5 Reasons why Alexa Bliss is being nice to Nikki Cross
Ever since she has been a member of the main roster, Alexa Bliss has been a mean-girl heel. Despite her diminutive size, she mocked Nia Jax, Bayley and Sasha Banks. And when she was champion, she routinely had Mickie James by her side so that she didn't need to get her hands dirty.
But after the Superstar Shakeup, Bliss remained on Raw while Lacey Evans, Cross and Naomi joined the red brand. Nia Jax and Ronda Rousey departed following WrestleMania due to injury while Sasha Banks has been AWOL since 'Mania as well.
In the Shake Up, Bayley and Ember Moon joined the blue brand from Raw. Things changed in the division once Becky Lynch defeated Ronda Rousey for the Raw Women's Title. It took Lynch from SmackDown to Raw but also left Raw devoid of credible threats for the title. Lynch and Bliss have battled over a title before when both were members of SmackDown.
With so much change to Raw's Women's Division, a lot more might be in store if anything is to come from the partnership between Bliss and Nikki Cross. Is it being done for convenience or is it going to go somewhere? Here are five reasons as to why Bliss is being nice to the former member of SAnitY.
#5 She wants/needs an ally
Having someone watch your back is always vital in not only life but also pro wrestling. Bliss has previously had both Nia Jax and Mickie James watching her back at various points in her main roster career, but after WrestleMania this year, she was alone.
If she's is staying heel, a confidante or an ally always works best for Bliss' character. She's not the biggest, but her bark is more believable if she has someone else to do her dirty work and provide the bite. Perhaps it is just a friendship of convenience or perhaps she really just likes the way Cross talks.
Bliss is also great at the craft of creating a character, so it could be that Creative wants her to have an ally or lackey. Certain stars have done well with 'muscle' like Shawn Michaels and Diesel and Daniel Bryan and Rowan. Perhaps Bliss is going to get some unhinged muscle.
