When Rhea Ripley injured Liv Morgan in a match on RAW last summer, it seemed like a way to add heat to the former at the expense of her former tag team partner, but in reality, it was a technical decision to write the former SmackDown Women's Champion off of television so she should could have surgery on a completely dislocated shoulder.

Discussing her injury, her absence, and why she opted to take time off in order to right the problem once and for all in an Insight interview with Chris Van Vliet, Morgan let it be known that the origins of her Revenge Tour are very much legitimate and a big reason why she's so fired up to be back today.

“I had a very pretty serious injury that we kind of even haven’t really disclosed the details of. So basically, I dislocated my shoulder in a match with Ripley. And I went and got an MRI, the MRI showed a labral tear. I don’t know if you guys know anything about MRIs, but they’re only 60% accurate. I did not know that,” Liv Morgan revealed via TJR.

“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. And so I sat around with it, because I really, 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. And so I had all these extra tears and rips in my shoulder that we wouldn’t have known about had I not gotten the surgery. So 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. But I honestly forgot I’ve had the surgery. I feel normal. I feel great in the ring. I only remember when I see my suture marks. So it was it was pretty crazy.”

Did Morgan's burning desire to get back at Ripley feel like a storyline, something destined to heat her up like her hardcore gimmick around Extreme Rules in October of 2022? Yes, it did, but in reality, the gimmick couldn't have been any more rooted in reality, which is probably why Morgan felt so passionately about it in the first place.

Liv Morgan reveals how Extreme Rules helped her avoid a housefire.

Speaking of Extreme Rules 2022, elsewhere on her Insight with Chris Van Vliet appearance, Liv Morgan revealed how using a fire extinguisher on the show helped her to avoid a very real house fire during a recent taco night with fellow WWE alumni CJ Perry.

“So like two weeks ago, I fly home from Monday Night Raw and CJ is staying in my house, we’re best friends. So she’s staying at my house, and she’s like, ‘Do you want tacos?' I’m like, ‘Yeah.' So she puts taco shells in the oven because she wanted to toast them a little bit, and in typical CJ fashion, she hit broil instead of bake. I don’t know if y’all know what broil is, but broil is like fire. So pretty much my oven went on fire, and we’re like, oh my god. I know I have a fire extinguisher and I only know how to use a fire extinguisher because of Extreme Rules 2022. So I swear, in that moment, you don’t even know I’m like, thank you wrestling.' So I put out the oven fire, and then it burst into flames again. I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, so I put out the fire again, and then that was it. I don’t know if you guys ever put out a fire but the fire extinguisher leaves a crazy residue, this crazy residue all over my kitchen,” Liv Morgan told Chris Van Vliet via Fightful.

“So then we were on our hands and knees with toothbrushes scrubbing the tiles and cleaning it all up. It was the best-case scenario for a house fire though there was no damage. We cleaned it up, and it was kind of just ended up being a funny moment. But it could have been bad, but luckily, it wasn’t. No tacos. You know what’s funny about it is I don’t even like hard shells, so it would have been for nothing.”

Welp, there you go, folks; wrestling helped Morgan avoid a house fire that could have done far more than dirty up her kitchen. Who said wrestling isn't real?
