Alexa Bliss opened up about her not being a part of the Four Horsewomen, besides revealing how the WWE snub helped her become greater.
In a recent interview with Aaron Oster, Alexa Bliss spoke on a myriad of issues including the aforementioned topics and her move from SmackDown to RAW.
Bliss was drafted from SmackDown Live to Monday Night RAW during the Superstar Shake-Up following Wrestlemania 33.
The 25 year old would go on to capture the RAW Women’s Championship, making history by becoming the first woman to hold both the SmackDown and RAW Women’s Championships.
On the past couple of months that saw her make the jump from the blue brand to the red, Alexa Bliss stated-
“These past two months have been amazing. I’m very grateful for the opportunity that I’ve been given in WWE. I wasn’t sure how my transition to Raw would go. The fact that I’ve been able to become Raw women’s champion and be the first to win both titles has been such an honor and it’s been such an amazing two months. It’s been a lot of work, but it had an amazing payoff.”
Furthermore, on being left out of the Four Horsewomen, Bliss added-
“Yeah, I think it put a chip on my shoulder, and it really drove me. I decided that with this opportunity, I was going to come in under the radar and so I’d have to kick down the door. I wasn’t featured as one of the Four Horsewomen, I wasn’t chosen for that opportunity. I wasn’t highlighted like the other women, but I was still there with all of them. I was there just as long, if not longer, as some of them because I was there before Becky. I came in when Charlotte and Bayley and Sasha were there”
Additionally, Alexa elucidated on the WWE’s initial snub motivating her to ascend to greater heights-
“I had trained with each and every one of them. I had some of my best matches with Sasha and Bayley. Charlotte took me under her wing when I first got there. I was there for all of it. I just wasn’t featured at that time. So I thought that if I was going to be called to SmackDown, then let them underestimate me and let me come in under the radar so I can kick down the door”
Alexa Bliss will defend her RAW Women’s Championship against Bayley in a Kendo Stick on a Pole Match at Extreme Rules that goes down at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland on June 4th.
Always one to speak her mind, Li’l Miss Bliss fears nobody. It’s great to see the youngster ascend to greatness and we, as fans, are all aboard for the ride.
