As previously reported, former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion “The Baddest Woman On The Planet” Ronda Rousey came up short on her quest to regain the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship when she faced the current WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan at this past Saturday night’s WWE SummerSlam Event. This was a rematch from last month’s WWE Money In The Bank Event, which saw Liv win the MITB contract and cash-in a little over two hours later on Ronda Rousey to become the current WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Rousey did not take her loss well as she attacked the WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion and WWE official Dan Engler immediately following the match. Ronda Rousey didn’t handle the situation well even though she had a legitimate argument of why she did what she did when her shoulder was down and WWE official Dan Engler counted 1-2-3 despite Morgan taping out right before the three count. As a result of Ronda Rousey’s actions, WWE has announced a storyline fine and suspension for the UFC Hall of Famer. Due to the suspension, Ronda is not scheduled to appear on Friday night’s episode of WWE SmackDown and there was no word at the time of how long The Baddest Woman On The Planet will be out of the storylines.
Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that Ronda will not be gone for a long time as she is currently booked on the Clash At The Castle Event and the WWE needs to unsuspend her and have her return to the storylines for the build up to Clash At The Castle, so Ronda Rousey will be out of the storylines for less than a month.
This is what Dave Meltzer said:
“Not that long. She’s booked on the Cardiff [Clash at the Castle] show, so she’s going to be unsuspended at least before…I don’t know when she comes back. She’ll be out for I don’t know how long, but 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.”
