Alexa Bliss was recently interviewed by TV Insider in which she revealed how she got her start in Florida Championship Wrestling, the former developmental ground for new WWE talent.
One of her first roles wasn't actually as a wrestler, she was a host and then put on the mic as a ring announcer, which she admits she wasn't good at:
"I felt like it was more of a test to see if I would freeze up. It went well,” Bliss said. “I started hosting the show for a while. Then I moved to ring announcing, which I did for only a very short time because my memory is horrendous. I couldn’t remember the names and weights and where they were from. It was my second or third week there, It was not my forte."
She also commented on the NXT women's division being equal opportunity:
“NXT has always been about providing women equal opportunity as the men in the ring,” she said. “I remember Paige and Emma had the first NXT women’s title match. They had a lot of time for that. It was something that was good about NXT. That we see today with how the women are in the main event of shows and pay-per-views now. It’s incredible.”
