Liv Morgan has given her thoughts on Vince McMahon’s retirement from WWE and Triple H becoming head of creative.
On July 22nd Vince McMahon shocked the wrestling world by announcing his retirement from WWE. Over subsequent days it was confirmed that has been replaced by Stephanie McMahon as Chairwoman and co-CEO alongside Nick Khan.
Furthermore, Triple H has been installed as Head of Talent Relations and head of creative.
Speaking in a new interview with The Mirror, SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan addressed the recent changes. With regard to Triple H, Morgan said that she was “excited” adding that “we’re in great hands.”
Commenting on Vince McMahon’s retirement, Morgan said that everyone was shocked when the news broke.
“We were all shocked. And it felt sudden. But we all owe so much to Vince. So if he felt like it was time, then it was time. We’re also excited to be working with Stephanie and Nick [Khan, the other co-CEO). Stephanie was born into this business, so there’s literally no one better for the job than her.
“We’re all so excited and we’re just ready to go to work. We’re all just ready to take it to the next level.”
Aside from the chaos at the top of WWE, the last two months have also been a whirlwind for Liv Morgan. The fan-favourite won the Money In The Bank Ladder Match and then cashed in her briefcase on the same night against Ronda Rousey.
