It’s a different way to go. There are all kinds of wrestlers on the WWE roster and it can be difficult for one of them to stand out. In a landscape where almost everyone can have a pretty good match, you need something a little more out there to get some attention. Sometimes a new character can do the trick and that was the case this week. Now we know a bit more about it.

This week on Monday Night Raw, Nikki Cross debuted a new superhero character, including a mask and cape. During the show, Cross spoke about wanting to feel like she was more powerful and donned the costume as a result. Cross has since discussed the idea further on Twitter, clarifying that she does not think she has superpowers, but rather that the mask and cape give her confidence. Her husband Killian Dain also mentioned the new character on Twitter, saying that the idea was Cross’ own creation.

There is a bit to this. Check out the debut of the character, Cross discussing it and a bit of her without the persona:

Asuka & Nikki Cross vs. Charlotte Flair & Rhea Ripley: Raw, June 7, 2021

Opinion: Is this really that ridiculous of an idea? WWE has so many off the wall and over the top characters, both now and in the past, that a person putting on a superhero costume for confidence is not exactly a stretch. Cross has not had much going on in her career as of late so maybe this is the right way for her to go. I’m curious to see how this is going to go and maybe it is in the right direction.

What do you think of Cross? How much will the change help her? Let us know in the comments below.
