Raw’s latest multi-woman title match went down in Los Angeles on Sunday night (Sept. 24). This time around, it was a Fatal 5-Way where Alexa Bliss who faced long odd if she hoped to retain against her long-time rivals Sasha Banks and Bayley, the hashtagging Emma and the champ’s friend - outside the ring, anyway - Nia Jax.
As these types of matches often do, competitors were removed from the ring at various intervals. Nia and Bliss went out first, which eventually led to a Bayley/Sasha face-off, which gave way to another Jax vs. Alexa wrestling and shouting contest, and so-on and so-on.
Nia got a nice chance to show off her skills, perching the champ and Bank on her shoulders for a double-Samoan drop:
It lead to a moment where all four women teamed up to take out Nia, and it looked like the spot where Emma and Bayley powerbombed her off the apron with an in-ring assist from Bliss and Banks might have done the job for real when he landed hard on her neck and shoulders:
Jax made it back into the action, but when Alexa side-stepped a charge, she went right into the ring post and out of the ring. Some confusion between Emma and Bayley followed, and The Hugster ended up taking Bliss’ finisher.
The Goddess reigns - despite Staples Center’s preference for Nia.
