Alexa Bliss: Women Are Literally Taking Over WWE

Alexa Bliss won't be wrestling at WrestleMania 35 but she will have a prominent role as the host of the event.

Speaking to the Asbury Park Press, Bliss discussed the women's evolution and their various roles at WrestleMania 35.

"Our women have worked very hard, with the women's evolution and the revolution and keeping it going," Bliss said. "To have our women included in so many things (at WrestleMania) — we have title matches, we have tag team titles now, a female host — it's great that our women are literally taking over WWE. When I first started, there wasn't actually that much expected from our women. And to see us kind of change the game with Emma and Paige having the first NXT women's title match to having Ronda Rousey (on the Raw roster), it's been crazy to see the whole change and to see how many opportunities we've earned from WWE and how much we deliver."

Bliss was sidelined last October and battled concussion issues through the end 2018 and into 2019. She has been used sparingly in the ring since her return to action at the Royal Rumble. However, she's remained on television, first as the Overseer of the Women's Division and now as the host of A Moment of Bliss.

"It's a little bit of a change, but it's pretty much the same kind of thing," Bliss said. "We tell stories in the ring, out of the ring, and I'm able to do both now, which is nice. And it's just more opportunity to be able to hone my craft and get better at what I do. A lot of times, in the stories that we tell a lot of people don't have the opportunity to speak their character, they just have to portray it in the ring. So being able to advance the storylines with talk show (segments) for other characters, plus add another dimension to my character, is a great opportunity."

Bliss joins Hulk Hogan, The Rock, The New Day, and Kim Kardashian on the list of stars who have hosted WrestleMania.
