• RAW Wrestler Unhappy With WWE Editing Her Match This Week
WWE has been taping most of their shows over the past couple of months, which gives them the power to edit out anything they don’t want to air.
It looks like the company shortened up the Liv Morgan vs. Natalya match from this week’s RAW, as Morgan stated on Twitter. She doesn’t look happy about it, as they cut out the moment she was beating Natalya.
“Thank you for posting photos of what you cut out of my match I guess. Appreciate it WWE”
— LIV Morgan (@YaOnlyLivvOnce) June 24, 2020
Speaking of Morgan, she’s reportedly set to reunite with Ruby Riott soon.
