Kurt Angle officially announces Mickie James will challenge Alexa Bliss at TLC 2017

WWE on Twitter

Little Miss Bliss has her next challenger. With about one-week’s worth of tension between Alexa Bliss and Mickie James, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle booked the two women in first match of WWE’s annual TLC pay-per-view.

James’ night began with Bliss playing a joke on her. Bliss thinks James is ancient and to further emphasize her point the Raw women’s champion gift wrapped a box of adult diapers and gave it to James.

The prank led to a match with James and Bliss’ BFF and or frenemy Nia Jax. After James’ match with Nia Jax ended via disqualification, Angle surprised James during a backstage interview to grant the former WWE Diva’s champion a shot at Bliss’ title at Raw’s next pay-per-view.

TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs goes down on October 22, 2017 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Here’s the updated TLC match card:

  • Alexa Bliss vs. Mickie James (Raw women’s championship)
