It’s another way to go. Roddy Piper had a great line about acting (paraphrased): “When I was a wrestler, they said I was just an actor. When I was an actor, they said I was just a wrestler.” There is absolutely a connection between wrestler and acting but very few wrestlers have actually managed to pull it off. There has been some success though, and now another wrestler is interested in taking her shot.
During a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, WWE’s Alexa Bliss mentioned that as much as she loves wrestling, she would love to try her hand at acting. Bliss said that she would always be at home in WWE but she has been working with an acting coach for the last ten months. There is nothing to suggest that Bliss will be leaving or taking any time off from WWE to pursue acting anytime soon.
There is something to this. Check out the interview and some of Bliss’ time in WWE:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that you hear quite often from wrestlers and very rarely does it work out. If Bliss can make it work then that is quite impressive, though aside from a few bit parts here or there, it is quite tricky to make something like this work. Bliss is going to be able to be in WWE for as long as she wants to be though and that is quite the fallback option to have.
