Before Liv Morgan cashed in her Money in the Bank contract, Ronda Rousey faced Natalya for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Though Rousey won that match, it looked like she might have hurt her knees during the match. And Morgan sensed that opportunity and cashed in her Money in the Bank contract on ‘The Baddest Woman in the Planet‘.

As soon as the bell rang, Liv Morgan tried to kick Ronda Rousey. But Rousey caught her leg and locked her in an Angle lock. It looked like Morgan might tap out and she would then have to repent for her decision to cash in on Ronda Rousey.
