When Mark Henry appeared on Busted Open Radio on Tuesday, he claimed Alexa Bliss, The Goddess, was cleared to wrestle again. Unfortunately, this might be a false statement. A recent report by Dave Meltzer and F4WOnline claims she is not yet medically cleared for in-ring action.
Limited Clearance Versus Full Medical Clearance
According to the latest online reports, Alexa Bliss has received limited clearance. She can do some physical activity, but she is not able to take the full physical impact of full-time wrestling.
Even though Alexa plays a somewhat active role on WWE television at this point, reports state that she is being monitored by the WWE medical staff while training at the performance center.
Struggling with Concussion Symptoms
Alexa Bliss has been away from in-ring competition because she’d suffered several concussions over a short period of time.
During the interview with Busted Open Radio, Mark Henry stated he had a conversation with Alexa about her concussion symptoms.
“We sat and talked for about 15-20 minutes,” Henry recalled, “And she was like, ‘Yeah, I was really bad off. I couldn’t remember where I was, I couldn’t remember what I was doing in the city.’ We were flying from London to Switzerland and she said, ‘I couldn’t remember what flight or anything. I had to rely one everyone else telling me what to do. I couldn’t stand up straight, I had vertigo.’ She said she was in a bad way, and then she came back too soon, banged her head again, and really was in a bad place.” – Mark Henry
Unfortunately, concussion problems are far from uncommon in the world of professional wrestling. Neck and head injuries are frightfully common, just think about Edge, Paige, and even Daniel Bryan. While Daniel was able to get back into the ring, Paige’s and Edge’s injuries were career-ending.
When it was revealed Alexa suffered multiple concussions, her fans panicked as they thought she could have been suffering from a career-ending injury. Fortunately, it seems now that she will be making a full recovery.
