Liv Morgan won the SmackDown Women’s Championship from Ronda Rousey at Money in Bank. Morgan successfully retained her title against the baddest Woman on the Planet at SummerSlam. The win, however, was controversial as Morgan tapped out at the same time the referee’s hand hit the mat for the third count.
Liv Morgan was on SmackDown this week to address her controversial win over Ronda Rousey. For those not in the know, Rousey turned on Morgan after the match and put her in an armbar until Liv managed to exit the ring. Rousey attacked the referee after the match as well.
Morgan cut a promo in which she put over her will power to retain her title. The crowd, however, started chanting “you tapped out” and completely turned against her during the promo. Rhea Ripley was watching and tweeted out an interesting offer for Liv Morgan to consider.
Before Liv Morgan moved to SmackDown, there were plans to involve her in a storyline with The Judgment Day. That was teased during her brief affiliation with AJ Styles and Finn Balor before the latter turned on Edge. The plans, however, got nixed altogether.
