Liv Morgan was placed in the unfortunate situation of having to blame Becky Lynch for her friends (Sarah Logan and Ruby Soho) being fired by WWE. The line caused a firestorm among wrestling fans the moment it happened. Now, WWE has removed the offending phrase from the YouTube video of Morgan’s showdown with Becky Lynch.
Mike Johnson at PW Insider wrote that Morgan’s line likely came from Vince McMahon or somebody on the creative team. He said Edge’s reference to the release of John Morrison probably came from the wrestler himself. Edge is one of the few WWE superstars who get that kind of freedom with their promos.
The line was originally included when WWE first posted the video to YouTube. Now, it is no longer present. Many people thought it was in poor taste, including some still working for the company.
Liv Morgan is on a collision course with Becky Lynch over the WWE Raw Women’s title. Their match will take place on the 17th anniversary of the famous Lita vs Trish Stratus matchup that main evented Raw, December 6. We’ll know then if WWE thinks Liv is worthy of being a champion.
She became the #1 contender for the championship after she won a fatal five-way match on a previous episode of Raw. The fiery promo between the two women this week brought plenty of attention to the feud. Fans will finally get to see them hash it out next week.
Liv Morgan didn’t write the unfortunate promo. Fans mostly seem to understand that. The anger among many comes from the fact that the very company who fired those wrestlers was now using exploiting them for cheap heat.
