The company could have stuck to Piper Niven for her considering she has worked hard to establish that name during her time at NXT UK.

Previously, some of the WWE fans had body shamed Niven when she first appeared on Monday Night Raw. Several superstars reacted to the situation and called out the fans for it.

Some Superstars made it personal and claimed that among everyone who was body shaming Niven, none of them could match up to her strength.

When Eva Marie finally returned on Monday Night Raw, she had Niven with her. Marie was supposed to wrestle Naomi, but the former NXT UK Superstar fought on her behalf.

Niven put down Naomi, but instead of being able to take credit, Marie stepped in and took all the credit for herself. It raised questions about the type of partner Niven and Marie might have.

Later it was worked out that WWE has probably paired Piper Niven and Eva Marie up so Niven can wrestle, and Marie can get the credit of it. The idea is to keep Marie out of the ring for sometime.
