Alexa Bliss began her professional wrestling career in WWE's developmental brand NXT in 2013. She was first introduced as a ringside host and interviewer before transitioning into an in-ring competitor. Bliss made her in-ring debut on the May 8, 2014 episode of NXT, losing to Alexa Bliss. Over the next two years, Bliss continued to hone her skills in NXT, competing in various matches and feuds. She formed an alliance with Buddy Murphy and Wesley Blake, known as The Buddy Murphy and Blake and Murphy. This alliance helped establish Bliss as a heel (villainous) character early in her career. In 2016, Bliss won the NXT Women's Championship by defeating Bayley at NXT TakeOver: Respect. Her reign as champion lasted 109 days before she lost the title to Asuka. Bliss's time in NXT allowed her to develop her in-ring abilities, character work, and gain valuable experience before being called up to the main roster.

Alexa Bliss's Dark Transformation: Captivated by 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt

One of the most significant character evolutions for Alexa Bliss came when she became captivated by "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt, adopting a darker persona and becoming his twisted sidekick. This transformation saw the destruction of her friendship with Nikki Cross, as Bliss manipulated WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton under Wyatt's influence. Her trance-like state, haunting laughter, and tears of confusion portrayed a lost girl of sorts, stealing the show whenever she appeared on screen. More recently, there have been speculations about Bliss potentially returning to WWE as part of the new faction "Wyatt 6," led by the mysterious "Uncle Howdy." While her involvement remains unconfirmed, the prospect of Bliss reuniting with Wyatt's universe has intrigued fans, as her previous storyline with The Fiend was widely praised for its creativity and Bliss's commitment to the character.

Anticipated WWE Return

Alexa Bliss has been teasing her highly anticipated return to WWE after taking time off for maternity leave. In recent social media posts, Bliss has cryptically hinted at her comeback, leaving fans speculating about potential new storylines and character directions. One possibility is Bliss reuniting with the mysterious "Uncle Howdy" and joining the rumored "Wyatt 6" faction, given her previous association with Bray Wyatt's twisted universe. Her involvement in this storyline could see a continuation of her "Twisted Bliss" persona, which was widely praised for its creativity and Bliss's commitment to the character. Alternatively, Bliss could make a surprise return at a major event like SummerSlam, which is set to take place in her home state of Ohio. A homecoming return at such a high-profile event would undoubtedly generate an electrifying reaction from the crowd. Another possibility is Bliss immediately inserting herself into the title picture upon her return, potentially challenging the reigning Women's World Champion Bayley. This would not only reignite her pursuit of championship gold but also set up a marquee feud between two of WWE's biggest female stars. Regardless of the direction her return takes, Alexa Bliss's comeback is highly anticipated by fans eager to witness the next chapter in her illustrious WWE career.
