Liv Morgan was injured in a six-woman tag team match between The Bella Twins, Natalya and The Riott Squad a few weeks ago. The former NXT star has since recovered and was able to take part in the match at Super Show-Down, but her injury still remains a hot topic for the WWE Universe.
SmackDown General Manager Paige has had her own fair share of injuries and recently appeared on Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory Podcast, but the former Divas Champion believes that despite Brie Bella making the mistake, she thought Sarah Logan and Ruby Riott were most at fault.
“I feel so bad for Brie-like she’s never hurt someone, this is the first time she’s hurt someone and she gets blamed for it, come on dude like it’s an accident. It’s an accident, Liv doesn’t blame her, you know?”
“The thing that I didn’t like about it is the fact that her teammates brought her back into the ring to do a suplex when everyone knew she was knocked out,” she said via Ringsidenews. “That’s the thing I didn’t like.”
“It’s just like don’t come back for the suplex, we know you’re hurt. We have concussion meetings all the time, take care of yourself. But also her tag team partners as much as I love them, they’re very sweet girls, they know she got knocked out… you don’t let her back in the ring again. That’s what Sasha did with me, as soon as she saw something was messed up she said, ‘I’m not continuing the match.’ That’s a professional, right? I was trying to continue it, I was trying, trying, trying she was like, ‘Stop, you’re gonna hurt yourself even more.”
“I get where Liv is coming from she wants to continue, continue but stop, it isn’t worth it. But with Ruby and Sarah, take care of your teammate. You see that she got hurt — don’t let her back in the ring again. The referee in there, don’t let her back in the ring again. They said the referee didn’t know anything I’m like, ‘come on! How do you not know?!”
Morgan is expected to be on Raw tonight and will continue to perform as part of the flagship show since she was cleared to compete following her concussion on Saturday.
