– As noted, Nikki Cross won a Battle Royal on last night’s WWE NXT to earn the final spot in the Fatal 4 Way for the vacant NXT Women’s Title at NXT “Takeover: WarGames” during WWE Survivor Series weekend. She joins Kairi Sane, Ember Moon and Peyton Royce. Wrestling veteran Mercedes Martinez was one of the competitors in that Battle Royal and she talks to Christy St. Cloud in the post-match video below. Martinez says she’s disappointed in the outcome of the match and not being able to go to Takeover to compete for the title, as she’s been wrestling all over the world and has won all the big matches except tonight. Regarding the winner of the match at Takeover, Mercedes says she won’t speculate on who might win the match but she will tell us who won’t win the match – the person who just can’t win the big matches, Ember Moon.
