If they're going to promote stuff and interwind social media into the product, then Bliss needs to be a face. Makes no sense that she is posting anti-bullying messages over twitter, but is heelish.

Granted, she is a great heel, but still.

Moving this to an Alexa specific thread because it's not really in keeping with the kayfabe thread.

Oh, good call.

Still, my point remains. And while we're on this thread, asides from an obvious ratings grab, what was the point of last night's locker room segment?

Both to tease an upcoming segment and:

It's amazing what a thumbnail teasing nudity will do. The only thing on their YouTube account even close to that is Braun flipping the limo.

But seriously, it's pretty classic WCW/Attitude Era. It's something titillating (no pun in tended) to keep you from flipping to something else while they go to break to see what's going to come next.

Meanwhile I sat there wondering how long it would be until she does porn.


Is she done wrestling? I might have missed something....


NINJA EDIT: I caught up. So if she gets another concussion she could be done.

I imagine she (and possibly a number of others) could be taking the Daniel Bryan treatment regime going forward for a bit. Seems to have worked for him. It's a shame, because like her or loather her there's no doubting that without her the women's division is missing a star.

Did anyone else feel uncomfortable for Buddy Murphy after watching that "moment of bliss" segment between Alexa Bliss and EC3?

I mean bad enough Alexa Bliss and Buddy Murphy almost never get to see each other, but to basically have Alexa Bliss flirt with EC3 and make a sexual innuendo.. I couldn't be the only one who found that tasteless on the WWE's part.

They did it between her and Braun. Nothing but actors being actors here.

Yeah, I don't really care. If Buddy and Alexa are secure in their relationship, neither will either of them.

Host of Wrestlemania, I guess this is kinda her role now

Is she dealing with a lot of injuries? Is that the reason she's taken on this kind of stuff?

She had a concussion but returned to the ring recently. She was training other week with Quack. I think she's fine but they didn't want to throw her in a meaningless battle royal.

Oh damn, that's right, I've loved those little videos with Quack. Very cool that he can do guest training spots like that, he must bring a lot of interesting ideas that most at the PC might not think of.

Bingo, I'm pretty sure that's it. Before Ronda came around, Bliss was the top star in the Raw Women's division. And even afterward she was pushed significantly. Even before that, she was the top star in the Smackdown Women's Division.

They know what they have with her, but this year has been all about Becky/Ronda/Charlotte. Rather than throw her in a battle royal and make her look like just another member of the jabroni squad, they're giving her a chance to have a mic and an individual presence on WrestleMania. In my opinion, that's a lot of faith like they showed in The New Day when they were a really over, protected act with no clear direction at Mania.

WWE weirdly seems to know that they have a big star in Bliss. And despite being deemphasized somewhat since her concussion, she's being consistently featured and put into a protected role. She likely would have won over Trish and Lita at Evolution had that injury not occurred, and she and Mickie probably would have been heavily featured in the Women's Tag Team Title picture.

She was back in the ring at the Rumble, and if her role were going to be diminished, I'd imagine that it would have been her that got the Elimination Chamber squash with Ronda.

Alexa is the type they love where they don't have to put her in the ring to make her important. I'm sure after mania, they will find her a top role on one of the brands. Ronda if she is staying is likely taking time off. I'm waiting for that Alexa face turn cause I think she could pull it off.

After Mania, and after the Charlotte/Becky story is done, I can see Bliss being elevated over the Summer and stepping up to be the first non-Charlotte challenger to Becky at Summerslam.

Not unexpected but the breaking news is Alexa Bliss is out of MITB as she's not medically cleared.

Alexa could be done in the ring.

The WWE should send her the Corey Graves route and make her into an announcer.

Oliver

Or a manager or similar, I think. She's one of the best talkers and characters in the division. She's only 27, but the amount of concussions she's had, and the amount of time she's missed due to them, seems to signal that she should probably hang up her boots. She doesn't even really have that much mileage on her, either, she was signed in 2013 I think? Shame.

Only if she calls Ryan Satin again to tell him Sasha and Bayley were crying on the floor.

I mean, I've never seen T.O. and Alexa Bliss in the same room, have you?

The scuttle is that Alexa is the one who leaked that now discredited story Satin revealed about Sasha and Bayley complaining after Wrestlemania. It's an open secret Bliss and Sasha despise each other, though I'm not entirely sure why.

Loving what they're doing pairing Alexa with Nikki Cross. Its a whacky pairing that works while giving both something to do that isn't in the top title picture. Can also turn Bliss face slowly

The best line of the night was:

"You just stand there and look pretty, I'll do all the work."

So Bliss took her coffee to the ring. Brilliant.
