Liv Morgan has seen a significant amount of growth over the past couple of years. Since 2015, she has honed her craft and truly became her best version right now. Morgan also opened up about growing up in an abusive family.
Morgan won the Money In The Bank match and then cashed it in on Ronda Rousey on the same night. She finally achieved her lifelong dream and became the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
While speaking to BT Sport’s Ariel Helwani, the Smackdown Women’s Champion opened up about growing up in an abusive family and explained how she broke the cycle.
“Not all of them. Some I haven’t spoken to in years, but most of my family lives in Florida now. I’m really close with three. I have a good relationship with my mother. But yeah, I take care of them. I guess growing up and being in my environment, I understood really soon, like, this isn’t what I want in my life. It was just very violent and chaotic, not a conducive environment to grow, so, I kind of knew like, I’m going to save my family. That’s kind of how I based my whole entire life, like, what can I do to get us out of this situation?”
So when I saw WWE for the first time, I fell in love, and I was like, this is it. I’m not some hero, but I just always knew that’s what I was going to do. That was my purpose. It was like, I’m going to save my family. I’m going to break this cycle of drugs, abuse and police at my house almost every single night. I was like, this is not going to be my life, and I’m going to also change their lives.”
Morgan also wants to prove her critics wrong with her match against Ronda Rousey at WWE SummerSlam. It remains to be seen whether Morgan will retain her title at SummerSlam or not.
