Shayna Baszler and Alexa Bliss are currently involved in a rivalry that features haunted dolls and hypnosis. The feud is a major talking point within the wrestling community, with many fans criticising the angle’s supernatural elements.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, ‘The Queen of Spades’ spoke about her polarising feud with Alexa Bliss.
Baszler’s WWE main roster run is far from her dominant run in NXT. But Baszler revealed that she wants to prove she can grow and evolve as a character.
Here’s what Baszler had to say;
“I need to show that I can be counted on to nail whatever it is I’m being asked to do. It’s easy to be a badass tyrant like I was in NXT. I can totally fit that role. After establishing myself as that, it’s important to show I can cover a wide range of what professional wrestling is today.”
“It’s like music. Some people like country, some like heavy metal. Not everything is for everyone, so I understand why some people roll their eyes when I do comedy. But I’m established as what I am. All it takes is one sentence from a promo delivered properly. I am a legitimate badass; that’s always there for me. I’m glad I can be on Raw and show a wider range.”
“I’m putting more tools in my toolbox. I worked for years to build this legitimacy. I walk through the curtain, and you know I can ruin someone. I won’t let people forget that.”
Baszler’s recent feuds have indeed shown that she is willing to go with the flow to find that range. Her segments and resulting match with Reginald was fun and different, while her feud with Bliss shows another side to her character never seen before.
