Team Blue may have to wait a little bit longer to see its Red Queen in the ring.
Eva Marie was prepared to make her long-awaited debut as a member of the SmackDown Live roster this Sunday at SummerSlam, teaming with Alexa Bliss & Natalya to take on Becky Lynch, Naomi & Carmella in a Six-Woman Tag Team Match.
Following the breaking news that Eva Marie will be out of action for 30 days, this bout is left in a state of uncertainty.
All the female Superstars of SmackDown Live — from the neon-lit Naomi and arm-wrenching Becky, to the veteran "Queen of Harts" Natalya and WWE newcomers Carmella and Alexa — are looking to make an impression on General Manager Daniel Bryan and Commissioner Shane McMahon as they contemplate the future of their brand’s Women’s division.
Will Alexa & Natalya power through without the “eternally beguiling” redhead and battle Becky, Carmella & Naomi in a 2-on-3 Handicap Match? Or will the fierce Bliss and the tactical Natalya recruit a partner in time for The Biggest Event of the Summer?
