Liv Morgan will team with Raquel Rodgriguez this Saturday at WWE Money In The Bank in a match against Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Match. Before the two MMA stars held the women’s tag team gold, Morgan and Rodriguez were the dominant female duo in the division. Once Morgan went down with an injury, it opened the door for Rousey and Baszler to capture the titles they have long talked about holding.
Before Morgan steps in the ring this weekend, she spoke at a WWE Community event in the London area earlier today. She was accompanied by Shotzi, Michin, Kayla Braxton, and Omos, who was a big favorite with the kids in attendance. Initially, she participated in a panel discussion with some representatives from the Girl Up program discussing the advancement of women in sports and the WWE women’s evolution that has been going on since 2015.
Following the panel’s initial comments, I asked Morgan and Michin, who were participating, what they felt was left to do for the WWE women’s evolution now that the female talent has done so many things, from main eventing WrestleMania to big gimmick matches, like Hell In A Cell and Elimination Chamber.
“It is a good question because it is very equal playing fields right now,” Morgan said. “There’s nothing that the men have done that we have not done, and so I just hope that we just keep getting more opportunity more time. Maybe an all-female show, who knows?”
“Like a weekly show,” Michin interjected.
“Yeah, a weekly all-females show,” Morgan replied. “We have the talent and the roster to do it. But I think just think at this time, we just appreciate being equal and not less than. We are equal to, you know, the men in in our company, which, at one point, they were the focal, and we were the accessory, and now to be seen on the same playing field as them, I think we all just appreciate that and are enjoying that and looking to show the company that they made the right decision.”
Following the panel discussion, there was a brief media scrum with Michin and Morgan. During it, I asked about working with Molly Holly as an agent and if they hoped to move into a producer role when their time in the ring was done. Both women praised Holly for their work backstage, and Morgan said she would love to be a producer, but Michin, on the other hand, felt she would be more valuable as a trainer.
