Alexa Bliss recaptured the Raw Women's Championship at Money in the Bank last weekend after she won the Women's Money in the Bank ladder match and cashed in the contract later on in the event.

Little Miss Bliss interfered in the Raw Women's title match between former champion Nia Jax and Ronda Rousey, attacking both of them with her Money in the Bank briefcase before cashing in and winning the Raw Women's title from Jax.

This decision to cash in made Bliss the first woman, and the third superstar overall, to cash-in the Money in the Bank contract on the same night as winning it. This also reignited her rivalry with Nia Jax, who she lost the Raw Women's title to back at WrestleMania 34. They're set to meet in the ring again at Extreme Rules.

Bliss' cash in at Money in the Bank also cost Rousey her shot at the Raw Women's title. Rowdy took out her anger on the new Raw Women's Champion the following night on Monday Night Raw and, as a result, was handed a 30-day suspension by general manager Kurt Angle.

It's widely expected by many WWE fans that Bliss and Rousey will meet again in the ring in the not so distant future. A UFC star recently tweeted at Alexa to offer training to the Raw Women's Champion in her likely clash vs the former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion.


UFC Women's Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg tweeted out to Bliss and said: "Let me know # @AlexaBliss_WWE if you need help training Judo takedown and armbar defense!"

Bliss replied: "Thanks ! I’ll let you know #ChampsHelpingChamps"

This isn't the only time which Cyborg has got herself involved in the WWE on social media, as last summer, the UFC Women's Featherweight Champion was involved in a Twitter feud with Becky Lynch which many thought would lead to a SummerSlam match, but it ultimately didn't.

Cyborg also has her history with Rousey, as for years they were both the biggest names in women's MMA and fans desperately wanted them to meet inside the Octagon in UFC, but it never happened. Having them finally meet inside a WWE ring would be huge for WWE.

It, therefore, wouldn't be surprising to see Bliss and Cyborg's relationship blossom over the next few weeks in preparation for something big at this year's SummerSlam, if WWE was to go down that path.
