This past Monday on WWE Raw, Liv Morgan stepped up and challenged Charlotte Flair. Though Liv was not successful, many believed she came out of the segment as a bigger star due to her promo work and taking Charlotte to the limit.
Speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Charlotte discussed the segment and her mindset working with Liv.
"My take was, when I first found out about it, was we had three segs [television segments], with a promo and a match, that is a huge chunk of time. That’s an opportunity to highlight Liv, highlight myself, and it’s much more time than we were given before. I went out there thinking, ‘How can I give Liv the best performance knowing she is the next big thing?’ Having the promo and the two segs, I don’t think people realize how much goes into that. I’ve had those reps, she hasn’t. I know people were disappointed she lost but, at the same time, it makes you go, ‘I want more for her!’ Now you want more for Liv. Sometimes people forget this, but you can’t slay the dragon on the first night," she stated.
Charlotte has been keeping busy during the pandemic, appearing on both Raw and NXT as the NXT Women's Champion. She defended her title against Io Shirai on Wednesday, losing by DQ but keeping her championship.
