In the episode of Raw that aired on November 8, Liv Morgan defeated Bianca Belair, Queen Zelina, Rhea Ripley and Carmella, earning her the chance to aspire to the RAW Women’s Championship. She will finally have the chance to compete for the title this Monday as she will challenge Becky Lynch for the top red brand belt.
Over the past few weeks, Morgan and Lynch have added a dash of hype to their impending showdown. Host of 'Smack Talk' on Sportskeeda, former WWE manager Dutch Mantell had a nice word for Liv Morgan, highlighting her strengths both in the ring and on the microphone.
Dutch Mantell comments on Liv Morgan
“I think Liv Morgan is one of the most underrated superstars on the entire roster. There is a tremendous talent inside that girl, at least from my point of view" - began Dutch Mantell.
“Liv Morgan speaks well into the microphone, works well and looks great. She doesn't need anything else to make it into this business. Plus, she has the ability to interact with fans... Fans are eager to see her performance in the ring.
Liv Morgan looks like the typical girl next door: she could be your school friend, she could be your neighbor or she could be the daughter of a friend of your mother. That's why people are dying to see it” - he added.
Recently interviewed by Rick Ucchino, Liv Morgan talked about the ups and downs of WWE in recent years. “I have the perception that in the last two years of my career I have always lacked something to make the leap. I feel like it's different this time.
I like to think positively and see the glass half full. Maybe in the past, I wasn't as ready as I imagined and that's why I didn't breakthrough. Even if that was my wish, I was not yet mature as a performer. Now, however, I am ready to get to the top.
I dream of becoming the symbolic face of the federation, even if I still have to work hard to succeed." Liv Morgan has taken to Twitter to share a screenshot of her conversation with WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus ahead of tonight's episode of RAW.
Morgan is set to take on 'The Man' Becky Lynch for the Raw Women's Championship on the red brand. The match is taking place on an auspicious date. 17 years ago today, Trish Stratus and Lita made history by main eventing Monday Night RAW for the WWE Women’s Championship.
