Liv Morgan discloses the details of her recent injury.

After spending six months on the shelf, Liv Morgan made her grand return to WWE as the final entrant in the 2024 Women’s Royal Rumble match. In storyline, Morgan’s absence was attributed to a shoulder injury sustained during a brutal beatdown at the hands of Rhea Ripley. In actuality, though, Morgan says her injury occurred in a prior match against Ripley.

During a recent interview with Insight With Chris Van Vliet, Morgan provided more details on her shoulder injury, and her subsequent decision to undergo surgery.

“I dislocated my shoulder in a match with [Rhea] Ripley. And I went and got an MRI, the MRI showed a labral tear,” Morgan recalled. “I don’t know if you guys know anything about MRIs, but they’re only 60% accurate. I did not know that. And so pretty much they’re like, ‘Hi, we recommend getting surgery because of the dislocation. So you’re gonna dislocate it again, whether it’s in five years, whether it’s WrestleMania next year. You’re going to have another dislocation.'”

“I sat around with it, because I really didn’t want to miss time, obviously, but I also didn’t want to have this injury again. So I opted for the surgery, but luckily I did because like I said, MRIs are only 60% accurate. So when my surgeon opened up my little shoulder, he was like, ‘Well, bicep tear, rotator cuff tear, labrum tear.’ I had all these extra tears and rips in my shoulder that we wouldn’t have known about had I not gotten the surgery. If I chose to just rehab, I wouldn’t have healed properly and we wouldn’t have known why. And so I got the surgery.”

When asked about her current level of pain months removed from surgery, Morgan noted that her shoulder had regained full mobility, with zero pain. However, she is still working on regaining its full strength.

“My right [shoulder] is a lot stronger than my left right now, but I’m feeling great,” Morgan said. “It moves great, so I’m happy, I got very, very, very lucky because shoulders are a little bit iffy. I’ve asked a lot of people, they said like it kind of feels worse than it did before. And I’m very, very, very lucky that mine feels 100% normal.”
