Alexa Bliss has spoken out about the evolution in women’s wrestling and her thoughts on bra and panties matches.
In a recent interview with Charlotte Wilder of FOX, Bliss revealed how in her early WWE days the female wrestlers were limited to what moves they could learn.
“When I first started in NXT, there were certain moves we weren’t required to learn because we were never going to do them. The idea was a catfight. It all changed for me when I was watching a match with Paige and Emma. They did a top rope suplex and we were like, ‘Hell yeah, this is where it’s all going to change.’ It was awesome because it shows our women are athletic; can do what the men do, and can be seen in a different light.” she said.
During a period of time during the 2000’s, women were often seen competing in bra and panties matches. A match type in which the winner being the first to strip her opponent down. The 28-year-old says that she respects the women who competed in these match types but would never do it herself.
“I respect the women who had to do the bra and panties match because I could never do it. Kudos, I couldn’t do it. You’ve got to respect that because they did that, for us to do what we do now.” she said.
