Doudrop Reveals Changing Her WWE Name Has Been Discussed

Doudrop could soon be a thing of the past in WWE

Could another WWE star be set to undergo a name change? 

Doudrop was originally Piper Niven in WWE, having also formerly been Viper on the independent wrestling scene, and she revealed to Inside The Ropes that she and Triple H have discussed a possible 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]. When I was first [given] Doudrop, I obviously initially had no idea what to do," Doudrop said. 

"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 kinda just wanted to get more of 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."

Niven was renamed Doudrop after she moved to the main roster in 2021. She is currently a member of the Monday Night Raw roster in a tag team with Nikki A.S.H.
