Earlier this week WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry claimed that former Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss had been “100% cleared” for a return to the ring. However, a new report from the Wrestling Observer himself, Dave Meltzer, claims that Little Miss Bliss hasn’t been fully cleared just yet.
It’s a brief one, but here’s what Dave had to say regarding Alexa’s current status in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter after ‘confirming’ she wasn’t cleared on F4Wonline.com yesterday: “Bliss was training on 11/28 at the Performance Center taking light bumps with medical monitoring her.”
Alexa hasn’t competed inside a WWE ring since a 19 October live event where she took part in a tag team match against Nia Jax and Ronda Rousey. She’s been pulled from all in-ring action since then, with WWE said to be treating her with great caution due to multiple concussions suffered over a short period of time. After captaining the Raw women’s team at Survivor Series, she’s been aligned with Baron Corbin on Raw, with the General Manager Elect having her oversee the women’s division.
Speaking about Bliss, Mark Henry said that she told him she couldn’t remember where she was at times following her concussions, and that she had to rely on other people telling her what to do on a recent overseas tour. The World’s Strongest man also revealed that Alexa initially came back too soon from an injury not too long ago, but now “she’s fine, she’s been cleared, we are very happy that she’s going to be back in the fray.”
While he didn’t say when Bliss would be back, Henry did say she’s been “100% cleared” and speculated that a return could happen as soon as next week.
It’s Henry’s word vs. Meltzer’s here…
