Welcome indeed. WWE has so many different people on its rosters because there are so many different rosters. Some of these shows are treated as a bit more important than others, but there is still time for a lot of different people to get some attention. Every now and then you see some of them move around too, and that seems to be the case again, with a new name making their Monday Night Raw debut.

NXT UK’s Piper Niven debuted during this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw. Niven came to the ring with Eva Marie and wrestled in her place, defeating Naomi in less than a minute. Eva Marie then announced herself as the winner and posed. Commentary did not recognize Niven and did not refer to her by name. Niven made her NXT UK debut in 2019 after appearing in the first Mae Young Classic. She had been rumored as a possible enforcer for Eva Marie.

This was a cool debut. Check out Niven showing up and her time in NXT UK:

Opinion: I’m almost scared of what this might be leading to, as Eva Marie having a bunch of people fighting for her is a good idea. At the same time though, it’s a little weird to have a wrestler who has been in WWE for this long as a complete mystery to commentary. I get not being completely familiar with her, but she has regularly appeared on a WWE show. That’s a bit hard to believe, but WWE has done weirder.
