Backstage WWE News On Liv Morgan Following Arrest

As fans settled into a new episode of WWE SmackDown this past Friday night, word began to spread that Liv Morgan, real name Gionna Daddio, had been arrested. Morgan was reportedly spotted by police near The Villages in Florida, crossing the yellow and white lines on the road several times in her Jeep. When police pulled her vehicle over, it was said to have smelled of marijuana, which is when the officers executed a search of her car. They found a small, plastic bag of marijuana in what was described as a larger, fuzzy, pink bag, along with vape cartridges with an oil-like substance in them. The vape cartridges later tested positive for marijuana.

Daddio was arrested on charges of possession of a synthetic cannabinoid, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug equipment. She was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released after posting a $3,000 bond. You can view her mugshot by clicking HERE.

Fightful reports that there is “absolutely no heat” on Daddio within WWE, and she remains very well-liked. One WWE employee they spoke with said, “Liv has not been on TV, did not alter creative plans, and was honest about the situation; there are no issues with her whatsoever.”

A top talent added, “Everybody liked Liv before, everybody still likes Liv. We’ll get our jokes off, and she’ll get hers off, and nobody will be thinking about it soon enough.”

It was noted that Morgan was bonded out on Thursday and was back to promoting WWE SmackDown on social media on Friday.

Furthermore, while marijuana apparently remains on WWE’s list of banned substances, the company has not tested for it in years. Back in the day, when they were more vigilant about testing for the substance, talents could be slapped with a $2,500 fine. The promotion’s attitude has noticeably shifted, as evidenced by Matt Riddle’s presentation before his release and other marijuana-friendly references on WWE TV.
