Nikki ASH won the RAW Women’s Title last week in a big Money in the Bank cash-in surprise. Then reports came out that she was booed at a house show this weekend. Some were worried that this isn’t a good sign for Nikki ASH’s title reign.
Ringside News reached out to several fans who attended this weekend’s WWE events. We were told that there were some boos for Nikki ASH in Pittsburgh on Saturday night, but not enough to say that it was from any sizable portion of the crowd.
ASH faced Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair in a triple threat match. Rhea Ripley was the biggest babyface in the match judging by crowd reactions. Some fans told us that they did not hear any boos for Nikki ASH, but Rhea Ripley was the overall biggest babyface in the match with the loudest reaction. Others told us that there were some boos, but it wasn’t a “booing her out of the building” kind of thing.
It seems that reports of Nikki ASH getting booed heavily were blown out of proportion. She did receive some boos, but it was mostly because Rhea Ripley was the most over babyface in the match.
One of the many fans we contacted summed up the situation in Pittsburgh as follows: “The crowd was definitely a Rhea Ripley crowd. I can also say Nikki brought the crowd back to her side a bit at the end when she won.”
No fan we spoke to from the Louisville, Kentucky event on Sunday heard boos for Nikki ASH in the crowd.
We will have to see how Nikki ASH’s RAW Women’s Title reign turns out. She had a big week that was followed by a successful defense on the road. It will be interesting to see how long Vince McMahon keeps this title on her and how fans will react to ASH this week on RAW.
