Alexa Bliss has a new role on television, overseeing the Raw women’s division.

Baron Corbin, who is now calling himself the General Manager-Elect of Raw, ran into Bliss backstage. After she put him over and asked if she could do anything for him, Corbin offered her a chance to oversee the entire Raw women’s division.

She accepted the role, later hosting a open forum with Sasha Banks and Bayley. That ended when Mickie James, Alicia Fox and Dana Brooke jumped them. Banks and Bayley managed to dispatch them, standing all.

Bliss has been out of action since 10/20 with a concussion. In the most recent issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer wrote that Bliss has suffered multiple concussions recently, which is a cause for concern. She has also reportedly been unable to pass Impact testing, which would allow her to return to the ring.

Corbin named himself the General Manager-Elect in the first segment of the show after saying that while the match between him and Braun Strowman for TLC is still on, Strowman won’t be able to compete due to elbow surgery. It was also mentioned in last week’s Observer Newsletter that there had been discussion of Bliss in the General Manager spot if Corbin was removed.
