Nikki Cross has blossomed into her own on the main roster thanks to her partnership with Alexa Bliss. The two-time WWE Women's Tag Team Champions are currently linked together, but that doesn't stop them for trying to achieve success on their own.
Cross recently challenged Bayley for the SmackDown Women's Championship and has used New Day as an example of how tag teams can also have singles success.
"I think New Day is such a perfect example and that’s who I think of. There’s nothing stopping me and [Alexa] from pursuing everything, from pursuing our tag team goals. New Day, how long have they been a tag team for? I think that’s the perfect example, and we love those guys," Cross told Alistair McGeorge of the Mirror.
While there is no guarantee of Evolution 2, Cross does have some dream opponents in mind should the event be announced.
"I’d want to have a tag team match with Alexa because there’s no one else I’d rather that with," she admitted. "It’s not really possible right now but the Bella Twins – we’d have to wait a little while [because of their pregnancies]. Nicole and Brie are just amazing, they’re amazing women. They have been such great role models in the women’s locker room in an in-ring and out of ring aspect. Then you’ve also got Lita and Trish [Stratus]. They were the first women I ever laid eyes on in wrestling. You’ve also got Trish and Mickie [James], and Mickie’s got her history with Alexa so that’s another story you can play. Trish and Mickie, Trish and Lita, the Bella Twins – even Beth [Phoenix] and Nattie, you’ve got the Divas of Doom. There’s some great combinations."
Despite fans and wrestlers pushing for the event, it is unknown if WWE will hold Evolution 2 this year.
Cross is set to challenge Bayley for the SmackDown Women's Champion on the July 31 episode of WWE SmackDown.
