Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost will appear as correspondents at WrestleMania 35 in New Jersey this April, but they won’t be hosting; that job will go to Alexa Bliss, who announced herself as the official “host” of the event during A Moment Of Bliss on Monday Night Raw.
Bliss put this year’s host over past hosts like Kim Kardashian (“this year’s host is bigger than any reality show”), The Rock (“this person is way more electrifying”) and New Day (“this year’s host has way more power of positivity”) before throwing to a “surprising” announcement video for herself. No mention of the WrestleMania 30 host, thank goodness. You can watch the announcement clip below.
The last hosts (The New Day) showed up to the event dressed as Final Fantasy characters, so maybe we’ll get some Alexa Bliss WrestleMania cosplay. Maybe something from the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection?
Regardless, it’s good to see Bliss getting a performing role in the show if her return to an in-ring career is still stalling due to lingering injuries. Hopefully she’ll get to return soon, and show off some of those moves she’s been working on at the Performance Center with Chikara impresario Mike Quackenbush.
