Eva Marie returned to Monday Night RAW earlier this year, with mixed results. Eva Marie teamed up with Doudrop since she made her return to the company. It seems Doudrop thought Marie was retired as well.
Before debuting on Monday Night RAW, Doudrop was known as Piper Niven on NXT UK. Many fans expected her to have the same name on the main roster, but that wasn’t the case.
While speaking with GiveMeSport, Doudrop talked about working with Eva Marie on the main roster. Doudrop stated that she thought Eva Marie was retired from pro wrestling when WWE told her to work with Marie.
“But I didn’t actually know that me and Eva would be working together until the week before my debut and I remember getting the call. Yeah, I got the call and they’re like ‘you are going to be working with Eva Marie’, and I was like ‘What? I thought she retired. It was extremely secretive like for months I had no idea. I was left purely to guess and speculate. They really like to keep all their cards close to the chest, and I understand why because sometimes things don’t work out, and they don’t want you to get excited and then things change… Like at one point I was like ‘you guys know I’m here yeah?'”
Doudrop is no longer associated as such with Eva Marie as their storyline seems to be over now. She also faced off against Zelina Vega in the finals of the Queen’s Crown tournament but lost the match. It remains to be seen what is next in store for Doudrop.
