Wrestling expert and former WWE manager Dutch Mantell has pointed out a dangerous botch that happened on SmackDown last Friday. He took notice of the botch that involved Liv Morgan, Raquel Rodriguez and Sonya Deville. Liv Morgan seemed to have messed up the spot.
Morgan was competing with Shotzi, Raquel Rodriguez, Xia Li, Sonya Deville, and Lacey Evans in a six pack challenge. It was to determine the No. 1 contender for Ronda Rousey’s SmackDown Woman’s title at the upcoming Survivor Series on November 27th.
Since the match involved 6 competitors, it was all over the place and on the outside, as Rodriguez was about to smash Deville through a table, Morgan intervened. She tried doing a cross body from the audience barricade on the two and botched. Her intention was to send them both crashing through the said table behind but couldn’t execute the move correctly. Instead, all of them fell on the floor and she narrowly escaped getting injured. She would have gone face first on the side of the table hadn’t it been for Raquel’s presence of mind. The big woman single-handedly held on to Liv, saving her from getting seriously hurt in the process.
Dutch Mantell shared the video of this incident while tweeting
“I’ve watched this over and over and still can’t decide what the plan was. This was a BOTCH and you don’t see many from WWE. The reason…inexperience and trying to do a 3 way table spot. @WSI_YouTube”

He contributed the botch due to inexperience. Other reports suggest that this botch happened due to miscommunication and wasn’t entirely Liv’s fault.
Shotzi pinned Lacey Evans in the end and won the match.
Morgan’s aggressive nature has been the norm since she lost her SmackDown Woman’s Title back to Rousey at Extreme Rules. Last week too, she had put Sonya through a table ringside while sacrificing herself on top of her.

We have seen her putting opponents through tables regularly, indicating this may be her new thing now.
