For weeks now, Evans has been taking out Aliyah prior to their matches causing the bouts to never take place. Finally, she was set to get her match against Evans but instead, Shotzi appeared in the ring. Evans was not on the show and it was said by commentary that she was not medically cleared to compete. Also it was said that Shotzi “manipulated” her way into the match with Adam Pearce.
Shotzi was able to rally to achieve victory after hitting her Never Wake Up finisher.
After this match finished up, a segment backstage took place. SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan and Ronda Rousey were taking photos for their moving graphics for SummerSlam. They were interrupted by Natalya and Sonya Deville. Natalya still taking credit for Morgan’s victory at Money in the Bank while Deville said that Rousey attacked her last week only after she was defeated by Raquel Rodriguez.
With Shotzi still left in the ring from her victory, she grabbed a mic but was interrupted by Rousey who stormed off from the backstage segment. She would take down Shotzi to grab the mic and taunt the crowd.
WWE posted on their social media after the match a video of Shotzi putting the women’s roster on notice saying her win tonight was to show them all exactly what she is capable of. More specifically she called out Rousey saying she was at the top of her list.
