In response to the poor booking of the women’s division, WWE has now confirmed a new matchup for Extreme Rules 2021. Carmella vs. Liv Morgan has been made official for the show in what appears to be a matchup between the two underutilized performers. It will be a big deal for the two as they share the ring in a PPV show.
This week’s SmackDown on FOX saw Morgan and Toni Storm defeat Carmella and Zelina Vega via count-out after Carmella assumed that her nose was broken by Morgan. After the match, Morgan issued a challenge to Carmella for Extreme Rules 2021. She also promised to make her look as ugly on the outside as she is from the inside.
WWE Officials Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville later confirmed Morgan vs. Carmella for Extreme Rules 2021 during a segment in the trainer’s room. Vega then declared that in order to get Carmella at the PPV, Morgan first has to face her next Friday on the go-home SmackDown episode. WWE then also announced Morgan vs. Vega match lineup for next Friday.
Morgan and Carmella have been feuding all this summer. While Mella has been wasting opportunities, Morgan barely gets one, which is the main issue of the storyline. Carmella defeated Morgan on the June 4 SmackDown, while Morgan then pinned Carmella on the June 11 and June 25 SmackDown shows.
Carmella vs. Liv Morgan booking at Extreme Rules 2021 has also received praise on the internet since WWE nixed out a tag team match scheduled for the bygone MSG edition, last week. Not only the same tag-team lineup was hosted this week but two of those names will now get to share the ring at a PPV. Plus, this will also mark the first singles outing for Liv Morgan on a PPV card.
