The woman who some are calling the best thing about WWE at the moment - Becky Lynch - received a rapturous reception on her return to the British Isles last night on SmackDown Live.

The Lasskicker came out to respond to Ronda Rousey's promo on Monday Night Raw, where she mocked Lynch for her route to the WWE, and re-affirmed her status as being the 'Baddest Woman on the Planet'.

But Becky being Becky, she always has a fierce rebuttal in her arsenal.

The Manchester crowd lapped-up every single word she uttered as well, and you can't disagree that she dropped some truth bombs on the former UFC champion.

Lynch criticised Rousey for being handpicked as WWE's poster-girl, in the position that she thinks she deserves instead, which on current showings you can't really argue with.

After she was done running-down Rousey, Lynch declared she wanted a fight and offered anyone to step out and face her.

Lynch's open challenge was answered by none other than Nikki Cross, who has been a mainstay on the NXT roster for a few years now, and didn't come up with SAnitY when they arrived on the blue brand earlier this year.

Nikki Cross made her WWE main roster debut on SmackDown Live, answering Becky Lynch's open challenge.

When WWE television last rolled into Manchester last November, Raw saw the main roster debut of the UK Champion Pete Dunne, who challenged Enzo Amore and defeated the then-Cruiserweight Champion - and a similar moment occurred last night.

Currently involved in the hottest NXT feud currently in Aleister Black against Johnny Gargano, WWE took the opportunity to give Cross her main roster bow whilst in Britain, and she didn't disappoint.

Fans went wild for her appearance, but weren't particularly pleased after she was defeated within five minutes by Lynch.

To be fair, some of the criticism of the decision seems pretty unwarranted.

Firstly it seems like Cross may go back to NXT for a while as she's currently embroiled in a hot storyline, and secondly, loss or no loss, she put up a good fight against one of the two current biggest stars on the main roster.

It would have been better if the bout lasted a few more minutes, but unlike Raw, SmackDown is constrained with an hour and 15 minutes less than it's red brand counterpart.

We're certain there's better days ahead for NXT's Twisted Sister.
