Alexa Bliss Withdraws From WWE Mixed Match Challenge, Replaced By Ember Moon

Former Raw Women's Champion woke up with a numb arm on Tuesday...

WWE have announced that former Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss has withdrawn from the upcoming Mixed Match Challenge due to injury. Replacing Bliss is Ember Moon, who will now team with Braun Strowman for the duration of the round robin tournament.

The reason for Bliss' withdrawal is due to her waking up with numbness in her left arm on Tuesday morning - at the time of writing, it isn't clear whether this is just a part of a storyline, or if it's legit.

Alexa appeared on Monday's episode of Raw, watching on from ringside as friends Mickie James and Alicia Fox teamed-up to face Moon and the returning Nia Jax. Bliss didn't get involved in any of the action inside the ring, so read into that what you will.

On Sunday night, of course, Alexa failed in her latest attempt to take back the Raw Women's Championship against Ronda Rousey. Interestingly, in the video announcement for Little Miss Bliss' withdrawal, Cathy Kelley reminds us that Rowdy Rousey won that Hell in a Cell match via her trademark armbar, so again, read into that what you will.

Season two of WWE Mixed Match Challenge starts tonight on Facebook Live immediately following SmackDown Live. The team of Ember and Strowman will face Natalya and Kevin Owens, while Naomi and Jimmy Uso will face Charlotte and WWE Champion, AJ Styles.

Last season, Team Little Big, as they were known, reached the semi-finals before being knocked out by eventual winners, Miz and Asuka. No pressure, Ember.
