Over the past year, Liv Morgan has been trying to prove to doubters that she can be a credible singles competitor. Her championship feud against Becky Lynch allowed Morgan to cut more promos on television and make somewhat of a mark in the women’s main event scene. Even in defeat, Morgan is long past the days of being the crazy girl on The Riott Squad. But while Morgan has been making some strides lately, there is still at least one person who believes Morgan shouldn’t even be wrestling.

On the latest episode of the Jim Cornette Experience podcast, Cornette expressed his true feelings towards Morgan. While Cornette seemingly does see potential in women like Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan is someone he’s not so sold on just yet. Not only doesn’t he believe Morgan can outwrestle Ripley, but he also thinks that Morgan shouldn’t even try.

But when Rhea and Liv got in there, again Ripley is everything I like about women’s wrestling and Morgan is the opposite. She’s too small, her sh*t it’s awkward, she’s trying to do sh*t to bigger people and they’re trying to let her, it doesn’t come across. I don’t… she’s too pretty… I just don’t see it.

Cornette is referencing the six-person tag match at Hell in a Cell which saw Morgan and her team coming up short against Judgement Day. Morgan also came up short against Rhea during last night’s fatal four way match number one contender match for the Raw Women’s Championship. As Ripley looks to be gaining momentum it also seems like she’s gained an unexpected fan in Cornette.

Although Liv Morgan wouldn’t be on Cornette’s top 100 wrestlers of all time list, she still has quite a massive fanbase who still cheers her on in matches. All that Morgan can do is cling onto the ones that cheer and used those who boo to motivate her.
