After Ruby Riott had been berated and beaten by The IIconics on WWE Raw over these past few weeks, many presumed that this would all lead to former Riott Squad pal Liv Morgan teaming up with Ruby to tackle the obnoxious Australian duo.
Instead, last night’s Raw saw Bianca Belair joining forces with Riott – but that wasn’t the original plan.
According Wrestling Observer Radio, like we all expected, it was indeed meant to be Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott re-teaming to battle Peyton Royce and Billie Kay.
Those plans were obviously changed, and that’s down to Morgan having been absent from WWE programming since late June. There’s no word right now on just why Liv is out of action, but her absence from TV came at a time when WWE was looking to bring these former Riott Squad members back together.
As for Bianca Belair, it’s fantastic to finally see the EST back on main WWE programming, with her appearances having been few and far between since Belair debuted on Raw the night after WrestleMania 36. In fact, Belair hadn’t competed on Raw for nearly three months – her last in-ring activity coming in a squash win over Santana Garrett on April 20.
Whether Ruby Riott and Bianca Belair becomes a permanent arrangement, we’ll have to wait and see. Likewise, it remains to be seen what WWE will do with Liv Morgan as and when she returns to TV.
