This week on Main Event, Peyton Royce defeated Nikki Cross in a singles match. Afterward, WWE released an exclusive backstage video, where Nikki Cross expressed the need for a change and confirmed she is officially heading to Raw.
“Tonight, tonight was my chance,”Cross said. “The newest RAW Superstar, Nikki Cross. It was my chance to make an impact on Main Event tonight. It was my chance, and I lost. I lost. Is there something that I need to change here? Do I need to change? What needs to change? Do I just fight from the ground up, scratching and clawing? What needs to change? I’m always talking in the dark, maybe it’s time to step out of the dark and take a long, good, hard look in the mirror.”
Notably, the promo seemed to tease a gimmick change. Fans should’ve expected this after Sanity split up. However, it’s still a little disappointing because she was the most popular member of the stable.
Surprisingly, Cross didn’t show up on either SmackDown or Raw during the Superstar Shake-up, leaving many fans wondering where she would eventually end up.
It’s unclear why the company waited so long to reveal where she would go, or why they chose to do it in such an uneventful way. That is to say, she could’ve been a nice addition to the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match.
Hopefully, this means they have plans for her. The Raw women’s division could use some new stars right now.
