Doudrop has opened up about finding out she’d been called up to the main roster, and revealed that WWE were rather secretive with the plans they had for her.
Doudrop was brought up to the main roster alongside Eva Marie on the June 14 episode of Monday Night Raw, but the plans had actually been put into place over three months beforehand.
In an exclusive interview with GiveMeSport, Doudrop revealed that she found out on March 1 that she was moving to Raw, and was on the plane to the US less than three weeks later.
Doudrop told Louis Dangoor that because she was going to be partnered with Eva Marie, it took some time before she actually debuted:
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.
Doudrop continued by saying that while she knew she was main roster bound in March, she didn’t have any clue that she’d be debuting alongside Eva Marie until the first week of June:
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.”
The WWE Raw star went on to confirm that no other plans were discussed for her prior to her main roster debut, with WWE being “extremely secretive” about what they had in store for her:
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?’
