Hopefully Alexa wins here.

exactlythey did Ronda vs. Sasha and Becky vs. Asuka at the Rumble this year and those were both great. Now the SDL women are in catering while they're doing a rematch for the worst women's match in the past 5 years because it was such good shit 2 years ago fpalm
Two pretty damn good matches on the same ppv. Now we'd be lucky to get one good divas match on the PPV for the rest of this year. It's almost as if Vince doesn't give a fuck about wrestling and only caters to the fans who like seeing "pretty" girls in the ring. If Divas wrestling peaked at the royal rumble this year, thats gonna be a sad state of affairs.they did Ronda vs. Sasha and Becky vs. Asuka at the Rumble this year and those were both great.

They should have ~accidentally deleted that abomination from their achieves not highlight its existence.Well WWE is already working people, they put the whole Kendo stick match up on twitter for some strange reason.
Source: https://411mania.com/wrestling/details-on-why-nikki-cross-was-added-to-alexa-bliss-vs-bayley-at-extreme-rules/Recently on WWE TV, the Smackdown Women’s title match between Bayley and Alexa Bliss was changed into a handicap match, with Nikki Cross added to Bliss’ team. According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, this was not the original plan and the addition of Cross was a late change.
According to Melter, Alexa Bliss has a “real bad sinus infection” and the changes plus the rewritten storylines, as well as Bliss’ absence from TV this week, were due to Bliss’ illness. The handicap match was done as a way to protect Bliss. This is also why the Beat the Clock challenge between Bayley and Cross was booked for RAW, to set up the stipulation, which Cross won.
Yes and all the while they have someone like Asuka wasting her time in the tag division and misused Sasha so much she practically left.So Bliss is in bad enough shape that WWE doesn't want her doing much in the ring, yet instead of simply replacing her they just add Nikki to do the heavy lifting. Almost like it's crucial to the story that Bliss, specifically, is in the match.
OR they could've just had Nikki (even though she's on Raw too) face Bayley to begin with. If Alexa's not well, then keep her home for awhile. Don't rush her back just because she's booked to compete. Have Alexa kayfabe choose Nikki to fight on her behalf.Details On Why Nikki Cross Was Added To Alexa Bliss vs. Bayley At Extreme Rules
So basically they are treating Alexa like they have always treated her. Have a bunch of talented in-ring performers do all of the heavy lifting for her because she is incapable of having a good match and is too injury prone to even compete half the time. Alexa entertains me and all, but at what point do we just admit that she is not cut out to be a wrestler and maybe she should take a different role as a valet who can wrestle here and there if she needs to. Having her in the title picture is just stupid at this point because she hasn't even proven that she can handle being a full time wrestler for like 2 years now. You have very talented women like Asuka, Kairi Sane, Charlotte, Ember Moon or even Sonya and Liv on Smackdown who could have used this opportunity to face Bayley. But instead they ship Alexa over from RAW and basically treat Bayley as the third wheel in a storyline that has nothing to do with her and makes her look like an afterthought.Details On Why Nikki Cross Was Added To Alexa Bliss vs. Bayley At Extreme Rules
