The former SmackDown Women’s Champion is currently facing a spell on the sidelines.
Liv Morgan has been absent from in-ring action since the July 17th episode of Monday Night RAW earlier this year that saw her and her tag team partner Raquel Rodriguez drop the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles to Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville. The following week, Rhea Ripley attacked Morgan, with WWE subsequently announcing that she’d been taken to a local medical facility.
Fightful Select reported shortly after the angle that Morgan was dealing with a legitimate shoulder injury. Whilst being featured in a profile for Muscle and Health, she confirmed said injury, noting that she’s aiming on coming back in the best shape of her life.
“It took me a while to fully understand that proper fuel makes for better athletic performance. I know that’s common sense, but to have the willpower to act on that at 2 am when you’ve got a 4-hour drive to the next show is really difficult. The only places that are open are fast food outlets a lot of the time. I’m actually out injured right now and aside from healing up, my focus has been on my nutrition, so it’s been really exciting honing in on that. I want to come back in the very best shape of my life, so right now, I am eating clean, tons of fresh fruits and veggies. I’m basing my carb intake on the amount of physicality and energy I expend each day. I do believe life is about balance, though, so I still order a cheeky little dessert with dinner sometimes,”-Liv Morgan
Since the title change, Sonya Deville has unfortunately joined Morgan on the injury list with a torn ACL. In the meantime, Piper Niven has declared herself to be Chelsea Green’s new tag team partner, with WWE recognising this as a continuation of her reign.
As of writing, the timeline for Liv Morgan’s WWE return is unclear, however as always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on her injury status as soon as we hear more, and we wish her all the best in her recovery.
