As WWE fans eagerly await the upcoming Royal Rumble PLE event in Tampa, Florida, the anticipation for the marquee matches, especially the Women’s Royal Rumble, has been met with uncertainty.

The Women’s Royal Rumble match, scheduled for this Saturday, currently boasts only six confirmed participants, leaving 24 spots wide open for speculation and surprise entrants. Among the missing contenders, one name that stands out is Alexa Bliss, the former WWE Women’s Champion.

Alexa Bliss has been conspicuously absent from the wrestling scene since 2023. The reason behind her hiatus? Maternity leave. Bliss, who welcomed her first child into the world in November, took a well-deserved break from the squared circle to embrace the joys of motherhood. While fans have missed her in-ring presence, her absence was understandably expected.

However, wrestling fans have been buzzing with hope that a surprise return could be on the horizon. The reason for this optimism stems from the fact that Alexa Bliss calls Florida her home. As the Royal Rumble PLE event takes place in Tampa, where she resides, some believe that she might make a last-second addition to the Women’s Royal Rumble match.


Such a return would mark a full-circle moment for Bliss. Her last match to date was at the Royal Rumble PLE event in 2023, where she challenged Bianca Belair for the WWE Raw Women’s Title. Despite not winning the championship that night, Bliss’s appearance was memorable, and fans have been eagerly waiting for her to make a comeback ever since.

While there is no official confirmation of Alexa Bliss’s participation in the Royal Rumble PLE event, the speculation alone has generated significant excitement among wrestling fans. Whether she decides to make her return this Saturday or continues to enjoy her well-deserved time away from the spotlight, one thing is certain: Alexa Bliss’s presence in the WWE is deeply missed, and fans will be cheering for her whenever she chooses to make her comeback.
