WWE File Trademark For “Piper Niven”

Doudrop (Piper Niven)

WWE have filed a trademark for “Piper Niven” hinting that Doudrop could be heading for a name change.

According to PWInsider, WWE have filed a number of new trademarks which include the names Piper Niven, Odyssey Jones and Ivy Nile. The move has led to speculation that Doudrop could be about to assume her former ring name. While both Odyssey Jones and Ivy Nile both currently appear in NXT.

Jones’ most high-profile run to date came in August where he made it all the way to the finals of the Breakout Tournament being defeated by Carmelo Hayes.

Ivy Nile made her NXT debut in September, aligning with the Diamond Mine stable. To date she has remained undefeated, most recently beating Erica Yan on 205 Live.

Eva Marie re-joined WWE in May 2021, promising bring the Eva-lution in a series of vignettes. When Marie made her on-screen return a month later she did so alongside a new, unnamed protégé. Marie later named her enforcer Doudrop.

After debuting in June, cracks quickly began to appear in the on-screen relationship between the pair with Doudrop walking out on Eva Marie at SummerSlam.

Marie was later beaten by her former protégé on Raw after which the two women went their separate ways.

After Eva Marie was released on November 4th, Doudrop began a feud with former SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair. On the December 6th episode of Monday Night Raw, Belair earned the win over her rival via count-out.
