During an exclusive WWE.com video, Nikki Cross said something needs to change, that she needs to take a look in the mirror and figure out what she’s doing wrong. All of these comments are hinting at a significant character alteration.
Since the Superstar Shake-up, Cross hasn’t appeared much, if at all on WWE programming. In fact, since being called up to the main roster, she’s been one of many former NXT talents lost in the shuffle of WWE. Her former SAnitY faction members have already split and gone their separate ways.
While Cross had the look, charisma, and character to be the most successful member of SAnitY and survive the ineptitude of WWE booking, it looks like not even she’s immune. After her loss on WWE Main Event, Cross shot an exclusive WWE.com video on YouTube and said:
“Tonight… tonight was my chance. The newest Raw Superstar, Nikki Cross… it was my chance to make an impact on Main Event tonight. It was my chance, and I lost. I lost. Is there something I need to change here? Do I need to change? What needs to change? Do I just fight from the ground up, scratching and clawing? What needs to change? I’m always talking in the dark — maybe it’s time to step out of the dark and take a long, good hard look in the mirror.”
From the video, it appears Cross now expects she and her opponents will do more than simply “come out and play.”
Cross also took to Twitter on Saturday morning and wrote:
Time to grow. Oh little naughty one, always time to play, always time for some insanity, always time for chaos but there’s time to do more Show more. I’ll always be Nikki. I want you all to see what’s underneath, to do that…..I might need to take steps out from the shadows.
What’s Next for Nikki Cross?
There are rumors Cross is being considered as the next cast member for Bray Wyatt’s Firefly Fun House. Whether that comes to pass or not is unknown, but one thing is clear from the video, she can do more talking.
This video of Cross speaking to the WWE Universe is more talking than she’s done since being called up. Perhaps, more talking than she’s done since debuting in either NXT or WWE. She’s pretty good at it.
