Doudrop revealed Vince McMahon's reaction to her WWE RAW match in a recent interview.

Doudrop has been involved in a feud with Bianca Belair on WWE RAW since the end of last year. A spot from their match saw Belair lift her for a Powerbomb. It earned a lot of praise from fans.

She revealed that one of her matches against Bianca Belair was initially scheduled for five minutes. However, a last-minute change saw their altercation being extended through three segments:

"I knew on Sunday coming into Monday I was having a match with Bianca. And the whole segment was supposed to be five minutes. And I was like 'oh, okay. Well, you know what? It is what it is and I'm going to make it the best five minutes that I can.' I told the universe that morning, I was like 'this match is going to be the best match that I've had. I'm going to blow Vince's mind and he's going to love it, blah, blah, blah.' I get to the venue and things haven't been finished up and time goes on. Things aren't really finalized. And it's like maybe six o'clock and it's like 'hey, you know how you had five minutes? It's changed and now you have three segments."

Doudrop went on to state how she initially panicked over the changes but decided to make the most of her opportunity on WWE RAW. Fortunately for her, Vince McMahon was very pleased with her work. She recalled the incident during her recent appearance on Taylor Wilde's Wilde On podcast:

"I was like, 'what?! Okay!' At first, I was like panic, panic, panic, up until the show starts. I'm not even in gear. And at first, I saw it as a problem and I was like, 'oh my god, what are we going to do? I have to change so much stuff.' But then I was like, 'you know what? I asked for this. And now this is my opportunity to have a really great match and to have the best match I can have.' And lo and behold, as soon as I changed my mindset about it, we went out there and had an absolute banger. And boss-man was very pleased." (h/t WrestlingInc)
