If anything could overshadow Becky Lynch with a mic in her hand it’s Nikki Cross.
Making her SmackDown debut or perhaps just an one off in England, Cross answered Lynch’s challenge to any woman in the locker room.
Before Lynch laid down the gauntlet she had a response to Ronda Rousey’s questionable promo on Raw.

After a solid two minute promo from The Man, Lynch closed her promo by proclaiming that Rousey may be the baddest b***h on the planet but after Survivor Series the Raw women’s champion will be her b***h.

Then Cross answered Lynch’s open challenge and the crowd at the Manchester Arena went wild.
Look who wants to take on #SDLive #WomensChampion @BeckyLynchWWE...@WWENXT's #TwistedSister and #SAnitY's own @NikkiCrossWWE! pic.twitter.com/pd8XkjcDJo— WWE (@WWE) November 7, 2018
The match itself was brief and had some strong moments from both women. After it looked like Cross was building some momentum, Lynch tossed her surprise opponent off the bottom rope and transitioned it right into a Dis-Arm-Her submission.
Cross would tap out in short order.
What did you think about Becky Lynch’s promo? Is Nikki Cross’s stay on the main roster going to be a permanent move?
