The reigning WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan is gearing up for her title defense against one of her toughest challengers, Shayna Baszler at Clash At The Castle in UK. Baszler has a MMA background and Morgan wanted to take some tips from the former WWE United States Champion Riddle, who hails from the same background as well.
Liv Morgan trains with Riddle
Morgan recently retweeted a video in which she can be seen training with RAW star Matt Riddle ahead of her big title defense in the U.K. The SmackDown Women’s Champion can be seen learning and perfecting a counter to the Kirifuda Clutch, which also happens to be Baszler’s finisher.
The reigning WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion had recently revealed some bruises on her face. It comes after a brutal assault from the Number one contender Shayna Baszler on a recent episode of WWE SmackDown. Baszler even stomped on her face which caused the bruises. The former NXT Women’s Champion had attacked Morgan in order to send a message ahead of their bout.
It has been also noted that the official Twitter handle of Daniel Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Orange County recently wished Morgan good luck for her match against Baszler. The former United States Champion also had the following to say about his training session with Morgan:
“We’re here because I’m gonna help Liv [Morgan] train. She asked me, she was very polite about it, she asked me if I could help her,” he said.
