Nikki Cross Signs New Contract With WWE

WWE has made it a priority to extend as many superstars as possible here in 2019, and they've crossed yet another big name off the list.

According to a report from Squared Circle Sirens (h/t WhatCulture.com) Nikki Crosss has agreed to a multi-year pact with the WWE. Terms and further details weren't disclosed at the time.

It was noted that Cross' three-year pact that she signed in 2016 was on the verge of expiring. WWE obviously moved quickly to get a deal done with Cross, and now the company has one of its most valuable talents of the women's division around for the long haul.

Cross and Alexa Bliss briefly held the WWE Women's Tag Team Championships, enduring a 62-day reign before dropping them to Kairi Sane and Asuka at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on Oct 4.

Bliss and Cross were initially sent to Raw in the WWE draft, but they were later traded over to SmackDown. The former has been dealing with a shoulder injury and hasn't wrestled since they lost the Women's Tag Team Championships, so Cross has since engaged in singles matches.

Aside from Cross, Randy Orton, Mike and Maria Kanellis, Jinder Mahal, Braun Strowman and AJ Styles are among the many other WWE talents to have signed new deals. With that, AEW faces a greater challenge in trying to pry away more superstars from Vince McMahon and company.

Re-Signing Cross Is A Big Win For WWE

WWE has done a remarkable job in building up the women's division over the last few years, and it's crucial that they keep as many of them around as possible for the long run. Keeping Cross is a huge win for everybody in WWE, and she'll continue to help take the division to even greater heights going forward.
