Alexa Bliss Reveals Backstage Information On Her Title Belt

– WWE RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss recently spoke with Great Day Houston to talk about a wide variety of wrestling topics, check out the highlights below:

On why she chose professional wrestling:

“It’s such an amazing sport, I watched it growing up and it was never really something I knew I could get into, but once I got the opportunity I knew I had to get on it and I knew I had to try for it. I told my mom, I said, ‘Mom I’m going to try out for WWE.’ Her response was, ‘The heck you are!’ She was like ‘You’re are not doing that!’ So I had to try out without her knowing but know she’s like the biggest supporter and so proud of me.”

Backstage information on her championship title:

“This is the RAW Women’s Championship. What’s funny is – this is a little backstage information – the championship had to be shortened for me because it was so big on me, they actually had to take off size to let it fit me. But that’s why I’m ‘Five Feet Of Fury.’”

Update on Kenny Omega Signing With WWE Next Year

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter was this week’s guest on the Ross Report, where he was asked about Kenny Omega’s future with New Japan Pro Wrestling, and if he thinks Omega will end up in WWE next year.

“Kenny is very different, and you gotta remember he’s having the time of his life too. He doesn’t have to go [to WWE] ever, but at some point will he go? This is a real tough question, and he probably couldn’t even give you an answer because it really depends on the lay of the land, because if he is the top guy as New Japan goes international and they build everything around him and he’s the guy, I don’t think he’s gonna be so apt to leave the spot as the guy. If the New Japan thing fizzles in the United States and there’s frustration, then I think he’d be really open to going because I think he could be the guy in WWE, or if not one of the top three guys. Kenny’s contract will be up at the end of January, and I know he’s leaning towards staying another year [in New Japan].”

WWE to Release Paige?

It was recently reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet that former WWE Divas Champion Paige, real name Saraya Bevis, could end up being hit with a battery charge following an incident with Alberto El Patron.

“OPD detectives have found that probable cause exists to charge Saraya Bevis (Paige) with battery. Detectives have sent the information to the State Attorney’s Office for review and the SAO will determine whether to file charges in the case.”

Over the past year, there have been a ton of issues between Paige and WWE, including two wellness policy violations and suspensions, her fiance constantly bashing her current employer, her attending a GFW event in a mask, and, of course, the sex tape leak.

If Paige does end up getting charged with battery, then current WWE policy calls for her current contract with the company to be terminated. The policy states the following:

“WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault. Upon arrest for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately suspended. Upon conviction for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately terminated.”

If Paige does end up getting arrested, then she’ll be hit with yet another suspension, making it three in one year.

AJ Styles Vs. Shinsuke Nakamura Happening at SummerSlam?

On Thursday’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about whether or not Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles will happen at this year’s SummerSlam, as WWE seems to be teasing two opponents for the Phenomenal One at next month’s show — the aforementioned Nakamura, and John Cena.

T”he other thing that’s interesting as far as SummerSlam goes is that they’ve teased AJ against both Nakamura and John Cena. They’ll both be good matches to have but I don’t know which one you would do. There was a very clear Nakamura, more than tease, I mean he outright said that he wanted the title, and Styles gave the indication that he wanted the match. The week before, Styles outright said that he wanted Cena and Cena said that he wanted him. So, I think it’s gonna be one of those two matches.”

Rumor: Brock Lesnar Leaving WWE After WrestleMania 34

News recently broke that current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is interested in returning to the UFC later this year. We also heard that The Beast might actually end up leaving WWE completely when his contract comes to an end following WrestleMania 34 next spring.

On Thursday’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez discussed the Lesnar situation, and whether or not he’ll end up leaving WWE next year.

Meltzer: “The stories that Brock is gonna be done after WrestleMania and he’s leaving to go back to UFC, I wouldn’t take that seriously at all. I mean it could happen, but as best I can tell, he has not made that decision at all, and he’s probably not gonna make that decision for a long time.”

Alvarez: “I heard people talking about Brock being done at Mania, but I didn’t hear two and two put together where he’s leaving WWE because he’s going back to UFC. The impression I got from hearing that was, he wants to do a huge money UFC fight, probably at the end of this year, make a ton of money, and finish up this contract with WWE and then he’d just be done. Like, not going back to UFC, but just, he made his money, he’s 40 years old, and he’s done.”

Meltzer: “Yeah, I don’t have that impression at all. My impression is that he’s gonna do what he does, which is gonna be that he’ll hear both sides, he’s gonna get the numbers up, and then he’s gonna do what he’s gonna do.”
