Alexa Bliss Used Her Love Of Disney To Get Hired In NXT

Posted By: Ben Pearce on Aug 30, 2018

Alexa Bliss Used Her Love Of Disney To Get Hired In NXT

Alexa Bliss was recently interviewed by Not Sam Wrestling and revealed how she used her love of Disney movies to develop her character in NXT whether she was portraying a princess or a villain.

On Her Babyface Character:

"So that was me, okay? That's the thing! "I love all things Disney and it was my idea to throw glitter and wear a tutu and if you ever look back at my first tutu it went down to my knees, it was really embarrassing."

On Her Tryout: 

"My tryout -- I was asked why I wanted to be in WWE, Mind you my tryout, I had submitted a video. I was apparently the only person who submitted my own video to get the tryout and it was a casting call so there were all these models walking around and I texted my mom like, 'Well I'm not making it.' I texted my mom and I was like, 'I'm five foot, these girls are Hollywood models walking around.' They told us to do something to make us stand out and I remember thinking of American Idol people making themselves look like idiots so I wasn't gonna do that.

"So I was asked why I wanted to be in WWE and just to get the attention -- because I was a fan too, you know what I mean? Like I walked in and I saw Triple H and I said, 'Oh my god do you know you're Triple H?!' Oh that was me -- totally me. I did that.

"I remember these other girls in the tryout who walked in and didn't know who he was and I almost had a heart attack -- 'Oh my god, you're Triple H! Did you know you're Triple H and you're in the same room as me?!'... very embarrassing, but they asked me why I wanted to be in WWE. And to stand out I said, 'I really want to be Tinker Bell at Disney and I'm hoping this gets my foot in the door.'"

On Her Use Of Glitter Getting Banned:

When I was 'Glitter Glitz' I pitched for the whole room to go blue like Rey Mysterio," Bliss revealed, "they were like, 'no.' I was like, 'what if it rained glitter?' they were like, 'no.' Actually, I got banned from using glitter for a little bit because the match after me Tyler Breeze had glitter all over his back.

"They made me wear little gloves on my hands to blow the glitter and take them off, but they were socks because I never had gloves so I had to cut socks -- I'm thrifty."

On Being A Surprise Draft Pick: 

"Because in NXT, obviously, I wasn't a 4 Horsewoman, I wasn't something that people were excited to see. But, it's true! I'll admit that! You know what I mean? I was a very underwhelming draft pick, I was. I remember my first promo on SmackDown, it was during the Draft I remember thinking, 'Okay if there's one thing I can do it is somewhat speak on a microphone and if that's gonna set me aside' -- because we had everyone drafted at the same time. So what's gonna separate you from everyone else? I was like, 'okay I can kinda talk some crap.'

"Then my first promo had a word like 'Blissertation' and I went, 'What the hell is this?' I was like, 'This is my moment and I'm gonna mess up?' It was that moment when I was in Gorilla [Position] and I was standing back there and I was like, 'Okay, I'm not gonna lie people are not excited to see me here so I gotta come in under the radar and kick down the door and show that I deserve to be here.' I wasn't an indie wrestler, I was never a 4 Horsewoman, I was never in a TakeOver match, I never held a title... I was a manager and so I had to show that I deserve to be here and if they're not gonna see it I'm gonna force them to see it."

On Her Favorite WrestleMania: 

"I would say my favorite WrestleMania, in general, was 30, but in my career, it was last year,"  "Because I got to do that really cool entrance. That was so cool. I was terrified, but it was really cool. I loved last year's WrestleMania because it was in Orlando and my family got to be there.

"It was just a lot of fun. Like I didn't know in Orlando's WrestleMania, I didn't know I had pyro. You can see it on film. So it was so funny because all of the other girls got pyro and I'm like, 'that's crazy, they get pyro! Do we get pyro?' The other girls were like, 'no I don't think we get pyro.' And I walk out and there's pyro and I jump because no one told me that I was gonna have fireworks going off behind me. It was a good surprise but you see me jump about a foot on the entrance."
