While most fans will agree it was pretty awesome seeing, Eric Young, Killian Dain, and Alexander Wolfe join the Smackdown roster, there was one notable absentee and that was Nikki Cross.
Even Dave Meltzer on a recent episode of the Wrestling Observer Radio made a pretty good point.
“I’m surprised no Nikki Cross. I think maybe they’re going to do something with Nikki Cross and Shayna Baszler because Shayna is with the exception of Kairi Sane, Shayna Baszler is really weak on opponents in NXT but I think she would have been good for that act on the main roster.”
SAnitY can be a babyface team, they could be a heel team either one mixed with all the other teams they’ve got. You know, it’s new matches “
On NXT right now, Shayna Baszler has no real competition apart from Kairi Sane. This week on NXT they did kind of tease a “problem” with her and Dakota Kai. However, really Kairi Sane is all there is for Shayna right now. Well, Nikki Cross, you could argue is really the only other realistic option for Shayna Baszler as a credible opponent right now.
Surely Nikki Cross will join SAniTy at some point, but she is needed more on NXT right now than she is Smackdown.
