Nikki Cross has technically defeated the WWE Raw Women's Champion in her first match since February.
Nikki has been clamoring for competition and having her last match on Monday Night Raw on February 1, 2021, when she lost to her former Tag Team Championship partner, Alexa Bliss.
Nikki returned to the Monday night show on Monday, May 17 as the sole female lumberjack during a Lumberjack Match between Damian Priest and John Morrison. One week later, she was looking for competition and challenged Charlotte Flair who said that if she wasn't busy facing Asuka she would defeat Cross in two minutes flat.
Because Rhea Ripley was free for the evening and had an issue with what Charlotte had said to Nikki Cross, Charlotte challenged Ripley to do what she said she could do to Nikki and defeat her in two minutes.
During the match, Rhea Ripley would lose her cool and spend too much time punishing Cross rather than trying to get the victory and therefore, the time limit expired and Nikki Cross was victorious in the challenge on a technicality.
After the match, Nikki would take a victory lap around the ring in a very celebratory manner.
