Alexa Bliss Won't Rush Back To WWE After Pregnancy

Alexa Bliss is in no hurry to return to WWE

Don't expect to see Alexa Bliss come back to WWE soon after her pregnancy. 

The former WWE Women's Champion is currently on maternity leave, with her and husband Ryan Cabrera expecting a baby girl due in December. 

Speaking with The Messenger, 'Little Miss Bliss' noted that she wants to fully recover and spend time with her child before returning to work: 

"I probably won't bounce back as fast as I hope. I'm going to get to working out and doing all that stuff and get to where I need to be, you know, to have time. [I'll have] the first fundamental months with the baby before thinking about trying to rush back to work", Bliss said. 

For Alexa, time away from the business is not necessarily a bad thing, as it gives her an opportunity to evolve and come back as a different version of herself: 

"Time away is always a good thing. When it comes to WWE, time away and reinventing a character and evolving yourself is the key to career longevity at WWE. So I always say, 'Time away is such a good thing because it gives people the time to miss you.' When you're being seen on WWE three or four times an episode, you don't really have anywhere to go with your character. So whenever you take time off, it's always a good time to evolve and to keep going. And I've already been probably six or seven different versions of myself. And each time it's done well with merchandise sales, with bookings and all that stuff. So I don't really like to go backwards with my work. I always like to go forward." 

The 31-year-old last wrestled at the Royal Rumble, where she was defeated by then-Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair. 

Bliss subsequently underwent a procedure to remove skin cancer and appeared on the TV show The Masked Singer, before announcing her pregnancy in May. Due to her time away, WWE have extended Bliss' contract.
