What's the story?

NXT Superstar Liv Morgan took to Twitter to tease a moving to SmackDown LIVE.

In case you didn't know...

Morgan, real name Gionna Jene Daddio, made her NXT debut back in October 2015 in a losing effort against Emma. She went on to have several feuds with Asuka, Billie Kay & Peyton Royce, and others. One of her last televised appearances included working a Six-Women Tag Team Match against the team of Daria Berenato, Billie Kay & Peyton Royce alongside Ember Moon and Aliya1h in November.

Morgan's last televised appearance was on the April 19th tapings of NXT where she competed in a 14-Woman Battle Royal to determine the #1 contender for Asuka's NXT Women's Championship.

The heart of the matter

In the November of 2016, we reported that Morgan — who'd been working on the WWE's Christmas Tour as a part of the RAW roster — was set to join the red brand. However, due to reasons unknown, Morgan stayed in NXT and never made the jump.

This past week, Morgan worked a Six-Woman Tag Team Match against Natalya, Carmella, Tamina & Lana alongside Naomi & Becky Lynch on WWE's live tour in Tampa, Florida. Thus, possibly indicating a shift to Tuesday nights.

The #GLOWFire is strong tonight at #WWETampa with a little help from @wwenxt's @yaonlylivvonce.

What's next?

According to the dirt sheets, the WWE's going to have another Superstar Shakeup, in which talent from RAW, SmackDown LIVE, and NXT get transferred to another brand. Morgan may end-up on SmackDown LIVE through this Shakeup.

Author's take

The SmackDown Women's Division is in severe need of fresh faces. Morgan getting drafted to SmackDown may give her and her character a new life. She'll also get to explore more possibilities for her story-lines and character development.
