The latest bizarre turn in Alexa Bliss and Randy Orton’s saga took place during this week’s WWE RAW.

In a backstage segment, Bliss acknowledged how desperately Orton wanted to escape her mind games. However, she dared him to take a huge leap to get rid of her on the Road to WrestleMania 37. Bliss urged him to do something about his problems at the upcoming Fastlane pay-per-view.

Later in the night, Orton was asked about the challenge by Bliss. While it wasn’t hinted at straight away, the challenge revolved around an intergender match between the two stars at WWE Fastlane. The Viper seemingly accepted Alexa’s challenge and promised to kick her out of his life at Sunday’s event.

Intergender matches have recently seen a resurgence in WWE. However, Randy Orton vs. Alexa Bliss has a lot of suspense behind it. As Bliss gladly provoked Orton to accept her challenge for the intergender match, she must have a few magical tricks up her sleeve, right?

The overarching question surrounding this storyline remains the same — when will Bray Wyatt/The Fiend return to WWE? Could he finally make an appearance at Fastlane?

Perhaps Bliss vs. Orton could include some cinematic elements as well. The air of mystery surrounding their match has certainly generated a lot of interest for Fastlane.

Shayna Baszler kicked Asuka’s jaw and injured her on WWE RAW a few weeks ago. The Empress of Tomorrow returned during this week’s show to gain some payback against the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion.

Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose were scheduled to wrestle Lana and Naomi as Baszler, and Nia Jax joined the commentary table for this bout. During the match, Asuka entered the scene and reestablished her dominance. The WWE RAW Women’s Champion laid out The Queen of Spades.

As for the result of the aforementioned match, Brooke picked up a win for her team on the Road to WrestleMania 37.

Later during the same episode, Asuka and Baszler entered the ring for a one-on-one match against each other. Not only did Asuka win the bout, but she adopted a vicious mindset after the match was over.

The Empress of Tomorrow crushed Baszler’s face into an exposed turnbuckle. The referee soon intervened and questioned Asuka’s morality as well. Then again, what else did the referee expect from a woman who wanted “tooth for tooth” justice?

Perhaps Asuka’s unexpected intensity indicated an eventual heel turn for her in the long run.

Not too long ago, Charlotte Flair stated her intentions for a match against Asuka in the most straightforward manner. If The Queen is supposed to be the babyface in their potential WrestleMania clash, Asuka’s aggressive mentality could cross some boundaries over the next few weeks.
