Liv Morgan entered WWE’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view event on Saturday night without any guarantees she would leave Las Vegas with a title shot, let alone the strap around her waist.
Morgan’s match with Alexa Bliss, Asuka, Becky Lynch, Lacey Evans, Raquel Rodriguez and Shotzi opened up the event.
To win the match, the person had to climb the ladder and obtain the brief case with the contract for an immediate 1-on-1 for a women’s title on their respective brands (RAW and SmackDown)
It appeared at first Lynch had the upper hand in getting another shot at thew title. She was climbing up one ladder while Morgan was climbing up an adjacent ladder in a race for the briefcase.
Lynch kicked the ladder Morgan was on toward the ropes but Morgan was able to keep her balance by putting one of her feet on the ropes.
All she would have to do at that point was to wait for the right opportunity – which came a few matches later.
Ronda Rousey fought Natalya for the SmackDown women’s championship. Rousey would defend her title successfully by applying the ankle lock on Natalya for the win.
Morgan rushed down to the ring and cashed in her contract immediately. She managed to roll out of the ankle lock from Rousey and pin the former UFC star for the victory.
For some fans, though, that didn’t detract from how much they enjoyed this show, and despite how underwhelming this show felt, WWE did give them plenty of things to cheer for on this pay-per-view.
WWE really frontloaded this show with feel-good moments knowing what they planned to deliver in the main event. Two of those moments involved up-and-coming babyface, Liv Morgan
