Both Vince and Stephanie McMahon have recently commented on the Alexa Bliss vs. Sasha Banks match from Abu Dhabi last night.
The match was the first between two females in the country. Bliss and Banks both wore outfits which covered everything but their hands and heads to adhere to the country’s cultural norms.

Raw Women’s Division
With Paige’s return and the recent additions of Asuka, Mandy Rose, and Sonya Deville, the division has grown considerably in recent months. It looks as though they are building towards a Paige vs. Asuka match, which could be held at the Royal Rumble.
As for the championship picture, Bliss will pass Charlotte in 10 days as the longest reigning Raw women’s champion since the brand split.
