Growing up in Elmwood Park, Liv Morgan’s family built the aspiring sports entertainer a wrestling ring in their backyard.

“It couldn’t be be any better, the fact that the biggest show that WWE has all year, the pinnacle of everything we’ve worked for all year, (is) literally in my backyard, like 15 minutes from my house, if even (that),” Morgan said.'”It’s just incredible, and I’m excited to hopefully get to perform in front of that crowd and just to be there. I know the energy, I know New Jersey’s going to bring it, like always.”

WrestleMania 35 Finalized Card: Setting the Stage for Sunday’s Event

Get some sleep on Saturday, April 6 because there could be as many as 19 matches at WrestleMania 35 on Sunday.

The main event received some higher stakes on Monday when Stephanie McMahon announced the Triple-Threat match between Rousey, Flair, and Lynch would be for the Raw and Smackdown Women’s title. It’s unclear how that will be handled once a winner is crowned, but this will be the first time there has been one women’s champion since the most recent brand split.
