As reported on by WrestlingInc, Alexa Bliss was interviewed for The Weekender where she spoke about the fans, being a heel and who influenced her.
The first big point covered in the interview is if Alexa likes being a heel and the reactions she gets from fans. Alexa has been heel ever since aligning herself with Blake & Murphy back in NXT.
“It’s so much easier to get people to hate you than to like you, and I kind of like to play with that a little bit. Not caring what the fans think and just kind of wanting them to hate me, even though I do kind of care what they think; it’s just so fun to portray this mean person, just to see how people react to it. It’s a lot of fun.”
Alexa also talked about her inspiration. This was explained on the YouTube video ‘Alexa Bliss: My Daughter Is A WWE Superstar‘ but many people probably didn’t see this.
“Rey Mysterio used to have different outfits as well, and I used to watch Rey growing up; and I thought he was awesome because he had lucha style, which I liked because I was a gymnast. The fact he used to dress up as all kinds of different characters is where I got the idea to do that myself.”
Alexa Bliss will be defending the Raw Women’s Championship against Bayley at ‘Extreme Rules’ in a Kendo Stick on a Pole match.
Alexa is one of my favorite wrestlers right now. I love her as a heel. She does a tremendous job, has the crowd in the palm of her hand. I dislike the stipulation imposed on her and Bayley at the pay-per-view, but I have faith they will do good.
