Alexa Bliss has revealed just how close she came to getting back in the ring before discovering she was pregnant.

Speaking to The Messenger, the former Raw Women’s Champion said that she found out she was expecting just days before WrestleMania 39. She added that she was actually preparing to get back in the ring at the time and that the news came as a complete surprise.

“I was preparing for my return in the ring and I was just having really bad cramping. I thought that was weird,” Bliss recalled on Wednesday. “So then I just decided to take a test and then I think I said, ‘Oh s—t.'”

Alexa Bliss Confirms WWE Contract Extension

During the interview, Bliss also revealed that WWE had extended her contract. This means that she’s free to return whenever she’s ready, although this won’t be until 2024.

“WWE gave me time off for [Masked Singer] to kind of fully dive into that experience with rehearsals, vocal lessons, and all that stuff. Storyline-wise, I was not on TV anyway, so it really kind of worked out perfectly,” Bliss said. “[WWE] extended my contract, and so it’s just basically come back when I’m ready. Probably a month after the baby, I’ll start probably getting back into the gym, and getting ready for to see what my in-ring return looks like.”

Alexa Bliss has only wrestled twice in 2023 with her most recent match coming at the Royal Rumble against Bianca Belair.
