Alexa Bliss was one of the most active members on the women’s roster after having already won the Money In The Bank, SmackDown and the RAW Women’s Championship along with the tag-team titles. Her run hit a halt when she was diagnosed with her first concussion, the issue which kept on recurring forced her to miss matches at Evolution, WrestleMania 35 and Money In The Bank.
In an interview with Sky Sports, Bliss spoke about the concussions that she suffered and held high praise for the WWE doctors that helped with her diagnosis and recovery. She said:
“Once you have a concussion it’s easier to get re-concussed and I found that out very clearly. It the brain, it’s not like an ankle you can tape up and you know the time frame that it’s going to heal – the brain is a completely different thing. It is definitely something that I am more cautions of but WWE set me up with the best doctors possible, the best neurologists, physiologists and everyone basically had their hands in on my brain.
I feel a lot better now with the information and the education I was given when it comes to concussions because of what WWE provided for us and I feel a lot better about being in the ring and it makes me appreciate the time in the ring a lot more than maybe I did before.”
