Ronda Rousey fined and suspended for attacking WWE official at SummerSlam
Following her attack on referee Dan Engler at SummerSlam, Ronda Rousey has been fined an undisclosed amount and will be suspended.
An irate Rousey attacked the official after her SmackDown Women’s Title Match, claiming he missed Liv Morgan tapping out to the Armbar while he counted the pinfall.
Due to her suspension, Rousey will not appear on this week’s Friday Night SmackDown.
At Money in the Bank last month, Liv Morgan cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase on the same night she won it to realize her dreams and become SmackDown Women’s Champion.
At SummerSlam, Rousey was out to prove that Morgan’s victory was a fluke and without the briefcase, she never would’ve stood a chance.
So, when Rousey lost the match due to a bad call from referee Dan Engler, she proceeded to get in his face before slamming him to the mat and tightly locking him in an arm bar.
These actions are never received well by WWE management. For the second time in her WWE career, Ronda Rousey has been suspended indefinitely.
Only time will tell whether she challenges Morgan again for the title, but Rousey will have to plead her case while sitting at home.
Meanwhile, things are looking up for Liv Morgan, who became the first WWE superstar to defeat Ronda Rousey twice.
On Monday, Rousey posted a series of photos from her match against Morgan to Instagram and called out the WWE within the post’s caption.
“Hey @wwe if you guys could stop screwing me to put over your golden girls at every major ppv that’d be greaaaaaat,” Rousey wrote.
In response to the decision that Rousey took issue with, she also retweeted a Twitter post from WWE television host Greg Miller in the immediate aftermath of SummerSlam in which Miller accused Morgan of having “won the championship by taking advantage of the situation and retained it by being a cheating coward.”
