Shayna Baszler Explains Strategy Behind Liv Morgan SmackDown Attack

Shayna Baszler Explains Strategy Behind Liv Morgan SmackDown Attack WWE

Shayna Baszler has explained why she didn’t attack Liv Morgan’s arm on the August 19 edition of SmackDown.

Baszler will challenge for Morgan’s SmackDown Women’s Championship at WWE Clash At The Castle on September 3.

The Queen of Spades attacked Morgan after her match on this week’s episode of SmackDown, threatening to break her ‘injured’ arm, before kicking her in the face instead.

On SmackDown LowDown, Baszler stated that the only reason she didn’t break Morgan’s arm is because she needs her to be medically cleared to compete at the upcoming premium live event.

Baszler stated:

“I am sick and tired of everyone accusing me of not pulling the trigger or restraint or however you wanna word it, okay? What I did tonight was strategic. I need Liv Morgan to be medically okay in Cardiff.

“Okay, as much as I relish in the sound of tearing people’s limbs off like when you pull the turkey leg off at Thanksgiving, that will be so much sweeter when I’m walking out with her limb and the title, at the same time, at Clash at the Castle. That wasn’t restraint, that was strategy. I need Liv in Cardiff and now I made sure she’s gonna be there. Watch me.”

Morgan won the SmackDown Women’s Championship from Ronda Rousey after cashing in her Money in the Bank contract in July. She defended the gold against Rousey at SummerSlam, controversially retaining after pinning the former UFC star while tapping out to her armbar.
