Liv Morgan Details Recovery Process From Significant Injury

Liv Morgan WWE

Liv Morgan has opened up about the surgery and rehab she went through to make it back into the WWE ring.

Former WWE Women’s Champion Liv Morgan made a surprise return in the 2024 Royal Rumble in a match where she finished as the runner up to the eventual winner Bayley.

In July 2023, Morgan was taken out of action on WWE Raw when she was attacked by the former Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley. At the time, it was reported that it was a shoulder injury, but there wasn’t a lot known about the extent of the injury.

Since her return to the ring, Morgan has spoken often about how she’s on the “Liv Morgan Revenge Tour” against Ripley and anybody that’s in her way. During a backstage attack, Morgan took out Ripley, who ended up hurting her shoulder. Ripley had to forfeit the Women’s World Champion and she’s going to be out of action for several months.

Liv Morgan spoke to Chris Van Vliet on YouTube about her 2023 injury, the surgery she had and the rehab process as well.

“I had a very pretty serious injury that we kind of even haven’t really disclosed the details of. So basically, I dislocated my shoulder in a match with Ripley. And I went and got an MRI, the MRI showed a labral tear. I don’t know if you guys know anything about MRIs, but they’re only 60% accurate. I did not know that.”

“And so pretty much they’re like, hi, we recommend getting surgery because of the dislocation. So you’re gonna dislocate it again, whether it’s in five years, whether it’s WrestleMania next year, you’re going to have another dislocation. And so I sat around with it, because I really, I really didn’t want to miss time, obviously, but I also didn’t want to have this injury again.”

“So I opted for the surgery, but luckily I did because like I said, MRIs are only 60% accurate. So when my surgeon opened up my little shoulder, he was like well, bicep tear, rotator cuff tear, labrum tear. And so I had all these extra tears and rips in my shoulder that we wouldn’t have known about had I not gotten the surgery. So if I chose to just rehab I wouldn’t have healed properly and we wouldn’t have known why.”

“And so I got the surgery. But I honestly forgot I’ve had the surgery. I feel normal. I feel great in the ring. I only remember when I see my suture marks. So it was it was pretty crazy.”
