Piper Niven, Eva Marie’s new sidekick, got her brand new name last night on Raw. Rather than leaving her with the same name from NXT UK, WWE came up with Doudrop.
The former NXT UK star was introduced last week, albeit without a name, and wrestled instead of Eva Marie. But yesterday, she teamed up with Marie to take on Asuka and Naomi in a MITB qualifying match.
In a backstage segment before the match, Niven tried to introduce herself as Piper…but was cut off by Eva. She was clearly seen moving her lips saying Piper but then Eva said her name was Doudrop, resulting in a WTF facial expression from the British star.
Their partnership went down the drain during the match too as Doudrop did not want to tag back in after Marie tagged herself in earlier. That resulted in Naomi pinning Marie with a roll-up, advancing to the MITB ladder match with Asuka.
