Alexa Bliss Reveals The One Moment That Helped Her Become An Obnoxious Heel

Alexa Bliss
Alexa Bliss was recently interviewed by The Detroit News to promote her upcoming Raw appearance at the Little Caesars Arena. Bliss explained that she was very shy before playing the character that the WWE Universe see in the ring.

"Before I was portraying the character Alexa Bliss, I was very shy, very uncomfortable with playing a bad guy or showing any emotion, really," said Bliss. "Now when I'm in the ring or doing a speaking segment, I get so wrapped up in the character that I don't even notice I'm doing it. It's a natural feeling for me."

Being inspired by NXT General Manager William Regal on how to be a heel, Bliss was taught how to use real-life observations to add layers to her character. Bliss explained, "[Regal] would sit and watch people in airports and out in public and he would study their mannerisms, and he'd say if they bothered him, chances are they'd bother other people."

One observation in particular helped her go to a deeper level of being an obnoxious heel, and to know how to turn a crowd around to jeer her.

"I saw how other people were looking at this child, screaming his head off, kicking and screaming in the store, and the poor mother was just mortified and trying to get her son to stop," said Bliss. "I was like, 'that's gold. I'm using that.'"
