Nikki Cross spent months working on herself and after several victories over championship-caliber competitors, Nikki Cross now has new gear to embody her new spirit.
Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss have qualified for this year's women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match thanks to Alexa Bliss’ supernatural abilities and Nikki Cross’ super new outlook.
Prior to the match on Monday, June 21, Nikki spoke about how she has finally been allowed to present the new spirit that lives within her and proclaimed that she was fighting for all underdogs no matter their shortcomings.
The gear, emblazoned with butterflies, is reminiscent of that of a superhero and comes equipped with a cape and mask.
Later, Nikki Cross would actually score the pinfall over Shayna Baszler after Alexa Bliss’ mind games neutralized Reginald and Nia Jax.
In a past life, Cross and Bliss were WWE Women's Tag Team Championship. Tonight, however, they were fully immersed in their new personas and were able to come together to complete the Monday Night Raw half of this year's ladder match.

Later, on Raw Talk, Nikki Cross explained even more about the outfit and reiterated that she just wants the audience to believe in themselves.
“I know I can’t fly. I don’t have super strength. But the thing is when I throw on this cape, and I throw on this mask, and these wrist gauntlets, this outfit, I feel like I can try anything. I might fail and I might fall down, but here’s the thing, I’m going to keep trying and I’m going to keep getting back up because I have to believe in myself. All anyone can ever do is believe in themselves, and that’s what I want to share with our audience. I just want to share this with them.”
She may not be able to literally fly, but @NikkiCrossWWE wants to share the reason for her new look and inspiration with the whole @WWEUniverse!— WWE (@WWE) June 22, 2021
