Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott are both in search of their first taste of WWE gold at Clash of Champions when they challenge Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship.
Speaking with Comic Book, Morgan is opening up about how the group going their separate ways earlier this year affected her mindset and set her on the path to self-discovery.
"The breakup. We had broken up very unexpectedly and there was no more Riott Squad. You know? We were flying off on all cylinders. We felt our strongest in the ring as we've ever felt, then we had the draft, and Ruby and Sarah stayed on SmackDown. I'm at Raw and I went to SmackDown, and that was the end of The Riott Squad," Morgan said. "Then, I went on this journey of finding myself and becoming my own woman. I have these two girls that I could always rely on and now it was just myself, then Ruby turned on me.”
Morgan continued, "I think the true version -- I feel like I'm always evolving. I feel different on every day. I'm always evolving. I'm always trying to be better. I think what's held me back, I don't think it was The Riott Squad, I think it was myself. You know? The way you talk to yourself is very detrimental to the way you think and the way you act, and it's just been me and my own way a lot of maybe not fully believing in myself even if that's what I show to the world.
"But now, it's like I'm just so ready to be a champion," Morgan said. "I feel like my true form will come when I hold those titles, which will be on Sunday. When I am able to hold a championship and know that what I've worked for my entire life and what I've been fighting for my entire life, that I wasn't wrong, I wasn't crazy. Once I hold it in my hands that's when I'll feel like I will have my true form."
Continuing on, Morgan says that both she and Ruby carry Sarah Logan, who was released by WWE and is currently on hiatus due to pregnancy, with them in spirit every time they go to the ring.
"Well, The Riott Squad will always and only be Liv Morgan, Ruby Riott, and Sarah Logan. Every day that Ruby and I go out we have a wolf patch on our entrance jacket, and that is for Sarah," Morgan said. "We wear it over our hearts. She's out there with us all the time. So to be honest, we're not looking for a third member unless that is Sarah Logan, but Ruby and I are working on a little revamp if you will. So keep watching."
Recently, Morgan shot down rumors that she was ever slated to be Sister Abigail. Learn more here.
