Talking Smack disappointed legions of fans when news of its cancelation dropped last month.
One of the guest stars of the program was Alexa Bliss, who would go on to move to Raw and win the brand's women's championship. When speaking of Brian Fritz of Between the Ropes during Summerslam weekend, Bliss spoke highly of the now post-PPV only program.
"Talking Smack was amazing. It allowed me to develop my character in ways that if not given the opportunity on TV -- sometimes you're not scheduled to talk on TV, you're not scheduled for a match -- with Talking Smack you got that platform to really voice your opinion, to really voice why you do the things you do in your matches and develop and hone in on your character. It was awesome, I loved it. I definitely benefited a lot from Talking Smack. I think my character probably wouldn't be in the position it is in without Talking Smack, because I was on it so much. I made the joke, it should be called Talking Bliss."
The show remained after PPV events, but several stars were bummed about the move. You can check out the full interview with Alexa Bliss above.
