Alexa Bliss has opened up about her recent time away from WWE which included surgery after her nose “collapsed.”
After failing to win the Raw Women’s Championship at Extreme Rules in September 2021, Alexa Bliss was absent from WWE television for a number of months.
The five-time Women’s Champion finally made her return to action at Elimination Chamber after a series of vignettes showed her undergoing counselling. However, after failing to win the Elimination Chamber match and become number one contender for the Raw Women’s Championship, Bliss disappeared again.
Although it was well known that the star was planning to get married during this second break, there were also reports claiming that she had become frustrated with her role within WWE.
Bliss finally returned to Monday Night Raw on May 9th where she defeated Sonya Deville, and has been a regular presence on the show ever since.
Speaking in a new interview with T95 The Rock Station, Bliss reflected on her time away from WWE, which included surgery after her nose “collapsed.”
I had surgery, I had to get my nose all handled because, after six broken noses, it finally collapsed,” she said.
“But then I took that time, as well as that to plan my wedding and get married and go on my honeymoon. So it was definitely much needed. After nine years in the company to have time to actually plan a wedding and do all the stuff that’s basically because we’re on the road, almost like 200 days a year. So we don’t get a lot of time to plan stuff. So it was nice to have that time for once and kind of take advantage of that.”
Upon returning to Raw, Bliss made her entrance with a brand new theme song. The former Women’s Tag Team Champion explained that she actually contributed some lyrics to the track, with a little help from her acting coach.
“The new theme song that I have now I got to collaborate with WWE Music and help with the lyrics and it was a lot of fun, but never really had a lot of input on the music. So this is the first time to do that, and it was fun to use a different side of my brain creatively,
“So our music team reached out to me when I returned. They just like, ‘Hey, we think you need new music. What do you want? I was like, ‘oh, okay,’ I wanted to make it sound more like a song instead of wrestling entrance music. So, my acting coach and I kind of wrote out lyrics and some bullet points of things that we thought could be fun and a song and send it to the team and they took the lyrics and made them a lot better and made the music, and it just kind of turned into what it is now.”
Alexa Bliss is yet to taste defeat in singles action following her return to the ring. On the most recent episode of the red brand, the star competed in a Fatal-Four-Way match to crown a new number on contender for the Raw Women’s Title. The match was eventually won by Rhea Ripley.
