Jim Cornette took a shot at Liv Morgan after her recent brawl against Ronda Rousey on SmackDown.
Following Rousey’s recent victory over Natalya on the blue mark, she was confronted by Morgan ahead of their match at Extreme Rules. The 28-year-old stepped out into the ring with a baseball bat in his hand.
speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, Cornette claimed that Morgan might have struggled to lift the baseball bat. He further talked about her swinging the bat only to have Rousey kick her in the stomach.
“Then the music plays here, Liv Morgan comes out with a baseball bat. So now you’ve got this absurdly plastic painted Barbie, all five foot two and 92 pounds of her, pulled out, dragging a baseball bat. I thought maybe it was because it was too heavy for her to lift. And then they stand there and face each other, her and Ronda, and then she goes and swings the bat at Ronda and Ronda kicks it right in the stomach. said Jim Cornet [H/T: TJR Wrestling]
Jim Cornette further slammed Liv Morgan for her attempts to hit Ronda Rousey with the bat
In a follow-up to the same conversation, Jim Cornette further criticized Liv Morgan for hitting the baseball three feet above where Ronda Rousey’s head was.
He implied that by doing so, Morgan could have exposed herself and Rousey at the same time.
“Then stops it and then it starts swinging again. And Ronda gets out of the way and Liv Morgan hits the ring post three feet above where Ronda Rousey’s head was. I mean there was no chance of an accident here. Why would you even do something like that, you can see where the human being in front of you is right? So swing and if they don’t move, apologize, right?” Jim Cornette said.
Cornette further added that Morgan should have tried to swing the bat and at least try to make it look good.
“But if you know they’re going to move and you try to make it look good, you’re going to swing somewhere close to where their head was right. Try to go maybe be just above the top or to the side or just hope they drop or whatever. [go] three feet, just to be sure. adds Jim Cornette
Morgan will once again defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship, Ronda Rousey, on the upcoming Extreme Rules show.
