Alexa Bliss

WWE Monday Night RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss recently did an interview with ESPN to talk about several professional wrestling topics. “Little Miss Bliss” discussed getting the idea to act like a brat on WWE TV, being the complete opposite of her gimmick in real life, and going away from her fairy gimmick in NXT. You can check out the highlights here below:

Getting the idea act like a brat on WWE TV:

“So I was at the airport and this little kid would not go through security and just threw a fit in the middle of the floor and did the whole thing with shaking his legs and arms. His parents were just standing there looking like, ‘We don’t know what to do!’ They were annoyed, and I was like, ‘Man, that’s a really bratty thing to do and I’m going to do it.'”

Being the complete opposite of her gimmick in real life:

“When it comes to the Alexa Bliss character, everyone says the character has to be an extension of yourself turned up. But I feel like I am the complete opposite of Alexa Bliss. When I came up with the Alexa Bliss character, I wanted to be the girl that everyone knew. There was always that girl in high school who was mean to everybody. She was mean and rude but everyone still voted for her to be homecoming queen. That girl. And I wanted to portray that girl. Because I knew that girl in high school. I knew girls like that.”

Getting away from her fairy gimmick in NXT:

“When I first joined with Murphy, I had to make a character change. I wasn’t confident in myself about that at all, but I remember my mom telling me that once something clicks with me … I had to … come in and kick the door down and let everyone know who I am.”
