Former WWE women’s champion Alexa Bliss will no longer compete at this weekend’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view with a replacement to be named ahead of the event.
WWE officials announced the news on Thursday.
“Alexa Bliss is not medically cleared to compete at WWE Money in the Bank this Sunday, and has been removed from the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match,” WWE officials said in a statement. “A suitable replacement for Alexa will be announced.”
Bliss has largely been out of action outside of a few matches since this past October due to concussion protocol at WWE.
With her in-ring career delayed, Bliss began appearing on television in a segment called ‘A Moment of Bliss’ on Monday Night Raw while waiting to get cleared to return to action.,
She participated in the Royal Rumble back in January and then made a couple of appearances in matches on television more recently but her schedule has been drastically reduced.
Now it appears Bliss is back on the sidelines, although the statement from WWE doesn’t clarify if this is once again due to the concussion issue she was facing previously.
The Money in the Bank Ladder match this weekend will see four women’s stars from RAW and four women’s stars from Smackdown Live compete for the contract for a title match at any time in the future.
Bliss is a past winner of the Money in the Bank ladder match and she went onto capture the title previously. Unfortunately it appears Bliss will have to wait for her chance to return to action now that she has been deemed medically unfit to compete.
Stay tuned on information regarding her replacement in the Money in the Bank ladder match as soon as the news becomes available.
