Liv Morgan has been training hard with a top Raw star ahead of her showdown with Shayna Baszler.
At Clash At The Castle on September 3rd Liv Morgan will defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Shayna Baszler. While Baszler is yet to capture singles gold on the main roster, she was dominant NXT Champion and has recently hit top form once again.
Morgan for her part is still nursing a (storyline) injury to her arm following her match at SummerSlam with Ronda Rousey. However, she is leaving nothing to chance as she prepares for her next title defence.
Footage has now emerged online of the star training with former United States Champion Riddle. The Original Bro revealed that it was Morgan who reached out to him about the session at Daniel Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Orange County.
“We’re here because I’m gonna help Liv [Morgan] train. She asked me, she was very polite about it, she asked me if I could help her,”
Riddle will also be in action at SummerSlam when he takes on Seth Rollins. The rivalry between the pair has hit new heights in recent weeks, with the duo engaging in a wild brawl on the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw.
Liv Morgan has held the SmackDown Women’s Championship since a career changing night at Money In The Bank. After winning the all-important briefcase, she later cashed-in her title shot against Ronda Rousey.
She retained her title against Rousey at SummerSlam in controversial circumstances. In the aftermath, the former UFC star attacked Morgan and the referee, leading to her being suspended and fined.
