It’s a serious problem. There are a lot of stories on any given edition of Monday Night Raw but sometimes there is a reason that a story does not get any attention. It might be due to some creative issues or it might be due to someone involved with the show. The latter might have been the case this week, as a prominent name on Monday Night Raw was not around, and we might know why.

According to, Alexa Bliss was backstage at this week’s Monday Night Raw, though she did not appear on the show. Earlier in the day, Bliss sent out a message on Instagram asking if anyone knew of a local veterinarian who treated pigs, as her pet pig Larry Steve is unable to move or walk and is in pain. It is NOT confirmed that this is the reason Bliss was not on the show, though it was implied that she interfered in the main event, as fire shot up to blind Reginald, as was the case in the previous week’s match.

Bliss certainly seems to love her pig. Check out some of the things she has said about it before:

Opinion: I’m not sure if this is the reason why Bliss was not on the show, but maybe this is why WWE did not use her. If (and that is a big if) that is why WWE chose not to use her, it is nice to see WWE giving her a break. Having a sick pet can be devastating and it might mess with what Bliss was going to be able to do. There is no reason to force her out there when she is incapable of doing so as well as she could, so if (again, if) this is the case, this was the right way to go.

What do you think of Bliss? What is next for her? Let us know in the comments below.
