Alexa Bliss has been praised for her rapid improvement over the last year, as she's transitioned from NXT to Smackdown. Bliss credits a couple of big players for helping her out.
In a recent interview with The Whig, Bliss pointed her finger at WWE Raw Women's Champion Charlotte for mentoring her early in her career.
"In NXT, I was there for the start of the women's revolution with the Four Horsewomen and I just remember one person who always helped me out was Charlotte. My first day, she took me under her wing, showed me the ways. She would always get in the ring with me for extra time and practice with me and she became one of the biggest names now in WWE, when I think of superstars, and is main eventing and is having these iconic, historic moments. She was one person who definitely helped me," said Bliss.
Charlotte wasn't the only women's champion to cause Bliss to step up her game. Bliss' rival Becky Lynch was a major aid in Bliss' strides inside and outside of the ring.
"As much as I hate to say it, Becky helped me, too. I'm going to be facing her, but I was there when Becky first started, I was there on her first day already. I saw her evolve into what she is now, and when she left to go to the main roster with the other three women, I saw everything that she could do, but she hasn't seen everything that I've learned since then. After working with Becky, after working with Charlotte, Bayley was still in NXT and Bayley also helped me get to that next level. Bayley has given me some of my best matches to date and I'm really excited to see where I measure up to Becky now because I have been pushed to that limit, I have been training more, I have learned more things. Becky doesn't know what's coming," Bliss said.
Bliss will take on Becky Lynch for the Smackdown Women's Championship on November 8.
