In a fascinating intersection of pop culture, the wrestling world met Hollywood at the recent premiere of Greta Gerwig’s ‘Barbie’ movie. Representing WWE, Women’s Tag Team Champion, Liv Morgan, joined a cavalcade of A-listers at the event held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Morgan’s presence didn’t go unnoticed as she adorned her championship title on her shoulder, posing for photos on the pink carpet.
For years, wrestling fans and pop culture enthusiasts alike have drawn comparisons between Morgan and Margot Robbie, noting their striking resemblances. The comparisons heightened when Morgan’s heel turn in the WWE back in 2020 bore similarities to Robbie’s Harley Quinn from ‘Suicide Squad. Despite not having seen ‘Suicide Squad’ at the time, Morgan acknowledged the Harley Quinn influence on her WWE persona, and subsequently, she grew into a fan of Robbie’s.
Morgan, alongside fellow WWE stars Karrion Kross and Scarlett Bordeaux, attended the premiere, but it was her encounter with Robbie that stole the show. Fans can’t help but get excited seeing the duo together. A picture of their meeting was shared by Morgan on Instagram with a short but impactful message.
As her career in the WWE thrives, particularly alongside her tag team partner Raquel Rodriguez, Morgan is now fueling hopes for a collaboration with Robbie. Her uncanny resemblance to the Hollywood star has fans imagining the possibilities. Perhaps a role in a potential sequel to ‘Barbie’, or even an exciting WWE and Barbie doll collaboration featuring a Liv Morgan lookalike could be on the cards.
Adding another layer of intrigue to the event was the fact that another WWE superstar has a role in the ‘Barbie’ movie. John Cena, who was cast in the movie following a ‘happy accident,’ will portray a merman. This isn’t Morgan’s first brush with acting either. She appeared on an episode of ‘Chucky’ in 2022, where her character met a grim fate at the hands of the sentient doll.
Robbie, a self-proclaimed WWE fan in her youth who reportedly slept next to a cardboard cutout of John Cena, could even make a surprise appearance in the WWE. Such an event would undoubtedly be a major moment in both Hollywood and the wrestling world, akin to Dwayne Johnson returning for a match.
In the meantime, fans can catch Liv Morgan on ‘Monday Night Raw’ on the USA Network, or revisit some of her classic matches on Peacock Premium. With her star on the rise, both in and out of the ring, the future holds exciting possibilities for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion. From her interactions with Robbie to her growing acting resume, Liv Morgan’s wrestling journey continues to break new ground.
