There is still time. We are less than a week away from Summerslam and this year’s edition might be the biggest show that WWE has to offer all year. The show is going to be taking place in an NFL stadium for the first time, meaning WWE is going to be trying even harder than usual to make things work. That means they are going to add in everything that they can, which was the case this week.

This week on Monday Night Raw, a match between Alexa Bliss and Eva Marie was officially added to the Summerslam card. The match comes after Marie has not been impressed by Bliss and her doll Lillie, which has caused Bliss to go after Marie in return. Lillie the doll has also seemingly used her powers to annoy Marie, as well as cost Marie’s associate Doudrop a match against Bliss last week on Monday Night Raw. This will be Marie’s first televised singles match since 2016.

They have taken a strange path to get here. Check out what set things up:

Eva Marie storms off of Alexa’s Playground: Raw, July 12, 2021

Eva Marie & Doudrop attack Alexa Bliss: Raw, Aug. 2, 2021

Alexa Bliss vs. Doudrop: Raw, Aug. 9, 2021

Opinion: This is a match that could be quite interesting, though that might not be a good thing. Neither of the two are known as ring generals, which makes me think that we are going to be in for some major shenanigans involving Lillie. I’m not sure how well received that is going to be, and I don’t know how well it is going to go over in front of tens of thousands of fans inside of a stadium. We are getting it one way or another though and that is going to be something.

What do you think of the story? How will the match go? Let us know in the comments below.
