They have a plan for that. Last weekend’s Money In The Bank event was a rather eventful night for WWE. Not only did the company have the show’s two namesake matches, but Miss Money In The Bank Liv Morgan cashed in her briefcase to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion. That was a huge jump up for Morgan and it seems that WWE might have something in mind for her.
The Canadian Tire Center in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada is hosting a WWE live event on August 20. The advertisment for the event includes Morgan defending the SmackDown Women’s Title against both Natalya and Ronda Rousey. While the card is subject to change, this show takes place after Summerslam on July 30, suggesting that Morgan could be holding the title beyond the next major event. Morgan cashed in her briefcase on Rousey, following a successful titel defense against Natalya.

Opinion: I would really hope that WWE has at least some kind of longer term planning for Morgan, as you do not want it to be a repeat of what happened to Nikki Ash last year. Just having her win the title and then drop it almost immediately does nothing for Morgan so holding onto it and even getting a few wins is a good thing. I’m not sure if that is what WWE is going to do, but at least they are trying something here.
What do you think of the plan? How will Morgan’s title reign go? Let us know in the comments below.
