‘The Masked Singer’: Fairy, Axolotl booted from competition on ‘Country Night’
LOS ANGELES - Yeehaw! The ninth season of "The Masked Singer" continues to deliver surprising reveals, and this week, fans had to say goodbye to two more contestants.
During "Country Night," the first contestant Axolotl forced to "take it off" and be revealed was WWE superstar Alexa Bliss – and fans went crazy.
Alexa Bliss, WWE star, revealed on ‘The Masked Singer’
The American professional wrestler and five-time WWE Women’s Champion revealed the crippling stage fright she has while singing.
"I am just so proud of myself, because I conquered my fear, and y’all were so great," Bliss told the audience. "Do something every day that scares you, because I did this today, and it was so fun."

Panelist Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg was right from the start, correctly guessing that Bliss, 31, was underneath the mask and costume.
"I’m so proud of you," McCarthy Wahlberg told Bliss. "You can definitely tell you’re comfortable on stage."
Ken added, "Real talk, I’m a big WWE fan, and I’m a huge fan of yours. I just want to say, you’re a true star, and we’re just so honored to have you."
