Nikki Cross Says Women's Tag Division Is Still In Toddler Stage

Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss made it back to the top of the mountain in the women's tag team division as WrestleMania 36, winning the Women's Tag Team Titles for a second time by defeating the Kabuki Warriors.

Though Cross & Bliss have held the gold once before and they won the belts in front of no fans, it didn't make the moment any less special for Cross.

"The 1, 2, 3 happens and you're celebrating in the ring. In your head, you're thinking, 'I need to get up and do a beauty shot and have that nice picture of getting hands raised in victory.' The emotion was so real and there, I was laughing when I saw it. I couldn't even stand up. It's such a powerful feeling. Now, two-time Women's Tag Team Champion. Still, a very surreal feeling, (it) hasn't totally sunk in yet but it took a really long time the first time we won the championships for it to sink in. So this will be the exact same," Cross said in an interview with Alicia Atout.

"Those ugly cries are always really funny to watch. I was so proud of the match and being able to do this with Lexi. I could say so many good things about her. And getting to do it with the Kabuki Warriors. I got to be in the ring with three amazing talents and I think we put on a match to be proud of. This tag division is still a baby. We're all trying to grow it and develop it. It's been a year, so it's in the toddler stage."

Cross & Bliss already have a successful title defense under their belts, defeating the Kabuki Warriors in a WrestleMania rematch on Friday's SmackDown.
