Alexa Bliss Credits NXT For Setting Her Up To Succeed, And Discusses Her Match With Trish Stratus At 'Evolution'

Alexa Bliss is ready for it all.

In just two years on WWE's main roster, Alexa Bliss has won the SmackDown Live Women's Championship twice and held the RAW Women's Championship on three separate occasions. Bliss started her wrestling career in NXT and went through a few character changes during her time with the black-and-yellow brand. After not being able to find her footing in NXT, Bliss was drafted to SmackDown Live as a part of the 2016 WWE Draft and was off to the races from that point. Bliss continuously credits NXT for being a place that allowed her to hone her skills and that set her up to become what she has on the main roster and she did just that while being interviewed by SPORTbible.

"NXT is the reason I am the way I am. I came into this untrained. I never took a bump, I was never in a ring before my first day in NXT. NXT gives you all the tools to succeed and you get out what you put in. As long as you put the work in you will succeed. They give us every tool to succeed and they have amazing coaches there. I owe everything to NXT. NXT works and it's awesome." Bliss stated.

Next month on October 28th at WWE's first-ever all-women's PPV 'Evolution', Bliss will be standing across the ring from WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus. Bliss has stated in numerous interviews that this match has always been a dream of hers and to know that her dream match will be coming to fruition in a number of weeks is exciting for her. 

"I'm really excited about Evolution. I think the women deserve to have the spotlight for a long time coming." Bliss said. "The fact that we're getting our own pay-per-view is amazing. I think what would be next is our women to main event WrestleMania. I don't think we're far off from that because we have such a talented and diverse roster. I think that main eventing WrestleMania is very possible for us." She continued, "I used to watch Trish growing up. Her and Rey Mysterio were my favorites. She was this beautiful athletic woman. What girl wouldn't look up to that? I loved her mannerisms in the ring and her confidence and she's definitely someone I've tried to model myself after." 


Before October 28th, Bliss will have the opportunity to walk into 'Evolution' as RAW Women's Champion as she challenges Ronda Rousey for the RAW Women's Championship tonight at WWE's 'Hell In A Cell' PPV.
