It appears as though there may be some problems for WWE Raw Women’s Champion Nikki ASH after WWE house shows this past weekend.
ASH cashed in Money in the Bank just one day after winning it to become Raw Women’s Champion on last week’s Raw, and she’s now carrying the title into house shows.
The match that WWE has been doing at the house shows is ASH defending the championship against Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley in a three-way.
However, the house show crowds reportedly haven’t been into ASH at all, even to the point of booing her, which could be bad news if TV crowds begin to follow suit.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said:
“The notable thing, both nights, worse in Pittsburgh than Louisville, but it was there both nights, is that Nikki Cross’ superhero gimmick that everybody loves and everything, it’s not working for the house show crowd.
“They don’t take her seriously, she was actually booed in Pittsburgh, not heavily booed, but booed. Louisville I didn’t hear her being booed, but I heard she came out and got a nice reaction, and then once the match started people didn’t wanna see her.
“They just see – and no surprise – they see Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair as big stars, and Nikki is an intruder in the match. And also since she’s the champion she ends up winning, she has to win.
“But that was the one notable thing from everyone I heard from both nights, was that the Nikki Cross thing was not working. You wouldn’t know that from TV, so that’s that.”

WWE has announced that ASH will be on Raw tonight, so it’ll be interesting to see how the Kansas City crowd takes to her and what WWE has planned.
