– It looks like Nikki Cross could be planning on crashing the party for WrestleMania 35 host Alexa Bliss on the grandest stage of them all next month. As seen below, WWE just posted video of Cross backstage at Monday’s RAW, listening while Bliss revealed herself as the host for WrestleMania.
“Alexa Bliss, Little Miss Bliss, is hosting WrestleMania this year? Wooo, a surprise so perfect. The perfect toy for Nikki Cross to play with. What would she do? Imagine if Nikki messed up her big party. Because Nikki was never invited to these things, Nikki’s never hosted anything, no one ever paid attention to Nikki. But they’ll pay attention now,” Nikki continued laughing.
