Alexa Bliss Speaks On How She Struggled With Promos During The Beginning Stages Of Her Career And Talks What Ronda Rousey Brings To The WWE

"Little Miss Bliss" believes that "Rowdy" Ronda is a great addition to WWE's women's division.

At the 'Elimination Chamber' PPV, Alexa Bliss retained her RAW Women's Championship inside the first-ever Women's Elimination Chamber match. The two-time holder of the red-brand's Women's title spoke with ESPN shortly after her historic victory. On that same PPV, former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey signed her contract with the RAW brand. Bliss feels that Rousey's emergence onto the WWE scene is one that will benefit all involved.

"I think it's great that she's here," Bliss said. "She's built a brand for herself and a name for herself, and for her to be able to bring her fan base into what we do, into our world of the WWE is fantastic. If anyone can legitimize how tough it is to do what we do, it's Ronda. She's made a name for herself in the UFC, she's worked hard, she knows the grind and for her fans to come here and watch her grow and see the struggles that we all go through, I think will give people more of an appreciation for what we do. I think she's just what we need for the women's revolution in the WWE."

While Rousey was delivering her first promo during her contract signing, she appeared to be a bit overwhelmed and began to tear up as "Ronda Rousey" chants broke out through the T-Mobile Arena. Bliss knows the feeling of being nervous while speaking in front of a large crowd. She has stated in numerous interviews that it took her a long time to get accustom to speaking in front of people in general, let alone a arena full of fans, but now Bliss has become a natural at it.

"It took me forever to get comfortable. When I first started NXT, we had promo classes and I used to get so upset because I couldn't get in front of a crowd and talk. I was terrified. Actually, our referee Shawn Bennett was just talking about my first promo class. I stood up there and started crying because I was really embarrassed to be in front of a large group and speaking. I performed in front of large crowds before, but I never had to speak in front of them, so it's just one of those things you have to keep doing and doing. You have to put yourself in the most uncomfortable situations and make them comfortable."


The former two-time SmackDown Live Women's Champion has continued her heelish ways coming out of 'Elimination Chamber'. She recently gave some "encouragement" to her "best-friend" Nia Jax. To read more into that, head over to our Monday Night RAW results .
