Queen’s Crown Tournament finalist, Doudrop recalls she had no idea Eve Marie was still active before they started working together.
The leader of the EVA-Lution used Niven to win matches for her before taking all of the glory. The following week, Marie renamed her new partner Doudrop.
The partnership was short-lived as Doudrop broke free from Eva Marie at SummerSlam, after weeks of teasing a split.
In a recent interview Give Me Sport, revealed when she found out about her call up from NXT UK.
“So I found I was going to be on main roster. I think it was something I think it was March 1, I got the phone call. And it was a really, really quick turnaround like I was I found out March 1, and then I was on the plane to America, maybe March 20.
It was super fast. But I actually didn’t end up on main roster for quite a few months, just because of getting things ready and obviously working with Eva and like things had to coincide. So it took a while but like because of COVID and stuff like that I was going to happy just to get to regular training. That was fine for me,”
During the interview, Doudrop, disclosed her response to the partnership with Eva Marie.
“But I didn’t actually know that me and Eva would be working together until the week before my debut and I remember getting the call. Yeah, I got the call and they’re like ‘you are going to be working with Eva Marie’, and I was like ‘What? I thought she retired.
It was extremely secretive, like for months I had no idea. I was left purely to guess and speculate. They really like to keep all their cards close to the chest, and I understand why because sometimes things don’t work out, and they don’t want you to get excited and then things change… Like at one point I was like ‘you guys know I’m here yeah?'”
Since splitting from Eva Marie, Doudrop made it to the finals of the first-ever Queen’s Crown finals.
