Liv Morgan is one of the mainstays of WWE’s women’s division and there’s no denying that. Liv began her journey with the sports and entertainment giant in 2014 and slowly worked her way up the main roster.

The 27-year-old recently appeared on The Cass and Anthony Show to talk about how she ended up in WWE. Liv reflected on her time as one of the people who trained under Joe DeFranco.

“So I had heard about Joe DeFranco and his training systems, his gym, he trained professional athletes. At the time, he was training Triple H. So I grew up a huge wrestling fan since I was five years old, a huge WWE fan.

“So I went to this gym, and I pretty much told Joe DeFranco, ‘I love wrestling, I want to be a wrestler,’ and so he was kind enough to let me work out at his gym all week.

“I guess he was impressed with, you know, this little blonde, 5’3 girl that had never worked out before that was kind of keeping up with the NFL players he was training at the time.

“Like he’d throw me in cardio drills with them, and I didn’t even know you know that I’m training with these top-tier athletes. But he was impressed, and he was kind enough to pass along my information to the head of WWE, like tryout scouts, and they flew me in for a tryout and I got signed. It was just like the most lucky, meant-to-be, ‘right place at the right time’ thing that has ever happened to me in my entire life.

“I’d like to think that regardless of that, I’ve always would have found my way to WWE. But truly I don’t know, you know, I might still be working at Hooters. Who knows? I don’t know. But I like to think that I would have found my way to WWE regardless.”

Liv and her tag team partner Rhea Ripley are set to square off against WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks and Naomi for their titles tomorrow night on RAW.
