Five Moves of Doom: Alexa Bliss's Signature Moves and Finishers

Posted by Wes Keefer Sunday, May 21, 2017
Weekly PieceIn FIVE MOVES OF DOOM, we break down a particular wrestler's moveset and examine the five signature maneuvers that they perform on a regular basis.

These are the moves that fans watch out for during a match and are usually in a sequential pattern, building up to and including their finishers that typically get the biggest pop of suspense from the crowd each and every week.

This edition will highlight Alexa Bliss, former SmackDown Women's Champion and current Raw Women's Champion. The former bodybuilder has fought her way up the ranks of the women's division in WWE and has quite the resume to back it up. She was a former ring announcer, managed former tag team champions Blake and Murphy, and is a three-time champion in WWE. She is constantly evolving as a WWE superstar, recently adding high-flying top rope moves to her set.

ALEXA BLISS'S FIVE MOVES OF DOOM

1. Chokehold STO

Bliss applies a chokehold on an opponent, then sweeps their leg and drops them. This is Bliss's signature move and is sometimes followed by rope-assisted stomps to the grounded opponent.

2. Blissful Curb Stomp

A face-down opponent is laying near the ropes. Bliss will step on them and use the rope for balance. With one foot in the middle of their back, she places the other foot on their head and stomps. Sidenote: I am shocked a little that this has not been banned by WWE.


3. Glitter Blizzard

This move is basically a leg trap sunset flip or also known as sunset flip powerbomb. This move sees the wrestler bend over and place their opponent in a standing head scissors. However, the wrestler moves forward slightly so the opponent's midsection is between the wrestler's thighs instead of their head. The wrestler wraps their arms around the opponent's midsection in a waistlock, then jumps and rolls forward, under the opponent's legs, and into a seated position, forcing the opponent to fall back to the mat. The resulting position can lead to a sitout pin. I give credit to Bliss, as she has adapted to using some very dangerous moves.


4. Bliss DDT

Bliss applies a a front facelock on opponent. She then jumps down onto their back, swinging their legs forward, bending the opponent, and driving them down to the mat face, forehead, or head first. Bliss's version is slightly different, as she doesn't swing her leg as much and simply drops her opponent's face into the mat.


5. Twisted Bliss

This is similar to a rounding moonsault. Bliss's variation of this move sees the attacker facing the prone opponent with the attacker leaping forward into the air rotating their body in a semi-circle to end up-side down as if doing a midair cartwheel then landing on the opponent chest first.
