Nikki Cross won't give up on Alexa Bliss.
For the past several months, Alexa Bliss has been under the spell of Bray Wyatt. the unique relationship between Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss began after Nikki cross, dejected after losing another opportunity to capture the SmackDown Women's Championship, shoved Alexa Bliss to the ground leaving her susceptible to an attack by Bray Wyatt.
Months later, Alexa Bliss told Nikki Cross that despite their friendship, she is choosing Bray Wyatt over her and Nikki Cross talked about her immediate reaction to Alexa's decision on the most recent episode of The Braxton Beat with Kayla Braxton
“I couldn't believe what I was hearing. It took me a while to compose myself and I had to process what was happening but I went on Raw Talk later that night, I got myself together. I'm sorry for anybody who listened to me on Raw Talk, they might hear me repeat some points here but I think it's worth being said.
“To me, that wasn't Alexa speaking. That wasn't her talking. Once I started to really think about it, I lost my temper a little bit on Monday night on Raw Talk. I can just feel myself getting a little bit more frustrated because I'm trying all these different tactics. Text her, call her, turn up at her house. There's no way of getting through to her, no way of contacting her, [and] when I finally do see her, it's just -- we’ve followed it for the last two months. I don't know which Alexa I'm getting. Am I getting my Lexi back, which I know and love, or am I getting this person who is under the spell of ’The Fiend?’"
She continued, “you know, maybe it wasn't the best tactic on Monday to give her an ultimatum. I just felt, at the moment, like I had no other choice and she responded like that which definitely wasn't what I was expecting, so I'm kind of back at square one now and I'm trying to think of all these different things. I just want to shake some bloody sense into her.”
Regarding whether or not she is afraid of the version of Alexa Bliss who is controlled by Bray Wyatt, Nikki cross responded by saying that she is afraid of the uncertainty.
“I just have no idea where her head's at. I don't know what she's thinking. I'm seeing a lot of stuff that I just don't know what to make of. It does scare me because I think we've all been there where we see our friend in a situation and we want to get them out of the situation, but I don't know how to break the spell that ‘The Fiend’ has over her. It does scare me because I know who she is and she’s not this person who lets someone control their actions and control what she's saying. That's just not her as a person. Of course, it's scary.”
Kayla Braxton would go on to ask her how much longer she thinks she can take the blame for what happened to Alexa, to which Nikki Cross would go back and describe their friendship and how many naysayers believed that Alexa Bliss would turn on her and that never happened so she won't give up on Alexa. Nikki posted something similar on Twitter regarding her friendship with Alexa.
We were on top of the world. It wasn’t perfect but we had each other. And then I messed up, and left you alone... pic.twitter.com/tGSWlaMeV2— Nikki Cross (@NikkiCrossWWE) November 14, 2020
