A new report has shed some light on the fan reaction to Liv Morgan since she shocked the world at Money In The Bank and became SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Las Vegas was a happy hunting ground for Liv Morgan at Money In The Bank as she made a huge splash twice on the show. In the opening match of the night, Morgan defeated Becky Lynch, Asuka, Lacey Evans, Raquel Rodriguez, Shotzi, and Alexa Bliss to claim the all-important briefcase and become Miss Money In The Bank.
Not content with just a contract to take home, Liv Morgan set her sights on the big prize later in the night.
Ronda Rousey put her SmackDown Women’s Championship on the line against Natalya later in the evening, with the former UFC star seemingly hurting her knee during the bout. Rousey managed to defeat her former friend but was left significantly weakened which allowed Liv Morgan to pounce.
Morgan cashed in her contract there and then and after escaping from an ankle lock she was able to roll up Rousey for the win and the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
Now Mike Johnson of PWInsider has reported that a WWE source who toured with the SmackDown brand recently said that they’d never heard louder crowd reactions for Morgan. In addition, it was said to be obvious just looking at the crowd that the SmackDown Women’s Champion is selling more merchandise than before.
Liv Morgan has her work cut out for her to remain SmackDown Women’s Champion as she will put her title on the line against Ronda Rousey at SummerSlam.
