#1 WWE Rumors: Alexa Bliss spoke on her new project
Earlier WWE announced that Alexa Bliss set to host a new podcast named ‘Uncool with Alexa Bliss’. 22nd September is the date when this new podcast goes on air.
Now, the host of this show, Alexa Bliss talked about the details of this show. She said that it’s been a long process to develop this project idea. When WWE pitched this podcast idea to Alexa Bliss, she was not convinced that time. But later she agreed and now she set to host that show.
Alexa Bliss also revealed details of the original plans for the project
As per the initial plans, this podcast was going to be a coffee podcast. The show’s idea was to pick one game and play it on the episode. Later, WWE tested some episode with WWE superstar as a guest and share their stories. WWE like that idea and now this podcast was formed.
Here are Alexa Bliss’ words:
“We did a couple of test episodes with a couple of WWE superstars and us just kind of tried a bunch of things and saw what worked, what didn’t work. And the one thing we loved hearing was everyone’s embarrassing stories. So we were just like, ‘Maybe that’s what it is.’ Maybe the podcast theme, it’s just reliving embarrassing stories from middle school and high school. And it just clicked, and it was a lot of fun, and we tried the new format, and we got some amazing stories from people. And that’s when we were like, ‘All right, this is what we’re going with.”
Alexa Bliss has not done something like this before, and a lot of planning has gone into making it happen
Alexa Bliss revealed that WWE begins shooting for this podcast from the WWE set. WWE was already filmed around four episodes before the pandemic. After this pandemic hits, plans to shoot further episodes are delayed.
Here are Alexa Bliss’s words:
“We were told, ‘Hey, we have to film at home now.’ So I was sitting there, and I was talking to Ryan (Cabrera), and he was like, ‘Oh, you need a whole set. You need something visual, you need something that shows what it’s about, something that’s your personality.’ “And I was like, ‘You know what? You’re right.’ And so we went to my mom’s house, and I started digging out a whole bunch of my old toys, a whole bunch of my old stuff from high school and middle school.”
“That in itself was a lot of fun because we found a lot of interesting stuff that I kept from middle school and high school. And yeah, because that’s the theme of what were you like in middle school and high school and so I was like, ‘This is what I had in middle school and high school, and this was my style.’ And so it just kind of snowballed from there.”
Alexa Bliss finally reveals details of her new project
“It’s different because with the promo, you only get so much amount of time and you say what you want, and then you’re done. And with the podcast, you have to keep the conversation going, and it’s a lot harder than it looks, especially when you don’t know the person. I think the hardest part about it is keeping the conversation going for an hour and then having enough content to get it down to 20, 30 minutes and you want to make sure you have enough content, you want to make sure you sound personable and that you don’t sound stuck.”
