Mickie James & Alexa Bliss In-Ring Segment: 

When Mickie James returned to Raw, she had a feeling that she didn’t really belong. She thought people didn’t get her. Is it because of her southern accent or the fact that she sings country music? Is it because of her age? Mickie only has one person to thank for feeling this way, Alexa Bliss. Since Alexa Bliss realized that she couldn’t manipulate someone like her, she has been spending every waking second to take a cheap shot after cheap shot.
