Doudrop recently spoke with Metro UK for an interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, the WWE Superstar spoke about what Vince McMahon told her during their first meeting, how she feels about her name and character and more.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On being pitched the Doudrop name and idea: “When it was first pitched to me, not gonna lei, I was bit like, ‘Ah OK, I’m not really sure about this, but OK’. It did take me a minute to get comfortable with it.”
On what made her grow to like the character: “I saw the kids dancing. We do this thing with the Doudrops, and to see them do that – I was like, I really understand this now,” she said. “I get who Doudrop is and who she’s supposed to be, and I’m super comfortable with it and I’m super happy. I know a lot of people are still resistant to the name change but just give me a couple of months and you’re gonna be like, ‘I love Doudrop.’”
On her first meeting with Vince McMahon: “I met him on the first day that I got to Raw and I was super scared because obviously I’ve been a wrestling fan for the majority of my life,” she said. “He was super cool, he just said, ‘Welcome to Raw, so glad that you could come over, we’re gonna have a lot fun with your character.’ I was like, ‘Oh good, I like to have fun, I consider myself a professional play fighter’, and he was just [laughing and applauding]. ‘So that was a really cool experience! He’s always super happy with me when I come back and seems to absolutely love it when I kill people so I’m just gonna keep doing that!”
