Over the course of the last two weeks, ESPN spoke to all five of the new Raw and SmackDown superstars to learn more about their life-changing weeks.

On Monday, former Divas champion (and NXT women’s champion) Paige made a shocking return in the midst of a No. 1 contender’s match for the Raw women’s championship with Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose in tow. The newly formed trio, who would come to call themselves Absolution, laid out the top contenders, then sent a similar message backstage to champion Alexa Bliss.

The following night on SmackDown, Ruby Riott approached Naomi backstage and introduced her compatriots in the Riott Squad — Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan. In consecutive weeks, they’ve put two former SmackDown women’s champions, Naomi and Becky Lynch, out of commission, and sent a similar message to current champion Charlotte Flair.

These dual, seemingly unrelated invasions, have breathed fresh energy into both Raw and SmackDown’s women’s divisions, and quickly changed the lives of five women with overlapping, yet unique, journeys to the stage they all hoped to reach throughout their careers.

Morgan, the youngest of the five women who debuted at just 23 years old, also spent the longest stretch at the Performance Center. She had a lot to learn, but picked up quite a bit by watching the likes of Flair, Bayley, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch, who were all coming into their own when she first started training.

“When I arrived at the Performance Center, I was 20 years old,” said Morgan. “So I was like the baby of the building. I definitely wasn’t mature as I should have been. Definitely wasn’t as responsible as I should’ve been. But they were really patient with me.”

The Interview continues with how Liv found out she was getting called up to the Main Roster:

“I received an email saying that they were going to fly me in to do a dark match — an un-televised match on SmackDown,” said Morgan “So I was like, ‘Okay, cool.’ I was super excited for the opportunity to wrestle in front of a bigger crowd. So I just packed my bags under the assumption that I was just going to have a dark match.”

“We get to Raw and we kind of get pulled aside in a room and we’re told that we’d be going to Raw or SmackDown,” continued Morgan. “I didn’t expect it at all. I was completely surprised and, of course, I’m so emotional and such a baby. I started crying. I grew up a little poor girl from New Jersey. I shouldn’t be here, but somehow, in this universe, I made it here in the WWE”

Though their similarly-themed debuts are bound to tie these two trios together for right now, their compositions should ultimately lead down very different paths now that their part of the Raw and SmackDown rosters. While Rose and Deville will learn under a veteran in Paige, Riott and Morgan have lengthy independent records and a friendship that should serve them well in defining themselves among the already established stars of SmackDown.
