Nikki Cross is a popular name in the world of professional wrestling. Since making her debut in 2016, Cross has captured the audience with her dark and thrilling character. Throughout her NXT run, she portrayed her bizarre character, which was very much liked by the audience. Nikki truly made a name for herself during her time at NXT, which further helped in her career.
Upon her main roster arrival, she quickly inserted herself with Alexa Bliss. Cross and Bliss together dominated the women’s tag division and even held the Women’s Tag Team Championships twice. With her unmatched charisma and loving personality, Cross instantly became a fan favorite.
Apart from her varied in-ring career, Nikki is not only a professional wrestler, but she is also highly skilled in the field of education.

Nikki also completed her dissertation in Women’s wrestling earlier in 2023. She completed her degree in both and even went to the University of Edinburgh to get her degree. Her husband Damian Mackle (fka Killian Dain in WWE) and her mother attended her graduation day, seeing Nikki walk off the stage with the degree. Cross is also a published author, besides contemplating her doctorate.
Nikki Cross horrifies everyone with her bizarre new Gimmick
Former RAW Women’s Champion Nikki Cross is frequently horrifically seen on RAW. The former Money in the Bank winner is seen stuck in between her matches with a constant facial expression. She is seen in the middle of the ring, emotionless, portraying a bizarre figure of her own. Her recent return with such incidents made her go viral on the net, with fans being shocked by her transformation.

There are a lot of speculations going around about the new character Cross has adapted. According to many fans, this angle might later involve Alexa Bliss’s return to the frame. Upon Bliss’ return, the duo would reunite after a long time. Many even speculate that this might end up with Nikki aligning with her husband Killian Dain in an on-screen thrilling tag team.
However, people seem to like this version of Cross and are eager to know what’s next for her career. Despite having a contemplative doctorate and being a high-profile author, Nikki still pursues pro wrestling as her future and tries to do something new each time.
