Alexa Bliss Fights Back After Rousey Attack
One of the wrestlers who took offence to Ronda’s statements is five-time WWE women’s champion Alexa Bliss. During an interview with Sporting News, Alexa Bliss snapped back at the former WWE and UFC champion.
Bliss had lots to say about the aggravating statements made by Ronda Rousey. While she said she respects Rousey, she also said that her statements were more than a little insulting.
“So kind of when someone does that, it’s offensive. It’s offensive to the girls that have worked their butt off, like you said.”
I couldn’t agree more with Alexa Bliss. It’s statements like Rousey’s that take away from the achievements of wrestlers as whole. Professional wrestling is a dangerous sport and people do get injured. Not to mention the physical shape they have to be in to wrestle. The are fit!

Calling wrestling fake has been a sore point for wrestlers and fans alike, and Ronda has certainly played on that. If she is returning to the ring soon, she will most likely return as a heel.

Even though Alexa has not been in the ring that much since suffering multiple concussions, she has not been idle. In fact, she worked alongside other WWE superstars for the new series “Fight Like A Girl.”
Fight Like a Girl is a new WWE reality TV show where female wrestlers help women transform their lives.

Stephanie McMahon is the brains behind the operation and is responsible for pairing one of the women with a WWE superstar. As the first episode with Alexa Bliss is already available, I can tell you it is worth a watch.
