• Alexa Bliss Explains Why She Wrestles In A T-Shirt

The current WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion used to wrestle in a proper wrestling gear when she first showed up in the WWE, but after a few years of arriving on the main roster, she started wrestling in a t-shirt.

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Alexa Bliss talked about her battle with mental illness, and why she wears a t-shirt while competing in the ring.

Below is what Alexa said:

“I take it day-by-day. Dealing with eating disorders, anxiety, and depression, I’m no stranger to mental illness. Every few years, I deal with a really bad spell of depression. You have to know it doesn’t have to overtake your life.

Mental illness can dictate someone’s entire life. I put myself in a position to be in the public eye, but I’m doing what I love. I’ve gone to therapy, I’ve done everything I can do to get my brain in a healthy place.

There are some things I still do — I still wear my t-shirt when I wrestle. One, it’s to promote merch because I think it’s cute, and two, because I’m always going to be that self-conscious person.

But I don’t let it dictate my life like I used to.”
