Liv Morgan had some fighting words for her rival Ronda Rousey, declaring that the former UFC star will have to get creative to defeat her at Extreme Rules.
At Extreme Rules Liv Morgan will put her SmackDown Women’s Title on the line against Ronda Rousey in an Extreme Rules match.
The feud between the pair goes all of the way back to Money In The Bank where Morgan claimed the briefcase in the women’s Ladder Match before defeating Rousey later in the night to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Morgan successfully defended the gold against Rousey at SummerSlam in highly controversial fashion.
Since then, Rousey has been suspended, reinstated, and is on a mission to regain the championship.
Ahead of the bout at Extreme Rules Liv Morgan sat down with Rick Ucchino of Cageside Seats to discuss her rivalry with Ronda Rousey. The champion bluntly explained that there’s nothing she won’t do to claim victory on October 8th.
“There’s nothing that I won’t do. And I mean that so very genuinely. There’s absolutely nothing that I wouldn’t do. And there’s especially nothing that I wouldn’t do to keep this championship. Ronda’s gonna have to kill me. Like, I’ve said it before, but I just mean that so quite literally. You’re gonna have to get creative if you think anything’s gonna keep me down from keeping my championship,”
To hammer her point home, Morgan opened up about her passion for the wrestling business, commenting that she’s prepared to roll through thumbtacks on fire to prove herself.
“There’s a passion about it. You have to love something with your whole entire heart and soul. And I don’t know how else to show my love for wrestling then to like show you guys that I will do anything for this. I will put my body through anything just so you could understand how much this means to me and how much I love this. I don’t know how else to really explain it more than that. It’s like, for you to understand what this means to me, I will roll through thumb tacks, on fire,”
Liv Morgan recently lashed out at WWE over a promotional poster for the event which featured only Rousey, despite her being the challenger.
