Liv Morgan is the current Smackdown Women’s Champion but before that she used to be part of The Riott Squad with former WWE Superstar Ruby Riott, who now works in AEW as Ruby Soho.
Before being released in 2021, Soho worked for WWE for 5 years. While speaking to BT Sport’s Ariel Helwani, Liv Morgan talked about her struggles of growing up in a family full of abuse and drugs.
“Not all of them. Some I haven’t spoken to in years, but most of my family lives in Florida now. I’m really close with three. I have a good relationship with my mother. But yeah, I take care of them. I guess growing up and being in my environment, I understood really soon, like, this isn’t what I want in my life. It was just very violent and chaotic, not a conducive environment to grow, so, I kind of knew like, I’m going to save my family. That’s kind of how I based my whole entire life, like, what can I do to get us out of this situation?”
“So when I saw WWE for the first time, I fell in love, and I was like, this is it. I’m not some hero, but I just always knew that’s what I was going to do. That was my purpose. It was like, I’m going to save my family. I’m going to break this cycle of drugs, abuse and police at my house almost every single night. I was like, this is not going to be my life, and I’m going to also change their lives.”
