“I plan on coming back pretty soon,” Bliss said in a fan-driven Q&A at the convention. “WWE is very careful with us when it comes to concussions and any injury…there’s hope for me getting back in the ring relatively soon.”
Bliss, a former five-time Women’s Champion, has been out of action since late October of 2018 dealing with concussions, and she told Lillian Garcia, the panel’s moderator, that she believes it was an aggravation of a previous concussion that’s kept her sidelined for the last few months.
“It was one that happened, then I went back too soon and aggravated it,” Bliss said.
Concussions are serious business and head injuries have become the talk of the sports world over the last couple of years. With that in mind, WWE has plenty of reasons to take the utmost caution with Bliss as she prepares to get back in the ring.
“Everybody is being cautious, it’s the brain, you only get one, can’t trade it out for another,” Bliss said during the panel.
In the meantime, WWE hasn’t allowed the injuries to keep one of their most polished overall performers off of the television screens of fans.
Since her last match, Bliss was ordained as the new head of the Women’s Division on Monday Night RAW, much to the chagrin of the other female superstars whom she now oversees.
In addition, this past Monday night’s edition of RAW saw the premiere of Bliss’ new talk show, A Moment Of Bliss, with her first guest being Ronda Rousey. The segment was used as a vehicle to crown a new No. 1 Contender for the RAW Women’s Championship, so it’s clear that the talk show will carry some significant importance going forward, even after Bliss makes a return to the ring.
