* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Quite possibly one of the biggest examples in wrestling ever. She's known for playing one of the nastiest and most despicable heels on the roster. She's also famed for never breaking character, making it all the more pronounced whenever she does. Outside the ring Mercedes the person is a friendly and kind woman who her co-workers never have anything bad to say about. Case in point: she reduced a young Bayley fan to tears during the Iron Man match. After the show went off the air, she went up to the girl and presented her with a bouquet of flowers to apologise. A post-match interview with Bayley and Sasha saw her out of character and the difference was astonishing. Even as a face she's more GoodIsNotNice.
