A Moment Of Bliss With Special Guests: Becky Lynch and Nikki Cross
Welcome everyone to a moment of Bliss. She wants to give a shoutout to the brand new WWE 24/7 Champion, Maria Kanellis. By the way, she’s pregnant. You go girl. Another example of WWE Women breaking boundaries. Cross got goosebumps from Steve Austin’s speech from last week. Austin said it best when he said we are family. Then the next night, Dolph Ziggler turned his back on his family when he super kicked Shawn Michaels. Bliss was appalled. Ziggler ruined the feeling of Raw Reunion. Unfortunately, Ziggler is not the only superstar around here who’s lacking a moral compass.
You should’ve seen what happened earlier today. This is disturbing footage. We see a clip of Natalya training in the ring earlier today with Finlay. Becky attacks Natalya from behind. Becky locks in The Dis-Arm-Her Becky tells Nattie that she’ll see her in Toronto. Are you condoning that behavior? That’s ridiculous. Is that the kind of example the Raw Women’s Champion should be setting for the WWE Universe?
We saw her actions last week and it looks like Becky is trying to lay out Nattie before SummerSlam. Bliss has no respect for that. Bliss is going to knock the man down a few pegs. One cue, Becky Lynch appears on the titantron. She hopes that Bliss doesn’t injure herself by turning around too fast. It’s easy to run your mouth when we are apart. Bliss can say whatever she wants for free because she’ll have to pay for it later. Where’s Nikki’s Celtic Pride?
