Alexa Bliss is having the time of her life with bestie Nikki Cross as the reigning WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions on the main roster.
On the SummerSlam go-home edition of Monday Night RAW, Bliss and Cross defeated The IIconics, Kabuki Warriors and Fire & Desire to capture the titles in ecstatic fashion.
Now that Bliss is carrying a prestigious title around her waist, she is extra cautious of the moves that could bring her career to a sudden end. The Goddess has dealt with several concussions in the past and that has allowed her to be severely aware of the moves she should completely refrain from performing in the ring.
During a recent interview with SkySports, Bliss said,
“Once you have a concussion it’s easier to get re-concussed and I found that out very clearly. It the brain, it’s not like an ankle you can tape up and you know the time frame that it’s going to heal – the brain is a completely different thing.”
“I feel a lot better now with the information and the education I was given when it comes to concussions.”
“I am very fortunate that the team of doctors that I was put in touch with are very familiar with concussions.
Little Miss Bliss had suffered a severe concussion against Ronda Rousey last year at SummerSlam. A few weeks later, she again concussed herself and was forced to sit on the sidelines.
WWE eventually cleared Bliss for in-ring competition in January; The Goddess made her much-awaited return at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view by entering the women’s Rumble match at #26.
“It’s been a long year but I’m happy that I was given the information I was because now I can be more pro-active when it comes to protecting myself when it comes to a concussion and be safer in the ring.”
