10 Facts You Didn’t Know About Alexa Bliss
4. WWE Didn’t Know About Her Harley Quinn Outfit
At Backlash in October 2016, Alexa Bliss was part of a ‘Six Pack Challenge’ match designed to crown the first ever SmackDown Women’s Champion. In a bid to stand out from the crowd, she dressed up as Harley Quinn from the Suicide Squad movie released earlier that year.
According to Bliss during a chat with Yahoo Sports, WWE didn’t know about her outfit choice before the pay-per-view.
This was a calculated risk from Alexa, and she planned to ask for forgiveness rather than permission once the show was over with. Thankfully, WWE loved the idea and viewed it as an extension of Alexa’s previous work dressing up as horror star Freddy Krueger during her time in NXT.
Bliss knew that she could pull the Quinn look off, and that it would draw attention from wrestling fans enamoured by Margot Robbie’s portrayal of the super villain in Suicide Squad. She was right, and it remains her most memorable costume yet.
