In a captivating episode of WWE Monday Night RAW, the ring was ablaze with top-tier talent, high-stakes matches, and enthralling story arcs. Yet, amidst the tumultuous action, a perplexing scenario unfolded during a high-profile tag team clash.

In a dire quest for a tag partner to face off against WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Piper Niven and Chelsea Green in a non-title skirmish, veteran Natalya found an unexpected ally in Nikki Cross. However, what ensued left the audience in a state of utter bewilderment.

Cross presented herself in a near-catatonic demeanor, showing no response to her surroundings and vacating the ring with a vacant expression.

Unraveling Nikki Bizarre Behavior

Speculations abound as to the reason behind this bizarre occurrence.

While some attribute Nikki's behavior to her eccentric personality, a compelling and potentially more plausible theory has emerged. It is suggested that The Twisted Sister's uncharacteristic demeanor is the result of a hex placed upon her by The Unholy Union.

Comprising Isla Dawn and Alba Fyre, The Unholy Union, a notorious tag team from WWE SmackDown, has recently taken responsibility for a series of misfortunes befalling the Women's Tag Team Titles throughout the year. Could Nikki Cross be the latest victim of their dark arts? It is conjectured that they may be manipulating the division, either attempting to recruit another Scot to their ranks or seeking to preserve Niven and Green's reign until they can usurp the champions themselves.

Turning our attention to a related matter, viewers may have been puzzled by Nikki Cross's unexpected teaming with Natalya. Initially slated to be Natalya's partner was the esteemed Tegan Nox. Unfortunately, Nox was sidelined due to an unspecified injury, necessitating her last-minute replacement.

Natalya reassured fans, stating that Nox’s condition is not severe and her return is imminent. Matt Camp, speaking on RAW Talk, described Nox as being “banged up,” implying a minor injury likely sustained during her intense clash with Lyra Valkyria on NXT.

The chemistry between the two competitors was palpable, resulting in a hard-hitting contest from which Nox will soon recover. For now, the air is rife with speculation, as fans and insiders alike await further developments on these unfolding dramas.

What is clear is that WWE Monday Night RAW continues to be a rollercoaster of emotions, surprises, and unforgettable moments.
