WWE's Liv Morgan Reportedly Dealing With Shoulder Injury, Could Need Surgery

Last week, it was announced that WWE Women's Tag Team Champion Liv Morgan was injured, and on this past Friday's "WWE SmackDown," the company revealed that Morgan and her partner Raquel Rodriguez would be forced to vacate their title. According to Bryan Alvarez on "Wrestling Observer Radio," Morgan is dealing with an injury to her shoulder, and she could require surgery.


Morgan suffered the injury during the May 12 title defense against Damage CTRL on "SmackDown." Dakota Kai would be injured during the very same match, and though no specific details have emerged yet, there is a belief that Kai's injury may be far more severe than Morgan's.

Together with Rodriguez, Morgan captured the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship on the April 10 edition of "WWE Raw." Over the course of their title run, Morgan and Rodriguez defended against Sonya Deville and Chelsea Green on TV as well as at live events. Prior to her tag title run, Morgan has been on a tear over the last year, lasting more than an hour in the 2023 Royal Rumble and, prior to that, utilizing her 2022 Money in the Bank victory to become "WWE SmackDown" Women's Champion.


It's unclear how long Morgan will be out of action for, but if WWE has decided to strip her and Rodriguez of the title, it doesn't seem likely she'll be back very soon. In the meantime, a fatal four-way tag team match has been scheduled for next week's "WWE Raw" to determine new champions. The match will include Bayley and IYO SKY of Damage CTRL, Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler, Sonya Deville and Chelsea Green, and Rodriguez with an unknown partner.
