WWE Star Requested Clash At The Castle Match, Triple H’s Response Revealed WWE

A WWE star has revealed that they approached Triple H for a match at WWE Clash at the Castle in Glasgow, Scotland.

The upcoming PLE takes place on June 15 in Glasgow, with WWE SmackDown also taking place there this evening.

Scottish-born Piper Niven will face Bayley for the WWE Women’s Championship, although she was initially cautious about asking for a match.

Speaking to Denise Salcedo, Niven revealed that she needed encouragement to ensure her spot on the card, saying:

“I knew Clash at the Castle was happening, but I didn’t hear anything, no whispers on any matches or anything like that, and I was like, ‘I need to be on that card’.

“And honestly, I jazzed myself up for weeks, you can ask Chelsea – Chelsea’s my hype woman on-screen and off-screen, she helps build my confidence because sometimes I’m not the most confident.

“She was backstage with me, and I was like, ‘Okay I think today’s the day, I think I’m gonna ask’. She’s like, ‘Yeah you’ve got this, go on, ask him, you should be on that show’.

“I was like, ‘Okay, cool, cool, cool’. And I walked up to Triple H and I went, ‘I’m here to shoot my shot’, and he just went, ‘Let me guess, it’s about Clash’, and I went, ‘Yeah’. And he went, ‘We’re working on it’.

“I was like, ‘Oh this went well, okay great, thanks’. I had a monologue prepared, like, ‘I deserve this because X, Y, Z’, and it was just, ‘Yeah we’re working on it’.”
