• Update On How Long Ronda Rousey’s WWE Suspension Will Last
In the co-main event of WWE SummerSlam 2022, Liv Morgan retained the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Ronda Rousey.
The finish of this match was controversial. Ronda was on her back and had Liv trapped in the Armbar.
Due to Ronda’s shoulders being on the mat, the referee began counting the pin and at the same time Liv tapped out.
However, the referee didn’t see Liv’s tap and awarded the victory to Morgan via pinfall.
Rousey wasn’t happy about this and attacked both Liv & the referee after the match.
WWE went on to suspend Rousey for her actions (which is a storyline). Below is what they posted:
“Following her attack on referee Dan Engler at SummerSlam, Ronda Rousey has been fined an undisclosed amount and will be suspended.
An irate Rousey attacked the official after her SmackDown Women’s Title Match, claiming he missed Liv Morgan tapping out to the Armbar while he counted the pinfall.
Due to her suspension, Rousey will not appear on this week’s Friday Night SmackDown.”
According to the Wrestling Observer, this suspension won’t last long because Rousey is scheduled to be a part of the Clash At The Castle premium live event on September 3rd in the UK:
“Not that long. I mean, she’s booked on the Cardiff show, so she’s going to be unsuspended at least before – it’s not going to be a month, put it that way because she’s got to be back for the pay-per-view show.”
