Alexa Bliss has been working in WWE for many years now and has worked hard to establish herself as one of the highlights of the women’s division. She will continue to get fan support no matter what. Bliss also had ideas for a much darker character upon her return.
At WWE Extreme Rules 2021, Alexa Bliss’ doll Lilly was destroyed by Charlotte Flair. Afterwards, Bliss took time off to get sinus surgery. Prior to her return during the WWE Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event, the company aired segments where Bliss was in therapy to cope with the loss of Lilly.
While speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Alexa Bliss revealed that she pitched making her return as an even darker character with Lilly.
“That was a pitch that I pitched for a very long time. It was originally a different kind of therapy because I wanted to be taken away at Extreme Rules and then come back a different version of the Dark Alexa character. Obviously, things change and all that jazz. I had to have surgery, so we were like, ‘oh, perfect, it’s an amount of time to go away and give time for Extreme Rules to settle and come back with these therapy sessions.’ They were so much fun. Everyone knows I love acting and performing in that aspect. It’s something I always feel creatively fulfilled in. For me, it was my creative outlet, having the most fun I can. It was so much fun. We have a good amount of creative control and Vince (McMahon) was super awesome. From what I’ve heard, he sat down for a few hours, wrote it all out, and took the vision and made it come to life.
I did. I wanted it to go even darker and deeper. I had Jason (Baker) come out with a sketch and prototype of a different version of Lilly, which would have been super cool. Obviously, with creative, things always change. I’m still holding on that this new version of Lilly will come out one day. We’ll see.”
Alexa Bliss was part of the Women’s Money In The Bank ladder match, but was unable to win it. We will have to wait and see what the company will have planned for her next.
