SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...

Former WWE Women’s Champion, Alexa Bliss, has reportedly been frustrated with her creative material since the Elimination Chamber PLE in Saudi Arabia.

Fightful Select is reporting that Bliss spoke up about her frustration with creative direction after the event and took that frustration to the highest level of Vince McMahon. The report indicates that Bliss was willing to work WrestleMania, but wasn’t used even after numerous pitches were made regarding her involvement. Some pitches included her getting involved in the Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair Raw Women’s Championship Match, but those ideas were quickly dismissed.

Bliss made her return to WWE television after a long hiatus at the Elimination Chamber event. She was featured in a batch of therapy vignettes in the lead up to that match, but was not seen on television. Before her hiatus, Bliss was heavily involved with The Fiend vs. Randy Orton feud, which culminated in a match at WrestleMania 37 last year in Tampa Bay. On the show, Randy Orton won the match and ended the months long story between all three characters.

Alexa Bliss has been with the WWE since 2013. In NXT, she managed the Blake & Murphy tag team before branching out on her own as a singles act in the women’s division. Bliss was called up to the main roster in 2016. She is a five-time WWE Women’s Champion across both the Raw and Smackdown brands, is a two-time Women’s Tag Team Champion, and has won the Money in the Bank briefcase.
