The latest battle between Ronda Rousey and Liv Morgan saw the two collide at WWE Extreme Rules on October 8th, where they met in a namesake match for the latter’s SmackDown Women’s Championship. Ultimately, ‘The Baddest Woman on the Planet’ reclaimed the title from Morgan.
Ronda Rousey‘s patented Armbar submission, albeit with the assistance of a broken table leg, got her the victory, ending Liv’s reign at 98 days. As spotted, Morgan seemed to take pleasure in the submission, having a wicked smile across her face as her hand was hitting the mat which appeared to be the beginning of a character change.
Ronda Rousey Believes Liv Morgan Is “Into That Kind Of Thing”
Discussing the hilarious reaction Liv Morgan had to her signature hold in a recent livestream on her YouTube channel, Ronda Rousey stated that many would be smiling if they were in a similar position, before uttering how the former Riott Squad member is supposedly “into that sort of thing”:
“Let’s be honest, a lot of people would be smiling in that position. It was kinda handy that there was a broken table right there that I could grab and grind into her neck. But yeah, apparently she’s into that kind of thing.”
The finish of the match came after Liv Morgan sent Ronda Rousey through a table with a top-rope Senton Bomb, a nod to her former partner Ruby Riott. Ruby had previously used the move as a finisher, referring to it as ‘We Riot’. The table ultimately came back to bite Liv when Ronda used it to lead her to victory.
Ronda Rousey has stated previously that this wasn’t the intended finish of the match, with thumbtacks being the desired weapon of choice for her and Liv Morgan. As Rousey herself has revealed, the plan was to have a callback of their controversial SummerSlam finish with the added pain factor of the tacks. Legal reasons were behind WWE opting against this.
