WWE Clash At The Castle is still a couple of months away, but Doudrop has wasted no time in setting her sights firmly on Bianca Belair!

WWE Clash At The Castle – which marks the company’s first UK stadium event since SummerSlam 1992 – is scheduled for Saturday, 3 September, emanating from Cardiff’s Principality Stadium. The marquee matches have been rumoured since the show’s official confirmation, but filling out the rest of the card may be a trickier situation.

Willing to save WWE a job in that regard, Doudrop has issued a challenge to Bianca Belair and the Raw Women’s Championship for the event. The former Piper Niven was a guest on the latest edition of WWE’s The Bump, where she called out ‘The EST of WWE’ for a title showdown in Cardiff (h/t Sportskeeda Wrestling):

“I would love for this to be an annual thing for them [the fans]. It’s no less than they deserve. I have some unfinished business with Ms Bianca Belair and my dream match and my dream moment would be to take the Raw Women’s Championship off her at Clash At The Castle.”

The match, if made official, would mark Doudrop’s third opportunity at the Raw Women’s Championship. She had previously unsuccessfully challenged Becky Lynch for the title at the Royal Rumble earlier this year, as well as an unfortunate attempt at challenging Charlotte Flair last September on Raw.

Doudrop would continue as she discussed the importance of Clash At The Castle for WWE’s audience in the United Kingdom:

“I feel like this is a long time coming because the UK fans are – I know it sounds biased because I come from there, but genuinely they deserve this. They’ve been cheering for us all this time, all these years. They deserve this pay-per-view. And when we go to Clash At The Castle, they’re going to show us all exactly why we should be doing a pay-per-view there every year.”

Alongside the beloved SummerSlam 1992 card, WWE has promoted twelve other pay-per-views in the United Kingdom. The last was the 2003 Insurrextion, held in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. That show saw Triple H make a successful defence of the World Heavyweight Championship against Kevin Nash in the evening’s headliner.
