Scotland has a new wrestling champion to celebrate after Nikki A.S.H. lifted WWE’s Raw Women’s Championship on Monday night.

The 32-year-old from Glasgow cashed in her Money In The Bank contract on Charlotte Flair to win the title, having recently undergone a character transformation into an “Almost Super Hero (A.S.H.)”.

She had won the contract in a ladder match at WWE’s first pay-per-view event back in front of a live audience on Sunday.

Thousands were in the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas, to see Nikki climb the ladder and beat seven other women to the briefcase, which entitled her to a match against the champion whenever she wanted.

She didn’t wait long, taking advantage of the aftermath of a bruising match between Rhea Ripley and Monday Night Raw’s women’s champion Flair to earn her first WWE single’s title.

After winning the title, she tweeted: “I did that. Go tell that little Scottish girl who dreamed of this moment…… the 18 year old girl who joined a small wrestling school in Glasgow, who travelled the world to achieve her dream.

“Go tell her: You did damn good little Nikki.”

Real name Nicola Glencross, she signed for WWE in 2016 and wrestled under the name Nikki Cross until her recent character change.

As Nikki Storm, she was a popular performer on the UK independent wrestling scene, including time in Glasgow-based Insane Championship Wrestling.

She’s one of three Scots on the Monday Night Raw roster, alongside former WWE champion Drew McIntyre and recent addition Doudrop, both from Ayrshire.
