Alexa Bliss: Bianca Belair Has Been A Great Champion, But Her Days Are Numbered

Alexa Bliss remains focused on winning a title, and her current alliance with Bianca Belair hasn't changed that.

During an interview on the July 25 episode of WWE Raw, Bliss warned Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair (and her SummerSlam challenger, Becky Lynch) to watch their backs. She vowed to regain her place at the top of the women's division. The following week, Bliss aligned with Belair and Asuka to face off against the trio of Dakota Kai, IYO SKY, and Bayley. The two teams will collide at WWE Clash at the Castle.

Speaking on the August 17 edition of WWE's The Bump, Bliss was asked about this memorable message and her interest in the gold while she is currently fighting alongside the champion. She responded by making it clear that she and Belair are on the same team for now, but after WWE Clash at the Castle, it will be every woman for herself.

“It’s gonna be great tagging with Bianca, but I still have the goal of being [at] the top of the women’s division again. It’s been a long time, it’s been about four years since I’ve held a singles championship for the women’s division, and I look forward to changing that as soon as I can, whether that’s against Bianca or anyone else on the roster. But right now, we’re all tagging together and seeing how that goes at Clash, and then after that, it’s every woman for themselves," Bliss said.

She also shared her thoughts on Belair's title reign, noting that the latter has been doing a great job by bringing out the best of her opponents and showing why she's the better competitior. Bliss also stated that, after WWE Clash at the Castle, Belair's days with the gold are numbered.

"I think she’s done great as a champion. It’s not only just how dominant she is, it’s how dominant her opponents are against her. Anyone she faces, she brings out their strengths as well and exposes their weaknesses and wins with her strength and her talent. I think that’s really important for a champion to also highlight your opponent, as well as show why you’re the better competitor, and that’s why you’re champion. But we’ll see. Her days are numbered after Clash," she said.

Bliss and Asuka have advanced to the next round of the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship Tournament. They will face SKY and Kai on the August 22 episode of WWE Raw. More information is available here.
