Alexa Bliss is currently the RAW Women's Champion, which makes her the first to hold both that belt and the SmackDown Women's title in her career. But there's one main roster title that she hasn't had the chance to compete for, which is that of Ms. Money In The Bank.
Speaking to Sam Roberts on his podcast, she talked about how much she wished she could have been a part of that match.
“I was really excited for the women of SmackDown because RAW has always been deemed the flagship show and there were times when I was on SmackDown when we didn’t feel like we were getting the same opportunities as the women on RAW, the Hell In A Cell match, but then we started to get opportunities. Becky and I had a steel cage match and a tables match, so we were getting opportunities as well. And the fact that they get to have the first ever women’s Money In The Bank ladder match, I was super excited for them.
Obviously, I would love to be a part of that, but I feel like I have moved to a different brand and I have other things to accomplish on RAW. I was super excited for them. Part of me was like, ‘Oh man, I wish I could be part of that’ because that group of girls is so amazing to work with and it would have been so, so good to be able to have that moment with them, but I’m doing other things.”
The eventual winner of Ms. Money in the Bank, Carmella, was drafted to SmackDown at the same time as Alexa, so they have a special bond, and Alexa has nothing but good wishes for The Princess of Staten Island. She even predicted that Carmella would win the match, though she's quick to point out that she never could have predicted--and wasn't too happy with--the end of the match on June 18th.
“I was happy for Carmella. I actually called it, okay? I said… I did a thing on WWE.com, I said, ‘Carmella is going to win it because if she’s in trouble James is always there to help her,’ so I kind of expected it to happen. In my mind, I kind of wanted to be right about it to be that person that’s like, ‘I told you guys!’ But I was shocked that it actually did happen because I thought it was so far-fetched that wasn’t going to happen.
Then, it did, and I was like, ‘oh, man…’ Well, I was very happy for Carmella, super excited for her and I love her character, who she is, but I was very disappointed that the first ever women’s Money In The Bank ladder match, the briefcase was taken down by a man. No offense to James, but this was supposed to be a moment where our women get to have this moment and the fact that a man had to climb up and take it down for her is what was really kind of disappointing.”
