Alexa Bliss Talks Title Shot, Getting Drafted

Alexa Bliss is gearing up for the biggest match of her career, next month, as she challenges Becky Lynch for the Smackdown Women's Title.

Bliss discussed the upcoming match, which takes place Nov. 8 in Glasgow, Scotland, in a recent interview with the Idaho Free Press to promote a live event that happened this past Sunday in Nampa, Idaho.

"I'm definitely ready for that match," Bliss said during the interview. "I've gone to the performance center and trained a little bit more in the ring. I've been watching tape and studying her. I've seen everything she can do, but she hasn't seen everything I can do. She may have paved the way for me, but I'm going to take the title and become the evolution of the new era."

Promoted to the main roster in July as part of the WWE draft that split the roster, Bliss spent more than three years in the WWE developmental system and appearing on NXT prior to that.

"People don't realize everything we go through," Bliss said regarding wrestling training. "There are so many times I've gotten bloody noses or have gotten all bruised up. Nothing you do can prepare you for the toll this takes on your body. This is the hardest thing I've ever done."

The upcoming title match between Bliss and Lynch originally was going to take place at the No Mercy pay-per-view held earlier this month, but had to be rescheduled after Lynch had a non-wrestling-related medical situation that forced her out of the ring for the time being.
