Backstage, Shane McMahon is with the entire Smackdown Live roster. Shane reminds everyone that the McMahons told everyone on Raw that this is a new era. They have to create the best possible product for the best fans in the world, the WWE Universe. Everyone needs to reach for the brass ring and pull it down. Shane says he wants to thank their former General Manager Paige. Paige walks out and Shane embraces her. Shane says Paige isn’t going anywhere but the role is changing. Everyone claps and chants “thank you, Paige”.
In Ring Segment: Becky Lynch
Lynch doesn’t care who is in charge because the Man is in charge. Lynch says all she wants from the McMahon family is for them to hand her the Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. Lynch says when she went after Rousey she did it the right way. Lynch has worked too hard to let some Roddy Piper cosplayer take it all away from her. Charlotte Flair interrupts. Flair tells Lynch to take a number. Flair says Rousey stole her opportunity at TLC. Flair says Lynch will be stuck looking up at her then, now, and forever. If Rousey didn’t come to the ring Flair would be an eight-time women’s champion. Asuka interrupts. Lynch and Flair are staring daggers at Asuka. Asuka laughs. Asuka tells them to forget Ronda because Asuka is the champion now.
Flair says Asuka never beat her. Lynch calls Asuka a paper champion. Mr. McMahon’s music hits and he power walks down the ramp. Mr. McMahon congratulates Asuka for winning the title. Mr. McMahon asks Lynch and Flair why they are making excuses. The match they were in was a TLC match so anyone could get involved. Mr. McMahon tells them to get over it and if they have a problem take it out on Rousey. Mr. McMahon asks Asuka if she wants to defend her title tonight. Naomi comes out on the stage. Mr. McMahon dances as Naomi’s music plays. Naomi says she wants a shot. Flair and Lynch have already had theirs. Mr. McMahon books the match and it starts right now.
