Alexa Bliss hasn’t appeared in a WWE match since Hell in a Cell in mid-September when she was defeated by Ronda Rousey. She hasn’t been able to wrestle because of repeated concussions, but it appears that she’s finally been cleared to make her return to a WWE ring, according to a segment on Busted Open Radio featuring WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry.
“She came back too soon and was in a bad place, but she’s fine and has been cleared,” said Henry, who claims to have sat and talked with Bliss for 15 to 20 minutes about her condition.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Alexa has been training at the WWE Performance Center in Florida. This caused a great deal of speculation that she was working her way back to the ring, and the statement from Mark Henry certainly adds plenty more fuel to that fire.
In the interview, Henry also talked about some of the specifics of Alexa’s concussions, including the details she recalled to him.
“She was like ‘Yeah, I was really bad off. I couldn’t remember where I was. I couldn’t remember what I was doing in the city.'”
Per Henry, Bliss even talked about not being able to remember what flight she was on, and how she had to rely on everyone else telling her what to do. She couldn’t even stand up straight because she was suffering from vertigo.
Henry also talked about how she came back too soon and hit her head again, which put her in a really bad place. He sounded genuinely concerned for her, but also appeared to be happy that she’ll be able to come back. The WWE Hall of Famer talked about being glad that she’ll “be back in the fray,” and wanting to remind her about “who she was.”
In addition, Henry offered some words of wisdom to the young superstar, telling her not to “go back too soon, if you’re not ready.” He reminded her that while plenty of talented women are on the roster, including Ronda Rousey, Nia Jax, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair, she remains “a major player” as a former Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion.
When asked on Busted Open if Alexa Bliss has a set return date, Henry said that he’s not sure when exactly she’ll be cleared to return, but added that Bliss told him it would be coming soon because “she’s 100 percent cleared.”
