She took to social media to post a broken heart emoji, and it doesn’t require further explanation. It is truly heartbreaking news considering some of the released Superstars were actually actively working on WWE Television such as Keith Lee and Nia Jax.

Now, all the released Superstars will have to serve the non-compete clause. So for now, all of them will not be able to get inside the ring with another promotion until this clause ends.

Is Alexa Bliss safe?

So far, there is nothing going on that would indicate Bliss is unsafe. She’s changed her character, she’s changed the way she presents herself, introduced Lilly Doll (which is a bestseller on the WWE Shop), and is one of the popular Superstars on the women’s roster.

However, she’s been away from the ring for a while. Reportedly, she’s away from the ring because of surgery, but that wouldn’t stop the company from releasing her if required.
