Championship against Sasha Banks, Nia Jax, Emma, and now Bayley as well. The latter made a surprise return and was added to the match earlier this week and everyone except Emma was involved in the segment on Raw.
A recent report claimed that Emma’s involvement in the title match at No Mercy was to take the loss because WWE officials were trying to protect everyone else. A lot of fans didn’t like that being the reason, but now Emma isn’t even on the go-home show before the PPV.
It’s being reported by Rajah that the reason why Emma missed Raw this week was because she stayed behind in Australia to visit friends and family after WWE’s tour in the country over the weekend. She’s from Melbourne and that created a chance to be home for a few days.
On paper, it’s likely that Emma will still be taking the loss during the Raw Women’s Title match at No Mercy, but it could lead to something bigger. It’s also been reported that she could be the first rival for Asuka after her debut. WWE officials want to make her look as strong until then.
