Legendary promotor and manager Jim Cornette is not a fan of Liv Morgan’s work as he thinks she looks ‘too girly.’
Liv Morgan has been a significant feature within the Raw women’s division in the past few months. She had a match for the Women’s Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania with Rhea Ripley as her partner.
Their union would dissolve soon after, but Liv has since stayed in the spotlight through feuding with Judgement Day. The Hell in a Cell premium live event saw her team with Finn Balor and AJ Styles against the heels.
Unfortunately, Judgement Day would seize victory, potentially putting an end to the rivalry between the two groups, especially given Monday’s events. Although Liv has been one of the more prominently featured women, one legend doesn’t care much for her work.
Jim Cornette compared Liv to Rhea Ripley on the latest episode of Jim Cornette Experience and praised Rhea’s skills. He doesn’t like Morgan and feels Rhea has carried her through the bulk of their matches together.
“They’ve been fighting every week. Liv Morgan does not grow on me. She’s too girly to be a wrestler. Rhea Ripley has to, not only bend over backward, but has to do the limbo to make it believable that Liv Morgan is hanging in there with her, right?” Cornette said.
“When Rhea and Liv got in there, again, Ripley is everything I like about women’s wrestling and Morgan is the opposite. She’s too small, her sh*t it’s awkward, she’s trying to do sh*t to bigger people and they’re trying to let her, it doesn’t come across. I don’t… she’s too pretty… I just don’t see it,” he stated.

It’s unfortunate Cornette thinks so negatively about Liv, but not surprising as he’s often critical regarding WWE’s current product. While he may not like Morgan’s work, fans have been strongly behind her for a long time now.
This is why WWE has pushed Liv the way they have this year, starting with a title program against Becky Lynch. The two wrestled in some stellar matches as part of their feud, but Becky would always walk away as champion.
Even if Liv is done with Rhea and Judgement Day, WWE will likely keep her as a focal point. With Money in the Bank being the next big event, Liv will probably be in the women’s ladder match.
Given the work she’s put in, this could be her year as she would be a strong favorite to win.
