Alexa Bliss didn't expect to be called on the main roster

Alexa Bliss didn't exactly seem predestined when she set foot on NXT. While she didn't get much of her during her experience in the 'Black and Gold' brand, the 30-year-old from Columbus literally exploded once she hit the main roster.

Alexa has in fact won the Raw Women’s Championship three times, the SmackDown Women’s Championship twice and the Women’s Tag Team Championship twice together with Nikki Cross. She also won the 2018 Money in the Bank Ladder match and became the second Triple Crown.

After her partner Bray Wyatt was released from WWE, Bliss struggled to find a new dimension and experts advised her to leave the Stamford-based federation. Alexa was absent for nearly two months, before making her comeback on the May 9, 2022 episode of Raw.

During a long interview with 'BT Sport', Bliss recalled the 2016 draft (which propitiated her debut on the main roster).

Backstage news on Alexa Bliss

“It was definitely a special moment, because I didn't think I was going to be drafted.

I was convinced that my time had not yet come” - said Alexa Bliss. “I had been at NXT for three years and - looking back today - almost all the boys and girls I started training with had already been called to the main roster.

I was afraid and believed that my turn would never come. I remember immediately sending a message to my mother” - she added. Bliss then commented on her decision to step away from WWE in late 2021 and early 2022: "Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone.

I was literally at the end of my strength after Extreme Rules, I was struggling even to sleep. I was so consumed with my work that a break was needed. Although some did not understand my choice, I am happy to have drifted away for a while.

During that time, I was able to recharge my batteries and organize my wedding without feeling overwhelmed by external factors. I needed it." Alexa Bliss recently chatted with about her therapy sessions. She revealed that she had a different idea for her character's return, wanting to return as a scarier version of herself.

The idea didn't make it to TV: "For the therapy stuff, it was an idea that I had going one way, and WWE had going another way and so we collaborated. It turned into the therapy that you saw on TV. I wanted to originally come back as something more evil and more dark and more scary, but WWE had other plans."
