Champions Liv Morgan And Bianca Belair Team Up Following Their Money In The Bank Success
Liv Morgan and Bianca Belair are riding high following their respective victories at at Money in the Bank.
One could almost hear Queen’s “We Are the Champions” blaring during WWE’s Monday Night Raw as fellow champs Liv Morgan and Bianca Belair teamed up following their respective Money in the Bank triumphs.
During Monday’s show, Liv Morgan came out to the ring to celebrate her epic success over the weekend. Not only did she beat out six other women to earn the Money in the Bank briefcase on Saturday, but she also won the SmackDown Women's Championship.
Morgan didn't wait long to cash in her contract for a championship match, immediately challenging Ronda Rousey, who'd picked up an apparent leg injury while successfully defending her title against Natalya earlier in the evening. By the end of it, Morgan beat the Rousey with a schoolboy roll-up.
Morgan, who has been a force to be reckoned with ever since she departed from The Riott Squad, took the ring to celebrate her wins on Monday. But it wasn’t long before she had company.
As she thanked her adoring fans, Natalya appeared to demand her share of credit, arguing that if she hadn’t damaged Ronda's knee, then Morgan couldn’t have become SmackDown champ.
Natalya then challenged Liv to a championship match before Carmella interrupted to tell them both to duke it out on SmackDown. But she also threw in some insults to Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair, who had successfully defended her title against Carmella on Saturday. That didn't sit well with Belair who swooped in and attacked.
At this point, Adam Pearce announced that the champions would take on Natalya and Carmella, immediately.
And an official match began!
During the match, Natalya put Morgan in a sharpshooter but Belair used her braid as a rope to rescue her fellow champ. Morgan then managed to pull herself into the corner while Belair tagged in. She appeared to have the upper hand on Natalya but Carmella snuck in and kicked Belair’s head into the ring post.
In another blow to the champs, later in the fight, Carmella drove Belair into a ring post after she halted a dive attempt.
But that champion energy stayed wouldn't die. Morgan knocked Carmella off the apron before beating Natalya with an Oblivion. The two champs then celebrated their win.
