Alexa Bliss teamed with Braun Strowman as part of the Mixed Match Challenge earlier this year and interestingly the duo became one of the most popular pairings. Bliss and Strowman were known as Team Little Big and would be part of a number of interesting backstage segments, where Strowman would attempt to flirt with Bliss and made her size look cute.

The duo was knocked out of the Mixed Match Challenge by Asuka and The Miz and didn’t make it to the final that saw the duo overcome Charlotte and Bobby Roode to become the inaugural winners.

Following the competition, Bliss and Strowman seemingly went their separate ways but have had a number of interactions on WWE TV since including one in the ring ahead of Money in the Bank back in June.

Bliss recently spoke to the Miami Herald, where she revealed that if Asuka wasn’t in the competition, she would have won it and there would have been many more segments on WWE TV surrounding Team Little Big.

“It was so much fun…We kinda got to do our own thing. She said via Sportskeeda. “We got to show our own personalities away from Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss; and it was a lot of fun. We were doing it for charity, and we got to represent Connor’s Cure which was awesome. It was just a lot of fun because we got to make it our own. There weren’t a lot of people telling us what to do. It was more like, “what do you guys want to do?”

“There was actually some stuff we were wanting to film where I’m trying to get into Braun’s big truck, but we didn’t have time to do that—we got beat before we could do that. If Asuka wasn’t in it, we would have won.”

Bliss is a recognizable heel on Raw, whilst Strowman has become a firm fan favorite, which could be one of the reasons why WWE decided to distance the two stars.
