The current plan is for Ronda Rousey to challenge Liv Morgan for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at SummerSlam.
Morgan defeated Rousey for the title on Saturday after cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase she won earlier that night. According to comments made by Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, the plan is for Morgan and Rousey to face each other on Saturday, July 30 in Nashville.
“Right now the plan is Liv Morgan vs. Ronda Rousey at SummerSlam, which kind of surprises me in a lot of ways,” Meltzer said on the show. “They didn’t leave with any heat. I mean, Ronda just hugged her, walked out of the ring, let her have her moment.”
“It is interesting, though, because I think almost everybody figured it would be Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey at SummerSlam and it’s not,” he continued.
Morgan became the 12th wrestler in history to win the Smackdown Women’s Championship with her victory over Rousey at Money in the Bank. It was the 23rd time in history the belt has changed hands.
