Alexa Bliss is one of the most successful female wrestlers in recent memory, and she recently completed the Triple Crown in the Women’s Division. Currently, she is the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion along with her ‘friend’ Nikki Cross, and is set to defend the titles on Sunday against Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville.

On the eve of the PPV, Bliss spoke to TV Insider, and talked about her career in WWE, right from her FCW days. She revealed that Triple H took her interview, and was impressed by her. He signed her to FCW, where she initially started out as a Ring Announcer.

“I started hosting the show for a while. Then I moved to ring announcing, which I did for only a very short time because my memory is horrendous. I couldn’t remember the names and weights and where they were from. It was my second or third week there, It was not my forte.”

Bliss revealed that she failed horribly at ring announcing, and quickly adapted herself to the demands of in-ring performances. She was thankful to her former mates Wesley Blake and Buddy Murphy, who helped her become a better character in the company.

“I was very fortunate to have Blake and Murphy because there definitely wouldn’t be an Alexa Bliss if it wasn’t a Blake and Murphy along the way because I got to focus on my character. Some people struggle finding that balance of being in the ring and fleshing out their character and keeping it going. With Blake and Murphy, I was able to do that. I was very fortunate to have them. I owe a lot to them.”

Alexa Bliss feels NXT is a great place for the Women’s Revolution, and talked about who is her favorite currently. Bliss had lots of praise for Bianca Belair and said that her charisma and athleticism are great to see.

“Bianca is athletic and has a ton of charisma. I think she is really talented I watched the last TakeOver she was in, and it was incredible.”
