In 2018, she became the winner of both the second women’s Money in the Bank ladder match and first women’s Elimination Chamber match. Kaufman was signed by WWE in May 2013 and reported to WWE’s developmental territory NXT. She made her televised in-ring debut on the May 8 episode of NXT, playing a glitter fairy gimmick, competing in a tournament for the vacant NXT Women’s Championship. Her first televised appearance on the main roster came at WrestleMania XXX on April 6, 2014, when she played a part in Triple H’s entrance. On July 19, 2016, Bliss was drafted to the Smack down brand as part of the 2016 WWE draft. She later became a two-time Smackdown Women’s Champion and the first women to hold the title twice. She was transferred to the Rawbrand in April 2017 and would go on to become a three-time Raw Women’s champion. She also became the second Women’s Triple Crown Champion in WWE history, making her the second woman to hold all three titles at the same time. She has been involved in sports since the age of five and reached Division I status at the University of Akron. She suffered from a life-threatening eating disorder when she was 15, but turned to fitness competitions to help her overcome it. She competed in track, kickboxing, softball, and gymnastics, and was also a cheerleader at Hilliard Davidson High School.
She won the NCAA Division I Division I Championship in 2010.

The two faced off in the main event on the November 18 episode of NX, where Bliss was unsuccessful in capturing the title. On May 18, Bliss and Blake abandoned Murphy, officially disbanding the trio. On the May 17 episode of NXT, Bliss competed in a triple threat match against Carmella and Nella and Jax. The Vaudevillains were granted a rematch for the NXT Tag Team Championship against Blake and Murphy at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn on August 22, which they won after Blue Pants stopped Bliss from providing a distraction during the match.

On August 17, she competed with Daria Berenato, Mandy Rose, Morgan Morgan and Nikki Glencross in what would be also her last match in NXT. The following week on NXT, she defeated Carmella by countout in a non-title match, which led to Bliss being granted a title match against Sasha Banks.
