For nearly two months now, WWE superstars have had to work without a crowd due to the coronavirus pandemic. The adjustments have been noticeable and some have thrived while others have looked a little more lost without being able to feed off the reactions.
For Alexa Bliss, she's been able to survive the Performance Center shoes by recalling her face run in NXT.
"Well, actually when I was a good guy back in NXT, when I first started in the ring, I didn't get reaction anyway as a good guy, so I'm used to having no crowd reaction," Bliss told Comic Book. "I didn't get any reaction until I became a bad guy, but I guess I got used to it because we would have practice matches all the time in NXT where there wasn't anyone there, and I think it's fun. I think it challenges us to try something new and to be extra vocal in the ring and help that dynamic of telling the story. We use the fans a lot in what we do and to tell our stories by using the crowd reaction, but when the crowd reaction is not there, we have to add another element to it. And I just think it's a good challenge and I don't really see much difference with it, to be honest."
Bliss and Nikki Cross won the Women's Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania 36 in front of no crowd and have been featured weekly in wrestling matches and promo segments.
