WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: A NEW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER, A NEW KROSS TO BEAR FOR ROMAN, LIV NOT FEELING THE LOVE, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2022-08-05 21:58:00

We are back and Sami knocks on the door again and the Usos tell Sami they were about to text Sami.  Jimmy asks Sami to do Paul's job to make sure that everything is right for Roman tonight.  Sami says that isn't his job but Jimmy says it would mean a lot for Roman.  Sami agrees to do it and promises some huge pyro.

Kayla Braxton is in the ring and she brings out Smackdown Women's Champion Liv Morgan.

Liv walks to the ring with her arm in a brace.

Kayla asks Liv about being in the ring with Ronda and what Ronda did after the match.  

Liv says she is feeling so many different emotions.  When she looks at the title.  She says she wants to address the elephant in the room while people chant 'You Tapped Out'.  Liv says she appreciates being called out on her s***.  She wants to say that this championship means everything to her.  That is why she was able to endure arm bar after arm bar after arm bar.  She says she survived three of Ronda's arm bars.  She tapped after she thought the referee counted three.
