No matter what they do, sometimes wrestlers get in trouble in real life, and now we have legal updates on WWE and AEW stars.
Specifically, in the last year, WWE Superstar Liv Morgan and AEW star Cash Wheeler got themselves in varying degrees of trouble in Florida.
Unfortunately, the news only seems positive for one, but lets dive into those updates.
Liv Morgan got in trouble in December. She was pulled over and hit with a charge of possessing synthetic THC.
Here’s the kicker. According to PWInsider, the report indicates that the state of Florida charged her for that, but has no labs that can test to prove it.
As such, her case was closed. She is shown to have paid a fine, but did not admit to any guilt.
We had already heard that she had no issues with WWE officials, or rather they had no issues with her after the arrest.
Something tells me Rob Van Dam wishes the company had a similar attitude with him way back when. Poor guy was just ahead of his time.

As for Morgan, she returned to action at the Royal Rumble and is in the mix for a spot in the Elimination Chamber later this month.
It will be nice to see her showing up in the RAW or SmackDown results, which you can check here.
By all accounts, the incident is behind her and it’s smooth sailing for the now-returned WWE Superstar.
Legal Updates On WWE And AEW Stars
As for AEW’s Cash Wheeler, one half of FTR? Not so much.
Wheeler was arrested in Orange County, Florida back in August of 2023.
He was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm.
According to PWInsider, county prosecutors have decided to move forward with the criminal charges.
Per reports, Wheeler flashed a gun at another individual in a case of apparent road rage.
The decision to move forward came earlier this month. The next hearing set to happen in a couple weeks on February 20.
Should the court find him guilty, he has a chance to serve up to five years in jail, five years probation and a $5,000 fine.
In spite of the legal proceedings, Wheeler has not missed much time for AEW.
