WWE Superstar Alexa Bliss recently sat with Lilian Garcia on her new PodcastOne’s show Chasing Glory to discuss her start in the WWE, how she learned to cut promos, her struggle with anorexia throughout the years and overcoming the disease, her “bestie” Nia Jax and what’s left on her bucket list in the WWE. Highlights of the interview courtesy of Chasing Glory below

On the challenges of being accepted as a wrestler: “I didn’t wrestle before coming here. There’s a respect thing here, you know what I mean? This whole business is based on respect and because I wasn’t wrestling in the indies beforehand, it was very hard to be accepted. It was very very hard because it’s a whole culture here, you know what I mean? You have to learn and it wasn’t the fact that anyone was telling me what to do, it was I had to learn by messing up. And so because I didn’t know these girls, I didn’t know these ways, you know it was very hard to adapt, it was very difficult and I was very lonely for a really long time. Coming into NXT, Charlotte took me under her wing immediately and saw you know, how I wasn’t being accepted because of my background, they just saw me as another fitness model coming in and I had never done fitness modeling and it irked me so bad anytime anyone would call me a fitness model, you know what I mean? These girls were so good and they already knew, you know the fundamentals, they knew the psychology, they knew everything that I had just come into this, you know what I mean? And one of the people that helped me a lot through that too was Shaul Guerrero. I became really close with Shaul in NXT and she always had my back for everything and she would help me as much as she could, Charlotte helped me as much as she could and they became my really good friends from that. It was super helpful because you know I had been in a locker room with girls my entire life, but when you go somewhere that you’re not used to, it’s kind of like a little bit of a culture shock.”

On learning how to cut promos and becoming Alexa Bliss: “My mom helped me a lot. We’d have promo classes in NXT once a week and me and my mom would make it our thing to come up with a promo and it would be fun. So I was always doing these promos in front of my mom and she’d be like, ‘Hmm, that didn’t sound very convincing.’ She would just be like honest, you know what I mean? It was just like in cheer when I would have a routine, she would be like, ‘Stop, start over again, stop, start over again.’ So it’s kind of like the same kind of thing with promos and then we had Dusty (Rhodes) as a promo coach who was amazing. He was brilliant at everything he did. I started getting comfortable in promos when I was partnered with Scott Dawson in NXT. It never debuted on TV, but I was playing his girlfriend in promo classes for like a few months and that’s what really kind of got me comfortable with promos because I was out of the box, I was reenacting, I was reacting off of people, you know? When I joined Blake and Murphy, that’s when i was able to really hone in my character as to who Alexa Bliss is because I didn’t have to be in the ring and try to portray a character at the same time and worry about a match and this that and the other. But the fact that I was able to be a valet and to establish a character, work on characters, work on promos, and it helped so much, especially since we were all three really close-me, Blake, and Murphy. I was dating Murphy at the time and it was just like hanging out with friends and being able to do promos and work with people who are just your friends makes it so much easier and I think that’s kind of evolved into what I think about now in promos is like what we said, ‘You don’t just say things, you feel them.’ I’m that psycho person backstage, every promo I still have, even if it’s just two sentences or three pages, I’m backstage, I’m talking to myself, I’m pacing and just saying each thing, dissecting it, being like, ‘Okay now how would I really feel if I just said that?’ And then I say it to myself a couple of times, ‘No that doesn’t sound right.’ And I say it and I’m like, ‘Okay, that’s what clicks. Thats what how I feel.’”

On her battle with Anorexia: “It started off as simple dieting and I was trying just to watch what I was eating and then I started weighing myself and then it becomes a numbers game. Once you start weighing yourself everyday, you start seeing little pounds drop here and there and then you say, ‘Okay, what’s the next number I can get to? What’s the next number I can get to?’ And then that’s when I started researching and learning about calories and I became obsessed. I can’t even tell you, it’s crazy to talk about. I became obsessed with counting calories, obsessed with making sure that I knew exactly what was going into my body at all times. I used to make these little note cards and my mom found these note cards and that’s when she knew I had a problem. They were just little tiny cards and they had food places that I had normally ate and it would have an item from that place-let’s say it was like chicken from Burger King, it would have the amount of calories, the amount of fat, the amount of sodium and I made my own little nutritional cards. And then I would write down how much of that I would have to make a certain amount of calories that would fit my diet that day. And you know cheering, we would have practice after school and it got to the point where I would try all these little tricks just to not eat and I remember I was starving, I was so hungry and it was cheer practice and I remember chewing up a protein bar and spitting it back out just to get the flavor of food in my mouth and some kind of energy absorbed from that and I would spit it out and go train because I was so calorie conscious. I would get up a four in the morning before school, I would go and do cardio and then at school I made sure that I would only eat a Jell-O, an apple, and an egg white and that equaled to 150 calories a day and the weight just started dropping off of me like crazy. I went from 130 to 90 in six weeks. My mom was anorexic when she was younger so she knew, she knew exactly when she saw that I was like smelling food, but not eating it or if I was cutting my food up into really tiny pieces. I would have a piece of bread in the morning and I would just tear it up into tiny pieces and it would take me 30 minutes to eat that one piece of bread. I got real skinny, I was weak, I remember I turned into this completely different person because when you’re wrapped up in an eating disorder, you’re not yourself.”

On dealing with the pressure of being a WWE Superstar: “I’ve fully accepted the fact that if I’m going to do a career like this, I have to be willing to take criticism, because it’s a part of the job, you know? Any Instagram thing I post, someone’s going to say something, I know that. Anything on Twitter, someone’s going to judge whatever I do, whatever I say, whatever I look like, I understand that. But I also know that if I were to ever read into that and slip back into an eating disorder, my body will not survive another one. I’ve been told that multiple times with how my body reacts to it, I will not survive another one. If I’m a little more heavier, if I’m ever a little thicker, that’s fine because that means I’m stronger. It means I’m not worried about not waking up in the morning, I’m not worried about the amount of calories I’m eating. There’s so many more things to life to worry about than that. Like they say, ‘An eating disorder will always be in the back of your head, you’ll never get rid of it.’ Once its there, its always there. Yeah, there’s still foods I’m still afraid to. I’m terrified to eat certain foods, but I know that if I eat them, it’s going to be okay. I’m going to get through it. I’ve been very aware with the fact that being in the public eye, being on TV, being casted to Total Divas, I’m setting myself out there for criticism, but I have to know in my heart, what I know is right.”

On her friendship with Nia Jax: “She’s very loud, I’m very quiet. We balance each other out like crazy. We’ll call each other out on crap all the time, we’ll joke around nonstop. I’ve always been friends with people like Nia, I’ve always been. I love Nia, she is amazing. She’s outgoing, she’s funny, we joke around all the time, we quote Bridesmaids like its going out of style, it’s the best! We’re always making each other laugh. Like when one of us is stressed, we always try to bring the other one up, you know? We sing songs on the top of our lungs on car rides. I’m pretty sure we’re the first like real best friends that have ever been on it (Total Divas) so I think that will be very interesting. When NXT has tryouts, they have some of the talent to come and help and like work the tryout, tell people where to roll, where to do this, basically boss everyone around. I worked Nia’s tryout and so I remember I was doing cardio while they were having a lunch break and she comes up and she starts talking to me like she knew me forever, like she’s never met a stranger in her life! And I was like, “Oh, hello!” And then we’ve just become really close after that and became best friends shortly after.”

Her future goals in the WWE: “I want to be one of the longest reigning champions and for our women as a whole, even if I’m not in the match, I want us to have a Main Event at WrestleMania. That’s what I want so bad more than anything even if I’m not in the match-I mean I would love to be in the match let’s not get that twisted, but if we could have a Main Event on WrestleMania, that would be the ultimate thing.”

Alexa also discusses growing up as an athlete, her draft to the main roster, engagement with Buddy Murphy and how she utilizes her WWE platform.

    Simply in love with her.

  • Hoooshi

    I love listening to her interviews because she is so well spoken and comes across as a very nice and caring person. I just wish someone one day would ask her on her beef with Sasha. I know neither will (probably) never give us the tea, but still. I loved the part where she says she went to Sara and asked for help, she really is humble.

    Also I love Lilian as an interviewer. I listened to her interviews with Sasha, Becky and Bayley and she knows how to conduct an interview. I’m looking forward to her having other women on her new podcast in the future.

  • SaltyMcSalt

    I really like Alexa. All I’ve ever heard is nice and positive things about her from other people and fans so I don’t understand the Sasha issues but I think it’s due to what she talked about how she came in without being a wrestler and working in the indies. And I just think really people need to get over that. Trish wasn’t a wrestler when she started, she trained and became a great face of the company. Look we went through all the diva search and what not and even though they weren’t wrestlers there was so many of those girls who were passionate about the business and tried their hardest even if they weren’t good in the ring. Kelly, Bellas, Maryse, Eve, Christy, Candice, Michelle, Layla etc.

    I don’t care if she didn’t watch wrestling growing up and isn’t a wrestler beforehand. I like to see the love and passion for the business and the willingness to grow and learn to be better and she has that.

  • MK126

    I was wondering what happened to Lillians podcast. “Making Their Way To The Ring” was always good. Alexa always seems like a real genuine girl. I cant seem to see why her and Sasha have beef. One of them needs to spill tea and lets just know because these rumors arent cutting it. If its because Alexa didnt work the indies then Sasha shouldnt be friends with Charlotte either since she only started wrestling because of her brother… not because its something shes always wanted to do when she was 10 years old. Not everyone follows the same path in order to get to the WWE. It all depends on what they do when they get there that matters. She shows promise in terms of in ring skill and her character work/mic work is always on point. I think they should just sit down and hash their shit out like adults

    • Joseph

      Something happened to Alexa and Sasha that lead to their friendship ending we don’t what happened and we won’t know for a while. Sasha even say she doesn’t have a problem with girls that didn’t come from the Indies.

      • MK126

        I feel like if theres a problem between them its held on Sasha’s end. Regardless of what the issue is they keep it professional and go about their business after all is said and done

        • Joseph

          We won’t know who’s it us but they seems to get along when wrestling and have put on solid work for two people who don’t like each other.

          • MK126

            Its weird but usually those who don’t like each other put on solid matches. It allows them to be stiff with each other and make the match look better

          • Joseph

            Which is funny since Sasha and Charlotte were beating the shit out of each other and in real life they are like sisters. Pro-Wrestling is just wacky like that.

      • wwepassion

        Sasha seems to be petty TBH, she seems entitled, acts like she deserves more than others, and just seems so hard to get along with. IDK but that how I feel.

        • Xaos

          MTE, that “boss” gimmick has gone all the way to her head.

          • Winter

            Love seeing people talking shit about Sasha when they don’t even know her lol

          • #FlairfortheGold

            You should join lol it’s really fun!

          • #FlairfortheGold

            No but seriously, it’s not that we “know or don’t know her” but based on her manners towards fans, it does seem as if she is petty. Jerry lawler addressed it interestingly in a recent interview. You should check it out

          • Winter

            Girl I meet her and she was soooo nice with me. She’s petty with the stalkers, just check all the videos on YT of Sasha with kids, she event meet a girl in backstage after seeing a video of her asking for a meet.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Well obviously If she’s gonna be on camera during events, she’ll be nice and all. But like you said, you don’t know personal enough to dictate that she’s “sooooo nice”

          • Joseph

            She doesn’t have a problem with fans it just creepy stalkers at airports and hotels. CM Punk and Seth Rollins have said the same shit and nobody gave them a hard time about it. Why does Sasha get shit for saying what other have said before?

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Because I don’t think those people outside the hotel were stalking or doing any of that sort for Sasha to just walk by them and ignore them. Like Lawler said, a simple “hi, I want to eat my pizza hot, but I’ll be back” or something like that goes a long way instead of simply ignoring them

          • Winter

            She wasn’t on camera when she meet that little girl in backstage and she was nice with me so I hate when people say she’s a bad person.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            With you maybe she was nice but you don’t know that for others, do you?

          • wwepassion

            It has, it doesn’t help that her fans hyped her up so much and WWE hyped her up so much. She seems really cocky and entitled, she complains too much when she should be greatful and realizes any of those girls would gladly trade spots with her.

      • Wicked Bliss

        I think when Sasha said in Raw talk that Alexa is a fake i think she meant it. But I’m curious what did Alexa do? Is that because Alexa acted that she likes wrestling and watched wwe growing up but Sasha revealed her that she’s not (the hardy issue). If that’s the case, then its petty. Maybe Alexa was wrong she lied but that does not make her fake overall maybe shes just trying to blend in. She’s the new comer afterall and she wants to connect to other wrestlets and thats the only way she can connect. But we will never know.

        • GOD STRATUS•

          Girl raw talk was a work. Sasha really be working everyone everywhere all the time smh lol. She’s going down as the greatest kayfab still lives !

          • Wicked Bliss

            Girl, I’m just speculating. I’m not hating. No one knows the answer and Raw talk is the closest we can to know her side. Shes not having trouble with other girls who do not have prior wrestling experience but Alexa so I’m so curious what happened.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita
  • ???

    It’s true that I always say her wrestling skills are basic and not the best , but OMG she’s soooo cute and adorable in real life ???

    I hope one day she’ll get better in the ring , if she became decent in her wrestling with her perfect mic skills she’ll be unstoppable and one of the best women WWE ever had !

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    Off topic but has anyone else seen the screenshots of Mickie James and Dana Brooke for 2K18? They look so awesome! Dana has a huge improvement from last year. And I literally marked out seeing Mickie because it’s been year since she been in a game. She looks really good as well.

    • Xaos

      Trish is still wearing that same heel attire and has that same tragic hair though :/

      • SaltyMcSalt

        Yeah the Trish one is still the same but it all looks better overall. Mickie and Dana look sick though.

        • YonceLuvsDivas

          I just saw the Trish I’m irritated with same model. But I agree this years version looks better overall. The graphics saves this one.

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        I didn’t see Trish. Are you serious? I’m so pissed! How does Trish Stratus arguably one of the most hottest women ever in WWE has such an ugly video game model that keeps being used I will never know.

      • Wicked Bliss

        I want her retirement gear! Why so legends get recycled everytime.

  • Xaos

    Alexa Bliss is without a doubt the star of this generation of WWE Women’s Superstars. I can even say she will be the Trish Stratus of this era.

    No matter how many accomplishments she has achieved in WWE, she is still this sweet down to earth girl (I can’t say the same about the likes of Banks) which makes me love her even more.

    Her character as Alexa is magnificent and she’s already cemented her mark in this business and I can’t wait to follow the rest of her career. ?

    • FEELTHEGLOW
      • Xaos

        and Naomi is?

        • FEELTHEGLOW

          better than little bliss. She cant wrestle and is too afraid to take bumps.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c47eaf49d0bb6c69ade434378adcee84cd0b4b13e5d91f4c875efc199d54d2b6.gif

          • George

            Naomi sucked even more when she started don’t pretend something else ;)

          • YonceLuvsDivas

            Child bye! Go do your research Naomi was slaying the ring in FCW and to your present day. Naomi’s first divas championship against Eve slays any match Alexa has put on her rookie. Nothing toward Alexa but…. #YouTriedIt

          • Windyhawaii

            You’re not gonna get very far by making stupid ignorant comments and going off of rumors :)

          • As a fan of both girls– maybe if you stopped coming for other superstars people wouldn’t diss your girl all the time. It doesn’t need to be this girl vs. that girl.

          • ?too litty?

            THANK YOU

          • C Mack

            Tell that to the Alexa fans too! Naomi had not been brought up in here until someone compared Alexa to her!

          • This entire article is about Alexa Bliss..lol. People go off saying “she can’t wrestle & she doesn’t take bumps”… it was the “better than Bliss” comment that directly pits Naomi against Bliss.
            It just doesn’t have to be like that.

          • C Mack

            It shouldn’t be.

          • ?too litty?

            I don’t understand the point of trying to bring down other’s faves. Once you get in the ring and take a bump holler at me because there is a difference between being a hater and giving criticism. You my sir or ma’am are just simply hating. I support all the women in the division, they go out there to entertain us so be grateful.

        • Randall

          Right lmfao

      • Is WWE forgetting about Ms. Flair? Helloooo she’s the obvious choice here!

        • Flair is obviously the star of this generation. Btw..FEELTHEGLOW never once said Naomi was the star of this generation. She just laughed at the idea that Bliss was the star.

          • Not sure why you felt the need to explain that to me.. my response was pretty simple and non-confrontational…lol

          • I’m not sure. I’m almost certain I read a comment that said “but Naomi is?”

            I don’t remember it being from you though so not sure why I responded to your post ha.
            My bad dude. Ignore me

      • GOD STRATUS•

        Girl I can’t lol

    • Winter

      Let’s be honest she’s the hot topic right now… but the star of this generation? No, she’s far away of that.

    • ??LUIGI??

      ……………no

  • FEELTHEGLOW

    im sorry but she still cant wrestle.

    • George

      Says the Naomi fan lol

      • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

        Naomi can wrestle

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Naomi can wrestle sir

    • SaltyMcSalt

      The exact issue with most of the people in one comment. She can wrestle just fine. Is she the best no but she isn’t the worst but she makes up for it with great character and charisma.

      • Winter

        The main problem with Alexa is that she can’t build a program without a good wrestler.

        • Windyhawaii

          I mean who in the hell can? You’re not gonna be able to pull an entire program off without any other human being aka wrestler there as well to guide the story

          • Winter

            Lol that’s what I mean, girls like Sasha, Charlotte, Becky, Asuka can put a good feud with an average wrestler like Alexa. In the other hand Alexa needs this girls to success.

          • SaltyMcSalt

            Every one of the people who aren’t as good at wrestling need someone to build them up. If it wasn’t for Jazz, Victoria or Molly, Trish wouldn’t be as good as she is. Or Luna and Jacquelyn for Sable.

          • Winter

            And that’s exactly what I’m saying, for that reason a feud between Nia and Alexa are not gonna work.

          • SaltyMcSalt

            I never said that they should build a program with her and Nia either but what Alexa does have even though a heel is crowd support. They seem to really love Alexis.

          • Winter

            Ugh whatever I’m not gonna convince you.

          • SaltyMcSalt

            What are you trying to convince me of lol?

          • Windyhawaii

            Last sense completely lost me on grammar but no our points are definitely very different. You’re saying Alexa can’t build anything off of herself and i’m saying no one really can do that because it’s pro wrestling and everyone needs at least two to build each other up.

      • Windyhawaii

        Honestly the people the people saying she can’t are just ignorant or live in actual caves

      • ???

        Yes ! I mean I agree that she’s a bit overrated but she isn’t really “Sucks” or “Can’t Wrestle ” the girl is trying as hard as she can and maybe she’ll improve one day , but 4 title reigns in less than one year is too much even for someone like Charlotte and Sasha ..

    • Windyhawaii

      You ain’t sorry, just dumb

      • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

        Opp ended himer

    • #FlairfortheGold

      Don’t get me wrong, I love Naomi and I truly believe she is great in the ring, but she’s no Charlotte or Sasha either

    • DJ

      It’s funny how some people just can’t give credit when it’s due. Alexa is still not on the level wrestling wise that her massive push calls her to be, and Naomi is definitely better better in-ring wise than Alexa, but let’s not act like Naomi is this great wrestler either when she’s not. At her best, Naomi can’t touch any of the 4H and Asuka.

  • Winter

    This post is about Alexa and the half of the comments are about Sasha lol

    • George

      annoying fanbase lol

  • vdcvt

    Definitely one of my favourites.
    I feel like this is one of Alexa’s most in-depth interviews. She’s a lot of the topics here in the past, but here she’s given a lot more detail.
    It’s crazy to me how far she’s come, and I remember watching those snippets of her promo classes with Scott Dawson and Christina Vargas haha. Got hooked onto her from the get go.
    And her battle with anorexia, it sounds overwhelming what she went through, but I’m so inspired by Alexa’s strength of character there especially how she has such as positive outlook now

  • Don ?

    “I didn’t wrestle before coming here. There’s a respect thing here, you know what I mean? This whole business is based on respect and because I wasn’t wrestling in the indies beforehand, it was very hard to be accepted.”

    That sounds so annoying to deal with. I kind of understand where Superstars who came from the independent circuit are coming from, but I personally wouldn’t ostracize someone who received a free pass into the WWE. It’s almost a “Don’t hate the player, hate the game” scenario. As long as they were respectful to their co-workers and give 100% into learning the craft I could care less if they weaseled their way into the business. A lot of professions are like that.

  • DayOneISH!

    There putting too much on Alexas plate for her to handle.Shes only been on the main roster for what a year and a half now and she’s already a 4 time women’s champion.

    Shes like Nikki Bella to me when it comes to her booking OK in the ring but her accolades shouldn’t be as big as it should be(In ring wise not total divas,etc) especially only a year and half into her career. Charlotte I can understand,Sasha Banks I can understand,Asuka I can Understand But Alexa?

    Not to mention her character is stale I get it Harley Quinn yeah she got the look down but not the Harley Quinn personality to go with it.I saw the no mercy promo why can’t she wear a mask? Why couldn’t Blake and Murphy join her as her back up they worked well together in NXT.So many things they could do with bliss but it is what it is.

    • Joseph

      Cause Asuka wears a mask to the ring. Alexa can wear face paint.

  • Wicked Bliss

    “I didn’t wrestle before coming here. There’s a respect thing here, you know what I mean? This whole business is based on respect and because I wasn’t wrestling in the indies beforehand, it was very hard to be accepted. It was very very hard because it’s a whole culture here, you know what I mean? …”

    Sounds like why some wrestlers don’t like her. And its a bit unfair, tho I get the point of earning the respect but it should not be a reason to hate her and isolate her (I hate that feeling) specially that she’s trying.

    I love how humble Alexa is. She knows that she started with nothing and she knows that she still needs to improve and to earn other’s respect. She seems cares about the women wrestling even if she’s not part of her dream match. She may not be the best wrestler but she’s not the worst as the other claims her to be. Tho, she’s really getting way too much for a newcomer – but hey, its WWE’s fault not her.

    • Joseph

      Yeah but it isn’t hard to win over the other wrestler and gain their respect.

      • #FlairfortheGold

        You don’t know that. You’re not backstage with the WWE superstars to know that

        • Joseph

          This isn’t just a wrestling thing its a life thing. When you start a new job you have to earn the respect of your follow coworkers otherwise nobody wants to work with you.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Yea but the difference being that some train years for this and sacrifice the entirety of their lives for wrestling. The same isn’t said for other regular jobs

  • YonceLuvsDivas
    • Randall

      I mean neither one of them really resemble Trish imo lol…but that one picture of Mandy did remind me of Trish from 2000.

    • ???

      BOTH !!
      but in terms of look Many wins !!

    • GOD STRATUS•

      We’re cutting them both …..

    • Dreignz

      Mandy ! Alexa Bliss sounds like Trish sometimes but she looks like a small Kelly Kelly

  • wysna

    I actually really like her. I think she has a lot of potential. People complain about her wrestling but I honestly don’t think she’s half as bad as they make her out to be. The only thing I really dislike about her is her branding: “the Goddess.” Girl, how??? She’s pretty but she’s not really what you would traditionally imagine when you think Goddess. I’d rather that she stick to being “the 5 foot fury”. That’s at least more creative and it fits the bratty and shrill way she goes about her business as a heel. As a face, it’ll also work for her not just because of her size but the way she makes it seem like an advantage because of her style as a wrestler. The Goddess is just so unrelated as far as casual references are concerned. I want her branding to be as good as Sasha’s and Charlotte’s because I do see her being with this company for a long LONG time.

  • Mr. Giem

    Haven’t heard the full podcast yet but I will asap. Just like the one she did with Jericho, she sounds like a really nice, down to earth and genuine person, she has achieved a lot in the WWE and one would think that that success would have gone to her head but that’s not the case and that’s one of the reason why she’s my fave, she still tries a lot and no matter how much crap she gets from some people, she keeps improving.

    I remember her first match on NXT, I was instantly hooked. She showed so much promise and I knew she was gonna be huge but back then it seemed like it was taking her too long to get recognized, that’s why I’m genuinely happy for what she’s getting, yeah 4 title reigns in a year is a lot but you better get used to it ’cause by the end of her career she’s gonna achieve a lot more and I will be so proud of her.

  • the interview was a good read and i love bliss and i hope we get to see her and the other female superstars in a mania main event one day

  • Jesus’s brother

    Y’all need to stop saying Alexa is afraid to take bumps… and you also need to stop saying she can’t wrestle lol have you seen the matches of Alexa when she was a face? Her move set is completely different and that is how it should be! If Alexa was face she would be a better high flyer than Naomi for sure!

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Not this reach.. she wouldn’t be a better high flyer than Naomi. You’re just a Naomi hater and want to praise Alexa for some reason. What highflying moves did Alexa do as face? I’ll wait.

      • Jesus’s brother

        450º Splash is enough to end Naomi LOOL

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          450 splash? She hasn’t done that, lol. The only high flying move of hers is the Twisted Bliss and that was her finisher so next. Naomi does a variety of high flying moves and she’s athletic as hell. Many wrestlers has labeled her as the most athletic too so AGAIN… next.

          • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

            Yas make them find them receipts

          • ?too litty?

            She definitely has done the 450 splash. No hate, just truth. I love both Naomi and Alexa. I don’t see why we have to compare them, they have two different wrestling types.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            I don’t recall. I’m not comparing them the other was comparing them and I came for them. They do have different wrestling types so I don’t see how Alexa would be more athletic than Naomi if that’s not her wrestling style, lmfao.

          • ?too litty?

            When she was face she did more athletic moves, but still they were completely different even then.

          • Jesus’s brother

            Charlotte IS the most athletic, Naomi has yet to do a corkscrew moonsault lool
            Alexa if she wanted, she would do more

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            Again what does doing a certain move has to do with athletic??? I’m sure there’s moves Naomi has done that Charlotte hasn’t either. And Naomi if she wanted, she would do more so what’s your fucking point? You’re just being an extra mess.

          • Jesus’s brother

            Hmmmm lool

          • C Mack

            You’re clearly trying to antagonize ppl. Why did you have to bring up Naomi just to show support for Alexa?

          • It

            Because Alexa is clearly better

          • C Mack

            Better than you

          • It

            Oooohhhhh Strong words

          • C Mack

            Lol I tried for a cute lil comeback

        • Mike

          Naomi can do the 450 splash but wwe officials backstage weren’t letting her do it if my memory servee correct (this was reported some time ago lol)

      • Jesus’s brother


        Ended Naomi with this one LOL
        Naomi will never

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          What’s this? You call this highflying?… got to go. You calling this a highflying move basically just proved my point earlier, people want to devalue everything Naomi does to praise someone else and it’s sad.

          • Jesus’s brother

            You guys do the same with Bliss… she can take bumps and can wrestle, but IWC is full of wrestlers to judge her and say she doesnt

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            I don’t know why y’all get pressed over us saying she didn’t take bumps back then because she didn’t. That was a fact, why so mad? Now the ones who’s saying she can’t wrestle are reaching, sure. But don’t attack them for it when you do the same with someone you hate, I do it sometimes I can admit but you do it all the time and it’s annoying. Just say you hate Naomi just because for no reason and move on since that’s basically what you’re always showing.

          • Jesus’s brother

            Pressed

          • Shan

            For the love of peace this person is a troll. Ignore them. Block them. If no one replies they’ll just disappear. They have no idea what they’re talking about as seen by their juvenile replies and horrible ‘proof’.

    • A?.

      The only reason they say she can’t wrestle is because of a few mistakes, but if that’s the case then no one can wrestle. They’re pathetic, but whatever makes them sleep at night.

      • Randall

        I honestly rarely see her botch moves.

  • She’s a great girl, super sweet personality and a true professional. She’s in the zone when she’s on TV, I definitely see why they push her like they do.

  • Aye Mate

    I have always maintained that it matters not how you get into wrestling, it’s where you end up. We live and die by the labels created by internet culture in wrestling, but even as a supposed smark I have no bones about admitting that some of the female performers I’ve valued most in WWE emerged from the Diva Search. And Alexa’s compelling acting skills make her a viable asset to whichever division she’s involved in, regardless if she’s on the same level as other wrestlers or not. I just wish she was booked more evenly. But she has a great attitude and it’s always nice to see someone find success after overcoming personal turmoil.

  • Holy molly! I thought she didn’t knew Shaul Guerrero/Raquel diaz, such a great personality and lovely athlete.

  • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

    Of course people will bring in the negativity when this interview was actually very positive. How can people ignore that Alexa Bliss is a very sweet and humble girl?
    Loved the interview, hopefully she can one day talk about her relationship with Paige, Dana, Summer, Foxy, Maryse, Mickie, etc

  • A?.

    The modeling thing is so true, not only inside the WWE but also outside between the fans. Nowadays we are in a new era where most of the girls have a lot of experience, which is amazing, but they also underestimate or shame the model girls or the ones who don’t have any wrestling background. Why? They can learn, we all learn in our lives and just because they don’t have any background doesn’t mean they can’t be passionate about it. (Even though there have been a few cases but it’s not always like that). I’m not saying they should hire all models, but the variety is needed, most of those girls have way more charisma than some indie girls, and y’all need to understand that not everything is about WRESTLING, it’s about entertainment as well.

  • Super Mateo

    “You know what I mean?” I can’t even imagine listening to the whole interview if she said this over and over, you know what I mean?

  • Shan

    I don’t get it. From everything I’ve read I should like her. She seems like a really nice person; but I just cannot connect with her at all. And it’s weird because the first time I saw her and how short she was I was like: “hell yeah! Short women of the world unite”. And then her mic skills were amazing and I loved it. Now when ever I see/ hear about her I just roll my eyes and move on.
