Backstage news regarding the references to released WWE stars during RAW

During the November 29th 2021 edition of WWE RAW, Edge made a reference to former WWE star John Morrison by saying that Miz left his partner high and dry to get fired. Liv Morgan also made a reference to her former Riott Squad partners Ruby Soho and Sarah Logan when she said that Becky Lynch’s “big fat contract” was the reason her friends were gone from WWE.

According to Mike Johnson of, the belief from WWE sources is that Liv Morgan’s line about Ruby and Sarah likely came from either Vince McMahon or someone from the creative team. For what it’s worth, the line was removed from the YouTube version of the segment.

Johnson also noted the following…

“In regard to Edge’s reference to John Morrison’s release (and even his not so veiled reference to CM Punk’s Miz mention on last week’s AEW Dynamite), we are told Edge would have freedom in his promos and those were likely lines he came up with and decided to use to some additional edge and realism to his face off with The Miz, not something given to him by WWE creative.”

Johnson added that Maryse’s appearance was not a one-time deal and one source noted that there has already been talk about her and Miz possibly teaming up against Edge and Beth Phoenix in a tag team match.
