Note: This is a story I wrote for Champions.co
It didn’t take long for former Smackdown women’s champion Alexa Bliss to assert herself as one of Raw’s top women.
Bliss won a Fatal Fourway match against Sasha Banks, Mickie James and Nia Jax to become the No. 1 contender for the Raw women’s championship, currently held by Bayley. The two will clash on April 30 at Payback.
Bliss made her Raw debut last week as a part of the “Superstar Shakeup” to a star’s welcome. It wasn’t a surprise since there were reports that Bliss would be switching brands with Charlotte Flair. This is a great opportunity for the former Smackdown women’s champion to compete on another – and in some people’s opinion a bigger – stage.

Alexa Bliss channels her inner Freddy Krueger for the WWE women’s Halloween photo shoot. If you followed her NXT days, you probably saw this look when she was managing Blake and Murphy. It was kind of the beginning of Bliss’ heel character. What I enjoyed more than the Krueger-inspired attire, was the look in her eyes when she’d get pissed. During her match with Tessa Blanchard, she screamed “Welcome to NXT Tessa!” which could be seen as a homage to Freddy’s “Welcome to Prime Time Bitch!” from Nightmare on Elm Street 3.
I like that she brought the look back for the shoot.
Bliss is killing it on Smackdown.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and it’s always cool to see wrestlers get into the spirit. Here, Smackdown’s Alexa Bliss transforms into Goldust. Bliss makes a really good Goldust. Many commenters also noted how beautiful she is without makeup and I concur.
