During an interview with comicbook.com, Alexa Bliss revealed that her time in NXT prepared her for dealing with wrestling in front of empty arenas. Here’s what she had to say:
Well, actually when I was a good guy back in NXT, when I first started in the ring, I didn’t get reaction anyway as a good guy, so I’m used to having no crowd reaction. I didn’t get any reaction until I became a bad guy, but I guess I got used to it because we would have practice matches all the time in NXT where there wasn’t anyone there, and I think it’s fun. I think it challenges us to try something new and to be extra vocal in the ring and help that dynamic of telling the story,” Bliss said. “We use the fans a lot in what we do and to tell our stories by using the crowd reaction, but when the crowd reaction is not there, we have to add another element to it. And I just think it’s a good challenge and I don’t really see much difference with it, to be honest.
