The world of WWE is as unpredictable as it is thrilling. One moment, a superstar is at the pinnacle of their career, and the next, they find themselves in a lull, waiting for the next big storyline.
Such is the case for Nikki Cross, a former champion who once held the WWE Universe in the palm of her hand.
Nikki Cross’s Meteoric WWE Rise
Nikki Cross’s journey in WWE has been nothing short of a rollercoaster. She once soared to the heights of the RAW Women’s Title, portraying an almost superheroic character.
This was a time when she was not just a part of significant storylines but was also a focal point of them.
Her victory with the WWE 24/7 Title was a testament to her growing popularity. However, since that win and her subsequent decision to trash the belt, WWE seems to have taken a step back from pushing Nikki.
The Current Scenario
Despite the momentum she once had, Nikki Cross finds herself in a perplexing situation. Even after reclaiming her original name, Nikki Cross, from the WWE, she hasn’t been given the spotlight she once enjoyed.
This has led many, including Cross herself, to wonder if she can ever reclaim the heights she once reached in her WWE career.
Ringside News reportedly sought clarity on Nikki’s current status. They claimed that a seasoned member of the WWE creative team stated that Nikki Cross is still present at television tapings and is not nursing any injuries.
However, the challenge lies in the limited number of segments available on RAW and SmackDown. With only 16 segments on RAW and 11 on SmackDown, there’s only so much room for superstars.
Nikki’s Recent In-Ring Activity
Nikki Cross’s last in-ring appearance was on the 7th of August episode of Main Event, where she faced off against Tegan Nox in a singles match, emerging victorious.
Since then, she seems to have taken a brief hiatus from in-ring action, but she remains an active part of the WWE roster.
Future Prospects for Nikki Cross
While it’s disheartening for fans to see Nikki Cross not being utilised to her full potential, there’s always hope.
It’s been reported that WWE currently doesn’t have any “positive plans” for her. However, Nikki remains optimistic about her future. She’s been actively pursuing higher education and has clarified that she won’t need to take any time off from WWE to complete her PhD.
The burning question remains: how long will Nikki Cross have to wait for her next big opportunity in WWE? Only time will tell.
But one thing is certain, her fans are eagerly waiting and rooting for her to get another significant break in the company.
