Ahead of her SummerSlam match with Ronda Rousey, WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Liv Morgan joined the Pat McAfee Show to talk about her journey in WWE and what she expects to for her match with Rousey.

Liv Morgan talked about how Lita was an inspiration to her while growing up:

"She was the first female wrestler that I feel like I resonated with. She wrestled the boys, she wore baggy pants, and I grew up with four older brothers that I wrestled with in my backyard.

That's something that I helped to give my fans."

Morgan talking about the validation from the fans that she deserves to be SmackDown Women’s Champion:
