Alexa Bliss has given her take about the possible fallout from Ronda Rousey’s fake fighting comments if the former WWE Raw Women’s Champion makes a return to the company.
Back in April, while doing an interview on Steve O’s podcast, Rousey was looking back at her WWE run. This is when Rousey stated, “Like hell yeah, running out there and having like fake fights for fun is just the best thing, you know.”
At the time, Rousey received backlash from fans and wrestlers for her comments.
Bliss did an interview with the Express over in the UK where she spoke about it. She started out by talking about how she thinks it’s definitely something that hurt WWE stars because the locker room especially in the women’s division welcomed her with open arms. She recalled how they accepted her to the locker room and catered to every need that she needed.
“To kind of say what we do is fake is not fair. It’s scripted, 100 percent finish is scripted, but we tell people that. But don’t say what we do is fake because that’s just insulting.”
Bliss stated that no one really talks about it anymore after that because everyone said that their piece about it and moved on because there were other things to worry about it. She noted that the locker room didn’t really dwell on it for too long. She stated that is the ring with wrestlers because whether they get along or not, they all work and respect each other.
Bliss noted how there have been people in the locker room that she hasn’t got along with but she understands that she’s traveling with people 300 days a year.
“But you hash it out and you get over it and you work together and now we all get along great and we are all one big family. I think she may have some apologizing to do because it was disrespectful and our company is built on respect. But I don’t see why she wouldn’t be welcome with open arms.”
