Could a name change be in the works for current Raw Superstar Doudrop?
Doudrop stated that she has chatted with Triple H about a possible new ring name and character change.
“I’ll give 100% full transparency about it, we did have a conversation about it,” Doudrop said while speaking with Inside The Ropes. “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]. When I was first [given] Doudrop, I obviously initially had no idea what to do. It took me such a long time to get comfortable with who Doudrop was, I was like I get this, I’m bubbly and I’m happy and I’m essentially Jojo Siwa.
After a minute, I bought into it, and I got comfortable with it and then [they turned me heel]. I was like ‘I don’t know how to do that.’ There’s so much trial and error that went on as I was going, so it took a minute to figure out who heel Doudrop is. Now that Triple H has come on board, I kind of 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.” (H/T Fightful)
She continued on to say that The Game has been open to hearing her ideas and listening to her input in order to make it a collaborative effort.
“Yes. He was receptive to all ideas. I’m very much aware that there is probably like lots of other people that are looking for changes and such, but I’m willing to be patient and make sure that we’re being deliberate and making sure we know the direction [of the character] and where we want to go.” (H/T Fightful)
Doudrop joined the Red Brand as Eva Marie’s apprentice and right-hand woman in June 2017. She was one of the most popular women on WWE’s NXT UK brand as Piper Niven. Many fans were upset when WWE changed her name because they were trying to downplay her achievements.
Doudrop is currently teaming up with Nikki A.S.H. in the ongoing Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament. The pair will be taking on Asuka and Alexa Bliss on tonight’s edition of Raw in a first-round qualifier match.
