WWE booked a rematch between Ronda Rousey and Morgan for the SmackDown Women’s Title at SummerSlam which ended with Rousey knocking Morgan out seconds before the referee counted three when Rousey’s shoulders were pinned to the mat. Morgan got the win. Rousey turned by attacking Morgan and the umpire after the game.
Although WWE suspended Rousey from the storyline, she is expected to be back on TV soon.
