Speaking with Denise Salcedo for Instinct Culture, Piper Niven was asked about her reaction to finding out about the title match.

“So would you like to hear about how it went? I knew Clash at the Castle was happening, but I didn’t hear anything, no whispers of any matches or anything like that. I was like, ‘I need to be on that card.’ Honestly, I jazzed myself up for weeks. You can ask Chelsea [Green], Chelsea’s my hype woman on-screen and off-screen. She helps build my confidence because sometimes I’m not the most confident. She was backstage with me and I was like, ‘Okay, I think today’s the day. I think I’m gonna ask. I think I’m gonna go ask.’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, you’ve got this. Go and ask him. You should be on that show.’ I was like, ‘Okay, cool, cool, cool.’ I walked up to Triple H and I went, ‘I’m here to shoot my shot,’ and he just went, ‘Let me guess, it’s about Clash.’ I went, ‘Yeah.’ 'Anyway, we’re working on it. I was like, ‘Oh, this went well. Okay great, thanks.’ [Laughs]," Niven said.

Niven was then asked whether she was surprised that it worked. She noted that she had a monologue prepared, as she was ready to make her case, but this wound up being unnecessary.

“Yeah, I was like, ‘I didn’t even really need….’ I had a monologue prepared, I was like, ‘I deserve this because X, Y, and Z, blah, blah, blah.’ It was just, ‘Yeah, we’re working on it.’ Good, yes," Niven said.

Niven recently compared Bayley to Shawn Michaels by noting that she brought out the best in her opponents. Check out her comments here.
