If you’re a fan of Alexa Bliss then you might really enjoy her frequent fits of frustration that give her character a childlike aspect. As it turns out there is a very good reason for this correlation.
Alexa Bliss recently spoke to The Detroit News where she discussed how the Little Miss Bliss character really developed one of her most famous aspects better known as “Bliss Fits.”
But before Bliss could really stretch her legs and get into the persona there was a period of adjustment while she learned the ropes of this new brattier version of herself.
“Before I was portraying the character, Alexa Bliss, I was very shy, very uncomfortable with playing a bad guy or showing any emotion, really. 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.”
It turns out that one of the most helpful things Bliss could do in order to develop this new persona was taking NXT GM William Regal’s advice and simply go people watching.
“[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.”
Then suddenly, like a burst of inspiration Alexa Bliss understood so much more of her character when she saw a child do their thing without shame in a very public setting.
“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.'”
It might be hard to picture an Alexa Bliss where temper tantrums aren’t a part of her character but as it turns out, without proper inspiration the WWE Universe might be minus one of their top obnoxious heels.
