Alexa Bliss On Her In-Ring Return, Nikki Cross’ Main Roster Debut
– One of the biggest draws in the female division has been Alexa Bliss. She went from a virtual unknown that joined the main roster thanks to the brand split to becoming the first female superstar to become RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champion. She was originally going to take on Trish Stratus before the idea was changed. Then, Bliss was set to team with Mickie James against a pair of WWE Hall of Famers Stratus & Lita at the Evolution pay per view back in October before being removed due to suffering several concussions in a short amount of time. She is yet to return inside the ring or take any bumps on TV.
At yesterday’s ACE Comic Con in Phoenix, Bliss took part in a Q&A. She said the MRIs are looking good and she hopes to get be back inside the ring soon.
There has been speculation that Bliss could enter the second ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match. As of now, she has not been confirmed as an entrant. While out of action, Bliss temporarily was the authority figure of RAW’s women division before getting her own talk show.
– After a big drop in ratings, the McMahon family decided to shake things up; which included the addition of several talents from NXT joining the main roster. Several of those names finished up this week with NXT at live events and that includes Nikki Cross.
PWInsider noted how Cross will be joining the SmackDown roster and working with Sanity. This should come as no surprise considering Cross was one of the original members of the Sanity stable in NXT.
Unlike on SmackDown, Sanity found great success in NXT. They went on a wining streak before capturing the NXT Tag Team Championships and then feuded with Undisputed Era; losing in the first ever War Games match under the NXT or WWE name.
