WWE News: Liv Morgan set for WWE Main Roster Debut
NXT Superstar Liv Morgan could be soon set to join the women's division on the main roster. Morgan has been advertised for the post-holiday live tour with the RAW roster. Morgan will be teaming up with Bayley, and Alicia Fox for a series of matches against Nia Jax, Emma, and Dana Brooke.
Morgan who's currently 22, made her official NXT debut in the December of 2015. Before that, Morgan was used as an extra at NXT TakeOver: Rival and NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable. Morgan has had no wrestling experience prior to joining the developmental brand. If Morgan does get promoted, she'll be the youngest superstar on the current main roster.
Morgan got more television time on NXT after Bayley got promoted to the main roster and was pushed as a babyface. During her run in NXT, she challenged Asuka for the NXT Women's Championship and lost that match in under a minute via submission. Morgan later started feuding with Billie Kay and Peyton Royce which is still on-going.
Morgan's call-up to the main roster comes as a surprise even though the RAW women's division is in some desperate need of women wrestlers.
Former two-time RAW Women's Champion, Sasha Banks who recently appeared on the Sam Roberts Podcast, talked about this lack of women by saying
"We really don't have enough women. Like, I wrestle the same people every single week, Dana Brooke or Charlotte, Charlotte, Dana Brooke. There are only six of us and I think that's the hardest part, just we need more faces on RAW."
Morgan, if promoted, could definitely bring in some much-needed freshness to the division, and will also probably help out in bringing out diverse storylines that don't revolve around the RAW Women's title or just around the same limited women wrestlers.
