Alexa Bliss recently spoke with USA Today/For The Win to promote Backlash and more. You can check out the full interview here along with some highlights below.
Making adjustments after moving from NXT to the main roster: Obviously, it’s working in front of a bigger crowd, but the bigger adjustment has probably been switching schedules. We kept a very busy schedule in NXT, but it was more group oriented. You just assume everyone in NXT is going everywhere. Now everyone gets their own schedule with where to be on what day. I like it better. It’s a lot easier to work on my own schedule in when I’m working out, when I’m getting in the ring and training on off days.
We also [do more live television]. It’s a little nerve-wracking but also exciting. It makes me think more about what are the things I can apply in the ring, but I am comfortable without having a safety net.
How she’s preparing for the six-pack challenge at Backlash: My preparation is focusing less on the other women in the ring. I’m focusing on how this is the first-ever SmackDown Live women’s championship and what I can do to the best of my abilities to make sure I’m the last person standing. The other girls can do what they can do, but it’s not going to match up to what I’m going to do.
