Nikki Cross is in the midst of a resurgence and her WWE career. As one half of the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions, she is being featured on both RAW and SmackDown alongside her championship partner, Alexa Bliss.
When speaking with Ronda Rousey's website, Nikki details her entire journey in pro wrestling. Specifically, when discussing her time with the SAnitY faction in NXT, Cross is clearly very appreciative of that part of her journey and working alongside so many veterans of the squared circle, "[Killian] has been in the business for 15 years. [Alexander] is the same. He’s been working—similar the years, roughly. And then Eric Young has been wrestling for 20 years. I was lucky enough that I was able to learn from those guys and really, they helped me so much. … Obviously, I’m married to [Killian] and then [Alexander] is still a really good friend, and I see EY [on the road]. The bond of that friendship and those bonds that were formed in those three years, that doesn’t go. That still remains which I hold very dear. Because like I said, I was incredibly privileged to be able to learn from those three guys and just kind of pick their brains, because their knowledge was so good."
Regarding this current phase of her WWE career with Alexa Bliss, Nikki speaks very highly of her on-screen tag team partner, "Me and Alexa discovered that we have really good chemistry, in terms of [how] our personas very much bounce off each other very well. And we just have so much fun together—we’re having a lot of fun right now," she said. "Like I was just saying … anything where we just get to show different elements of the characters—which people might not have necessarily seen before—there’s nothing more exciting than that to me. I think a lot of people are enjoying that. I think people are really compelled by it. They’re intrigued by it and I’m excited to see what’s next."
Up next for Nikki, a match with Bayley on the upcoming episode of Monday Night Raw.
