NXT UK Superstar Piper Niven is suffering from Bell’s palsy, a condition that causes sudden weakness in facial muscles, often partially paralyzing one side of the face.
It can make the affected side appear to droop, which is particularly noticeable in the eyelid and one side of the mouth.
The exact cause is unknown, and there isn’t precisely a cure, although there are treatments that can lessen the effects and duration. The condition usually clears up within a matter of months, although physical therapy can be required to keep the facial muscles fully functional.
In any case, Niven is not letting the condition get her down, at least based on her tweets.
The popular NXT UK Superstar has plenty of support from within the industry, with great positivity from WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross.
