Piper Niven Addresses Potential Partnership With Alba Fyre & Top WWE Star WWE

Piper Niven has addressed a potential partnership with Alba Fyre and a top WWE star.

At WWE Royal Rumble 2023, Piper Niven made her return in the Women’s Royal Rumble match, dropping the “Doudrop” moniker and going back to her NXT name.

However, a year earlier saw Niven’s biggest main roster opportunity when she faced Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship at Royal Rumble 2022.

Speaking with Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, the Raw star reflected on her most significant singles opportunity in WWE today. Recalling how the WrestleMania sign being on fire while she was in the ring wrestling Becky, Piper said:

“Getting to wrestle Becky was great. I’ll probably get to do it again. I remember being in the ring, Becky’s cranking this headlock in on me, and remember hearing her say, ‘The sign is on fire.’”

“At first, I thought she said, ‘We’re on fire,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, Becks, we’re on fire.’ Then she’s like, ‘No, no, no. The sign is on fire.’ I go, ‘What?’ ‘The sign is on fire.’ ‘Oh. Okay. Guess we’re just rolling with this one.’”

Speaking about the Royal Rumble event in general, Niven says the Rumble is her favorite event of the year. She stated:

“Royal Rumble is my favorite event of the year. I just love the unknown and the unexpected.”

“You never know who is going to show up. More than that, you never know what storylines are gonna start. This is where it all starts.”

On the fans’ desire to see Piper Niven team with Alba Fyre and Becky Lynch, Niven stated:

“That makes me feel good. It makes me feel really good. Give the people what they want, goddamnit.”

As previously reported, Niven addressed her long absence from WWE last year ahead of her Royal Rumble return.

Piper Niven is scheduled to face Candice LeRae on the February 27 edition of WWE Raw.
