Alexa Bliss and Braun Strowman’s post-match interview seemed to give away hints about a possible romantic angle between the two of them.
The Mixed Match Challenge is at its height now, with three out of its twelve episodes already aired. In the first week, Finn Balor and Sasha Banks won the match by the second round, while The Miz and Azuka followed suit last week. And just this Tuesday night, Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss won against Sami Zayn and Becky Lynch via Pinfall.
As early as now, Strowman and Bliss already appear to be one of most enjoyable pairings in the entire tournament. WWE deliberately teams up wrestlers that people would not usually associate with each other, they are one of those team-ups. Even just their difference in size is already enough to make them an adorable pair.
Like the other pairs competing in the Mixed Match Challenge, the pair posted video clips on social media, in anticipation for their match last Tuesday. The two seem to have chemistry between them, and apparently, backstage people have observed that. That is why after their victory last Tuesday, there appeared to be signs of a potential romantic angle between them.
Strowman made the first move and said that he and Bliss get along professionally and personally. He also said afterwards that he thought that Bliss was pretty cute. The ‘Five Feet of Fury’ responded to this by saying that she also found the ‘Monster among Men’ pretty cute, which prompted the crowd to start chanting “get these hands” – Strowman’s signature catchphrase. Bliss even added that she thinks they’ll go all the way, before making it clear that she meant in the MMC.
The primary romantic angle on Raw before this one was that of Nia Jax and Enzo Amore’s. However, that ‘romance’ was abruptly ended due to Amore’s release from WWE. Because of what happened this week, Bliss and Strowman’s romantic angle may be at the cusp of taking its place.
