Recently, Nikki Cross spoke with Stephanie Chase of Digital Spy where she revealed which wrestler she admired and added moves to her own move set from that particular wrestler as well. She said;
“So the last few months I’ve been training in-ring as much as I can. I’ve been training four times a week, just doing everything I can to be the best competitor that I can be, working on different things and just introducing new moves to the move set.
“I’ve been studying as much tape as I can, watching a lot of matches. I’ve been watching a lot of Ricky Steamboat, a big favorite of mine. Or even watching older matches of my own just to say, ‘Okay, what can I do better? What can I maybe change, what I can improve on?’ Or to be like, ‘Let me keep that, that’s a great little move that that takes people off your feet.’
“It’s been such an amazing period of growth for me as a performer and as a competitor and as a person and just really just throwing myself in and being immersed in a wrestling ring again.”
