What’s Next for Alexa Bliss With the Absence of “The Fiend” From Raw?

Published 01/04/2021, 12:47 AM EST


The WWE Universe was shocked by Randy Orton’s remorseless and psychopathic action on the final Raw episode of 2020. ‘The Viper’, after setting fire to “The Fiend” at TLC, also possibly set fire to Alexa Bliss after she questioned his capabilities.

The reason that the word ‘possibly’ is used is that the show ended on a cliffhanger with Randy Orton holding a matchstick and smiling. Fans were left assuming what happened to Bliss, but there can only be one thing.

Alexa Bliss may have joined “The Fiend” in hell after Orton burned her. However, fans eagerly wait to see what happens next. 

Orton has seemingly ended the storyline by incinerating his foes, but it definitely isn’t the end. “The Fiend” will return but the question is- will he return with Alexa Bliss? 

Fans have been complaining about WWE Creative’s decision to include Bliss as a side character in the Orton-Fiend storyline. The main point behind the argument is that Bliss is being deprived of in-ring work in her prime.

While she has adapted extremely well to the entire role, Alexa Bliss would do much better on the Raw roster as a fighting Superstar. Burning Alexa Bliss could be the bitter end of her dark role at the side of “The Fiend”.

Alexa Bliss could return to her normal persona

This would be an effective way of writing ‘The Goddess’ of the storyline. Angered by the death of his partner, “The Fiend” would bring new life to his storyline against Randy Orton. It would also unleash a new side of Orton’s evil who will meet the true monstrosity in Bray Wyatt.

Alexa Bliss could make her big return at Royal Rumble that is fast approaching. She will probably be on hiatus till then and may come back to win the match. 

In doing so, Raw Women’s Champion Asuka will finally have a worthy opponent. Asuka has pretty much been the undisputed champion for the last 6 months on Raw.

Charlotte’s return to team up with her means that a feud won’t go down between them at least for the next few months. Alexa Bliss could be the fresh new Champion that Raw desperately needs.
