Hey Alexa! So, how does it feel to be featured in the latest single from Bowling For Soup?
“Oh my gosh, it’s amazing! It’s definitely my childhood – and my life’s – dream come true. It’s so, so cool. Bowling For Soup are my favourite band. They were the first concert that I ever went to, and the last one I saw at home, literally the day before I moved to Tampa to go into WWE developmental! Also, if you listen to the lyrics, I think they strike the perfect balance between Alexa Bliss and (Alexa’s real life alter-ego) Alexis Kaufman.”
How exactly did it come about?
“You know, I really didn’t have much involvement in writing or recording the song at all. It started when I gave an interview at a WWE 2K party, where I said that Bowling For Soup were my favourite band, and Jaret [Reddick, BFS frontman] reached out to say that how awesome that was. We just became friends after that. He’s a huge wrestling fan, so I invited him to the Royal Rumble, where I got to introduce him and his family to their favourite wrestlers, which was amazing.
"Then, on my birthday, I was in Toronto when Jaret texted me to say, ‘Hey, happy birthday! Here’s something that we’re working on that I wanted to send to you today!’ It was the song! I totally freaked out. I still have the reaction video on my phone. It was incredible. I mean, you grow up listening to your favourite band, but who ever gets the opportunity to have your favourite band write a song about you – then invite you to come be in the music video! You can’t even explain it. It’s just insanely cool.”
