As WWE Women’s Champion, Liv Morgan is the first woman to ever hold a title in this division. Following her historic win at WrestleMania 35, she speaks with The Inquisitr about the importance of winning that belt and how it compares to some of her other accomplishments thus far as one-half of Ronda Rousey’s entourage. She also talks about Raw tonight and what fans can expect from their favorite characters on “The Grandest Stage Of Them All.”
Liv Morgan is the WWE Women’s Champion, and she recently spoke to The Booty-Outs Podcast about her win. She talks about how important this title win is for her career, as well as addressing Raw’s promo.
The long-awaited battle between Liv Morgan and Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship will air tonight on Monday Night Raw, and it’s a chance supporters of Morgan have believed was long overdue. Morgan has been riding the wave of success, winning Survivor Series with Team Liv, outsmarting Lynch at the contract signing, and even holding the title after sending Lynch packing, offering supporters a glimpse of Morgan’s future Champ status. Before everything was said and done, I got the opportunity to speak with Morgan about Lynch as well as Survivor Series, the similarities to Trish Stratus versus Lita, the progression of her promos, and even some Britney Spears and Chucky.
The first event was Survivor Series, which went to Team Liv despite some internal strife. Dana Brooke got into it during the pre-match huddle, which led in Rhea Ripley yanking her hand away in a beautiful moment.
“We were holding a team huddle when Dana said, “Let’s break on Team Liv.” ‘Uh,’ I thought to myself. And she has so much energy that she works around the clock “Morgan said. “She is a dynamo of energy. And, although Rhea really wanted to be a team player, it was just not her way.”
Moving on to tonight’s Championship match, we wanted to know what Morgan’s hardest struggle has been up to this point, and she says it’s primarily been about the opportunity.
“So far, I believe the most difficult task has been the chance. That, I believe, has been the most difficult task. Now that I have it, I realize how large it is. And I’m doing all I can, and I hope Becky is doing everything she can, because I want her to be at her best, and I want to defeat her at her best “Morgan said. “This is something I feel I owe to my supporters. As much as I want it, and I desire it beyond all else, I believe I owe it to my fans to provide them with this opportunity as well.”
Morgan feels that she’s matured and changed so much in just one year, and when asked about Becky’s metamorphosis since her comeback, she thinks the Lass Kicker is a touch crazy these days. “Oh my my, I’ve felt like a new person from the beginning of the year till now.” And I understand that we’re continuously changing and developing, but I feel like a new person today, Morgan remarked. “I still feel like I’m developing.” As we talk, it’s a completely different individual. As a result, I’m ecstatic. I’m really looking forward to seeing where this trip leads me and what occurs next. I get the impression that Becky is deluded. She’s grown so engrossed in herself, her identity, and who she believes she is that she’s gone insane. Becky was someone I looked up to a lot. I felt like we had a lot of parallels in our careers and adventures, so I looked up to her when she became Becky Two Belts and found all of her success. Seeing her has been a source of inspiration for me, but she has changed, and I believe we can all agree on that.”
This sparked a major promo in which Morgan slammed Lynch’s greed, claiming that her large deal is the reason why some of Morgan’s friends have left WWE. Morgan stated that the advertisement did have some genuine passion behind it, and she meant every word she spoke.
“That promo, on the other hand, was brimming with passion. Every week, Becky has taken a toll on me, and I’ve been trying to maintain my cool, keep my composure, and keep my head in the game. So, on Monday, I had no choice but to tell her to ‘Shut up.’ And she continues telling me that I’m being coy. ‘All right,’ I said. You don’t want me to be cautious? ‘All right, here I go.’ And everything I said was supposed to be taken seriously. And, in stating so, I had no intention of offending anybody. Afterward, my pals who I was talking about came out to me and expressed their delight and pride in me. That made me thrilled because it made me feel like I was also speaking in their honor.”
Many fans are hailing her promo as one of the finest of her career so far, and it prompted followers to share prior promos, including ones from NXT. I was hoping for a comeback of brrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
“Oh, my goodness. Never! Oh my goodness, “Morgan stated this with a chuckle. “No, I almost shudder when I look back. ‘Oh my gosh,’ I exclaim. ‘Can you tell me who that girl is?’ Because she was simply a little girl from New Jersey with the world’s greatest chance in front of her. I had no clue what was ahead of me or in store for me. I was only expressing myself. Of course, this is exaggerated. But I was completely unaware of what I was getting myself into.”
Morgan was wearing the black jacket in honor of Trish Stratus and Lita’s wedding anniversary, which was one of the major hot subjects lately. “That was done on purpose. It’s impossible not to think about Trish while wearing a long pleather duster jacket, shorts, a blouse, and boots. I had no idea it was the 17th anniversary of their main event match on Monday, and I’m hoping Becky and I will be the main event as well. It has a strange and symbolic vibe about it “Morgan said. “As a small kid, I remember sitting on the edge of my bed, my eyes transfixed to the television, watching the match live. So having our schedules align in this strange manner gives me more drive for this match that I didn’t need. And it’s so strange. Becky has a reddish tinge to her hair, but I am blonde. It’s insane because I’m going to win.”
Morgan’s timing was impeccable once again as she honored Britney Spears and the conclusion of her conservatorship, and the Oops I Did It Again-inspired apparel was a wonderful complement.
“For a long time, I had the clothing in my purse. I was almost ready to utilize it when Britney Spears was released from her conservatorship. And as a kid, I was probably the greatest Britney Spears fan ever. I had posters and bedsheets. I have every one of her albums. I scrutinized her closet from top to bottom. So when it occurred, I thought to myself, “This is the ideal moment to break out this all-red Britney-inspired ensemble.” As a result, things simply worked out in an odd manner. And I’m overjoyed that Britney gets to live her life her way. I’m delighted for her. It brings me joy.”
So, given she’s a major Britney Spears fan, may we see some more Britney Spears-inspired merchandise in the future? We had to inquire.
“Hmm. I’m a big fan of the Slave 4 U outfit “Morgan said. “I’m not sure whether Baby One More Time is suitable for a championship defense, but I may perform it for a backstage. Perhaps a piece from her Toxic video, such as her naked mesh rhinestone bodysuit. Maybe anything along those lines might be fun. When she’s riding her motorbike, she wears an all-black leather costume. She’s wearing a red wig. That may be more my style as well.”
With so many large franchises arriving over the next few years, such as Marvel’s Moon Knight, The Marvels, Batgirl, Black Adam, Fallout, and many more, we had to ask if there was one she would want to be a part of the most, and there is one she would love to be a part of as soon as possible.
“To be honest, I’d love to be a part of Chucky’s second season. It’s something I’m very familiar with, and I’ve always been a big admirer of. I’d want to appear in a cameo role and get murdered off. I’m not sure. I’d want to be a part of Chucky Season 2 in any way. That would be fantastic, “Morgan said.
On tonight’s edition of Monday Night Raw, which airs at 8 p.m. EST on the USA Network, Morgan will face Lynch for the WWE Championship!
