Alexa Bliss has been unleashing the sinister side in herself on Monday Night Raw, each week under the influence of Uncle Howdy/Bray Wyatt. The dark version of the top superstar is being seen on the flagship show of the WWE since 2020 when an alliance was formed between Bliss-Wyatt. Now, the reformation of the same is expected with the return of Wyatt on WWE TV back at Extreme Rules in October.

However, before turning into a dark character, Alexa Bliss used to be a fun-loving character on TV. Since her entry into the main roster, she has been a multi-time women’s champion and Mickie James was one of those names who’s been on her side as well as featured as a rival.

It’s also no secret that the duo is close outside of the ring and their friendship is still intact despite James being gone from the WWE for a long time, now. Recently, James retweeted a picture of herself making a goofy face. A fan joked that intending to live up to the name that she once handed to Alexa Bliss – Biscuit Butt. James replied to the fan and stated that the nickname would “live forever”.

Alexa Bliss and Mickie James share a long history in WWE

Alexa Bliss and James formed an on-screen alliance in January 2017 after the latter returned to WWE by disguising herself to help Bliss defeat Becky Lynch in a steel cage match to retain the SmackDown Women’s Champion.

After a brief hiatus, the two continued as an alliance starting in February 2018. They officially went their separate way during the 2019 Superstar Shakeup as James was forced to undergo knee surgery shortly after. The two also competed in a feud over the Raw Women’s Championship in late 2017.

After sitting on the sidelines for months, Mickie James was released by WWE in April 2021 amid the COVID-19 pandemic-related budget cuts. She returned to IMPACT Wrestling at that year’s Slammiversary pay-per-view and went on to defeat Deonna Purrazzo to win the IMPACT Knockouts Championship at Bound for Glory. Apart from an alliance with James, Alexa Bliss had also formed alliances with the likes of Alicia Fox, Nikki Cross, Bray Wyatt, and Asuka in her career.
