Nikki A.S.H. remedied a new defeat during the episode of Raw that aired this week. Queen Zelina in fact managed to prevail at the end of a match dominated far and wide. The career of the former NXT star looked like it was about to take off thanks to the superhero gimmick, which WWE decided to adopt starting earlier this year.
Nikki's progression was very short-lived, as did her reign as a Raw champion. After leaving the title in the hands of Charlotte Flair, she was surprisingly relegated to the tag team division. Nikki tasted her glory once again by winning the duo titles along with friend Rhea Ripley.
Their reign lasted 63 days, before Carmella and Zelina ousted them from the throne. During the latest edition of Legion of RAW on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo harshly criticized the way the federation is handling the Scottish superstar.
The heavy criticisms of Vince Russo: "It appears that WWE is doing their utmost to take away any credibility from the character of Nikki A.S.H. Her glorious past is quickly ending up in oblivion and people find it hard to recognize her now."
"As the weeks go by, Nikki loses further value on the roster. If the situation continues like this, there will be nothing more for her to do. The management wants to push her towards her failure, there are no more doubts at this point," he added to her dose.
During the broadcast, Russo lashed out at WWE's choice to have WWE Champion Big E 'crawl' out of the ring. movie. However, you can't get the champion crawling out like in the case of Big E. Someone like Hulk Hogan would never have lent themselves to such humiliation.
Big E's opponent was Kevin Owens, certainly not an absolute champion."

The group of Serbia sees the Balkans engaged against Spain, probably without Rafael Nadal but with the young prodigy Carlos Alcaraz, and will then be engaged against Norway of the Top Ten Casper Ruud and against the 'freshman' of the Chile tournament, an underdog but which will undoubtedly try to surprise.
