Former NXT UK star Piper Niven made her Raw debut this past Monday, and WWE has filed a trademark for her reported new ring name.
Fightful had reported that WWE had discussed giving Niven the name “Doudrop”, and it’s now come to light that WWE did file a trademark for the name this past Monday.
Piper Niven – or seemingly Doudrop now – appeared unannounced alongside Eva Marie and easily beat Naomi, but Marie announced herself as the winner.
The trademark was filed on June 14 with the following description:
Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer rendered live and through broadcast media including television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment information; fan club services, namely, organizing sporting events in the field of wrestling for wrestling fan club members; organizing social entertainment events for entertainment purposes for wrestling fan club members; providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; online journals, namely blogs, in the field of sports entertainment
It seemed WWE hadn’t come to a final decision on Monday because Niven wasn’t named at all (like Omos wasn’t at first), so we’ll have to see if they’ve made their minds up by the next episode of Raw.
