Ranking The 5 Greatest Alexa Bliss Matches Of All Time
Over the course of a couple of years on the main roster, Alexa Bliss has truly broken through as one of the biggest Superstars in the WWE Universe. Without a doubt one of the most undervalued performers in all of professional wrestling and sports-entertainment; Bliss is an enigma, a glittering diamond in today's pro-wrestling landscape, given her sterling depiction of the on-screen character that is "The Goddess of WWE".
Well, as the saying goes--there are two sides to every coin--And Bliss, as much as she's beloved to many in the WWE Universe, has her fair share of detractors as well. It's become a rather common theme for Bliss' critics--who generally find it nigh impossible to point out flaws in her promo skills--to claim that she's not on the level of say a Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair or a Sasha Banks in the wrestling department.

Much like Ric Flair and several other professional wrestling legends of the past have been known to do, Bliss and James engaged in a back-and-forth thriller of a match with limb-specific attacks at TLC last year. With the RAW Women's title at stake, defending champion Alexa Bliss chose to adopt a limb-specific attack strategy akin to how Flair used to--systematically breaking down her opponent before delivering the final blow.
The match lasted 11:25 minutes, and witnessed several shifts of momentum, with the most memorable among them being Bliss snapping her opponent down by pulling James' hair, only for the latter to keep kipping up and subsequently down Little Miss Bliss. Moreover, The Goddess of WWE would time and again steer the momentum in her favor, by attacking James' arm...In the end, Bliss drove James into the second turnbuckle, and then laid her out with a DDT for the pinfall--thereby successfully defending her title...
