Sami Zayn “Pitched Hard” For Liv Morgan Angle

Liv Morgan

WWE Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn has revealed how he “pitched hard” for Liv Morgan to join him as part of his “Great Liberator” angle, which has developed into arguably his most successful time in the company.

Speaking out on Liv Morgan’s latest documentary, Zayn would share a clip where Morgan accidentally sneezes on him backstage, praising the former Riott Squad member and making the revelation. Zayn also said he “can’t wait” to see Morgan become Women’s Champion.

“Really enjoyed #LivForever on@WWENetwork. Fun fact, when I first started doing “The Great Liberator” I pitched hard to get @YaOnlyLivvOnce with me, but she got drafted to Raw. There is SO much to her. Can’t wait to see her one day become Womens Champ.”

Zayn would find himself flanked by Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro in the early days of the character, while Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott would find themselves on RAW where the pair would clash on several occasions before reuniting. In an interesting turn of events, though, Zayn and Morgan find themselves on the same brand now, with The Riott Squad being drafted back to the blue brand in the most recent WWE Draft.

Liv Forever is available to watch now on the WWE Network.
