Alexa Bliss and Shayna Baszler’s Horror Segment on WWE Raw Receives Harsh Criticism From Fans

Published 06/08/2021, 12:01 AM EDT


While The Fiend hasn’t been seen in WWE for quite some time, Alexa Bliss is maintaing the horror quotient as she haunts Raw alongside the creepy doll known as Lilly. ‘The Goddess’ has been tormenting all those who crossed her and has now taken an interest in Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.

However, Shayna Baszler seems overly confident in the fact that Alexa is just hallucinating everything and that Lilly the doll’s supernatural power is just a superstition. So much so, that she went ahead and daringly crushed the dog beneath her feet on Raw.

To her horror, the entire arena turned against her with lights flickering and the pyro misfiring. Taken aback, Baszler rushed backstage while Alexa Bliss laughed. The insanity did not stop there as Shayna was greeted by an empty locker room. 

There were no staff or Superstars backstage, and Shayna Baszler was all alone. ‘The Queen of Black Hearts’ struggled to make sense of the situation and tried to find a way out. 

However, she found herself trapped by the entity she mocked and crushed beneath her feet. Shayna stared into a mirror and saw the apparition of the doll behind her as Raw ended on a cliffhanger. We could hear her scream when the lights went off, suggesting something gruesome had happened to her. 

WWE’s handling of Alexa Bliss was not received well by fans

Fans immediately took to Twitter to express their opinions on the ending. Some absolutely despised the way WWE handled Alexa Bliss and called it one of the worst endings to the show. 

It’s no secret that this horror angle with Alexa Bliss is increasingly unpopular with the WWE fanbase, and people want to see her return to her original character. WWE assumed it would end for her after the Fiend match against Randy Orton at WrestleMania, but that wasn’t the case. 

We can expect Shayna Baszler to take the same role as Randy Orton in his feud against The Fiend. Tormented by the supernatural powers she chose to meddle with, Shayna will likely have this storyline against her. 

However, a lot of fans seem to appreciate this angle and are excited to see what’s next. As the main event of the show, it did not sit well with the majority, but everyone is surely eager to see what comes next in this questionable storyline.
