WWE star Liv Morgan is seemingly staying with an AEW star while she is currently on her WWE hiatus.
Liv Morgan recently took to her Instagram story and revealed that she has been staying with AEW star CJ Perry, formerly known as Lana in WWE, while taking care of some business in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, CJ Perry made her debut in All Elite Wrestling after Miro defeated Powerhouse Hobbs at All Out on September 3rd.
The former SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan has been on a break since losing the Women’s Tag Team Championships alongside Raquel Rodriguez to Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville on the July 17th edition of WWE RAW. This marked the pair’s first title defense after capturing the titles from Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler at Money in the Bank on July 1st.
It has been noted that WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley played a role in Rodriguez and Morgan losing the titles. ‘The Eradicator’ attacked the champions backstage and didn’t let them compete in 100%. Ripley went on to successfully defend the Women’s World Championship against Raquel Rodriguez at WWE Payback and once again in the main event of the September 11th edition of RAW.
Liv Morgan is a former Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder winner which she won last year and cashed in on Ronda Rousey on the same night. We will see what WWE has in store upon her return.
