Bliss previously stated that she plans on getting back to working out one month post-birth. 

Five-time WWE Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss is expecting a baby girl with her husband Ryan Cabrera. Bliss is due in December. 

The last time Bliss wrestled was at the 2023 Royal Rumble Premium Live Event where she challenged for the Raw Women’s Championship. In a new interview with The Messenger, Bliss expressed that time away from WWE TV is good and gives people time to miss her. 

She stated that there’s been multiple versions of her on-screen character and they’ve all done well in merchandise sales. When it comes to her work in WWE, Bliss is not looking to move backwards. 

Time away is always a good thing. When it comes to WWE, time away and reinventing a character and evolving yourself is the key to career longevity at WWE. So I always say, time away is such a good thing because it gives people the time to miss you. 

When you’re being seen on WWE three or four times an episode, you don’t really have anywhere to go with your character. So whenever you take time off, it’s always a good time to evolve and to keep going. And I’ve already been probably six or seven different versions of myself. And each time it’s done well with merchandise sales, with bookings and all that stuff. So I don’t really like to go backwards with my work. I always like to go forward.

WWE opted to extend Alexa Bliss’ contract. She’s been with the company since 2013.
