Charlotte Flair vs. Alexa Bliss has the potential to exceed expectations /

Well, it’s officially official. Charlotte Flair vs. Alexa Bliss is set to go down at this year’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view event.

Some may be quick to write this feud off as a throwaway. Others might even go as far as calling it a total waste of TV time and declare that this whole storyline is 100 percent, pure, grade-A horse manure.

If you’re one of those people, I have a question for you.

Is this feud really all that bad when compared to some of the other shticks that’s being featured on WWE programming?

I’ll answer my own question with a cold, hard no and proceed to resume with my short spiel.

On the contrary, it’s quite intriguing.

These two superstars haven’t feuded with one another since the build-up to their match at Survivor Series in 2017. Back then, Bliss was still in her “Goddess of WWE” phase.

Standing at about 5 feet tall, “Little Ms. Bliss” was (and still is) considered to be one of the best on the mic. Her in-ring skills have always been a bit of a controversial topic amongst wrestling fans, however. Some don’t see a problem in this category, while others feel this just isn’t Bliss’ strong suit.

Fast forward to 2021 and 5 feet of fury has transitioned to 5 feet of twisted… and you know, despite a few hiccups, it’s actually been well received.

Bliss’ portrayal of a gothic/crazy/emo/whacked out mad woman has been a highlight on Monday Night Raw for a while now.

As for Charlotte Flair, you’d be hard-pressed to find any wrestling fan who’d try to refute the fact that she’s one of WWE’s best inside the squared circle. Some fans just think Flair is handed way too many opportunities.

A big part of what makes a match a wrestling match so great isn’t always wristlocks arm drags, and technical know-how. It’s a combination of the build-up, the promos, the storyline, the story in itself, the anticipation… and of course, the match.

You didn’t think I forgot about that, did you?

To sum things up, this match could exceed expectations simply due to the fact there aren’t a whole lot of people who think it’s not going to be described as anything better than, “meh”, by wrestling critics and fans when the dust settles.

But remember, this match takes place at Extreme Rules.

Given the right set of circumstances, Flair’s ring skills mixed with Bliss’ ability to pull off just about anything with her twisted persona might just be the match made in heaven that no one saw coming.
