Re: Alexa Bliss Fan Thread #2

“A Moment of Bliss” debuts



Alexa Bliss will debut the first-ever WWE talk show segment hosted by a woman, “A Moment of Bliss,” on 2019’s first edition of Raw, and she’s locked down Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey as her inaugural guest.

Given the contentious history between The Goddess and The Baddest Woman on the Planet (look no further than their title bout at last year’s SummerSlam), Bliss won’t hold back when it comes to grilling The Rowdy One. However, should Bliss overstep her bounds, Rousey won’t hold back either.

I wonder how much time they're gonna give this or if they'll treat it like a big deal at all. This is the most stacked Raw line-up in a while with Hogan making an appearance, Cena and Lesnar returning, etc. Hopefully this doesn't end up like her last advertised segment on Raw a few weeks ago.

LOL, what? The same Bliss who got frightened when confronted by Rousey a month ago here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnukoxScsI4 ? Is that just some intentional false advertising? WWE has one of the most hilariously all-over-the-place storytelling and characterisation in entertainment.

They don't even remember segments they did a week ago, let alone a month ago.


This whole thing could go in a lot of different directions. I hadn't really considered this before, but since Asuka is defending her belt at the Rumble (against Carmella, I assume) Rousey will probably defend hers, too. If Alexa is healthy and this is really gonna be a confrontation between her and Rousey they better not even think about doing another Bliss vs Rousey match at the Royal Rumble. I don't believe that's gonna happen, but the thought did cross my mind when I read this preview and saw that SD has a #1 contender match on Tuesday.

It's far more likely that the Riott Squad or somebody else crashes the interview and challenges Ronda. Maybe Ronda vs Ruby or Liv Morgan at the Rumble.

Most importantly, I hope Alexa announces that she's entering the Royal Rumble Match during the interview. I still say if she doesn't announce it on Raw she won't be in the Rumble Match.

This Raw is going to be stacked. Hogan, Lesnar, Cena and Flair are all making appearances. It will be interesting to see how much time the Alexa/Rousey segment gets.

Re: Alexa Bliss Fan Thread #2

I'm really curious how this segment will play out tonight. Will it lead to something between Alexa and Ronda, will Becky or Charlotte show up or maybe somebody from NXT will debut.

As said before, I have a hard time imagining Alexa vs Ronda #3 after the first 2, but of course Ronda will most likely defend her title at least once before WM and because of the co-branding there are 3 PPVs left before WM this year. Alexa's status is acting as a kind of x-factor. If Alexa is cleared maybe they could go this route again although I don't hope so.

From all current ladies on the Raw roster the Riotts are propably the only other option. Or maybe we completely overthink the segment and the 2 will only have a battle of words.

As far as time concerns I don't think they will cut this segment short, too much starpower in it. This episode will rather have 1 or 2 matches less than usually.

Re: Alexa Bliss Fan Thread #2

So I was late in my Smackdown watching, just watched last night (I was away)

Anyway. I know this is not going to happen, but while watching that John Cena/Becky stuff. Was thinking, THAT is what should be going on at RAW when Cena shows up. (minus Alexa actually wrestling)

They should have had John Cena be Alexa's first guest, not Ronda. Cena is very good at promos and thinking on the fly, .... and then matched with Alexa? Well, that could have been very entertaining imho. Not taking a shot at the Ronda being on the show, I'm sure it will be good. Just that Cena is making a special appearance, so why waste the opportunity.

What do you think?

P.S. - I found it interesting how "the man" was put up against a valet/jobber. Awe, that was cute.

They probably should have thought about that before they basically had Natalya defeat the entire Riott Squad in a 1-on-3 handicap match at the last PPV. We barely have any credible female heels on Raw, so let's just completely bury three of them to give Natalya a feel good moment. What a brilliant, glorious idea that was.

The problem with Ronda Rousey as Champion is the same problem as Brock Lesnar as Champion WWE Presents them as so untouchable it devalues the rest of the Roster.

Imagine if you have a Stone Cold Steve Austin type Babyface going after Brock Lesnar doing things like breaking all the rules kidnapping Paul Heyman that would be must see television. But no Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar are untouchable and their matches are boring and predictable.

Congrats to Alexa Bliss for being the 4th superstar to have a 2nd fan thread in the section (behind the likes of Asuka, Becky Lynch, and Seth Rollins) :nice

Am I the only one that thinks it's completely obvious that the segment tonight is just being done for Ronda to be interrupted by the nxt call up?

Probably that MMA woman who supported Alexa in her feud with Ronda at SS. But the fact they are giving Alexa her own show, is a testiment to how they value her. Hopefully she announces her placing in the Rumble though.

I don't think it's obvious, but it could certainly happen. To me the three options are:

a) Riott Squad crashes the show to challenge Ronda
b) NXT call-up crashes the show to challenge Ronda
c) It's just about Ronda and Alexa, leading to another match at the Royal Rumble.


The only reason why I think it might not be an NXT girl is the fact that you probably don't want to call someone up and immediately feed them to Ronda. You'd like to build someone up a little bit before that happens.

Option C is obviousley the prefered option. Although not sure how the demand for another Ronda Alexa Match is. Their last match was better than SS. Their first segment which has ammased 18 million views. Was very good. A Segment near that would be good.

Wasn't the hardest job to book a better match at HIAC after the way they booked it at SS. 5 time champ vs a bloody rookie and they made Alexa look like she was in the ring for the 1st time ever.

I'll repeat myself, I don't need to see that match again, especially as long as Ronda is untouchable (don't need to ser at all this way tbh) and after they way the portayed Alexa in the past. Or does anybody think that there is any chance of losing the title before WM?
