Alexa Bliss revealed a scrapped idea for her feud with Mickey James. Recently, WWE Superstars have had some issues with the writing and creative for the company. Speculation was Neville walked out on the company over what many feel are differences in the direction of his character and his use in the Cruiserweight Division. That said, not everyone holds ill feelings toward the WWE when it comes to how their ideas are used and included in the show.
Alexa Bliss is one of the WWE's brightest up-and-coming stars. She's grabbed onto the business like few female talents before her, and she's currently involved in a feud with Micke James where the two competitors will square-off at the upcoming TLC pay-per-view. The on-screen heat between the two exists thanks to Bliss' desire to refer to Mickie James as old news, going so far as to put a walker and diapers in her dressing room.
According to an interview with Channel Guide Magazine, she revealed that originally she pitched to go a lot further, specifically giving James a Life Alert. Bliss explained, “My original pitch was to give her a Life Alert. It didn’t happen, but Nia ended up using a line about it in their match."
Bliss went on to say that she was extremely pleased to see that the WWE considered her idea and found a way to work it into the show. Bliss said, "That’s teamwork right there…WWE creative is amazing. When we have ideas, they always take them into consideration."
Bliss admits that she's not the best at coming up with ideas, but when an opportunity exists she's doing her best to provide input on areas that pertain to her character. "So, creative takes an idea and makes it that much better. They are amazing to work with and so open to our ideas.”
It helps too that Bliss is working with a veteran in Mickie James who Bliss says is very open to trying new things and ideas that might be a bit out of the box. While they're feuding on TV, they've grown quite close.
It's not always bad news in the WWE when it comes to writing and ideas. Sometimes, talent actually gets along and works together to try and come up with the best options for their respective stories. When the company and the talent work together, everyone wins.
