Cathy Kelley revealed on Tuesday afternoon that former Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss was struggling with numbness in her arm on Tuesday morning and that the company had decided to pull her from the premiere episode of The Mixed Match Challenge as well as all upcoming live events as a precaution.
The WWE Universe were obviously concerned about the former Champion since she has a huge match against WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus in less than five weeks time, which is without a doubt the biggest match of her career.
The Wrestling Observer is now reporting that Bliss has been cleared to return to WWE TV but only with “minimum- exertion” which means that she can return but only as a manager or in a non-wrestling capacity.
Bliss was in a managerial role Monday night on Raw following her match against Ronda Rousey on Sunday night, which is thought to be where she picked up the injury, to begin with since she was forced to tap to Rousey’s armbar.
Ronda has since moved onto a feud with The Riott Squad since they are her opponents heading into Super Show-Down where she will team with The Bella Twins. Even though Bliss is currently unable to wrestle, her former best friend Nia Jax made her return to WWE on Monday night in a tag team match against Mickie James and Alicia Fox.
The Women’s Division is set to be put under a microscope heading into Evolution on October 28th and WWE will be hoping that Bliss is back and firing on all cylinders in the coming weeks so that the build to her dream match with Stratus can begin.
