She discussed how different the job is from an in-ring role.
“It’s a little bit of a change, but it’s pretty much the same kind of thing. We tell stories in the ring, out of the ring, and I’m able to do both now, which is nice. And it’s just more opportunity to be able to hone my craft and get better at what I do.”
“A lot of times, in the stories that we tell, a lot of people don’t have the opportunity to speak their character, they just have to portray it in the ring. So being able to advance the storylines with talk show (segments) for other characters, plus add another dimension to my character, is a great opportunity.”
Bliss was out of action for quite a while with concussion-related issues, and returned to the ring at Royal Rumble, in January. Since her return, she has had a limited amount of time in the ring, but has been training at the Performance Center with Mike Quackenbush. It is very possible she hasn’t been 100-percent cleared for in-ring competition, which could be why she is predominately in a hosting role.
Little Miss Bliss will be the host of this year’s WrestleMania, airing live from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on April 7.
