NXT UK star, Piper Niven, announced via her Twitter that she had a bout of Bell’s Palsy. The Scottish wrestler made light of the scare by saying “Who’s got two thumbs, a funny face and has Bell’s Palsy?”
Bell’s Palsy is a health condition in which the muscles on one side of the face become weak and paralyzed. The cause of the condition is unknown but it can often be the result of a viral infection. AEW announcer, Jim Ross, has been very open about his struggles with Bell’s Palsy.
Niven seems to have a positive attitude regarding the condition and joked, “On the plus side, I can now do a pretty smashing people’s eyebrow for the first time in my life so there’s that. ??”
Hopefully, the condition won’t force Niven to miss too much time in the ring. The last time she wrestled was last month on an episode of NXT UK, when she defeated Jinny.
Piper is scheduled to take part in a triple threat match for the NXT UK Women’s Championship at NXT TakeOver: Blackpool II next month.
