Nikki Cross signs new WWE contract
Nikki Cross has signed a new multi-year deal with WWE, the typically on-the-money Squad Circle Sirens are reporting.
Cross originally signed a three-year deal upon joining the WWE Performance Center in 2016. Per Squared Circle Sirens, this was set to expire soon, so the company made moves to secure the rising performer long-term. There's no word on the precise length of the new deal yet.
This Sunday's Survivor Series 2019 pay-per-view will see Cross team with brandmates Sasha Banks, Carmella, Dana Brooke, and Lacey Evans to face NXT and Raw opponents in the women's 5-on-5-on-5 elimination match. She's still doing well for herself on the main roster, despite losing her tag team partner, Alexa Bliss, to injury.
2019 has been a fruitful one for Cross. The odd couple act with Bliss initially teased a quick split and readymade feud, though they found surprising chemistry as a tandem and held the Women's Tag Team Championships for 62 days. The Kabuki Warriors ended up taking the gold at Hell In A Cell 2019, but Cross has remained on a steady path, even challenging SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley in early November.
