Doudrop Reveals Vince McMahon Originally Wanted Her To Dance On WWE Raw

The WWE Chairman wanted to see the former Piper Niven 'shake her ass'

Speaking with Wrestling Inc. Managing Editor Nick Hausman at the Royal Rumble media row this past weekend, Doudrop revealed that her main roster presentation was almost very different. 

During the interview, the Raw star mentioned that Vince McMahon originally wanted her to be an all-dancing babyface when she was promoted to the main roster. 

According to Doudrop, the WWE Chairman pushed her to dance after witnessing her during pre-show rehearsals. 

"It was really funny because he wanted me to come out and dance. I was like, 'I don't know if you looked all up in that C.V., but it did not say dancer'. I was kind of like, 'what am I doing? I don't like this'. Then one day I got backstage and he goes, ‘Goddammit, I see you out there shaking your ass all afternoon, why can't you do it out there?'.

"I was like, 'you've absolutely got me over a barrel there', because seeing me when I am rehearsing. When he said that, he was like, 'I just want the people to see your personality that we see back here'. I was like, 'oh man, you have completely stunned me with that'. I totally got what he meant. And from that point on, that's when I started to get more comfortable with jumping around and dancing". 

In the end, she ended up debuting as a menacing heel aligned with Eva Marie.
