With Halloween just around corner, WWE.com has reminisced with NXT stars about Halloweens gone by.
Alexa had fond memories of dress up to match her life size Barbie doll: “I was about 5 or 6 years old. Growing up, I was always a huge Barbie fan so it only made since for me to dress up as my idol at the time. The outfit I wore matched my My Size Barbie doll. My mom was Dorothy and I was Glinda the Good Witch.”
Renee recalled dressing as another holiday’s mascot – the Easter bunny: “Well, here I am at 4 years old and I went as the Easter Bunny for Halloween. I think I was confused. Also, literally everyone in my family was forced to wear that thing at one point. It was a smash hit. I looted tons of candy that year!”
Becky, meanwhile, drew from her bear fascination: “OK, so I was 7 and I dressed up like a panda because I thought they were cool. I thought I was strong like a bear but also more unique and rare, like a panda. That was the Halloween I threw my first non-birthday party. I thought birthdays and parties were the exact same thing and could spell birthday but not party, so I sent out all my invitations for my ‘Halloween birthday.’ My mom had bought a cake that was shaped like a bear, but because I had such a strong bond with the hairy fellas, I threw a tantrum when my mom attempted to cut it to dish it out to my friends. In my mind, I felt by cutting the birthday bear cake, she was causing harm to the bear. I later found out that my brother ate the ear, so in retaliation I kicked him so hard in the shin that I made him cry. I wasn’t just a unique panda; I was a defensive one, too!”
