A selfless star. The WWE women’s division has come a long way and a lot of that is due to their star power. The company has a group of top names who have taken the division further than almost anyone could have thought possible. However, at some point you need someone new to fill in the spots, and that seems to be what one of the top starts wanted to do with a new face.
Over the weekend, Liv Morgan defeated Ronda Rousey at Money In The Bank to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion. According to Rousey’s personal photographer Lazie the Savage on his Instagram stories, Rousey herself demanded that Morgan win the title, calling her the most passionate pro wrestler. The title win was the first in Morgan’s WWE career and she is likely defending the title against Rousey in a rematch at Summerslam.

Opinion: Assuming this is something that Rousey pushed for, it does give me a bit more respect for her. I’m not sure how long Morgan is going to hold the title, but at least she got the first major win of her career. That is something that she will be able to build from throughout the rest of her career and hopefully this is the first of several successes for Morgan. If Rousey had something to do with that, good for her.
What do you think of the win? What does it mean if Rousey pushed for it? Let us know in the comments below.
