Alexa Bliss shares details on her experience in Saudi Arabia

Former WWE Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss recently spoke with Scott Fishman of TV Insider to talk about a wide range of pro wrestling related topics.

During the interview, Bliss shared her experience while traveling over to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for the WWE Super ShowDown pay-per-view event earlier this month that was held at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium on the WWE Network.

WWE had Bliss and Natalya travel to the country in hopes of holding the first-ever women’s match there. However, those plans were nixed by the government due to their culture.

Bliss shared her positive experience and hope to be able to compete in the country in the near future.

“I didn’t really know what to expect in Saudi Arabia,” Bliss said. “I knew it wasn’t going to be like Abu Dhabi. It’s very interesting to see how everything is over there. We had fun. When Nattie and I got to interact with kids in the hospital, they knew who we were. They know the product. The show itself was awesome. It was actually a really good experience.

“Every woman Natalya and I spoke to were super welcoming and asking us how we liked Jeddah. They said whatever they could do to make our stay better to let them know. Women there were just so excited to meet us. We had so many come up to us thanking us for coming and how they really hope to see a match. I think it’s definitely within reach. Everyone seems to be on board with us having match there.”
