Since then many WWE superstars have congratulated her. Even her recently released husband Damian Mackle formerly known as Killian Dain sent her a heartfelt message via Twitter.

One such WWE superstar who praised Nikki is former WWE champion Drew McIntyre, who took to Twitter and showered his wishes for the new Raw Women’s champ.

“The lassie from Glasgow turned out all right… You’ve done us all proud, @NikkiCrossWWE” Drew wrote.

A month ago the Raw superstar did not have any direction for her singles run in the WWE, and it was only after her ‘Superhero’ gimmick that really helped her move forward in her singles career.

What is next for Nikki ahead of her title victory?

Nikki won the Money in the Bank briefcase the same night when ‘The Queen’ faced the Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley in a physical match-up where Flair emerged victorious after putting Ripley in a figure-8 lock.

She cashed in against Flair and made her the shortest reigning women’s champion. This is something that Flair does not want to be remembered by.

For now, it looks like Charlotte Flair will come after Nikki for the title she lost last Monday. It would be a great match-up to see, given the technical abilities of both the wrestlers.

WWE might try to keep Nikki a champion for a good number of days because of her popularity with the current gimmick and how over she is with the crowd.

It also helps the promotion in terms of merchandise sales. Whatever the case may be, the WWE Universe is in loving the fact that she is the new women’s champion.
