Liv Morgan spoke with CBS New York about her upcoming Elimination Chamber match, her storyline with Lana, her character, and more. You can read the highlights below.
On seeing herself on the front page of WWE’s website:
Never would have thought, but I hoped. It’s so crazy, every day I have “pinch me” moments. Because like you said, I grew up a huge WWE fan. That’s all I wanted, and that’s all I still want, even though I’m in it. So I’m just grateful. I don’t even know another word. I’m just so grateful to be in the center of the photo. I want to see it. I’m grateful, I’m grateful. There’s a lot of amazing women in that match, Shayna, Asuka, Nattie, The Doo Doo Riott Squad, that I’m mad at now. It’s cool.
On whether The Riott Squad discussed being split up before:
We were so living in the moment and we were having so much fun that those conversations didn’t really all come up. I think we all knew in the back of our minds one day this would happen. But we didn’t really speak on it because we enjoyed being together and the friendships that grew on the scenes and behind the scenes were just so strong and so pure. We just wanted to keep living in the moment, because it was beautiful. I don’t know how to describe it. They were my sisters, and now it’s the other end of the spectrum. And it happened in the blink of an eye, so it’s just crazy trying to adjust.
On her new character:
I just think it was time for the character to evolve. As much as I loved having pink hair and a blue tongue, you need to grow up at some point. So I think it was just time for Liv to grow up. So I had a nine-month hiatus of self-discovery and hair dye. I’m just trying to find my footing and my place as a woman in the world and in this business. And it’s different for me, and you guys are seeing the growth live on TV. What it is now may not be how it is in a couple months. But I’m just trying to grow, and I’m not fully there yet.
On her storyline with Lana:
I was like, “It’s crazy enough, I’ll do it.” I was excited. I was excited, there’s nothing like that that’s ever been done. In the company before, Lana and Lashley, they were taking up a very large portion of the screen time on Raw. So, for me, being off of TV for nine months to, now you’re in the main-event picture, in the main-event spotlight, I was like, “Okay, cool. I’m ready for it. Thank you for the opportunity.”
