• Alexa Bliss Comments On The Four Horsewomen Stealing All The Focus In NXT
During a recent appearance on Oh Jezuz podcast, Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss talked about not being ready when drafted to SmackDown Live, her favorite WWE stars growing up and the Four Horsewomen stealing all the focus in NXT.
Below are the highlights:
On not being ready when drafted to SmackDown Live:
“When I was drafted to SmackDown Live on the Superstar Draft, I wasn’t sure if I was ready for the main roster. I never had a TakeOver match, I had never held a title in NXT, a majority of my time in NXT was valeting and managing for Blake and Murphy.
I wasn’t given a lot of on-screen time when it came to matches. So, I didn’t know if I was really ready. My first day on SmackDown, I believe I had a speaking segment and I went out and I decided if I was going to come in as an underwhelming draft pick, because let’s be honest, I was. No on was really excited to have me, because I didn’t do these amazing things in NXT! I decided to come in under the radar and kick down the door.”
On her favourite WWE stars growing up:
“Rey Mysterio and Trish Stratus. I loved watching Rey, because I was a gymnast, so watching his lucha style was very captivating to me and I found it very fascinating watching him flip around. And Trish, because you know, it’s Trish. Who doesn’t love her?”
On the Four Horsewomen stealing all the focus:
“All the focus at the time was on the Four Horsewomen. I was in there at the same time as the Four Horsewomen, but I wasn’t given that spotlight. I wasn’t the girl they chose to go with. Which is fine because if the Four Horsewomen were going to be the face of this ‘Women’s Evolution’ that’s amazing.
I know I came in under the radar, I can be that person that evolves that evolution and that revolution and take it to the next step. Be that different kind of person, that different face then being with the Four Horsewomen. I could kind of make my own path.”

Regarding the kind of in-ring schedule Bryan will work, it isn’t expected to be a full time schedule.
