It has been just about a year since Liv Morgan interrupted Lana‘s wedding to Bobby Lashley and revealed that she and Lana were past lovers. The two had a couple of matches as a result earlier in the year. The storyline, however, was rarely touched upon. WWE has always been scrutinized for LGBTQ storylines and with valid reasons.
Morgan recently spoke to Inside the Ropes where she said she would be open to revisiting that storyline.
“I would love to touch on that story again because I think it’s so important just to show not different people but, you know, ‘Hey, maybe I love this girl,’ you know, like, I think it’s important just to show that. But I don’t think you ever can say never in WWE. I think anything and everything is open to being visited again. Is that happening? I have no idea. But would I like it? For sure.”
She further adds in some of the criticism that was received from portraying a lesbian character. Morgan says it was a mixed reaction. There were people who were happy she was back on screen regardless whereas there were others who felt the a lesbian should have portrayed that role.
“I think it was definitely split half and half and I think that’s because… I think people today, they want real representation. They want like… Characters are characters, but they want people that are really, maybe, experiencing these things to represent these characters. So I feel like, in that aspect, maybe it didn’t go over so well towards some people that felt like Lana’s secret lover could have been someone else that was maybe really into women, you know, but then on the other spectrum, this was my re-debut after like eight months off. So people were excited to see me and they were happy for me.”
A lot of the criticism came from the fact that this was a rumored storyline between Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose prior to this which obviously never came to light.
Lana previously mentioned she would love to revisit this as well. Right now both superstars are on opposite brands so don’t expect this to come to fruition anytime soon if it were to be brought up again. Lana has recently been receiving the most time she ever has in the ring. She was recently pulled from a tag title match for the TLC event after a kayfabe injury.
Although representation does matter, what would you think about them revisiting this? Leave your thoughts below.
