This WWE star has given her take on the latest star that WWE has signed.

WWE RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss recently spoke with the Las Vegas Review Journal to promote the upcoming WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event that takes place on Sunday, February 25th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets.

Bliss is slated to defend her title in the first-ever Women’s Elimination Chamber match.

At the event, former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey is set to sign her WWE contract. Here is what Bliss had to say about Rousey:

“Nobody knew what was going on or that she was there,” Bliss said of Rousey’s Royal Rumble entrance. “She came out, and it was definitely a surprise, but I think it’s exciting that she comes to WWE because it brings a new fan base and a different dimension to WWE.”

As seen at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Wells Fargo Center on the WWE Network, Asuka won the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match.

After the match, Ronda Rousey walked out to the ring and pointed at the WrestleMania 34 sign. She tried to shake Asuka’s hand, but Asuka shoved it away. Rousey shook Stephanie McMahon’s hand at ringside.

It’s expected that Rousey with a mystery partner will take on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a mixed tag team match at WrestleMania 34, which is the biggest event of the year for the sports entertainment company.

WrestleMania 34 is set to be held on April 8, 2018, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This event airs on pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network and is the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history. Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured on the card.

Also during this interview, Bliss reflected on being called up to the main roster to the SmackDown Live brand during the WWE Draft in 2016.

“When I was brought up to SmackDown, I was one of the underwhelming draft picks,” Bliss said. “I had to make the most out of every opportunity, because a lot of times on WWE, if you don’t deliver, those opportunities don’t come back.”
