Ronda Rousey Suspended By WWE Following SummerSlam Post-Match Attack

No Ronda Rousey for at least one week

Ronda Rousey has been suspended in storyline following Saturday's SummerSlam pay-per-view. 

WWE announced on Monday that Rousey had been fined an undisclosed amount and suspended. As a result, she will miss this week's edition of Friday Night SmackDown. 

The company noted Rousey had been suspended due to her post-match attack of referee Dan Engler at SummerSlam. Rousey attacked the official in retaliation for the official not spotting Liv Morgan tapping out while Rousey had the Armbar applied during their SmackDown Women's Title match. Instead, the official counted a pin on Rousey as both of her shoulders were down on the mat, meaning Liv Morgan retained her title.

Rousey had previously been SmackDown Women's Champion but Liv Morgan cashed in her Money In The Bank briefcase on July 2 to win the gold. The Baddest Woman On The Planet returned to WWE at January's Royal Rumble pay-per-view, going on to win the Women's Royal Rumble in her first WWE appearance since 2019's WrestleMania 35.
