SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan has discussed her mixed reactions from WWE fans and compared the situation to that of John Cena’s.
Liv Morgan enjoyed the support from the vast majority of the WWE Universe when she cashed in her Money In The Bank contract on Ronda Rousey to become SmackDown Women’s Champion for the very first time. Since then, however, Morgan’s reactions have been more mixed – ironically with a now villainous Rousey garnering more cheers from WWE fans.
In an interview with Metro, Liv Morgan addressed the situation and says she’s happy that fans are reacting either way to her and says she’d be more than ok with the type of reactions John Cena elicited for years, calling him the best of the best:
“It’s ok! I understand the reaction in a weird way, so I didn’t take it personally, necessarily. The funny thing is, in wrestling, in WWE, all you want is a reaction. So, even though it maybe wasn’t the desired reaction, it’s still polarising. As long as we’re getting a reaction, I’m ok! And I’m still champion, so I’m more than OK!”
“He’s the best of the best, who’s considered the ultimate babyface, went through years and years and years of ‘Let’s go Cena, Cena sucks’. So, if that’s how I’m treated, I will be ok with that!”
Liv Morgan will put her SmackDown Women’s Title on the line against Ronda Rousey once again in an Extreme Rules Match in Philadelphia on October 8th.
