Liv Morgan missed several opportunities for captured the Women’s Championship before last night’s Money in the Bank premium live event. She competed with six other competitors in the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. In the end, Liv Morgan was able to grab the MITB briefcase. She quickly cashed her Money in the Bank contract just like previous Women’s MITB holders.
After Ronda Rousey retained the SmackDown Women’s Championship, Liv Morgan waited no time, cashed her MITB contract on Rousey, and became the SmackDown Women’s Champion. Later, Rousey hugged Liv and left the ring.

Currently, the company has announced only two matches for SummerSlam, which is scheduled to take place on July 30th.
