Q: I imagine if you won the tournament without an audience in the stands it would have been different
Nikki Ashe: To have the opportunity to feel their energy, to feel that connection with the audience, if I see pictures on Instagram of my fans celebrating with me, to feel that connection, that energy, celebrate with them among themselves the audience in WWE RAW, I see them with their eyes open on Shuttered, shocked, shaking hands while lifting the female RAW title, just being able to feel that energy, there’s nothing better for a WWE superstar, listen to the audience how they cheer us on or how they provoke us if you’re one of the bad types. The feeling that the energy of the fans is unique in this world.

Question: The first Nikki Cross we saw in WWE was Crazy Nikki at Sanity, how was this change from Nikki Cross to Nikki ASH made?
Nikki Ash: The first Nikki was the messy Nikki who loved to start trouble and you know during these five years I think it’s been an incredible journey as Nikki Kross has evolved in front of fans and got to RAW and SmackDown after NXT, teaming with Alexa and winning titles with Alexa, in January I have confidence to enter the Royal Rumble and it has been a constant character development over time and in the past six months has been working on the Almost Super stunt and sending these messages of joy, happiness and positivity, and as a fighter it is both a pleasure and a reward to see the path I have taken and to see how people react and capture these feelings that It’s like a roller coaster and then be able to look around and see the belt and see that that ride got me to this.
Question: We know the gimmick is a boom, even Vince McMahon loves your gimmick, how do you feel when he tells you that company bosses are like Nikki Ash?
Nikki Ash: Everyone loves superheroes, Carlos. I remember being inspired by superheroes a lot, watching X-Men cartoons, seeing Spiderman cartoons when I was a girl, as a teenager I loved The Avengers, DC, Marvel movies, series like Jessica Jones and The Boys. All these movies and series and I always thought I like these shows a lot and they all love superheroes.
The most important thing for Carlos, is that I’m on the verge of becoming a superhero, because I can’t fly yet, and I don’t have super speed or super strength, but when I wear the cloak and the mask, I think I can try anything and I like to think that people think they can try Anything and believe in themselves, and I am so grateful that people can relate to me on this level, I am so fickle.
QUESTION: Well, I think you’re already a superhero because the happy world is when you get out in the ring and you can clear that A. Finally, I’d like to ask you to send a message to the entire WWE world in Spain.
Nikki Ash: WWE Universe is in Spain, we love you guys, we miss you guys and we can’t wait to bring our shows to you. And you already know that we always think of you, that we always take inspiration from fans from Spain and all over the world, just telling you that we love and miss you.
