On the October 21st episode Friday Night SmackDown Liv Morgan demolished her Sonya Deville as she continued her descent into apparent madness. However, Jim Cornette was less than impressed with how the action played out.
On the show, Morgan took the fight to Deville in ferocious style appearing more and more unhinged as the action progressed. Eventually the match ended in a double count-out with the former SmackDown Women’s Champion more intent on causing chaos and inflicting pain, instead of picking up the win.
After the bell, Morgan continued her assault, eventually delivering a super-plex onto a pile of steel chairs she had loaded into the ring. The match marked the latest evolution in the character of Morgan who had driven Deville through a table a week earlier.
Jim Cornette – “This P*ssed Me Off”
During a recent episode of his podcast The Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette revealed that he wasn’t a fan of how the segment was presented. The legendary manager said that the match “buried” Deville.
“Then here came Liv Morgan versus Cruella Deville. And as I mentioned, I was watching live didn’t have the benefit of fast forward. So I went to the kitchen and made something to eat. Because this miniscule little Barbie Girl is presented as a lunatic kicking the sh*t out of women twice her size is ludicrous. And so I came back with my ham and cheese sandwich, and they got, both of them, got counted out of the ring because Liv Morgan is bashing Cruella Deville’s head over and over into the steel steps despite the fact that you know, if you did that to Cruella she would probably have a brain aneurysm and die.
Then Liv goes under the ring and starts grabbing chairs and is grabbing chairs from ringside and tossing them in the ring and the crowd starts chanting we want tables. Because furniture is more important than the wrestlers they are watching. You know, I bet you that I could buy a table for about 65 $70 but one of those wrestlers cost several $100,000 a year. I think I should just buy the table and just find some goddamn homeless bums to fall through it. It’d be cheaper and that’s what the people want that are buying the tickets. They don’t like the wrestlers, they just want people to fall through tables.
So while Liv Morgan is going to every nook and cranny around ringside trying to find chairs to throw in the ring. There’s Deville having to lay there staring at her, selling, wondering are you ever coming back to me you f*cking bleached blonde bimbo? It buried Deville. She had to lay there and wait forever and then she was still selling when here comes dipsh*t and picks her up and she pushed her to push Cruella towards the ring and Cruella had to roll in on her own while this vapid blonde tw*t is looking for more chairs.
This p*ssed me off. Well, it was so f*cking phoney and ridiculous. And then she gets back in the ring and Cruella has to still sell so that the girl can sit her up on the turnbuckle with no resistance whatsoever and then super-plex her off the top rope onto all the chairs. But goof girl Liv Morgan landed on the chairs too, and turned over and laughed about it because she’s extreme. So now the super-plex bump on to steel chairs does not hurt a 100 pound girl, and that’s when I left the programme for the evening.
We were about 45 minutes into the show, I couldn’t take any more. I came back this morning where I can fast forward sh*t.”
Liv Morgan has been a woman transformed since losing the SmackDown Women’s Championship to Ronda Rousey at Extreme Rules.
