To help promote WWE’s launch of 2K18 for Nintendo Switch, Raw Superstar Alexa Bliss recently spoke with Miami Herald to discuss the newest additions to the Raw Women’s Division, a positivity to social media and reveals her dream tag team match. Highlights of the interview below.

Using social media to in a positive matter: “I feel like social media is a great platform for that. Me, personally, when I was going through my issues. I didn’t have anyone to look up to and say, ‘Hey, I’ve gone through this, and I turned out just fine.’ That’s something that is needed, especially being on the opposite end of the spectrum of wanting to know has anyone gone through this. Am I the only one? To be able to have a social media platform and following that we can be like, ‘Hey, we’ve been through this too.’ We go through everyday struggles. It’s really great we can open up and have our voices be heard on a personal level other than a character level. Obviously, at work Alexa Bliss would never admit anything is wrong with her because nothing is wrong with Alexa Bliss. As a person, everything in daily life can affect us. I think it’s great we can share that on social media and Nia preaches body positivity. I share the same sentiment. It’s like in WWE 2K18, be like no one.”

On the recent additions to the Raw Women’s division: “I’m really excited we have women returning and women coming up. Our division needs it. With the women’s revolution going on, it can only help. There is no bad that can come of it because WWE is good about evolving and bringing in new talent. That’s our source. To have people coming in and returning, it’s great. I’ve only had a few matches against Paige on NXT and a few live events. To have her on Raw, I’m real excited to see her back in action. It’s nice to see her happy and healthy. I’m really happy for her.”

On the possibility of a Women’s Royal Rumble: “I think WWE has been ready for that forever. Our women have been ready to step up and push those boundaries and glass ceiling since day one. The fact that we are in this women’s revolution and there are constantly opportunities being given to us that we’ve earned. I think it’s great. I think it’s the next step. Hopefully, one day we main event WrestleMania because I feel like our women can do that.”

Dream Tag Team match: “I’m going to throw it out there. Not saying it will ever happen, but I’d love for it to. I want it to be Nia and I versus the Bella’s versus Trish [Stratus] and Lita. Three groups of best friends, three-way tag match. I think it would be great.”

Alexa Bliss also discusses playing WWE 2K18, taking advantage of opportunities and wanting to improve as a performer.

    Sure they are Lexi, sure they are.

    • #FlairfortheGold

      Lol same but I mean, my girl gets them paychecks to say that so I guess I see why she says it?

  • Darryl lee

    She said claims that bringing up more women up to the main roster is a ‘good’ thing. But I don’t think she seems to realise that:

    1. We need to make sure those girls are well-prepared before coming up to the main roster.
    2. We need to come up with a plan that’s long-term. If you them up just for the sake of it, then their basically settting them up to FAIL.

    Other than that, I think it’s a good interview.

  • Catalina

    Funny how you people can make a good interview into a bad one. Shes been a great champion so far and ready to see her evolve.

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      Nah she’s been champ or in the title scene since last fall 2016. She needs a break because she’s getting stale fast. If Alexa’s character can’t function without a championship, her character is flopping. Charlotte proves you can be relevant without a title.

      • #FlairfortheGold

        But people were literally bashing her for being “boring” without the title… Alexa was quite interesting in NXT for not holding the NXT Women’s title at all

        • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

          I think WWE wrote Alexa into a corner. On MR without the title, she’s irrelevant but at NXT she was interesting without being champ

  • RadicallyRadic

    Also I know it’s not related to this article whatsoever, but HOLY HECK!!!!

    • I think that could be fun

      • RadicallyRadic

        They aren’t looking for fun though, they are looking for weekly writers. if they wanted fun, they wouldn’t even bring them back at all.

        • I know they’re not looking for fun, but writing is fun for me. So let’s relax.

          • RadicallyRadic

            Then apply. It would be cool to have someone who has this approach to writing as part of their team.

  • A?.

    She’s so nice, look at her saying she’s happy for Paige! Unlike others who unfollowed her during her era with Alberto, hm. Queenie Alexa we stan

    • MK126

      who unfollowed her?

    • TorrieTrishStacyLita

      Tea? Receipts?

      • Randall

        Sasha doesn’t follow Paige on instagram! Not sure if they ever followed on another prior.

        • Joseph

          Just because she doesn’t follow her doesn’t they don’t talk to each other off social media.

          • Randall

            Uh ok I clearly wrote I don’t know if they were following each prior. I would assume they talk if they have to put a match together!

        • TorrieTrishStacyLita

          Oh damn Idk that. I knew she didn’t follow Alexa but oop

  • StraightUpBitch

    If WWE are turning her face, I hope they let her have control over her mic work, because she really is such a sweet person, and could become the baby face we deserve and need

    • Buffyrocks

      I can’t see how they could turn her face at this point. She’s been a super heel in the division, and after getting beat up by Absolution, every time she is on commentary (you know, what you do with your champ instead of letting her wrestle I guess…) she cowardly exits whenever they show up. It is a matter of time until they target Bliss, and Paige likely takes the title, setting up the inevitable Paige vs Asuka match. And thank goodness for that, because like I’ve said before, there is no conceivable way that Bliss can hang with Asuka in a match (at this point) without it looking like a squash match.

      After Paige takes it from Bliss, maybe Bliss could start a redemption angle apologizing for being such a b to the girls, slowly turning into a face.

      • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

        Tbh I hope they go that route. Instead of her randomly turning babyface and Sasha/Mickie/Bayley accepting her as friend with no issues lol It would be out character for alot of the women if Bliss turned face and all the currents babyfaces welcomed her with open arms. But WWE creative do lack logic.

      • Randall

        Bliss and Asuka had decent matches at the NXT live events.

        • Buffyrocks

          You are right. It is just a bit sad that a match with Asuka in it has to be referred to as “decent.”

          • Randall

            Lmao honestly most of Askua matches are just decent… seeing that she just runs through all of the women. Yes I said it. Her matches are honestly only excellent when it comes to PPV events.

    • Jorge Hernandez Moran

      If Alexa turns face she better be like Angelina Love was in 2009

      • StraightUpBitch

        Yes! Let her be a badass, but also someone who has to fight to earn her fellow faces trust after all the shit she put them through.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Ok bitch you get a high five from me cuz i wanna see that three way tag match and watch Trish chick kick that ass ?

  • I wonder if PAige it’s going to take that belt from her!? I was hoping Mickie or Alicia, but Absoultion is eclipsing all the competition.

  • I’ll be honest, the idea of a Women’s RR does not excite me at all.

    • Izzy4lw

      I’d be excited to see everyone mix it up though tbh – I’m just wondering who would win and what the prize would be; if it’s a wrestlemania match, then I think it’s obvious that the winner would likely be either Paige or Asuka (likely Asuka) since they’re likely to be in the title picture come WM season. Plus, with Charlotte rumored to face Ronda Rousey for WM, that’ll mean that a SD wrestler won’t be winning that one if the prize is the same as the men.

  • ssilva872

    I would much rather have Bellas vs Trish/Lita vs LayCool but hey anything to have Team Bestie back together would be great.

    • Izzy4lw

      Fatal 4 way – Trish/Lita vs Bellas vs LayCool vs Iconic.

      Book it.

  • Wicked Emma

    Mandy Rose vs Alexa

    • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

      With Mandy finishing Alexa

      • Randall

        With Alexa finishing Mandy….

  • Everyone wants to work with the Bellas. Queens.

    • Izzy4lw

      They will go down as probably the best tag team/group once they are both retired. The only other all women’s group that’s been nearly as influential would be LayCool (since arguably Lita/Trish were never an official duo) and on just storylines alone, I think the Bella’s have eclipsed Michelle/Layla.

      • Definitely, if they aren’t the top team already, the feud with Iconic Duo will put them on there once it’s all said and done. I hope they milk the most of their 2018 return.

      • Typical Heel

        Not Quite, but i would say they may be about the same level right now with easy potential to surpass them

      • Mickie’sNumber1fan

        Uh no. Laycool? Flawless???? First of all Laycool was iconic idk about the Bella’s

      • For me the best duo is The Beautiful People with Angelina and Velvet and by far ! They would have been huge in WWE

    • #FlairfortheGold
  • Mitch Von Erich

    Mane I’m telling u if there be a rumble,Trish better win.Its only right

    • Typical Heel

      Why

    • Randall

      Uhh no

  • Kelly/Asuka???RainbowGoddess!

    Alexa is stale now, she needs a break away from the title. That’s why she’s been irrelevant the last few weeks. Send her butt to catering or 205 with Nia.

    • Randall

      She’s been irrelevant due to the piss poor writing on Raw. Like why is your champion not the focus in a feud right now. I don’t get it.

    • Michelle

      Lmao

  • I like that tag team idea. I admit that I’m not the biggest fan of her in the ring, but out of the ring in these interviews she carries herself very well and with class.

  • Mickie’sNumber1fan

    I love Lexi but keep Trish’s Name out ya mouth. The Bella’s , Nia and Alexa don’t belong in the same sentence as Trish and Lita.

    • Randall

      You act like Trish was the best thing ever to step in the ring. If you really go back and watch her stuff today she was decent in the ring at best.

  • mckenzie

    Really rooting for the originally women of raw. Fox. Sasha. Mickie. Bayley and Bliss. Don’t like seeing them being played the sheep role for Paige and her new comers. Sasha bliss and mickie have been carrying raw to be the dominant brand. They deserve respect.
