Now in her first reign as SmackDown Women’s Champion, Liv Morgan has gone on to record to demand more opportunities for WWE’s female Superstars.
Signing with WWE in October 2014, Liv Morgan has experienced what it once meant to be a female performer in WWE. Luckily for Liv, while she was coming through the system, the likes of Paige, Becky Lynch, and Sasha Banks helped kickstart a Women’s Evolution in WWE that changed the way WWE viewed, booked, and promoted its female Superstars.
It hasn’t been a complete change, but there’s been a clear improvement surrounding WWE’s stances on this, such as women main eventing premium live events, including WrestleMania.
Liv Morgan is now at the helm of this ship to improve quality for the women’s roster, having dethroned Ronda Rousey for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. She has since called for WWE to dish out more chances for the women to show what they’re capable of, doing so on the WWE-branded After The Bell podcast:
“What I would like to see is more people getting opportunities. I know how long it took for me to finally get my opportunity. I would love to see that with more women. I didn’t know this stat, but I’m like the first woman in four years to hold the SmackDown championship that wasn’t a Four Horsewoman. That was insane. I’m so grateful and proud that I got to do that, but there are so many other talented women on the roster that could have just as much impact if given the chance.”
Liv Morgan joined the main roster in November 2017, forming The Riott Squad with Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan. While she enjoyed some success in the stable, it wasn’t until after her December 2019 return that fans began to truly appreciate Liv Morgan. Riott’s release last June sent Morgan into singles competition, where she flourished.
Morgan’s victory of the blue brand’s Women’s Championship came after she cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase, which she captured the same night. She’s now due to make the first defence of the championship against ‘The Baddest Woman on the Planet’ at SummerSlam.
