When Piper Niven was called up to the WWE main roster from NXT UK in June 2021, she underwent a name change, Doudrop.
Many fans didn’t like the change and were concerned with her presentation under Vince McMahon. With Triple H in charge of creative and him making several changes to the product, some fans are hoping she could be getting a name change.
While speaking with Inside The Ropes, Doudrop revealed that she has talked with Triple H about a potential name change.
"I’ll give 100% full transparency about it. We did have a conversation about it. We did have a conversation about it. Because here’s the thing, before it was Vince’s vision and now it’s Triple H’s vision. So it’s like ‘What’s your vision and where do you see this going, are you open to ideas?’. For me, I don’t mind either way. I would just like to make more deliberate steps going forward with [my] character. I feel like for the past little while, things have [been weird].”
She said when she was first given the name, she initially didn’t know what to do with it, and it took her a long time to get comfortable with the character.
“Now that Triple H has come on board, I kinda just wanted to get more a feel of who she is supposed to be and what the options would be as far as different facets of that character or maybe a new character or maybe even an old character. So, we’ll see. As I said, it’s an exciting time."
Doudrop also noted that Triple H has been receptive to all her ideas. She said she understands there are a lot of wrestlers who likely want a change made to their character, so she will remain patient and see what is in store for her character.
