Let’s rewind to June of 2016. Imagine you’re an oddsmaker. You hear about the upcoming WWE brand split, and decide to set the odds on who the first woman will be to win both the Raw and Smackdown Women’s Championships. Do you list Alexa Bliss as the favorite?
No, probably not. But, over the course of the last year, Bliss has defied the odds and done just that.
Throughout her tenure in NXT, Bliss was cast in the shadow of Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, and Bayley. Yet, somehow, she’s made as big of an impact on the main roster as any of those women in 2017.
At what should be the height of the women’s wrestling revolution, we aren’t talking about any of the Four Horsewomen particularly crushing it. And yes, Bliss just keeps getting better and better – that’s what I call ‘underrated.’ When the focus is elsewhere, but an unrecognized individual keeps knocking it out of the park. Sure, Bliss is starting to gain a lot of traction amongst the fans, but it’s still not the recognition some of the other women get.
With that thought in mind, let’s take a look at some of the most underrated Women’s Champions in WWE’s history.
10. Alicia Fox – It’s easy to forget that Fox was a champion in 2010. Her only reign lasted just 56 days. But, since then, her in-ring abilities have improved, and she’s become more versatile as a character. Fox has retroactively earned underrated status.
