Liv Morgan's unexpected return to the WWE ring has left fans questioning whether the company may have miscalculated the timeline for her recovery, echoing a past misstep made with a former champion 16 years ago. Morgan was forced to relinquish the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship due to an injury, and initial reports suggested she would be absent from television for a significant period.
However, much to everyone's surprise, she made a triumphant comeback this week, raising doubts about the accuracy of the projected recovery time. Drawing parallels to a similar incident from the past, the focus shifts to Mr.
Kennedy, a former United States Champion who faced a misdiagnosis regarding a triceps injury shortly after winning the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania 23. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, acting on the erroneous information, had Kennedy lose the briefcase to Edge and kept him off television.
However, Kennedy defied expectations and reappeared just a month later. Sadly, he failed to recapture the momentum he had prior to his injury.
Liv Morgan's Path to Tag Team Title Redemption?
In the case of Liv Morgan, the story is far from over, and she still has a chance to reclaim the titles she and Raquel Rodriguez were forced to vacate.
Seizing the opportunity, Morgan and Rodriguez confronted the new undisputed tag team champions, Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler, following their recent victory on SmackDown. This confrontation has sparked speculation about a potential tag team title match between the two dominant duos.
It's worth noting that Morgan and Rodriguez originally captured the tag team titles from Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus on a thrilling episode of WWE RAW that aired on April 10, 2023. The victory was marred by Stratus's shocking betrayal of Lynch, revealing her role in the assault on Lita the following week.
Meanwhile, Lynch and Stratus are set to compete in the Women's Money in the Bank ladder match next Saturday, adding further intrigue to their ongoing storyline. The turn of events following Liv Morgan's injury began when she and Raquel Rodriguez were defending their tag team titles against Bayley and Dakota Kai.
Tragically, both Morgan and Kai suffered injuries during the match, with Dakota attempting to shield Liv from harm. As a result, Rodriguez was forced to relinquish the titles, leading to a fatal four-way tag team match on the May 29, 2023, episode of Monday Night RAW to crown new champions.
Ultimately, Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler emerged victorious, solidifying their status as the Undisputed Women's Tag Team Champions. As fans eagerly await the unfolding of this captivating narrative, the question remains: will the newly crowned champions defend their titles against the reunited duo of Raquel and Liv Morgan? Only time will tell if Morgan can overcome her setback and rise again, reclaiming the glory she and Rodriguez were once so close to attaining.
