Daniel Bryan talks about WWE SmackDown Alexa Bliss fight
WWE General Manager Daniel Bryan affirmed the SmackDown between the two female wrestlers. He also revealed the reason why there is a need to hold it within metal confines.
According to Bryan, it is meant to keep out possible interferers, in particular, the masked La Luchadora. Then again, Joe Soriano of Sportskeeda speculates she might still find a way to get involved in the match regardless of the steel cage. Apparently, La Luchadora helped Bliss in her previous battle with Lynch at TLC in a Tables Match last December.
