Alexa Bliss has been keeping busy, hosting talk show segments most Monday nights on Raw and getting ready to serve as the host of WrestleMania 35. But there’s still a lot speculation about the in-ring future of the five-time Women’s champ.
After roughly four months off due to injuries, including what sounded like pretty scary post-concussion symptoms, Bliss returned to wrestled in this year’s Royal Rumble match. Since then, we’ve had another report she’s hurt – which Bliss denied – and a handful of house show matches.
So still lots of questions.
The Goddess addressed her status, and transitioning to her current non-wrestling role, while talking to the Asbury Park Press:
“It’s a little bit of a change, but it’s pretty much the same kind of thing. We tell stories in the ring, out of the ring, and I’m able to do both now, which is nice. And it’s just more opportunity to be able to hone my craft and get better at what I do.
A lot of times, in the stories that we tell a lot of people don’t have the opportunity to speak their character, they just have to portray it in the ring. So being able to advance the storylines with talk show (segments) for other characters, plus add another dimension to my character, is a great opportunity.
I’ve been doing live events. It just depends on how I’m being used on Raw that day. One day I’ll have a match and one day I’ll have a ‘Moment of Bliss,’ it just depends on what helps what story get across.”
Not an answer which will dispel concern from fans that her wrestling days are behind her, but one which continues to leave the door open.
