We finally have gotten to the bottom of any mystery regarding the origin story of Alexa Bliss’ now-infamous Lilly doll!
According to Bliss, the Lilly doll concept was actually her idea.
Speaking to WWE Deutschland, Bliss said about the concept of the Lilly doll and her fondness for it:
“Love it, I love it [seeing younger fans with the Lilly doll]. It’s so great. You know, Lilly was a fun concept to bring to life. I texted Jason [Baker] who does all the work on the masks that you see on WWE, all of the — the crown that I wore with the black goo coming out of it. Him and his wife did that and they are incredible talent and any kind of prop work that you see that’s a little extra special, that definitely comes from them.
“They did a lot of puppets for the Firefly Fun House, Alexa’s Playground, they came out with Lilly and it was really cool because I had texted Jason and I was saying, ‘I really want a doll to interact with’and he was like, ‘A doll?’ I said, ‘Yeah. I want a doll’ and I was like, ‘I want it to look like someone scribbled her, like a child scribbled her on a piece of paper. She just popped off the page.’ I was like, ‘Button eyes, 3D teeth, want it to kind of look like me but scary’ and they came up with — they showed me Lilly and it was the most incredible thing I’ve ever seen.
“And you know, I was so happy that WWE went for it because I know that it was something special about Lilly and the fact that she has resonated with so many people, especially the younger generation of fans because it just shows that they enjoy her as much as I do and it’s a lot of fun to work with Lilly and it’s just so cool. I always just wanted to have, you know, something that people can just, you know — tangible they can play with and it’s Lilly and it’s awesome.”
Alexa Bliss continues to be a bit directionless on Monday Night Raw despite featuring in a #1 contenders match on this week’s episode of Raw (June 6) where she teased a possible tag team with Liv Morgan with the two briefly teaming up during the melee.
Bliss is a former Women’s Tag Team Champion, holding the titles twice along with tag partner Nikki Cross, now known as Nikki A.S.H.
