Alexa Bliss is one of the fastest rising superstars in Smackdown after being drafted last July. She’s probably one of the shortest women in the main roster right now, standing only 5’1. We have compiled a couple of facts that will help you get to know Alexa Bliss.
1. She was a Cheerleader
Lexi Kaufman or Alexa Bliss is no different from her fellow WWE Superstars Naomi and Carmella who were both involved in cheerleading before starting their wrestling careers. Alexa was a former division 1 cheerleader and she was part of the elite Step1 All Stars of Ohio.
2. She Almost Died Because of Anorexia
Alexa lost 30 pounds in 6 weeks when she was in high school because of anorexia. Her heart rate dropped to 28 and the doctors claimed that she would have died if she wasn’t brought to the hospital right away. She was unable to compete as a cheerleader when she was still recovering and it made her miss a lot of important events in her junior high.
3. She’s a Professional Bodybuilder
Alexa wanted to find a healthy way of gaining weight and she fell in love with body building and it eventually saved her from her eating disorder. She mentioned that she competed against her fellow Superstar Dana Brooke in body building events in the past.
4. She’s Dating NXT Superstar Murphy
Before getting drafted to Smackdown, Alexa used to be the manager of Blake and Murphy. They were her constant travel buddies and that lead to her developing a relationship with Murphy. They made their relationship public in November 2015 and they have been openly posting things online about each other since then.
5. She’s a Big Disney Fan
It’s a widely know fact that Alexa is a big Disney fan and in one of her live Facebook Q&As Alexa shared that she’s been collecting a lot of Sulley items nowadays. She also shared that she likes rock music and she listens to Aerosmith and Panic at the Disco a lot.
