Liv Morgan no longer feels like the underdog.
Liv Morgan has been SmackDown Women's Champion for the entirety of the summer and where she once felt like it was all a dream, she's now completely confident in her abilities going into an Extreme Rules Match against Ronda Rousey. Speaking to Ryan Satin on the Out of Character podcast, Morgan says that the type of environment she's entering on Saturday, October 8, is one in which she thrives.
"I don't feel like the underdog," she began. "Especially going into this match, this is where I thrive. This is where Liv Morgan thrives. I think I've discovered myself to be a bit of a masochist. In not as much as I like the pain, but like, 'Okay, may I have more?' I want to see what can keep me down, and so I'm excited for the challenge of Extreme Rules, I really am, and I'm willing to take any and all the pain.
"I'm excited like a little sicko," she added. "I feel excited. I'm not nervous. I feel excited. I feel happy. I'm like, 'Thank you for the opportunity. Thank you for allowing me to do this.' I threw down the challenge and it was accepted, and now here we go, My first-ever Extreme Rules match. , I couldn't be more happy. You know, last year I was on the pre-show and here I am defending SmackDown Women's Championship against Ronda Rousey. It's insane."
Furthermore, Liv Morgan says she has so much more to give as champion and she's not ready for the run to come to a close just yet.
"I have so much more to give in so many different ways. This is just one phase, you know what I mean? I have so much more to give as a champion, as a character, and as a performer. I'm blessed that this phase of my career was cemented with this championship, but literally, the best is yet to come. This is only the beginning, which is scary. But I mean, this is only the beginning."
