Liv Morgan has made it clear she wants to start the Women’s Royal Rumble match as the first entrant and she explained why.
As the former Smackdown Women’s Champion, Liv Morgan has shown that she is fearless. Ever since cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase against Ronda Rousey to become the champion last summer, Morgan has done a number of things to prove just how tough she is.
During her reign as the Smackdown Women’s Champion, Morgan went on to beat Shayna Baszler clean to keep her Smackdown Women’s Title while also overpowering women like Lacey Evans and Sonya Deville by putting them through tables.
With the Royal Rumble coming up on Saturday, Liv Morgan has said on Smackdown that she wants to enter the women’s Rumble match first. Not only that, but Liv Morgan admitted that she has been pitching for herself to enter the Women’s Royal Rumble match first. Liv explained why in a recent interview with Instinct Culture by Denise Salcedo.
“I am hoping and I have been pitching myself to come out first. I want to come out first and make a statement to not only endure all the pain and physicality that it will take to get to me to be the last woman standing, but just to leave a message that, you know, bring all 29 women. At the end of the day, I’m still going to be the last one standing in that ring, and who knows what title I’d want to wrestle for.”
As she continued, Liv Morgan also talked about how she has overcome obstacles during her WWE career.
“I feel like all the obstacles just made the end goal and the end results so much sweeter. I feel like there were so many times in my career where I felt like I’d never be champion, I wasn’t good enough to be champion.”
“Other people thought I wasn’t good enough to be champion, and not for one second did I stop believing in myself and having faith in myself that at the end of the day, I will be champion. That’s exactly what I did this year. I’ve had an incredible, amazing, blessed year, and I couldn’t be happier.”
