NXT Showcase: Liv Morgan



Hello everyone, this is Vaude Influence.

As I stated last week, for the next few weeks, I’m going to do something special for NXT Showcase.

The format will be the same as usual as I get to give out my thoughts on the wrestler and the video of the wrestler being in it as well. However, this time, I have a special guest that will also give their thoughts on the wrestler and the video of the wrestler being in it as well.

This type of format will be going on for a couple of weeks. My special guest for this week’s NXT Showcase is none other than Wrestlecorp User OriginalSinner.

Anyway, let’s get started shall we?

Topic/Subject: Today, I will be showing a match that involves a woman from New Jersey.

Wrestler: “The Daddio” Liv Morgan.

Background Information: Liv Morgan is from Paramus, New Jersey. She is trained by Sara Del Rey and the WWE Performance Center.

She signed a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in 2014 and was later assigned to their developmental territory, WWE NXT, in October.

She made her first appearance on NXT television at the NXT Takeover: Rival event on February 11, 2015 as a planted fan, jumping on Tyler Breeze during his entrance.

She later appeared at NXT Takeover: Unstoppable on May 20, 2015, once again as part of Breeze’s entrance.

In October, she was given the new ring name Marley.

On October 22, 2015, on an episode of NXT, she wrestled her first match under her name, facing and losing to Eva Marie.

She would return a month later as Liv Morgan on December 2, 2015, losing to Emma.

On January 13, 2016, on an episode of NXT, she competed in a battle royal to determine the number one contender to Bayley’s NXT Women’s Championship, which was won by Carmella.

She still competes in NXT to this day.


She previously worked and modeled for Hooters.

My Thoughts: Liv Morgan is a woman that has a lot of potential. The woman has a great look, she has presence about her in and outside of the ring, she has a solid character, solid mic skills, and she is a solid wrestler. With more time, she could be something in the future. Yo!

OriginalSinner’s Thoughts: Liv Morgan is a fast learner. I remember seeing her when she got signed, she looked like just another cute face. Less than a year later, she is signed, on, appearing on NXT, and a fan favorite at live events. She is truly a diamond in the rough. I don’t know many women that can bust out 450s or do Shooting Star Presses. Given time, Liv Morgan is a future star. Already lots of comparisons to Trish Stratus, but she’s not Trish. She’s Liv Morgan. Represent!

OriginalSinner’s Thoughts: A lot of rest holds and selling, but Liv continues to impress. Not the best match to showcase her skills, but she still looked pretty good. She knows what she’s doing. Shame she didn’t use a Shooting Star, but she did use that bridging move which is pretty cool and unique. Only scratching the surface here. With little TV time, Liv was still very over.

My Thoughts: This was a solid match where both women look strong in this match. Liv Morgan was impressive in this match for what she can showcase.

The moves that she did in this match was quite impressive. I love the comeback sequence that Liv Morgan did with the bulldog followed by the kip-up. That was cool.

I guess the only problem I have with Liv Morgan in this match is the finisher that she uses with that belly to back suplex. Granted, it was executed perfectly. However, it didn’t feel like it was a finishing move, it just felt like a normal move which is why I was surprised with the finish of that match. I think the belly to back suplex should be used a signature move rather than a finisher, but that’s just me.

Other than that, a solid match where I can definitely see a star in Liv Morgan in the near future. In a year or two, I think Liv Morgan could be a great overall women’s wrestler down the road, but only time will tell. Yo!

After watching the video, give me your thoughts on the video or the wrestler herself. Thank you.
