- SportsKeeda is reporting that WWE officials are not happy with SmackDown Women's Champion Alexa Bliss' in-ring work, despite her promo ability. It was noted that she is believed to have very little chemistry with anyone on the roster other than Becky Lynch, and Lynch is credited for the "passable matches" that they do have. Road agents were also apparently not happy that Bliss did not have a good match with Mickie James on SmackDown this past Tuesday.
Update March 17, 2017 1:57pm ET: WWE producer "Road Dogg" Brian James shot down the report when asked about it on Twitter. When asked if the report was true, he replied "hell no!," before noting that Alexa is "a star" and "everyone knows it." You can check out his response below:
