WWE Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss revealed how the legendary Rey Mysterio has influenced her wrestling career (specifically wrestling attire) and how much she enjoys playing a heel, all in a recent interview with The Weekender.
On Rey Mysterio’s Influences:
“Rey Mysterio used to have different outfits as well, and I used to watch Rey growing up; and I thought he was awesome because he had lucha style, which I liked because I was a gymnast. The fact he used to dress up as all kinds of different characters is where I got the idea to do that myself.”
On Playing A Heel:
“It’s so much easier to get people to hate you than to like you, and I kind of like to play with that a little bit. Not caring what the fans think and just kind of wanting them to hate me, even though I do kind of care what they think; it’s just so fun to portray this mean person, just to see how people react to it. It’s a lot of fun.”
That’s a cool piece of trivia regarding her wrestling attire. I can also see why she enjoys playing a heel so much, considering she’s one of the best on the microphone and extremely confident in that role. It’s hard to imagine Alexa Bliss as anything but a heel.
