Liv Morgan has broken down in tears discussing her huge SmackDown Women’s Championship win at Money in the Bank.
In the opening bout at Money in the Bank, Liv Morgan climbed high above Becky Lynch, Asuka, Lacey Evans, Alexa Bliss, Shotzi and Raquel Rodriguez to claim the coveted briefcase.
Things didn’t end there for Morgan as she wasted no time in cashing in her briefcase on Ronda Rousey after the former UFC star had barely seen off Natalya to retain the gold.
Morgan sprinted to the ring, roared on by the capacity crowd, but the dream almost turned into a nightmare. Rousey caught the popular star in an Ankle Lock and it appeared that there was no escape. However, this would be Morgan’s night as she reversed the champion into a pin to win her first championship in WWE.
Following the win, Liv Morgan broke down in tears while speaking to WWE backstage, describing holding the gold as being “everything”.
“This is everything, there are no words to describe this. I’ve wanted this my whole entire life. It’s overwhelming and it’s surreal. This is the feeling I’ve been searching my entire life for, holding this women’s title, knowing I’m the champion.
“It’s really overwhelming to hear the crowd chant ‘You deserve it!’ is funny because I don’t think anybody deserves anything, but I know that I’ve earned this and that’s what makes it so much better.”
