One of my favorite storylines in WWE right now centers around Alexa Bliss seemingly falling under the spell of The Fiend, Bray Wyatt. She was attacked by him, responded by being gentle to avoid further physicality, and then suddenly started making changes to look and be more like him.
She has new hair that looks like his.
She used Sister Abigail on her best friend.
She’s staring off into space, mesmerized over something.
The two of them together?
Who knows! That’s the beauty of it right now, that there are so many directions they can go and it’s a legitimately interesting turn for both Bliss, a feisty heel, to be aligned with Wyatt, a big nasty monster of a man who has never had any kind of story like this. For her part, Bliss told TV Insider she’s having a blast with it:
“I love anything that is different and out-of-the-box. I love being able to evolve and change the character and spike people’s interest. I think that is what we’ve been doing with The Fiend. Everyone knows I love promos and to be able have a microphone and portray a character. It’s my favorite thing to do, so the fact I was able to try something new I’m having a lot of fun and excited to see where it goes.”
You and me both.
