Alexa Bliss Joins The Fiend
After teasing it for weeks, Alexa Bliss summoned The Fiend on tonight’s SmackDown and seems to have joined him. Bliss and Fiend’s first connection came at Extreme Rules 2020 where The Fiend used Bliss’ projections to trap Braun Strowman in the Wyatt Swamp match.
After that, The Fiend continued to use Bliss during the buildup for his match Universal title match against Strowman at SummerSlam. In recent weeks, Bliss seemed to be changing his appearance and was getting triggered by The Fiend’s name. She went on to hit Bray Wyatt’s Sister Abigail finisher on the likes of Nikki Cross, Lacey Evans, and others.
On SmackDown, Kevin Owens hosted a special edition of his talk show segment where he enquired about change in Bliss’ behavior. Bliss replied that people always fear what they don’t understand. The Fiend then appeared to attack Owens and the segment with Fiend and Bliss holding hands.
