WWE Superstar Liv Morgan has had an interesting past year on WWE television.

After coming off an exciting feud with Lana on Monday Night RAW in late 2019-early 2020, Liv Morgan reunited with Ruby Riott to reform The Riott Squad before being drafted to SmackDown.

The Riott Squad was seen sporadically on television before WWE released Ruby Riott. However, in recent months Liv Morgan's popularity as a singles star has increased on the blue brand.

Morgan has been involved in feuds against Zelina Vega, Carmella, and WWE Official Sonya Deville.

Sportskeeda Wrestling's Rick Ucchino recently interviewed Liv Morgan ahead of the recent Extreme Rules pay-per-view. They discussed topics like the star's current storylines, future aspirations, and favorite moments during her WWE career.

Let's take a closer look at five things we learned from WWE Superstar Liv Morgan's Sportskeeda interview.


#5 Liv Morgan wants to focus on being a singles star in WWE right now

Liv Morgan has spent the majority of her WWE main roster career in factions and tag teams.

She debuted on SmackDown LIVE in late-2017 as a member of The Riott Squad with Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan. The group dissolved in 2019, with each member transitioning into singles careers. Morgan and Riott briefly reunited as a tag team in 2020 before WWE released the latter.

When asked about competing in a tag team once in the future, Liv Morgan said she wants to focus mainly on being a singles wrestler right now:

"I definitely want to focus on being a singles competitor right now. I feel like, just me personally in my career, I feel like that's just where I am mentally at. I want to be in the same conversation as Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Charlotte, and Bayley. That's my goal," Morgan said.

#4 Liv Morgan appreciates the massive support from the WWE Universe

Despite not being prominently featured in WWE programming or winning major matches and titles, Liv Morgan has become one of the most popular female stars on the SmackDown roster.

When asked about her support from the WWE Universe, Morgan admitted that she isn't sure why she receives so much support but hopes she makes the fans proud with her hard work and desire:

"As much as I try and as much as I try to give them everything, there's some things that are just out of my control, so sometimes I feel like I don't give them enough to even want to support me. Or even want to cheer for me, but luckily for some reason, that kind of made it even stronger. I just hope that I can make them proud," Morgan said appreciating the fans.

#3 Liv Morgan might team up with Toni Storm on WWE television

As we mentioned earlier, Liv Morgan has primarily competed as a tag team wrestler for most of her WWE career.

Teaming with Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan in The Riott Squad, Morgan is a seasoned tag team professional. However, both Riott and Logan are no longer with WWE.

In recent weeks, Liv Morgan has teamed up with former NXT Superstar Toni Storm on Friday Night SmackDown.

When asked if she and Storm could become a future tag team, the SmackDown star admitted that she was "sour" about tag teams but might consider the New Zealand star:

"I've been a little bit sour on tag teams ever since the Riott Squad, and I told myself I would not be in another tag team. But if I had to team with anyone, I'd pick Toni Storm. So I'm only open to tag teaming with Toni Storm. I think she's just an incredible competitor. I watched Toni work way before she even got to WWE. I'm a big fan of her work. I just like her work rate. I know she goes out there every single time and tries to have the best match that she could possibly have. And so I just appreciate that quality of her. Also, you know, our hair kinda looks alike. So aesthetically we look cool. I just think Toni's great," Morgan confessed.

#2 Liv Morgan on her recent momentum and desire to become WWE SmackDown Women's Champion

The WWE Universe has been vocal in the past about wanting to see Liv Morgan featured more prominently on WWE television.

When appearing in a significant spot on either RAW or SmackDown, she is often pushed back down the card, much to fans' frustration.

However, this seems to be changing in recent months. Morgan has become a more featured player on WWE SmackDown and had storylines with Carmella, Zelina Vega, and Sonya Deville.

Morgan admits there has been frustration with her booking in the past, but this new momentum does feel different:

"I feel like the past two years of my career, I've had moments where I feel like I've had so much momentum and I'm just about to break through and then I don't. I do feel this time is different. I like to think positively and I'm very glass half full. So when I look back, I'm like, maybe I wasn't as ready as I thought. And that's why I didn't break through. You know? Even though I wanted it just the same, maybe I just wasn't ready as a performer. But now I feel so much more well-rounded, that I'm just ready. I'm ready for that top spot. I'm ready to be that girl. So I definitely feel like after Money in the Bank, I'm just gonna keep the momentum going until I'm SmackDown Women's Champion," Morgan said.

#1 Liv Morgan on Becky Lynch predicting she would be a champion upon the latter's return

Current SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch returned to WWE to much adulation at SummerSlam in August.

Upon The Man's return, a clip of Lynch speaking to Liv Morgan backstage after announcing that she was pregnant went viral on social media.

In the clip, The Man can be seen telling the former Riott Squad member that she would be a champion when Lynch returned to WWE after her pregnancy.

The prediction unfortunately did not come to pass. Liv Morgan was asked about the moment and any frustration that she didn't meet Becky Lynch's expectations.

Morgan stated that she will fulfill Lynch's wish and may even be the one to take the WWE SmackDown Women's Championship away from The Man:

"Not that I'm disappointing Becky, but just to know that was an expectation and I didn't meet it. But I know I will meet it, eventually. I'd love to prove her right and to prove her wrong. And I'd love to take the title from Becky," Liv said.
