Alexa Bliss was selected by Monday Night Raw in Superstar Shake Up and began her rivalry with Bayley , whom Bliss defeated in Payback, becoming the first woman of the new era to win both the Raw and SmackDown Championships.
En route to his revenge on Extreme Rules, Bliss hosted a “This Is Your Life” focused on Bayley . The segment took place in the May 29, 2017 edition of Raw, which had a negative audience record, with 2 million 613 viewers and a rating of only 1.75.
Bliss was interviewed on the Sam Roberts Wrestling podcast and talked about the controversial segment:
“Before it was done, I really did not know if it would be bad or good, I was just excited to do it and to throw my wrists and trophies off the table to make fun of Bayley in the best way I could.
It could be worst:
“When people started singing ‘boring’ and things like that, I remember playing with the names of the actors, saying things like Lady Flapper, Flaps McGaps, et cetera. I was just trying to lighten the mood a bit.
“When an act is dying you have to try to lift it as you can, so I was thinking about making it fun. While it is considered the worst segment in the history of Raw, I think it could be much worse, okay? It was not that bad.
“When things like that happen, I’ve never been the person to blame. No. This is teamwork, and if it goes well it’s because they all did well, and if it goes wrong, it’s everybody’s fault. We are together in this, and one is only as good as the people who accompany him, you know what I mean? One is as bad as the people he is with. It’s a dance and you have to dance it together. “
