Alexa Bliss recently spoke to Metro UK about online hate and about how people on social media don’t understand the tough lifestyle of a WWE star, which often times leaves them physically and emotionally exhausted.
“I feel like a lot of people don’t really understand – nine times out of 10 when you see us performing, we are going on no sleep, we are going on beat up bodies because we do travel four, five, six days a week. We are emotionally exhausted, we are mentally exhausted, we are physically exhausted but we are doing it to entertain everyone else,”
Alexa Bliss continued on, noting that while everyone can have their opinion, it’s disheartening when people target the human being behind the character rather than just the wrestler on the show.
“I agree that everyone should have the right to speak their opinion. But when you talk about us as human beings, people, and not our characters, that’s where the line stops and I don’t feel like that’s OK. But we do it because we love what we do, we love entertaining people. It’s really disheartening and heartbreaking when we are putting our all out there.
“It’s my physical best. I know it may look like my best, but that’s all the energy I had to give that day. I gave my personal all. We’re told how terrible we are and how we should be fired – that’s not nice, and people forget that there is a person behind the character we are portraying on TV,”
Alexa ended by thanking the fans that are supportive on social media, noting that every wrestler appreciates their support.
“There are people that are so nice on social media and appreciate what we do, and we appreciate that appreciation back,. We will always give our all, we will always give every moment to the crowd because they deserve it. They’re spending their money, they’re traveling, they’re doing all these things to watch us so we owe it to them to give it our ultimate best. If it’s not enough for some people, it’s on them I guess”
