I guess you can’t do that. According to a report from WWE.com, Ronda Rousey has been fined an undisclosed amount and will be suspended from the company. This is due to her attack on referee Dan Engler at SummerSlam 2022, following her match with Liv Morgan for the Smackdown Women’s Championship.
The attack came after Rousey was upset that she made Morgan tap out to an arm bar submission; however, she did so while her shoulders were on the mat and the referee counted to three. The referee did not see the tap, and as a result, Morgan retained her championship.
Due to her suspension, Rousey will not appear on this week’s Friday Night SmackDown.
We will continue to monitor the story and provide updates as they become available.
This is a safe way to write Rousey off of television and not make the champion look weak. On paper, it would seem like this was a complete mismatch at SummerSlam and might not have been believable to have the champion defeat such a decorated combat sports veteran. We will see where this goes in the future; I could still see them bringing Rousey back for Clash at the Castle.
