The team came in second in the five-team tag team turmoil match at WM 37. Before they could enter the ring, fans started noticing their outfits. Their ring gear bore an uncanny resemblance to DC Comics characters Joker (Riott) and Harley Quinn (Morgan).

The Riott Squad lasted the longest in the match as they defeated Carmella and Billie Kay along with Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose. But unfortunately, they fell short in front of the team of Tamina and Natalya.

Morgan already has had the reputation of having a Harley-like demeanor, and this outfit added more to that. Before Morgan, former WWE Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss also sported some Harley Quinn-inspired looks.

WWE Universe reacts to the ring gears of The Riott Squad

Following the appearance of Ruby and Liv, WWE Universe was quick to pick up the reference. Twitter was buzzing with the praise of their outfits. Here are some of the tweets below –

Apart from Riott Squad and Bliss, some of the Superstars who are known for their iconic pop culture-inspired ring gears are Seth Rollins, Rey Mysterio, and MVP.

WWE Universe has been very vocal about the ill-treatment of tag teams in the tag team division. The first outrage happened when the management broke up former Tag Team Champions, The IICONICS, only to put random female superstars into teams.

While the team of Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler resembles the Tag Team Hell No, there is no plausible reason for WWE to not give Riott Squad a push in the right direction.

“I want to win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships,” Liv told Dayton 24/7 in a recent interview. “If I had the choice, Ruby and I are going to win our first championships in WWE and it’s going to be the Tag Team Championships and all is going to be right in the world.”

However, tonight was not their night. Hopefully, WWE will soon recognize their talent as a Tag Team and give them the push The Squad deserves.
