Nikki Cross is one of the mainstays of the women’s division in WWE and after facing a lot of adversity when it comes to booking and not being used well on the main roster, Cross finally underwent a change on an episode of Monday Night RAW a couple of weeks ago.

It was certainly a massive change in gimmick compared to her darker gimmick in the past and fans were definitely shocked by it. Now it seems that they have warmed up to the gimmick.

While speaking on WWE Espanol’s El Brunch De WWE, Nikki Cross talked about her dramatic change in character. She revealed that the new gimmick makes her feel more empowered and confident and that she can take on the world.

“Yes, I feel so empowered. The costume, we wanted to create something that some people can dress as, cosplay. They can wrap a blue or yellow towel and tie it around their neck and they are Nikki Cross. We really wanted to create something that’s so relatable and something that when they put on the cape and the mask, they feel brave and they feel courageous. For me, I get so much confidence. I put the costume on for the first time and I was like I can take on the world. I felt so confident, I just felt amazing.”

Nikki Cross is set to be part of the upcoming Women’s Money in the Bank Match on July 18th at the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view. We will have to see how she will fare in the match.
