“You’re gonna lose faith” – Former WWE writer criticizes Alexa Bliss’ booking (Exclusive)
Vince Russo believes WWE has damaged Alexa Bliss’ credibility by repeatedly changing her character over the last five years.
Bliss has performed as both a babyface and a heel since she joined WWE’s main roster from NXT in July 2016. The 30-year-old’s most recent transformation took place in the summer of 2020 when she formed an alliance with The Fiend and became a supernatural character.
Russo, WWE’s former head writer, told Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Dr. Chris Featherstone that fans would stop believing in Bliss if the company reinvented her again:
“The unfortunate thing is the WWE, they just put their talent in bad spots, because after a while, Chris, what’s gonna happen is you’re gonna lose faith. Alexa Bliss had the talk show, then she had the thing with Nikki Cross, then she had the thing with Bray Wyatt, now she’s gonna come back and do God knows what, and that’s the problem.”

From Mickie James and Nia Jax to Nikki Cross and The Fiend, Bliss has joined forces with several superstars on WWE’s main roster. She also performed as a valet for Blake and Murphy in NXT.
Vince Russo clarified that he enjoys Alexa Bliss’ character work on WWE television. However, he disagrees with the way she has been presented.
“After so many misses, you lose so much credibility and it’s really not your fault, because I believe Alexa Bliss is a great performer,” Russo added.
Bliss has not appeared in WWE since she unsuccessfully challenged Charlotte Flair for the RAW Women’s Championship at Extreme Rules in September.
