On the latest show of NXT UK, Davenport challenged NXT UK Women’s Champion Meiko Satomura in a Japanese Street Fight for the title. During the fight, she attempted a double foot stomp from the top rope. She couldn’t perfect the landing and ended up hurting her ankle.

Davenport was escorted out of the ring on a stretcher, and Satomura retained the title. Later, Blair Davenport gave an update about her ankle with a photograph on Twitter.

She may be out of action for weeks to let her ankle heal properly.

Doudrop created history when she moved from WWE NXT UK

When Doudrop was competing in NXT UK, she went by the name Piper Niven. However, she adopted her new name after moving to the main roster.

Now, she is the first WWE Superstar who moved directly from WWE NXT UK to the main roster. Prior to this, superstars have gone back and forth between NXT and NXT UK, but no one has made a direct jump without working with NXT first.

Doudrop immediately made her impact on the main roster and took on some of the top talent. After working with Eva Marie at the start, her focus moved to the champions.

Doudrop took on WWE Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch at Royal Rumble 2022. Even though she couldn’t defeat ‘Big Time Becks’, the audience enjoyed a fresh face in the championship storylines. After she lost, WWE booked Lita to face Lynch at Elimination Chamber, seemingly sending Doudrop back to the midcard.
