SmackDown: Alexa Bliss And Elias Return

As noted earlier, last night’s episode of SmackDown saw the return of Sheamus in a backstage vignette. Apart from The Celtic Warrior, two more stars made their return: Alexa Bliss and Elias.

On SmackDown, Nikki Cross faced Sonya Deville in a singles match, with Deville having Mandy Rose at ringside which of course meant that Cross was prone to many a distraction from Rose.

Cross however ended up winning the match after rolling up Deville for a pin. After the match was over, Deville and Rose both ganged up on Cross and attacked her until Alexa Bliss came out to save the day.

Bliss has been out of action since the Hell in a Cell event where she and Cross lost the tag titles to Asuka & Kairi Sane, The Kabuki Warriors back in October. Bliss will be making her in-ring return at the WWE Starrcade event on 1 December where she will participate in a Fatal 4-way tag team match for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship. Bliss will team with Cross to go against the teams of Asuka & Kairi Sane, Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair and Bayley & Sasha Banks.

Elias returns in backstage segment

Elias also made a small appearance in a backstage segment involving Dana Brooke and Drake Maverick. When asked where he was gone, he said he was on an “outwards” and “inwards” journey and that he has changed. He then played a tune on his guitar and jammed out with Dana.

Elias has been out with an ankle injury since September, and he was removed from the 2019 King of the Ring Tournament. But now it looks like we can expect to see more of him soon on our TVs again.
