Liv Morgan has addressed her recent controversial promo on Monday Night Raw, saying that she doesn’t think that she said anything wrong.
On the November 29th episode of Monday Night Raw, Liv Morgan and Becky Lynch clashed in a contract signing ahead of their battle for the Raw Women’s Championship. During the signing, things quickly got heated as the champion ran down Morgan, but the challenger swiftly fired back.
Morgan poked fun at Lynch for crying after her match with Charlotte Flair at Survivor Series, before taking aim at The Man over her contract. The number one contender for the Raw Women’s Title said that Lynch’s “big, fat, greedy contract” was the reason that her friends were no longer there. A reference to Ruby Soho and Sarah Rowe who appeared alongside Morgan as The Riott Squad before both being released as part of company wide budget cuts.
It was suggested in the aftermath of the show that the comment had left a bad taste in the mouths of some backstage. Edge also made reference to the recent release of John Morrison on the same show during his promo battle with The Miz.
Appearing on Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Liv Morgan addressed her comments saying that her aforementioned friends were proud of her. She added that she didn’t believe that she said anything wrong.
“Was it hard for me to say what I said? No because Becky has brought up my friends and my friends not being here. After that segment, I got a text from my friends saying how proud they were and how amazing they thought it was. I don’t think there is any hard feelings anywhere around. I know I’m addressing something that may feel like an elephant in the room or taboo, but these are things that are happening. I don’t think I said anything wrong,”
Expanding further, Morgan said that while it was never her intention to offend anyone, she felt the situation needed to be addressed.
“Everyone is allowed to feel how they want and react how they want. There was not one intention in my mind to offend anyone or make light of any situation, but just address the reality of the situation. I felt like she needed to hear it. She’s on such a high horse right now that I couldn’t wait to yank her down and bring her to reality.”
On December 6th Liv Morgan will challenge Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship. Lynch recently celebrated 500 days as a WWE Champion, heading all of the way back to WrestleMania 35.
