"Little Miss Bliss" is prepared to defend her RAW Women's Title at any time.
The woman who was the first to hold both the SmackDown Live & RAW Women's Titles, Alexa Bliss, spoke with the Las Vegas Review Journal ahead of this Sunday's 'Elimination Chamber' PPV event in Las Vegas. Prior to Bliss's rise to stardom on the main roster, she played a number of roles in NXT that did not spotlight her often. Fast forward to her being drafted to SmackDown Live in 2016; Alexa Bliss would have an immediate impact on SD Live's women's division.
“When I was brought up to SmackDown, I was one of the underwhelming draft picks. I had to make the most out of every opportunity because a lot of times on WWE, if you don’t deliver, those opportunities don’t come back.”
Bliss will be defending her RAW Women's Championship inside the first-ever Women's Elimination Chamber match this Sunday. Also on that PPV card, will be former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion, Ronda Rousey, who will be signing her RAW contract as she also looks to make an impact on WWE's women's division. The self-proclaimed "Goddess" of the WWE stood mere feet away from Rousey, as Rousey made her WWE debut at the end of the Women's Royal Rumble match.
"Nobody knew what was going on or that she was there." Bliss stated. "She came out and it was definitely a surprise, but I think it’s exciting that she comes to WWE because it brings a new fan base and a different dimension to WWE. It just shows it takes top athletes to do what we do and the fact that one of UFC’s top athletes wants to be in WWE, that’s great.”
As noted, Alexa Bliss will be defending her RAW Women's Title inside of the Elimination Chamber against: Sasha Banks, Bayley, Mandy Rose, Mickie James & Sonya Deville.
