When Sanity was brought over from NXT in April 2018, Nikki Cross was not part of the group. Instead, Eric Young, Killian Dain, and Alexander Wolfe were brought over as a trio while Cross stayed in NXT. Cross was eventually brought over to the main roster in November 2018, but was not part of Sanity.
In April 2019, Sanity went its separate ways as Wolfe headed to NXT UK, Dain went to NXT, and Young was drafted to Raw.
Speaking to Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT, Cross discussed her time in Sanity and what could have been.
"With Sanity, I was very fortunate and blessed to be in a position we were in NXT, I was learning from these amazing talents. I was surrounded by such amazing knowledge and they are professionals and they taught me a lot about wrestling on television. What you saw on-screen was how I felt off-screen. The bond that the team had was so much more...we were in it together and fighting together and wanted opportunities and wanted to make the most of the opportunities. All four of us are very driven and ambitious people. It would have been wonderful to see what could have been, but at the same time everything happens for a reason. And no matter what happens, all four of us will always make the most of every opportunity. We've done different paths to that. But we have these great memories in NXT that I treasure. For me, I can look at it and have a lot of fond memories. When things don't work out the way you think they may work out, I think it can be a huge motivator and place a chip on your shoulder, which is a good thing. It almost makes you more determined," she said.
Cross is now teaming with Alexa Bliss on SmackDown. The duo are former Women's Tag Team Champions.
In a different interview, Cross revealed she would be excited to wrestle in NXT UK. You can find her full comments by clicking here.
