WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss and former champion Becky Lynch have been feuding for months. Both are competing for that top spot on SmackDown‘s female division. Who do you think is better? Do you like Becky? Or do you like Bliss? Maybe you like both (I know I do). Stick around and check out some truly awesome photos of both women.
On WWE SmackDown Live, the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship was defended inside a steel cage for the very first time. The champion Alexa Bliss was looking to put out the fire of the “Irish Lass Kicker” Becky Lynch. And the challenger Lynch was hoping to recapture that beautiful blue belt.
Bliss and Lynch have been at each others’ throats since early autumn 2016. They set SmackDown ablaze with their fiery feud. Alexa finally won the championship back in December at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. Now, they’re locked inside the confines of a steel cage. Who will make it out as champion?

Who is Alexa Bliss?
Alexa Bliss is the current WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion. In high school, she was extremely active in sports, taking part in track, kickboxing, softball and gymnastics. She is a former college cheerleader. Alexa has only been a professional wrestler for a little over three years, yet she’s already at the top of SmackDown‘s woman division. Bliss signed onto a WWE developmental contract back in May 2013. She made her debut with WWE’s NXT brand on September 21, 2013. While in NXT, she managed the tag team known as Blake & Murphy. She also battled with Bayley over the NXT Women’s Championship. She was drafted to SmackDown on July 19, 2016. Since then, she has proven herself as one of WWE’s top rising stars.
Who is Becky Lynch?
Becky Lynch is a 15-year-veteran of professional wrestling despite being only 29-years-old. In 2002, this Irish-born lass kicker made her pro debut at only 15 years old. She wrestled around the world long before stepping foot in the WWE. While still a young teenager, she toured Japan, Europe, and North America. On April 8, 2013, Lynch was signed to WWE’s farm league NXT. In my opinion, her match at NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable against “The Boss” Sasha Banks was one of the best wrestling matches of 2015. On July 13, 2015, Becky made her main roster debut on Monday Night Raw, alongside Charlotte and Sasha Banks. All three wrestlers have truly raised the bar in women’s wrestling. Lynch has stood out on her own once in the blue pond of WWE’s SmackDown. She’s the first and former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion. Her eyes are now set on Alexa Bliss. Becky wants her title back!
Alexa Bliss vs. Becky Lynch
Both women are looking to go to war. They’ll have to fight it out inside an unforgiving steel cage. You can win via pin or submission. You can also win the match by escaping through the door or by climbing up and over the cage. But it won’t be easy. Both Becky and Bliss want to walk away as WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion.
