Judging by their post-match interview this week it appears that we may be on the cusp of a romantic angle between Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss.
The Mixed Match Challenge is well and truly in full swing now with three of the twelve episodes are already wrapped up. In week one Finn Balor and Sasha Banks booked their place in the second round, then last week The Miz and Asuka followed suit, and this past Tuesday night Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss made it three wins in three for Raw.
Strowman and Bliss are already proving to be one of the most entertaining pairings in the whole tournament. WWE has purposefully put wrestlers together that you wouldn't normally associate with one another and Five Feet of Fury and The Monster Among Men are one of those pairings. Their size difference alone makes them an endearing tandem.
In the build to their match this past Tuesday, the two of them posted videos to social media like many of the other teams competing in the MMC. They seem to have a chemistry and clearly people backstage at WWE have picked up on that. That's why following their win on Tuesday night, we seemed to be witnessing the beginnings of a possible romantic angle between the two of them.
Strowman took the first step by saying that he and Bliss get on both professionally and personally, before adding that his tag partner is also pretty cute. Bliss replied in kind by saying that she thinks Raw's Resident Monster is pretty cute too as the crowd began to chant Strowman's signature catchphrase "get these hands." The big man was then given reason to blush as Bliss said she thinks they will go all the way, then clarifying that she meant in the Mixed Match Challenge.
Prior to this one, the main romantic angle on Raw was the one between Nia Jax and Enzo Amore. That angle came to an abrupt end of course following Amore's release from the company and judging by what took place this week the one between Strowman and Bliss may be about to take its place. The Monster Among Men is a firm fan favorite with the WWE Universe, perhaps this is a way of turning WWE's resident Goddess into a babyface alongside him.
