WWE has now confirmed that Liv Morgan suffered a concussion due to this incident:
“Liv Morgan has a concussion and is going through the proper protocol under WWE’s comprehensive wellness program.”
Former WWE Women’s Champion and Impact Wrestling Hall of Famer Gail Kim defended Brie Bella and tweeted the following:
I’m sure it was an accident. We are in the world of pro wrestling after all. Injuries unfortunately happen. https://t.co/VnXR1nVF9C

As we noted before, ECW Legend Tommy Dreamer appeared on Busted Open Radio and defended Brie Bella as well. Below is what Dreamer said:
“For anyone who said its a ‘botched spot’ or that Brie was at fault, they are 100% incorrect. No one ever goes in there with the intent to injure their opponent. It was nobody’s fault, it was a mistimed thing.”
