Nikki Cross is ready to climb Mount Everest.
It has been a rough few months for Nikki Cross since she is no longer paired with Alexa Bliss because Alexa Bliss is too preoccupied with “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. Where she was once the featured Babyface on SmackDown, now she is only featured on Main Event in a regular fashion.
Recently, Nikki has been using social media as an outlet to express her frustrations, and this week, she got an opportunity to express how frustrating it is for her that she has not been allowed to declare for the Royal Rumble match.
In a new video released on Twitter, Cross compared the Royal Rumble to her Mount Everest and she is looking forward to climbing the mountain but first, she needs to figure out who she has to talk to in order to sign up for the Royal Rumble.
“The Royal Rumble? I haven't been able to declare myself for the Royal Rumble. Is there a sign-up sheet, is it in catering? Who do I need to talk to, TR, HR, LR, BR? Do I need to go talk to Adam Pearce?”
Nikki then shifted her to the lack of fan support in recent months, feeling like she's been betrayed by all of the fans that supported her while she was with Alexa Bliss.
“But just think how surprised you would all be if I won the Royal Rumble. No, seriously, how surprised would you all be? Because over the last few months oh, I've had people outright ignore me now that I'm on my own. You would not believe some of the messages that I get from some of her fans. As if I contributed nothing, as if she won those Tag Team Championships by herself, wrestled all of those tag matches by herself.
“Thank you so much, because I am so much better when I've got a chip on my shoulder. I'm at my best when I'm on the ground looking up at the mountain I need to climb, Mount Everest. Is this Sunday, the Royal Rumble, my Mount Everest? Trying to break out of this is my Mount Everest and when I get to the top, I'm going to do it for all of the people that have ever been looked down upon and ignored. We're going to do it together and we're going to stand tall and look down on all the people that ever ignored us or laughed at us. This Sunday, January 31, the Royal Rumble. Let's find out.”
Nikki Cross was once a major element of the storyline with Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss, but Alexa is now feuding with Randy Orton on behalf of Bray Wyatt, and on the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw, she was on the receiving end of an RKO. Learn more at this link.
