Doudrop has revealed how conversations have been held with Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque regarding a potential name change, an idea he was receptive to.

The two-time WWE 24/7 Champion was renamed Doudrop last summer but with a change in WWE management, this name may soon be on its way out.

Speaking with Alex McCarthy of MailOnline and Inside The Ropes, Doudrop opened up on discussions she had held with the new WWE regime regarding the possibility of changing her name:

“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. 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.”

Debuting on WWE’s main roster last June, the former NXT UK Superstar formed a brief alliance with Eva Marie. Though the duo is now broken up, Doudrop managed to find considerable success, making it to the finals of last year’s Queen’s Crown tournament and challenging for the Raw Women’s Championship at the Royal Rumble.

Continuing, Doudrop recalled how Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque, WWE’s new Head of Creative, was open to hearing her ideas:

“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.”

Previously known as both Viper and Piper Niven, she was one of the hottest stars on the British wrestling scene, finding acclaimed success in EVE, ICW, and ITV’s World of Sport reboot.
