Brie Bella Accidentally Knocked Out Liv Morgan on Monday Night Raw, Reminding Us That Even Fake Fighting Can Hurt Like Hell

Yeah yeah yeah, we all know. Wrestling is fake. I don’t watch it thinking I’m actually getting a combat sport that isn’t staged or has a predetermined outcome. It’s a television sitcom that combines sometimes decent story lines and some of the most athletically gifted human beings on the planet.

Every now and then we’re reminded that things can go wrong in the ring if someone is rusty or an opponent isn’t expecting certain moves. Tonight, Liv Morgan appeared to be knocked out cold by Brie Bella’s “Yes Kicks”. We might not know the real story anytime soon, but it looks like Brie Bella unintentionally caught Liv with a kick to the face, which stunned her, leaving her unprepared for the next kick to knock her out cold.

I hope Liv is ok, and by all accounts it sounds like she’s fine and is being evaluated backstage. She ended up finishing the match after all. Must’ve been a hockey player in a former life.

Now back to football.
