Liv Morgan Feels It's Important For The Lana Story To Resume, Talks Criticism They Faced From Fans

Liv Morgan wants her storyline with Lana to be resumed for the purposes of representation.

It's almost been a year since Liv Morgan interrupted the wedding of Bobby Lashley and Lana on the final Raw of 2019 to reveal that she and Lana were lovers. Outside of that singular detail, no further information was ever revealed about the relationship, and outside of a few matches, the angle would quickly be dropped.

In the months since then, both women would say that they felt the angle could be picked up at any time but in a new interview with Kenny McIntosh, Liv Morgan explains why she feels it's important for that angle to be resumed in the name of representation.

"I would love to touch on that story again because I think it’s so important just to show not different people but, you know, ‘Hey, maybe I love this girl,’ you know, like, I think it’s important just to show that. But I don’t think you ever can ever say never in WWE. I think anything and everything is open to being visited again. Is that happening? I have no idea. But would I like it? For sure."

Regarding criticism of the angle from the audience, Liv Morgan would acknowledge that perhaps there was a desire to see somebody who was openly on the LGBTQ+ spectrum to be revealed as Lana’s lover but she was grateful for the exciting chance to reappear on TV.

“I think it was definitely split half and half and I think that’s because… I think people today, they want real representation. They want like… Characters are characters, but they want people that are really, maybe, experiencing these things to represent these characters. So I feel like, in that aspect, maybe it didn’t go over so well towards some people that felt like Lana’s secret lover could have been someone else that was maybe really into women, you know, but then on the other spectrum, this was my re-debut after like eight months off. So people were excited to see me and they were happy for me."

In a recent interview, Lana said that she was proud of what she and Liv were able to accomplish, saying that you never knew when the angle would be revisited. Read Lana's comments at this link
