How Alexa Bliss Recovery Is Going?
In an update on Bliss’ status, Bryan Alvarez noted on Wrestling Observer Live that there’s been talk of Bliss staying out of action until the 2019 Royal Rumble pay-per-view in late January. This has not been confirmed and should be taken as a rumor for now.
Alvarez also revealed that Bliss has been training in a special ring at the WWE Performance Center. We noted earlier that Bliss finally returned to in-ring training at the Performance Center last week after being out for a while with concussion issues. It was also reported that medical staff were watching closely as Bliss took light bumps at the Performance Center. Bliss was actually taking much lighter bumps as she was working out in a special ring that is basically a crash pad with ring ropes.
Dubbed the “High Flyer” ring, it was built with a crash pad that’s almost 1 foot thick, which helps absorb the impact as talents are doing their bumps. The ring allows talents to work on their high-risk moves without the fear of getting hurt. The crash pad ring uses material similar to pads used on action movie sets and it was inspired by the kids foam ring that is used at the WrestleMania Axxess events.
Bliss was training in this crash pad ring so they could make sure she’s able to take the softer bumps without the concussion symptoms getting worse.
Alexa Bliss might be back in the late January, that means the time around Royal Rumble 2019. She could help to build Women’s Royal Rumble or will be in the Royal Rumble, late one is better and is expected.
