Viper faces off with Vanessa Kraven during a SHIMMER show in 2016

Before turning into a wrestler, she kept her love for professional wrestling as a secret due to being worried that her female friends thought she was "weird" as they believed that was only a sport for men.[6] It wasn't until she was 15, and when her oldest nephew began to watch wrestling, that Benson's passion was rekindled and she was open about enjoying wrestling.[6] She was introduced to this sport at a training school near her Ayrshire home and, according to her, she debuted at age 16 one year after beginning her training; making accounts with her age, this was in 2007.[6] About her training, she said: "I got beat up, totally beat up. I remember lying in bed the next day, being so sore and in absolute agony, but I just loved it, I had to go back."[6]

She was part of the special program of ITV World of Sport Wrestling celebrated on New Year's Eve 2016, and until April of that year, she was programmed to appear on a revival of the series.[6] However, a month later before filming was set to begin, the project was postponed indefinitely.[6][7] Benson's last match in independent circuit was at Scottish Wrestling Alliance Lion's Den in November 2019.[8]

Insane Championship Wrestling (2013–2019)

World Wonder Ring Stardom (2016–2019)

In 2017, Benson worked in Japan as Viper for the company World Wonder Ring Stardom. On 7 January of that year, at the event Stardom New Years Stars 2017 – Tag 2, she was part of the team "Oedo Tai" with Kagetsu and Kyoko Kimura as a replacement for Hana Kimura who was injured, where she tried to help the team to retain the Artist of Stardom Championship against "Queen's Quest" a team integrated by HZK, Io Shirai and Momo Watanabe, in which they were defeated and they lost the title.[13] On 13 August, she joined Queen's Quest along with Shirai and HZK to face the team "Team Jungle" integrated by Hiroyo Matsumoto, Jungle Kyona and Kaori Yoneyama in a match for the Artist of Stardom Championship at the event Midsummer Champions 2017, in which they achieved to win the title and Viper crown herself champion.[14][15] On 16 September, Viper participated at the event 5★Star Grand Prix 2017 of Stardom, where she draw with Mayu Iwatani both with 10 points.[16] Along with Queen's Quest, managed to defend and retain the Artistic Championship three times[17] before they left it vacant on 15 April 2018 after a draft executed by Stardom, ending their reign with 245.[18] One month before that same year, on 28 March, she faced Toni Storm at the Stardom Dream Slam in Tokyo event in a match for her SWA World Championship, in which the ICW Women's Championship of Viper was also in the line, where she defeated Storm to capture the title, emerging victorious with both championships.[19] Defended and retained the championship twice[20] before losing it in a match against Utami Hayashishita at the Stardom 8th Anniversary event held on 14 January 2019, in which she also put her EVE International Championship at stake, where she was defeated and lost both titles,[21] ending her reign with the SWA Championship in 292 days[22] and with the EVE Championship in 92 days.[23]

WWE (2017, 2019–present)

Mae Young Classic (2017)

In 2017, WWE contacted Benson, asking her to participate in the women's tournament, Mae Young Classic.[6][7] The event took place in 2017 and was an all-women tournament. Benson asked World of Sport Wrestling to release her from her contract to participate in the competition.[24] She competed as Piper Niven since the name she was using was Viper and that was already the nickname of a WWE star inside the company (Randy Orton), deciding to choose that name because she played bagpipes as a child, and Niven is her dad's first name.[6] She defeated Santana Garrett in the first round[25] and Serena Deeb in the round two,[26] before being defeated by Toni Storm in the quarterfinals.[27]

NXT UK (2019–2021)

In early 2019, a rumour started spreading in which it was said and expected that Viper signed with WWE,[28][29] which came out to be true when she appeared and debuted on 27 March episode of NXT UK that year, where, under the ring name Piper Niven, she confronted Rhea Ripley.[30] Niven had her first televised match with WWE after being signed on a special program entitled WWE Worlds Collide on 24 April, which consisted on various matches that involved wrestlers from all the brands; Raw, SmackDown, NXT, 205 Live and NXT UK, this last one was the brand that she belonged to and represented, defeating Zelina Vega of SmackDown.[31] On 19 June episode of NXT UK, Niven competed in a battle royal to determine who would have a future opportunity to face the NXT UK Women's Champion Toni Storm. In the match, Niven was eliminated by Xia Brookside.[32]

Niven was again defeated by Kay Lee due to an interference made by Jinny.[35]

Niven lost to Jinny in a No. 1 contenders match for the NXT UK Women's Championship on episode 7 January 2021 of NXT UK.[36] On 11 March, Niven and Jack Starz defeated Jinny and Joseph Conners in the NXT UK's first-ever mixed tag team match.[37][38]

On 14 June 2021 episode of Raw, Niven was traded to the brand as Eva Marie's unnamed protégé, defeating Naomi in her debut match.[39] The following week on Raw, Marie introduced her as "Doudrop". Later that night, she and Marie were defeated in a tag team match by Asuka and Naomi.[40] At SummerSlam, Doudrop turned against Marie,[41] and on the following episode of Raw, Marie attacked Doudrop during an interview; starting a feud between them.[42] Doudrop made her WWE Main Event debut in September.[43] After defeating Marie twice on 13 and 20 September episodes of Raw,[44][45] on the next episode, Doudrop challenged Charlotte Flair for the Raw Women's Championship in a losing effort due to a distraction by Marie.[46] In October, Doudrop entered the Queen's Crown tournament, where she defeated Natalya in the first round and Shayna Baszler in the semi-finals, but lost to Zelina Vega in the finals at Crown Jewel.[47][48][49]

On 2 May episode of Raw, Doudrop approached Nikki A.S.H. backstage, suggesting to align together, which A.S.H. accepted.[56] The following week on Raw, Doudrop alongside A. S. H. challenged the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Naomi and Sasha Banks in a non-title match, but they were unsuccessful.[57] After the Women's Tag Team Championship was vacated on May, A.S.H. and Doudrop entered a tournament to crown a new champions which began in August.[58] They lost in the first round to Alexa Bliss and Asuka.[59] On 26 August episode of SmackDown, A.

H. and Doudrop made a surprise appearance as they challenged the NXT Women's Tag Team Champions Katana Chance and Kayden Carter for their titles at Worlds Collide.[61] At the event, they failed to win the titles due to interference from Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne).[62] After a tag team match against Toxic Attraction on 6 September episode of NXT,[63] Doudrop went on a hiatus due to illness.[64]
