Liv Morgan Speaks Out About Shoulder Injury

During a special episode of UpUpDownDown's "School Out" YouTube channel, WWE Superstar Liv Morgan candidly discussed her recent injury, revealing that she suffered a "torn shoulder." The unfortunate incident occurred on the May 12 edition of "WWE SmackDown" when Morgan and her tag team partner, Raquel Rodriguez, defended their WWE Women's Tag Team Titles against Dakota Kai and Bayley.

Regrettably, Kai also sustained a knee injury during the match. Reflecting on her current situation, Morgan expressed her frustration: "I'm sitting at home with my torn shoulder, and I can't help but feel excited about winning that UpUpDownDown championship and defeating Mace." In a lighthearted jab, she called out Mace's absence and jokingly requested footage of his child's recital.

Determined to prove her resilience, Morgan added, "Even with just one functional shoulder, I'm still going to beat you."

Due to her injury, Morgan and Rodriguez were obliged to relinquish their WWE Women's Tag Team Titles.

The new champions were determined in a thrilling Fatal Four-Way match on the May 29 episode of "WWE Raw." Ultimately, Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler emerged victorious, defeating Damage CTRL's Bayley and IYO SKY, Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville, and Raquel Rodriguez and Shotzi.

Before their unfortunate setback, Morgan and Rodriguez had enjoyed a successful reign as the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions since the April 10 edition of "Raw." They claimed the titles after a hard-fought victory against the formidable duo of Becky Lynch and WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus.

Notably, Stratus had stepped in as a replacement for another legendary Hall of Famer, Lita. Liv Morgan's resilience and determination remain unwavering despite her recent setback. With her focus on recovery and future victories, Morgan aims to triumphantly return to the ring, showcasing her incredible talent and passion for the sport.
