In
one
of
the
co-main-events
of
the
2022
WWE
Extreme
Rules
premium
live
event
set
for
October
8,
Liv
Morgan
will
defend
her
Smackdown
Women’s
Title
against
Ronda
Rousey.

Heading
into
this
week’s
Smackdown,
WWE
announced
the
following
lineup

Ronda
Rousey
vs.
Lacey
Evans
vs.
Natalya
vs.
Sonya
Deville
vs.
Xia
Li
in
a
Fatal
5-Way
Elimination
Match
to
determine
the
new
Number-One
Contender
for
SmackDown
Women’s
Championship.

With
Morgan
sitting
in
the
audience,
Ronda
Rousey
emerged
as
the
winner
of
the
match
to
secure
another
title
match
opportunity
at
the
upcoming
PLE.

Natalya
was
the
first
woman
to
be
eliminated
after
Rousey
submitted
her
with
the
Armbar.
Evans
and
Li
were
eliminated
quickly,
afterward
via
Rousey
and
Deville’s
respective
Armbar
and
Head
Lock
Choke-Hold.

The
match
then
came
down
to
Rousey
and
Deville
as
both
of
them
showcased
their
previous
MMA
background.
Ultimately,
The
Baddest
Woman
on
the
Planet
prevailed
as
she
secured
the
victory
by
hitting
Piper’s
Pit
followed
by
the
Ankle
Lock
submission,
forcing
Deville
to
tap
out.

Soon
after
the
win,
Liv
Morgan
(c)
vs.
Ronda
Rousey
for
the
SmackDown
Women’s
Championship
was
confirmed
for
Extreme
Rules
2022.

Morgan’s
previous
challenger
and
Ronda’s
best
buddy,
Shayna
Baszler
congratulated
Rousey
for
the
future
opportunity
when
the
latter
advised
her
to
come
to
her
after
she
becomes
a
bone-breaker
again.

Back
at
Summerslam,
Liv
Morgan
retained
her
SmackDown
Women’s
Championship
against
Ronda
Rousey.
The
match
finish
was
controversial
as
Ronda
made
Liv
tap
out
with
the
Armbar.

But
due
to
Ronda’s
shoulders
being
on
the
mat,
the
referee
began
counting
the
pin
at
the
same
time
that
Liv
tapped
out.
He
never
saw
Liv’s
tap-out
and
hence
got
awarded
the
victory
to
Liv
via
pinfall.

The
former
champion
wasn’t
happy
with
the
decision
and
she
proceeded
to
attack
both
Liv
and
the
referee
after
the
match
to
get
fined
and
suspended.
It
was
last
week
that
WWE
reinstated
Ronda
to
the
Smackdown
roster
after
she
paid
her
fine,
a
few
weeks
ago.

WWE

Saturday,
October
8
at

Ohio.
