Paige & AJ Styles In-Ring Segment:
WWE Management told Paige that this job would be exhilarating, emotional, and exhausting. She never thought she would be in the situation she is in right now. Samoa Joe crossed the line last week and he did the worst thing in WWE history. Joe never entered the house and charges were filed for trespassing. Paige talked to officials and they came to the decision that Samoa Joe should be fired. No man should be in that situation with his family.
Styles wanted the charges to be dropped. Styles wanted to dish out the punishment. The match is still on for Saturday. Paige has a video from AJ Styles. He apologizes for not being at Smackdown. This issue is bigger than WWE. Styles doesn’t want to do something stupid or emotional and regret it. He’s not leaving until he gets confirmation that Joe is on a plane to Australia.
Styles has four amazing kids and they need him right now. He needs to be at home. He needs to be here for his daughter because she has been waking up in the middle of the night looking under the bed or in the closet for Uncle Joe like he is the boogeyman. This will end. This needs to end. You’re not coming back from the Land Down Under. Styles is not going to put Joe’s body in a casket and putting dirt on it. He is going to bury him alive.

Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair In-Ring Segment:
Six weeks ago, Becky finally stopped waiting and started taking. Since that night in Brooklyn, she’s been the best thing about SmackDown Live. She ran through the entire locker room and toppled the Queen, she runs this division. It’s the most relevant thing in WWE. Becky learned that being kind and being patient gets you nothing but stabbed in the back and treated like a fool. Not no more. She is relentless. She strikes first.
Becky can watch her video package all day long. Time and time again, she has proven that she has owned Charlotte Flair. The more they change, the more they stay the same. Where is her magazine cover? Where is the action figure with her holding the title belt? Becky has to see the person she beat doing media events. This face belongs on the magazines and posters. If they won’t do it for her, she will do it herself. Becky made a new poster for Super Show Down, and it’s her standing over Charlotte.
