There may well not be a sexier character in science fiction these days than Harley Quinn. She hasn't been featured in many of the live adaptations of the DC Universe, but when she has it has been memorable. Mia Sara (Ferris' girlfriend in Ferris Bueller's Day Off) played Dr. Harleen Quinzel in Birds of Prey for a season in 2002, and more recently Margot Robbie had audiences across the globe drooling when she portrayed the character. WWE fans have been treated to a certain diva cosplaying as Harley Quinn recently as well.
This is none other than a newcomer to the SmackDown roster, Alexa Bliss. Tiny, blonde, fit, sexy, and most of all ferocious, there are few women involved with WWE today who bring her sex appeal to the table. Furthermore, there are none who could pull off a better Harley Quinn-inspired outfit and look. It's really something special.
Whether she's decked out in that outfit or not, Alexa Bliss is one of the best new ladies to come out of NXT. She first joined the company back in 2013, spent some time as a ring announcer, worked with former NXT tag team Champions Blake and Murphy, and got close to an NXT Championship herself, but never won. In July of 2016 she was drafted to SmackDown. She recently lost to Becky Lynch for the SmackDown Women's Championship.
She has come into her own as a performer in WWE since turning heel and her attitude and looks are just a couple of attributes that make her a great presence in the ring. Here are fifteen things you didn't know about Alexa Bliss.
15 15. She Can Sing
14 14. Accused of Being a Ring Rat
For those who are unsure of this term, I'll explain (for most of you I don't have to, I know). A "lot lizard" is a woman who stays at truck stops and sleeps with truck drivers. A "puck bunny" is a woman who follows hockey and tries to date hockey players. A "ring rat" is a female fan or wrestler who sleeps with anyone in the wrestling business. Bliss was called out on TheDirty.com and here is the quote:
“THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, I am currently training with WWE to be a wrestler. We train at NXT in Orlando. A great group of men and women are down here but I have to call out one girl, Alexa Bliss. I wish to stay anonymous but this needs to be out. She is a ring rat as we call it. She sleeps with just about every person who walks in the door here and has slept with trainers, higher ups, wrestlers and whoever else she can get her hands on. I have heard nasty stories I refuse to share. She is cute and nice but is a total slore. She is not very good in the ring but isn’t bad as a manager. I hope she sees this and cleans her act up asap.”
She responded with little more than a tweet:
One Thing my mother always taught me... "Your reputation is something you will NEVER out grow, so make sure it's one you're proud of"— Alexa Bliss (@AlexaBliss_WWE) November 14, 2015
13 13. Origin of the Name "Bliss"
12 12. Experience in Other Sports
11 11. Her Favorite Wrestlers
10 10. Her Workout Music
9 9. How Tiny She Really Is
8 8. Her Boyfriend
This one is kind of painful (very painful), so sorry fellas, but this beautiful blonde babe is taken, for the time being at least. Come on though, did you really think a stunner like Alexa Bliss didn't have a couple of suitors?
7 7. Inspiration for Harley Quinn Gimmick?
There is no doubt that Alexa Bliss has been a far better talent since turning heel last year. As a face she wasn't all that special, but her personality, looks and moves are more suited to her as a bad girl. A fan of comic books and many evil characters, especially Harley Quinn, and after the hype around the Suicide Squad movie, she wanted to try out an outfit that would emulate that character.
6 6. Triple H's WrestleMania XXX Entrance
5 5. She Loves Disney
4 4. Suffered from an Eating Disorder
3 3. Bodybuilding Career
As we just said, her bodybuilding career started out as a way for her to gain some weight after her scare with her eating disorder. She was able to go professional with her new passion within a year, an incredibly impressive feat, and participated in The Arnold Sports Festival bodybuilding tournament a few times. She's actually competed against Dana Brooke, who currently competes over on Raw, in competition a few times and finished her career after finishing fourteenth at the 2013 Arnold Classic.
2 2. Wrestling is the Hardest Thing She's Ever Done
1 1. Got Grounded Over Attitude Era Language
Growing up, her entire family were wrestling fans. She became the most fanatical, but the rest of her family were enthusiasts as well. By her recollection, growing up they were all fans of Stone Cold Steve Austin, but who wasn't, right?
She has a great story about a time when the world of pro wrestling got her in trouble with her parents. Her mother once told her, quite forcefully, to clean her room. While most kids would sulk, walk away, and go clean up, she told her mom she had two words for her: "suck it!" She was grounded for a while and was not allowed to watch wrestling at home; and started to go over to her grandparents' house to get her fix. Grandparents are the best.
