The 26-year-old, real name Gionna Jene Daddio, is a native of New Jersey. She began her pro wrestling career in 2015 and prepared inside the walls of the WWE Performance Center.
In 2017, Morgan made her debut on the main roster, forming the stable The Riott Squad with Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan. In 2019, she started competing in singles.
Morgan was one of the picks for the SmackDown brand during the 2020 Draft, joining Riott. She re-formed a partnership with Riott to defeat The Ilconis at Payback.
Matt Hardy Change
During his pro wrestling career, Matt Hardy has played many, many different roles.
Since his arrival in All Elite Wrestling, though, Hardy has been a babyface. Things could be changing soon for the legendary superstar.
According to a report by Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, plans are in the infant stages to turn Hardy heel. The plans were laid out during the recent episode of AEW Dynamite through the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal.
“Matt Hardy turning on his own partners and eliminating them….from what I was told Silver got one of the biggest pops coming out from anyone who was there,” Meltzer said. “Silver was a total babyface and then Hardy eliminated him.
“That was on purpose because they know nothing is going to get people to boo Matt Hardy unless they eliminated (a wrestler) who was so over.”
The AEW roster continues to grow including the arrival of Sting to the promotion.
The 46-year-old Hardy joined AEW following a lengthy run with the WWE. There, he was part of the Hardy Boyz tag team with his brother, Jeff. The duo won the tag team titles numerous times.
Matt Hardy has also won the ECW Championship, WWE Cruiserweight Championship, WWE United States Championship, WWE European Championship and WWF Hardcore Championship.
He has yet to secure a title of any kind since signing with AEW, but has always been in the main event picture.
We will see if a change in attitude leads to some gold finding a new home.
