While of course today’s women’s wrestling landscape is far better than it used to be and female athletes are becoming more equal to men, there’s definitely an argument that the women who endured the times of being eye candy should be heralded and respected as their presence paved the way for such positive change.
Speaking with FOX, Bliss said:
“When I first started in NXT, there were certain moves we weren’t required to learn because we were never going to do them. The idea was a catfight. It all changed for me when I was watching a match with Paige and Emma. They did a top rope suplex and we were like, ‘Hell yeah, this is where it’s all going to change.’ It was awesome because it shows our women are athletic, can do what the men do, and can be seen in a different light. I respect the women who had to do the bra and panties match because I could never do it. Kudos, I couldn’t do it. You’ve got to respect that because they did that, for us to do what we do now.”
Alexa Bliss revealed a few days ago that she’s going to be launching a podcast next month titled ‘Uncool’, with many interviews already in the can and ready to be released.
