Alexa Bliss recently spoke to TVInsider about her current storyline with Bray Wyatt, her tag team with Nikki cross, and her new podcast “Uncool.”

Below are some highlights.

Alexa Bliss on her relationship with Nikki Cross:

I’m very proud of how far she has come. If there was ever one thing I would tell her no matter what makes it real, whether it was being nervous about a promo or something else. If you believe what you’re saying, everyone else is going to believe it. That’s my thing I always tell everyone. Feel what your character is feeling. Act the way your character would act. It’s super relatable, which is why I think people have been able to connect with her on a different level now because she truly believes what she is saying.

That’s great. Our match together was a lot of fun. It was really the first time we had a match together. We had one three-minute match in NXT, but it was during the Download Festival in the UK. It was not televised. That was the only singles match we had leading up to it. The match was a lot of fun. I think it is super important to have the support because what we do is tough. You can sometimes get in your own head and be nervous, especially if you are newer. Even if you aren’t newer, but trying something different, it’s good to have the support of someone else next to you.

Alexa Bliss on her current storyline with Bray Wyatt:

I love anything that is different and out-of-the-box. I love being able to evolve and change the character and spike people’s interest. I think that is what we’ve been doing with The Fiend. Everyone knows I love promos and to be able to have a microphone and portray a character. It’s my favorite thing to do, so the fact I was able to try something new I’m having a lot of fun and excited to see where it goes.

Alexa Bliss on her relationship with boyfriend, Ryan Cabrera:

From day one since we’ve met, he has never had a filter. He doesn’t care. He’d rather be open and honest about the embarrassing things that have happened in his life. A lot of the stories we talk about I’ve already known. But to hear him talk about them and be ready for the world to hear them is actually really funny. We talk about how he would go door-to-door to sorority houses and play for them in hopes they would come to his show later. We talked about his encounters with celebrities. How embarrassing they were.

We talk about a lot of fun stuff with Ryan. It’s definitely a different side of him than people see. The whole main point of the podcast is to talk about things that celebrities have not said in interviews. I know Miz for example, when we did his, he told me he has never told anyone these stories. I’ve gotten that a few times from people I’ve interviewed. That’s what is going to make it different. Stuff people don’t necessarily want to tell because they are embarrassing stories, but they tell them because they don’t want to keep them a secret their whole lives.

Her new podcast is set to debut next Tuesday, September 22nd.
