Excitement for Liv Morgan was the big takeaway from this year’s Money in the Bank, especially after she turned her show-opening ladder match victory into a SmackDown Women’s championship.
But the show, and the women’s battle for the briefcase, had its critics. This being 2022 and the internet being what it is, a lot of that criticism pulled no punches and got personal.
Some of it was directed at Shotzi, who had enough and posted this to her Twitter:
There are 3 things I care about at the end of a match. Is everyone safe? Did everyone have fun? Did the crowd react? Nobody got hurt. We all had a blast and the Vegas crowd was HotHotHot!
I felt on top of the world after that match and was so excited to finally have my first hardcore match in over a year. I wouldn’t have done anything I didn’t practice or thought I couldn’t do safely.
But I’m not a wrestle robot, I’m human and slips happen especially in a CHAOTIC UNPREDICTABLE ladder match! I can take a joke and laugh at myself (One of the first things I said was “I can’t wait to see that spot on botchamania”) but comments like “you should be fired” and other terrible things admittedly hit hard. I had to have a few friends wipe the tears off my face and slap some sense into me and remind me WHO THE F I AM!
That being said, all my haters can SUCK MY BIG GIANT HAIRY MANGOS!
She’s received a ton of support from fellow wrestlers, including match-mate Alexa Bliss:
This is why I don’t like Twitter most of the time - ppl are always to bash everything - if people only knew what all goes into what we do - & the chaos of that day haha everyone is safe & we all had fun @ShotziWWE https://t.co/7FZ9qzKkWV— Lexi (Kaufman) Cabrera (@AlexaBliss_WWE) July 4, 2022
There’s also been the folks who have to turn everything into an AEW vs. WWE thing, bringing up Shotzi posting a GIF of a person falling onto a bed while the web was having a laugh about the production of Chris Jericho’s 2021 Blood & Guts fall. But if you can’t or won’t see the differences between that and calling for someone’s job or personally attacking them, I can’t help you.
What I’d like some help with? I’m stuck on the whole mangoes thing. I guess it’s just a euphemism/metaphor? The former Blackheart’s always had a bit of a ball fixation. One thing‘s for sure. Whatever she’s referring to, they are definitely hairy.

Just so you know what you’re getting into, haters.
