Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair In-Ring Segment:
This has been an interesting couple days for Becky Lynch. A lot has happened in Phoenix. Last night, she showed up on Raw. She says she couldn’t resist looking at Ronnie in her angry little eyes. It took her two seconds to confirm how different they really are. The beginning of the Royal Rumble didn’t go her way but she didn’t crumble when she lose. She went out and won the Royal Rumble on one good leg.
The arrogant dope, Ronda Rousey wants to talk about Becky working her way up while Ronda was on top. Becky is proud of working her way up and slapping all the heads to get here. She worked from the pre-show of WrestleMania last year to being this year’s main event. Nobody handed her nothing. The main thing she saw when she looked in Ronnie’s eyes was doubt. Becky will break Ronnie’s arm in front of the world. If you don’t believe that, you will be carried out knowing it.
Charlotte comes out to interrupt Becky. Charlotte congratulates Becky. She made it off the kickoff show and Charlotte is so proud. Becky must be ecstatic. It feels good doesn’t it. Becky got into the Rumble match and won. Maybe you learned from me. Becky became the man after learning from The Queen. It was Charlotte who brought Becky to the main event. Charlotte is proud to get this off her chest. Charlotte is so happy that she could do all of this for you. Becky punches Charlotte in the face. Becky and Charlotte starts brawling around the ringside area.

Daniel Bryan, Erick Rowan, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, Mustafa Ali, Samoa Joe and Triple H In-Ring Segment:
Who won this past Sunday at the Royal Rumble? It was each and every one of you. The WWE Universe won. Their children’s children all won because Daniel Bryan won. Because a victory for him is a victory for every sentient being on Earth because he’s the planet’s champion. Bryan doesn’t expect all of you to understand what he’s saying because none of you know what winning feels like. Bryan found someone who understands the truth in everything. He didn’t come out for Bryan, but for the greater good. Bryan brings out Erick Rowan. What do you see when you see Rowan? You see the dirt under his fingernails and think he’S a mindless runt. He spends time at night reading. Rowan is his intellectual peer.
He can see through the facade of AJ Styles. AJ Styles could be right some time. Bryan is a hypocrite. It’s because he carries around this belt. Rowan brings a trash can into the ring. This is a symbol of excellence, but it’s also a symbol of excess. It’s gaudy, made from cheap labor, and bound to the skin of a cow whose life was taken from her. The cow who gave her life was named Daisy. Daisy had the ability to feel immense joy which she did not get to enjoy much of in this life. She had the ability to feel immense pain. She was forced to give her life for this symbol. This symbol is the very thing that he despises. Bryan throws the title in the trash. When The New Daniel Bryan became the WWE Champion, he would change the world. To change the world, we need new symbols. Bryan shows us the brand new symbol of excellence.
The people are ignorant. This belt is made from 100% organic sustainable hemp from a naturally fallen oak. AJ Styles appears on the stage. Did Bryan think that Styles would be sitting in the back while the WWE Championship was being thrown in the trash? Did Bryan intake hemp before the show? For someone who doesn’t like corporations, Bryan found the biggest insurance policy Styles has ever seen. Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, and Mustafa Ali joins the conversation before the commercial break. Everybody basically wants a shot at the WWE Championship. Didn’t Ali get eliminated by a girl?
Samoa Joe is not here to ask for permission. He’s here to make a champion go to sleep. He will take care of the Viper in due time. Joe needs Hardy to act like he’s at an AA meeting. Joe tells Ali that he got lucky on Sunday. Joe is still trying to figure out whether Ali is a boy or a man? How is Wendy doing? Styles punches Joe in the face. All hell starts breaking loose in the ring. Daniel Bryan is running his mouth on the announce table. Bryan says no one will get a shot at The WWE Hemp Championship. Orton drops Joe with an RKO. Hardy responds with The Twist Of Fate. Ali with a Spinning Heel Kick to Hardy. Triple H appears on the TitanTron. Daniel Bryan will be defending the WWE Championship against all of those superstars inside the Elimination Chamber.
