Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss spoke with Weekender to promote this Monday’s Raw in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza. Here are some highlights from the interview:
Being a heel and the reaction from fans:
“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.”
The former WWE Champion who influenced her colorful costumes:
“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.”
Her experience in NXT:
“I didn’t get a lot of time in NXT to really develop in the ring or anything like that; I never had a ‘Takeover’ match; I never had a title. I always said I could not wait to get into a program with Bayley because she gave me some of the best matches I ever had in NXT.”
