Alexa Bliss Talks NXT, Bodybuilding, Overcoming an Eating Disorder and More

Alexa Bliss has opened up in a new interview with WWE.com, talking about her athletic background and revealing her history with an eating disorder, sharing how she overcame it to become the Diva she is today.

Competing in gymnastics and cheerleading in college: “The experience in those sports really helped me transition into the ring where I’ve been able to implement those skills into high-flying maneuvers and wrestling fundamentals.”

Her affinity for sparkles: “I like to be sparkly! It makes me happy. I love to stand out and embrace my uniqueness and I am very lucky I get to incorporate that into my gear. I hope the sparkle and glitter that I spread makes other people happy, too.”

Alexa also discusses in detail how she dealt with an eating disorder, which the article states put her in the hospital after she lost 30 pounds in six weeks and dropped her heartbeat to 28 beats per minute.

Accepting herself after this incident: “The doctors saved my life. From that point on, I made a decision to love myself and had to accept that it’s OK to be different.”

Using bodybuilding to gain confidence: “Bodybuilding gave me a healthy way to gain weight and learn to balance my life. Earning my pro card within a year, I got to do something I enjoyed and be healthy at the same time. Bodybuilding helped me to realize that I don’t have to look like the girls in the magazines and that it’s OK to feel good about my curves. I hope that I can be a role model and positive influence to anyone else who is struggling with insecurities within themselves.”

Her goals as a Diva: “I want to be the best Diva I can be. Hopefully one day I can become a champion that is a role model and someone who all of our fans, young and old, can look up to and be proud of.”
