Alexa Bliss Not Cleared For Return?

We noted before how Mark Henry while appearing on Busted Open Radio had said that the former Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss has been cleared for an in-ring return.

However, Dave Meltzer opposed these comments on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio and claimed that Bliss has only been approved for light activity under medical supervision.

WWE has been trying to keep Bliss on TV without taking any bumps in recent weeks, by making her the in charge of the Women’s Division. So it makes more sense if Alexa has not been cleared. We’ll keep you posted on her status.

Next Challenger For Cruiserweight Title

205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick announced via the following video that Cedric Alexander is the new #1 contender and the next challenger for Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy:

Cedric has been rewarded this title shot after he defeated the previously-undefeated Lio Rush in a recent bout and also pinned Murphy in a tag match.

No word yet on when Alexander will be getting his title match against the Cruiserweight Champion. Though the most likely destination for it is the upcoming TLC PPV. You can check out an updated match card for the event here.
