WWE star Liv Morgan recently spoke with Ryan Satin of FOX Sports to hype her new WWE Network documentary, “Liv Forever.” Check out highlights of her interview below.
How her network special turned into a full-blown documentary:
I had just gotten broken up from the Riott Squad in the Superstar Shakeup. I got moved to Smackdown. So, we knew that I was going to have a couple of weeks before I got put into the mix. We just thought we were going to document my weeks leading up to my debut. Then two weeks turned into four weeks and four weeks turned into six weeks. And before we knew it, I think I debuted, like, thirteen weeks later, maybe. Then we just kept having all these twists and turns that kept happening. So, we just kept the cameras rolling. But, no. This was not the anticipated result, to have a full blown documentary. But, I’m so grateful that’s what it ended up becoming.
Says she fell in love with WWE the moment she watched it:
Yeah. It was literally since the first day that I turned on WWE. I just knew that that’s what I wanted to do. I’m so lucky that’s what I gravitated towards. Because I needed something to gravitate towards. But, yeah, I fell in love with it as soon as I watched it. I was so obsessed.
How proud her family is:
It could have gone either way. It could have gone tragically for me after that, or what could have happened is what happened. I’m happy that what happened is I get to live the life that I’m currently living. But, there was definitely a testy time period where my life could have gone either direction.
How she tried to create a darker character based on real-life experiences:
I basically wanted to use the experiences I’ve gone through, the struggles of my childhood and kind of use the character that I was trying to create as an outlet to express the darker feelings that I was feeling. The more sad emotions that I was feeling. So, I wanted to use this character as an outlet to express, maybe, suppressed emotions, you know? I just wanted to use this character as an outlet to show an opposite spectrum of Liv, you know? But, I’m very happy and bubbly and I just wanted the pitch for it to come on the opposite spectrum of that.
What it was like to work with Paul Heyman:
It was great because I had someone that was in charge completely in my corner and wanted to see me succeed and was finding opportunities for me to show what I can do and show what range I had. So, coming into work every week, I didn’t know what to expect. But, I knew that it was for my greater good, you know? It was very cool. He’s one of the best ever. To have him to talk to and to go to for advice, or just see something more clearly than I was understanding, it was great.
Having mixed feeling about her love affair angle with Lana:
It was crazy enough that I couldn’t say no. You know, looking back, I’ve had mixed feelings on it, too. But, looking back on it, I just think everything happens for a reason, you know? And what we wanted to accomplish was to re-debut Liv in the biggest way possible. I definitely think that was accomplished. No one saw it coming. So, at the end of the day, I loved it and I’m grateful for it.
