In the weeks leading up to WWE’s Hell in a Cell Premium Live Event, Liv Morgan formed in alliance with Finn Balor and AJ Styles that culminated with the trio taking on the original version of The Judgment Day (Edge, Rhea Ripley & Damian Priest).

Morgan enjoyed her time tagging with Finn and AJ and told the New York Post that they made her feel included and important.

They were amazing honestly. They are such total and complete pros. Being in the ring and seeing how they operate, there are a lot of things I can pick up on from A.J. and from Finn. They made me feel so included and they made me feel so important. They wanted me to stand in the middle, they wanted me to have a spotlight. So I’m really grateful that they were so gracious to me as far as TV time and wanted me to be seen and heard and valued.

Their level of comfort. They’re just always ready to go. They’re calm before they wrestle, while I’m like pacing the hall back and forth and I’m like, ‘Guys, guys.’ I’m so excited. They think it’s cute, they think it’s funny. Their composure — they compose themselves in a completely different manner than I do. They’ve wrestled way longer than I have. They have a bag of skills that I don’t even know about.

Earlier this month, it was formally announced that Morgan landed a role in a film titled ‘The Kill Room’. She credited C.J. Perry f.k.a. Lana for connecting her to the producer.

A good friend of mine, CJ Perry formerly known as Lana, she had reached out to me to let me know that a producer by the name of Jordan (Yale) Levine had wanted to reach out and connect and see if there is any kind of future work-related endeavors we can explore. So I met him. We hit it off, it was great. He told me he was producing this movie called ‘The Kill Room’ and that I should audition. I literally just auditioned and I got cast.

I play a character by the name of Emma, who is a snooty art observer who kind of bashes pretentious artists. So it’s a very fun role to play. I’m just excited to kind of see what else is out there. To kind of use what WWE has given me as far as acting, stage presence and see where else I can use that because being on set felt very, very familiar. I felt like I was doing a backstage at WWE.

Morgan is a part of the women’s Money in the Bank Ladder match. She qualified for the bout by winning a tag match with Alexa Bliss. On the topic of her on-screen interactions with Alexa, Morgan wants to focus on her singles career but would not mind teaming with Bliss in the future.

I’d love to continue focusing on my singles career. I want to win Money in the Bank and cash in so I can become women’s champion. But I am up to a tag team with Lex. We get along great, we have fun. But I’d love my first title to be a solo women’s championship.

Money in the Bank is scheduled to take place on July 2nd and below is the card for the event:

  • Raw Women’s Championship: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Carmella
  • Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins vs. Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Omos vs. Riddle vs. TBD
  • Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Lacey Evans vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Liv Morgan vs. Raquel Rodriguez vs. Shotzi vs. Becky Lynch
