SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Liv Morgan will defend the WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship against Ronda Rousey at Summerslam. WWE announced the news on social media after this week’s episode of Smackdown.
Morgan defeated Rousey to win the Smackdown Women’s Championship at the Money in the Bank event last week. Morgan won the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match to secure an opportunity at the title, but then cashed in that opportunity on Rousey later in the show. Morgan ran out seconds after Rousey defeated Natalya to retain the title and then countered a Rousey ankle lock submission for the pin.
It is official!
