• Reason Behind WWE Booking Alexa Bliss In Long Talk Segments Recently
If you’ve watched RAW recently, WWE booked former RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss in long talk segments.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials like Alexa a lot and think the audience wants to see her every Monday night. Since Alexa isn’t completely ready to return to in-ring action, WWE officials continue to book her in talk segments (despite them turning out to be boring) just to give her more TV time.
On tonight’s episode of RAW, Alexa will host a press conference. Below is what WWE posted about this:
Alexa Bliss to host pre-WWE TLC press conference
“As head of the Raw Women’s division, Alexa Bliss announced via Twitter that she will be holding a press conference this coming Monday in advance of the Raw Women’s Championship Match between Ronda Rousey and Nia Jax at WWE TLC.
WWE Universe members can submit their questions for the press conference using #AskAlexa.
Since taking over the #Raw Women’s division, I’ve put our female Superstars at the forefront of @WWE. So before @NiaJaxWWE and @RondaRousey face off at #WWETLC, I’m holding a press conference and may actually use some of YOUR questions. Use #AskAlexa
…and make them good. pic.twitter.com/ZbXEDFTxQB
