Piper Niven was a woman that WWE really wanted on their NXT UK brand. After a lot of negotiating they were finally able to get her to sign on the dotted line. She has continued as one of the more popular members of the NXT UK women’s division, but she recently revealed something very personal to fans.

Niven revealed that she is suffering from Bell’s Palsy. She posted a selfie along with a line saying: “Who’s got two thumbs, a funny face, and has Bell’s Palsy?” This is the same rare condition that Jim Ross has suffered from for years.

She followed that up with another tweet. This is obviously a serious condition, but at least she can keep her humor when talking about it.

On the plus side, I can now do a pretty smashing people’s eyebrow for the first time in my life so there’s that.


Oh always!

I’ve already got a full heel turn planned out, cool eye patches, a cape and maybe even some kind of Mr Bigglesworth cat!

She might even be planning a Dr. Evil gimmick to coincide with this news. Hopefully, she gets the treatment she needs. The medical world is always evolving and more techniques are being learned. At least Piper Niven’s cheerful demeanor hasn’t changed when hearing about this awful news. We’re wishing her the best as she continues to fight both in and out of the ring.
