The Raw grappler bravely overcame demons she suffered in her teenage years to become a five-time Women's Champion.

She has also proven to be an inspiration to her fans, helping them to tackle similar issues and offering her support.

Despite all this, she still has some individuals attempting to body shame her and she has reacted furiously to one this week.

A fan on Twitter posted several photos of Bliss’ backside from her days in WWE’s developmental show NXT.

They then compared those snaps to how she looks today.

The person wrote: “Remember last week when all of you Alexa Bliss MARY Sues said that this was just a blur effect and Alexa’s ass was back?

“Well take a look at NXT Bliss and WWE Bliss and then at the edited photo Alexa posted and then the picture she posted today and try to say that again.”

Eagle-eyed Bliss spotted the tweet and instantly hit back.

She responded: “#1. how F’Ing DARE you try to body shame me. #2. All pics except last one are very old. #3 I haven’t been able to control my weight loss lately since being sick a few months ago. #4 all u have to say about my career since 2013 is pics of my butt? I pity u.”

During a 365 feature on the WWE network, the 29-year-old revealed her health had once deteriorated to the point that she might have died.

Bliss said: “I’ve had implants since I was 17, we’re just going to throw that out there. When I had my eating disorder I got down to 85lbs.

“My doctor told my mom, ‘If she doesn’t get admitted she will die’.

“They treated my health symptoms, they didn’t treat the mental side of it.

"The second time I was hospitalised they treated it like a mental disorder and a mental illness and that's when it actually started getting better.

“So, I was very self-conscious about my body and the fact that I felt like a seven-year-old boy.

“There are studies that show it [implants] helps women recover from eating disorders because they feel more womanly and they feel better about their bodies and better about their self-image.

“All the doctors that were in on this one procedure were my paediatrician, my eating disorder doctor, my psychologist, my psychiatrist.

“I will never regret doing that for myself because it helped me get over my eating disorders and my body image issues."
