What a nice thing to do. There are a lot of people in the WWE at the moment and that means the company can do a lot of things on television that others can’t. This includes making their own in-arena audience for their television shows, with various NXT wrestlers serving in the roles. That isn’t easy, but one wrestler went out of her way to make it easier for them.
Earlier this week, stories came out about how the NXT talent was not having the easiest time at the WWE TV tapings, mainly due to how long they had to be standing at the shows. With little downtime during the long days and needing to be on their feet, they were rather tired at various points, leading to someone from the WWE office telling them to be more energetic. As it turns out, someone tried to help them do just that.
According to Sean Ross Sapp, Nikki Cross bought pizza for all of the NXT talents who were working as extras during the television tapings. Cross did this as a token of appreciation for everything that the group had to do during the tapings, which was designed to give the shows more atmosphere. The tapings are being held every other week, with another round of tapings taking place this coming week.
I was just told a story by someone talking about how great @NikkiCrossWWE was to the NXT extras after these set of tapings. Said she bought them all pizza as a token of appreciation. What a gem

Cross is rather awesome. Check out what she does in front of the camera as well:
Opinion: This is really cool to hear, though it also makes you see how WWE isn’t exactly making things easy on the NXT wrestlers. Yes they work for the company, but there is a difference between having them do their jobs and making the situation far more difficult for them than it needs to be. Let them sit down and get out of their chairs during an exciting moment, like a real audience would do. It’s not supposed to be easy, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be as difficult as possible.
What did you think of Cross’ generosity? How would you present the fans? Let us know in the comments below.
