Ever since Bray Wyatt made his return to WWE at Extreme Rules, speculation has abounded about whether he’ll be recruiting other performers into his rumored Wyatt 6 stable. NXT stars such as Joe Gacy and Grayson Waller teased joining the popular star, and many have wondered whether Alexa Bliss will be renewing her alliance with her former mentor.
Speculation about Bliss has gained momentum in recent weeks, and during a backstage interview the night after WWE Survivor Series, Little Miss Bliss looked distracted as her team celebrated their victory inside WarGames. Bray Wyatt‘s moth logo appeared behind her on that occasion, and an alliance between the two was further teased when she nearly delivered Sister Abigail to Bianca Belair on the December 12th episode.
On the most recent episode of WWE Raw, Bliss attacked Bianca Belair after an interview segment with Byron Saxton, adding to the speculation that she could be turning to the dark side.
Speaking to BT Sport’s Rob Armstrong on What Went Down, Alexa Bliss talked about her time working with Bray Wyatt previously, calling it the most fun time of her entire career.
“This was the most fun I’ve ever had in my entire career. The most fun I’ve ever had in my entire career, I can easily say, was this time period. I’ve never had more fun in my life.”
Continuing, Alexa Bliss said she was on board as soon as a partnership between herself and Wyatt was pitched, and also revealed that she’d pitched a similar character during her time in WWE NXT.
“100%. I had pitched a character like this, Dark Alexa, way back in NXT, before Blake and Murphy. I’ve always loved doing something different. I don’t like being the same character all the time. I remember, I’ve looked back, and I was like, ‘Man, I’ve been like six or seven different versions of myself,’ which was so fun. I love being able to portray a character. I love being able to go outside of the box, do different things, and this was the most fun.”
Alexa Bliss Calls Bray Wyatt A “Creative Genius”
Later in the interview, Alexa Bliss was asked about Seth Rollins’ previous comments that working with Wyatt was difficult from a character perspective. The former Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion said she loved working with someone she called a “creative genius,” noting that their partnership made her step up her game as a performer.
“He is such a creative genius that it made me want to step my game up. We had had conversations before, but not like this. So whenever he would say, ‘Okay, so I have this idea for this, this, this, and this,’ it made me realize that I’m on this fast-moving train, and I either have to step up or get the hell off. So it was one of those things.
“He’s a fast-moving train. He’s creatively always going, always thinking, always thinking of the next thing, always saying, ‘Hey, have you seen this documentary? Watch this documentary, watch this because there’s something here you can take from John Wayne Gacy, there’s something you can take from the Manson situation.
“There’s all these things you can take from.’ So I’ve never put so much research into a character as I did when I was with Bray, and I think that’s why it was so fun for me, too. I was doing something completely different, but I was also taking things from real life and putting it into a character for the first time, so it was really cool.”
Alexa Bliss went on to reaffirm her admiration and talked about the process of bouncing creative ideas off one another.
“He’s such a creative genius. He has all of these ideas. Some of them are way out there that you have to reel in. You’re like, ‘Okay, I don’t think we can do that.’ But then there’s all these things, he just has all these concepts and all these ideas that are just so good.
“It was so fun to be able to sit down with him and just bounce ideas back and forth. But because working with him, now I have almost unlocked a different side of my brain creatively to where now I get these ideas that I can pitch and try to portray, and it’s just so much more. Because of him, I was able to come up with the concept for Lilly, so it was cool. It was really cool.”
In addition, Alexa Bliss stated her belief that Bray Wyatt’s 2021 exit from WWE left a huge character void in the company.
“Obviously he’s such a key part of WWE, and such a presence and character that it’s so great that he’s back because I feel like there was this character void, and the fact that he’s back, and you need that creative energy around for sure.”
