After being off television for months, Liv Morgan returned to WWE Raw on Dec. 30, interrupting the wedding between Lana and Bobby Lashley. In the interruption, Liv revealed that she was a former lover of Lana's.
Upon the reveal, openly gay Sonya Deville reacted by saying her mind was blown. Sonya pitched WWE on an LGBTQ storyline with Mandy Rose, but it never came to fruition. Speaking to the New York Post, Liv was asked if she had spoken to Sonya about the storyline.
"I have a very close friendship with Sonya Deville, so I spoke to her, and the details of those conversations I’m politely not going to share with you (laughs). But everything’s fine. Everything’s cool. We talked about it. She’s still a very good friend of mine, and I can’t be mad at anyone for how they feel and how they react to things. Everyone is gonna feel how they want to feel, so I’ve just got to allow that. At the end of the day, this is business, this is work, and I’m doing what I’m told and supposed to do, you know," she said.
Immediately, fans worried about how WWE would handle a lesbian storyline. WWE didn't exactly follow up on the storyline, only booking matches with Rusev, Liv, Lana, and Lashley with no explanation about Lana and Liv's past.
When asked if the angle is now dead, Lana responded, "I don’t think anything is dead in WWE. I can’t really answer that, but I do think the door is open for it to be touched on again."
Liv has since moved on from the angle and is now involved in WWE Elimination Chamber alongside her former Riott Squad mates Sarah Logan and Ruby Riott. She will compete inside the Elimination Chamber this Sunday. You can find the full card by clicking here.
