In the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, Alexa Bliss was announced to participate in the Elimination Chamber match to determine the number 1 contender for the Raw Women's Championship. The 30-year-old from Columbus will return to the ring for the first time since her loss to Charlotte Flair at Elimination Chamber 2021.
The other participants in the match will be Rhea Ripley, Doudrop, Nikki A.S.H., Liv Morgan and Bianca Belair. WWE's next pay-per-view will be staged on Saturday, February 19 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It will be very interesting to follow the progress of the match between Becky Lynch and Lita, which will also have repercussions on WrestleMania 38.
Alexa Bliss's character underwent a drastic turnaround following her alliance with Bray Wyatt in 2020. The former Raw champion took on several traits of The Fiend character, but the latter's release turned the tables.
After stepping away from the scene for some time, Alexa reappeared with the same demonic look. In the latest edition of 'Legion of RAW' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo explained why the company insists on promoting the character of Alexa Bliss.
Vince Russo opens up on Alexa Bliss
“The case of Alexa Bliss is very similar to that of Chad Gable, who became Shorty G. The WWE has to sell a huge amount of Lilly Dolls, which is why it keeps pushing the Alexa Bliss character.
Everyone realized that the experiment failed, but there is a commercial reason behind the choice of the federation" - Vince Russo analyzed. The latter also focused on the men's Elimination Chamber match: "Brock Lesnar's rivals look like kids in front of him.
Austin Theory is far too small to worry the Beast, the same goes for Riddle. Seth Rollins was smart enough to avoid getting too close to Lesnar. There is too much physical gap between Brock and the other participants in Saturday's Elimination Chamber match.
What is my opinion on Paul Heyman? His promos about him have always been the same for years and years, he has become boring." Alexa Bliss became the sole supernatural star in Vince McMahon's promotion after Bray Wyatt was released.
This came after she cost The Fiend against Randy Orton at WrestleMania 37. Since then, Bliss has used telekinetic powers and her "childhood doll" Lilly to gain the upper hand. Even though she played the role well, fans were not entirely on board with the character. Bliss was written off of television after losing a RAW Women's Title match to Charlotte Flair at Extreme Rules.
