The finish of the women's Elimination Chamber match in Saudi Arabia was originally going to involve a double-pin scenario with Bianca Belair and Alexa Bliss. This was Bliss' first match back since September and WWE officials wanted to keep her looking strong.

According to PW Insider, the original idea had Belair and Bliss covering each other and both being pinned at the same time. At the very last second, Belair was to get her shoulder up, earning her the victory. Instead, the finish was changed to just have Belair give Bliss her finisher and get the 1-2-3.

Bliss broke character following the Elimination Chamber match as well. Scroll down to reveal what she did.

Alexa Bliss' character is a little morbid and wacky these days. Her character is something of a Chucky meets the Fiend gimmick. Following the Elimination Chamber, however, Bliss was overwhelmed with the positive response to her return. She broke character on social media and posted a thank you to the fans.
