For as long as WWE has been a sports entertainment company many of its top stars have dabbled in acting, some to much greater success than others. It’s something of a natural crossover, so it makes sense when even lifers like John Cena, who notably criticized The Rock for bailing on WWE for Hollywood, ended up basically doing the same thing.
The latest to throw their name out as potentially having a future in Tinseltown? Alexa Bliss, who had this to say to Entertainment Tonight:
“WWE will always be home. That’s always where I’ll be, but I would love to see what happens if I try to go for acting and everything like that. I’ve been working with an acting coach for the last 10 months. Everything that I’m doing right now, character base wise, is a lot of acting, and it’s a lot of fun. But I would love to try that one day, if the cards allow. That would definitely be a passion of mine. But for now WWE is home.”
Bliss is currently playing an evil, dark character alongside a doll named Lilly. Feel however you want about the character/story, she’s fully committed herself to it and done one hell of a job with it in the process. Perhaps a few movie or TV roles isn’t so far fetched for her.
