The New Star? WWE Has Big Plans For This Upcoming Name.

Sounds like a plan to me. The WWE women’s divisions have been shake up like never before in the last few years, with a women’s match actually headlining WrestleMania 35 earlier this year. That shows how much things are changing around the wrestling world and that means the rosters are changing at the same time. Now it seems that a new star may be on the horizon.

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE has big plans for Nikki Cross. Over the last few weeks, Cross has been working with Alexa Bliss, who seems to be stringing her along. The ultimate plan is for Cross vs. Bliss, in what was originally planned to be Bayley’s spot. Bayley has since moved on to a new story and a slightly different character though and that has opened the door for Cross.

Cross can do what Bliss can’t. Check out Cross’ match last night on Monday Night Raw:

Opinion: This isn’t the biggest surprise in the world given where things have been going, though I’m still a bit annoyed at how things have gone for Cross. She was one of the most unique talents that WWE has produced in a very long time and now she seems to be presented as much more of a regular person who doesn’t seem to see what is right in front of her. Why change what was so different and was working so well?

Do you like where Cross is going? Will she win the Women’s Title? Let us know in the comments below.
