At the Evolution pay-per-view event in 2018, Alexa Bliss was set to team with Mickie James to take on the team of WWE Hall of Famers Lita and Trish Stratus in a tag team match.
Heart-breakingly, Bliss had to be pulled from the match due to a concussion. She was replaced at the last minute by former Divas Champion Alicia Fox.
Speaking to FOX Sports, Alexa Bliss opened up about being pulled from the match at the last minute and missing out on the historic pay-per-view event:
“It was heartbreaking because they said, ‘take the impact test. There’s a chance you might get cleared right before Evolution. We’ll have you in the ring the day before to see how you’re feeling,’ and I ended up having really bad vertigo from the concussions. I couldn’t do anything, and I found out literally as I was flying to Evolution I wasn’t going to be cleared. It sucked, but it was a lot of fun being part of that moment and being able to watch it as a fan.”
Despite seemingly a lot of fan demand, WWE has not yet held its second Evolution pay-per-view event.
