• “I consider myself a professional play fighter” – RAW Star To Vince McMahon
In a recent interview with Fightful, current RAW Superstar Doudrop (fka Piper Niven in NXT UK) praised working for the WWE and her boss, Vince McMahon.
Here’s what Eva Marie’s former companion had to say:
“It’s been so cool. I love him. No, I think he’s such a great boss. We’ve had little interactions and stuff, and the first time I met him he was like, ‘Oh, lovely to meet you. We’re gonna have a lot of fun with your character.’
I was like, ‘Oh, I consider myself a professional play fighter, so I’m all about fun.’ He was like, ‘Oh, this kid.’”
