Alexa Bliss talks about ‘Four Horsewomen’ snub, being overlooked by WWE

Alexa Bliss speaks on a myriad of issues.

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.

    One of the things that have worked for Sheamus over the years is that he doesn’t take himself too seriously. He has a since of humor. When he got initially trolled by the poster in the audience of Beaker from the Muppet Show, they just decided to go there and he played up to it fine.

    More than a few boo-birds were out there for Bayley tonight. I don’t know if it is because people are getting tired of her gimmick, or because these are smarts out there who may be upset about the RUMOR that Kairi Hojo will not be able to use her incredible top-rope elbow because it is “Bayley’s move.”

    Again this is just a RUMOR coming from Dave Metlzer. He’s been wrong before. They said the same thing about AJ Styles using the Styles Clash.

    In any event, I think the love affair is waning with Bayley a bit.

    I think for the most part she is better than all of the four horsewomen.
    Bayleys gimmick sucks. It’s that horrible underdog gimmick that they saddled Rey Mysterio with as well. It gets them over initially but then fans kinda start to get bored with hearing their story.
    Charlotte I just do not like. Her promo’s are so cliched, and her in ring work while good, still suffers from her giving away moves before they happen.

    Sasha has just lost so much momentum. Her gimmick was kind of a combination of Marise and Michelle McCool, and worked great as a heel, but when they turned her face it just killed her. Yes the feud with Charlotte was great, but once that finished it was just like “ok, what now?”.
    Becky is great in the ring, but promo wise she is miles behind everyone else, and I think her think Irish accent does not help her delivery.

    For me Paige and Alexa were far more the complete deal than all of them. Great gimmicks, great in ring work and great promo’s.
    I especially love the way Bliss reacts to crowd chants, which shows she can think on her feet too.

    I wouldn’t say she has “no” charisma or mic skills, I just think they are under developed. Her promo’s are clunky like she has trouble remembering her lines, which probably comes across as lacking charisma. I also think her broad Irish accent goes against her more than Sheamus’ accent does for instance. I can imagine a lot of the American audience struggles to understand her

    I think it must just be me but I don’t think Alexa delivers on the Mic the way other people think she does

  • Kristopher Robinson

    With her rings skills and mic skills, I would have replaced Becky with her. Becky is good in the ring, but has no charisma or mic skills IMO.
