Earlier this week, WWE announced a new podcast ‘Uncool with Alexa Bliss’ set to debut on September 22, Tuesday, on all major audio streaming platforms.
The podcast will revolve around awkward, embarrassing, and cringe-worthy memories of Bliss and her celebrity guests. The Miz will appear as the guest on the premier episode. Bella Twins, Ryan Cabrera, Taylor Hanson, and more will be appearing in the following episodes.
Speaking with Comicbook, Alexa Bliss shared more details on the origin, theme, and production of the podcast.
Alexa Bliss on the creative process
Bliss shared that she and the creative team brainstormed several ideas for the podcast. But Superstars reminiscing their good old, embarrassing memories is something that clicked right away as a theme.
“Maybe the podcast theme, maybe it’s just reliving embarrassing stories from middle school and high school. And it just clicked, and it was a lot of fun, and we tried the new format, and we got some amazing stories from people. And that’s when we were like, ‘All right, this is what we’re going with.'”
They shot a few episodes of the podcast before the COVID-19 outbreak happened. But after that Bliss needed to have a whole set ready at her home for filming.
Bliss revealed that she and Ryan Cabrera went to her mother’s house to go through Bliss’ personal belongings. They went through her old things from middle school and high school days to bring back and take inspiration from.
“And so we went to my mom’s house, and I started digging out a whole bunch of my old toys, whole bunch of my old stuff from high school and middle school. And that in itself was a lot of fun because we found a lot of interesting stuff that I kept from middle school and high school. And yeah, because that’s the theme of what were you like in middle school and high school and so I was like, ‘This is what I had in middle school and high school, and this was my style.’ And so it just kind of snowballed from there.”
