Raquel Rodriguez Praises Liv Morgan, Says She Makes Her Want To Step Up When They're In The Ring

Raquel Rodriguez is happy to have Liv Morgan by her side.

The current WWE Women's Tag Team Champions are riding a high right now coming off their title win, where Liv Morgan was able to pin a legend in Trish Stratus. Morgan and Rodriguez's reign with the titles is already off to a great start, as they were able to successfully defend them against Chelsea Green & Sonya Deville on the April 21 episode of WWE SmackDown.

In a new interview with WWE's After The Bell podcast, Rodriguez talked about how Morgan has really made her comfortable on the main roster and how she has motivated her to step up every time she's in the ring.

“Oh yeah, you know coming up to SmackDown and only being here for a year, of course anyone new to Raw or SmackDown is going to be a little bit timid, we’re going to be a little bit quiet. We’re trying to figure out the ropes, we’re trying to adjust to a new atmosphere, to the new crew, to the new team, to the new divisions, so it is a lot different from NXT and Liv has really showed me that it’s okay to fight for what you believe in, it’s okay to fight for what you feel is best for you and best for WWE and the women’s division and she has so much passion and so much energy and she puts that forward every single time we get an opportunity to step into the ring, and it really makes me wanna step up every time we’re in there to come up with new tag moves, to come up with new stuff, to have a goal every time we’re in the ring. I love that about her because she’s really taking the lead, she’s really taking charge and making me really hone into my craft and who I am as Raquel Rodriguez.”
