Earlier this week there were reports that Raw’s resident goddess Alexa Bliss had been cleared to return to in-ring action after suffering multiple concussions back in October.
Speaking on a podcast, Hall of Famer Mark Henry claimed that Bliss was “100%” ready to return, but either Henry doesn’t know how to work out percentages, or he’s got rubbish sources, because he was wrong.
Alexa Bliss has not been cleared to return to the ring, and as this comes from Dave Meltzer, it’s probably a bit more accurate.
Instead, F4WOnline reported shortly after that although Bliss had been cleared for some very light in ring work, a full clearance was still some way off.
Adding to this on an episode of Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez noted that Bliss is at the performance centre taking very light bumps, but that she hasn’t even started working in a “real ring” yet.
There is reportedly a ring at the performance centre which is essentially a crash mat which is designed for people returning from concussion to test that they can take light bumps without suffering any concussion-like symptoms.
Alvarez said Bliss isn’t expected to make a full in-ring return until the Royal Rumble at the earliest, and will therefore continue with her current authority role on Raw for the time being.
