Nikki A.S.H. 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 last month.
Nikki A.S.H. cashed in her Money In The Bank briefcase on Charlotte Flair on last week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. She became the new RAW Women’s Champion and fans were certainly delighted at this.
During recent WWE house shows, Nikki A.S.H. has defending the championship against Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley in a triple threat match.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer stated that Nikki A.S.H. has not been taken seriously by the crowds during the house shows and even got booed by them.
“The notable thing, both nights, worse in Pittsburgh than Louisville, but it was there both nights, is that Nikki Cross’ superhero gimmick that everybody loves and everything, it’s not working for the house show crowd.”
“They don’t take her seriously, she was actually booed in Pittsburgh, not heavily booed, but booed. Louisville I didn’t hear her being booed, but I heard she came out and got a nice reaction, and then once the match started people didn’t wanna see her.”
“They just see – and no surprise – they see Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair as big stars, and Nikki is an intruder in the match. And also since she’s the champion she ends up winning, she has to win.“
“But, that was the one notable thing from everyone I heard from both nights, was that the Nikki Cross thing was not working. You wouldn’t know that from TV, so that’s that.”
With Nikki A.S.H. set to appear on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, we will have to see if she will be receiving the same reaction as in the house shows or not.
