The ‘Lilly’ doll is a creation that Bliss is glad WWE went for.

As a part of her on-screen program with Windham Rotunda (Bray Wyatt), Alexa Bliss brought the ‘Lilly’ doll into the fold and continued to appear with the doll after Rotunda was released from WWE.

She dove into the creation of the doll during episode #68 of WWE Deutschland. Bliss credited Jason Baker for the creation of Lilly. Baker is behind the design of the puppets for the Firefly Fun House, ‘The Fiend’ mask and other designs and concepts in relation to the backend of Rotunda’s WWE run.

Bliss recapped the ideas she pitched to Jason about the doll and said she’s glad WWE went for it.

Love it, I love it who does all the work on the masks that you see on WWE, all of the — the crown that I wore with the black goo coming out of it. Him and his wife did that and they are incredible talent and any kind of prop work that you see that’s a little extra special, that definitely comes from them. They did a lot of puppets for the Firefly Fun House, Alexa’s Playground, they came out with Lilly and it was really cool because I had texted Jason and I was saying, ‘I really want a doll to interact with’ and he was like, ‘A doll?’ I said, ‘Yeah. I want a doll’ and I was like, ‘I want it to look like someone scribbled her, like a child scribbled her on a piece of paper. She just popped off the page.’ I was like, ‘Button eyes, 3D teeth, want it to kind of look like me but scary’ and they came up with — they showed me Lilly and it was the most incredible thing I’ve ever seen and you know, I was so happy that WWE went for it because I know that it was something special about Lilly and the fact that she has resonated with so many people, especially the younger generation of fans because it just shows that they enjoy her as much as I do and it’s a lot of fun to work with Lilly and it’s just so cool. I always just wanted to have, you know, something that people can just, you know — tangible they can play with and it’s Lilly and it’s awesome.

In early May, Bliss made her in-ring return for the first time since Elimination Chamber in February. She shared that she always gets nervous before returning, but wants to give her all in the ring whenever she gets the chance to do so.

I’m always nervous when I return to the ring for sure because let’s be honest, I’m not the biggest one in the ring. 5-foot-1, hundred-something pounds. I’m not physically intimidating so, it’s a little nerve wracking but whenever my music hits, the nerves go away and I just get excited and just try to go out there and do my best and, you know, give as much as I have physically, mentally, emotionally to the match because we do what we do because of the WWE universe and if that means I win, that’s awesome and if I lose, I learn and I take that and learn for my next match.

This past Monday, Bliss was part of a Fatal 4-Way involving Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan and Doudrop to determine Bianca Belair’s opponent at Money in the Bank. Ripley was victorious and she’ll be getting the title opportunity at the July 2nd Premium Live Event.
