Here’s a brief rundown of the show’s match results:
– Morgan defeated Rousey for the SmackDown Women’s title after cashing in her Money in the Bank contract
Moment of the night: Liv Morgan cashes in on Ronda Rousey
Liv Morgan’s first title win has been long overdue.
For years she’s had the support of fans, her fellow Superstars and people behind the scenes — but championship gold has always alluded her.
Going into the show, I thought Liv had a small chance of winning the contract, but if you had told me she’d end the night taking Rousey’s title, I would have said I’d need to see it to believe it.
That’s what made this one of the most pleasant surprises on WWE TV in years. Especially considering Ronda was so cordial after.
Hopefully, this isn’t the end of Rousey’s second run in WWE. There’s still plenty she could do on SmackDown until WrestleMania season.
If this is the last we see of her for awhile, though, Ronda should be commended for how she helped the division these last few months.
For now, however, it’s time for Liv to shine.
Best match: The Usos vs. The Street Profits
When two teams click, they’re able to make magic in the ring together.
That’s exactly what happened in this match.
Fans truly had no idea who would come out on top, too, allowing for nail-biting moments and believable/exciting nearfalls. Either team could’ve won and it would’ve felt appropriate.
Plus, with the ref not seeing Montez’s shoulder being up during the pinfall, I assume they’ll run it back at SummerSlam.
