A WWE Hall Of Famer claims Alexa Bliss is cleared to return!
The past few weeks on Monday Night RAW, we’ve seen WWE Superstar Alexa Bliss taking on a different role as it was reported that the company looked to keep her in the mix while she recovered from multiple concussions (see the story here).
It was said that WWE would be taking extreme caution with regard to ‘Little Miss Bliss’ getting back into the action again, as concussions have been proven to be similar to a sprained ankle wherein once you get one, you’re susceptible to more. Reportedly, WWE has been even toying with the idea of making Alexa the next RAW General Manager, indicating that her absence from in-ring action could be long term.
Today, some interesting comments by WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry on Busted Open Radio have created some headlines as ‘The World’s Strongest Man’ claims that Alexa is cleared:
"She came back too soon and was in a bad place, but she's fine and has been cleared." @TheMarkHenry gives a health update on #RAW Superstar @AlexaBliss_WWE and reveals the advice he gave to her about making her return to the ring. pic.twitter.com/qEiDNVKJRr

EA’s Take: Pump the brakes everybody. This is beginning to take on a life of its own a little bit and people are taking it as “she’s returning imminently”. Just hold on a tick with that. It’s already been documented that WWE is going to take extreme caution with her ring return, which is why Baron Corbin recently put her in charge of the RAW Women’s Division. So don’t expect her in matches again next week. Also, Mark Henry is saying she’s cleared, which I bet is factual. That does not mean she’s coming right back to TV. I think his words are being misinterpreted. I’m taking it more as she no longer is suffering from all the symptoms, which she likely wouldn’t be on TV every week if she still had them. So health-wise I bet she’s just fine, but to me “cleared” doesn’t mean “back”.
