Seth Rollins, Becky Lynch, Baron Corbin, and Lacey Evans In-Ring Segment: 

About last night. At Stomping Grounds, Baron Corbin thought he was going to take the Universal Title away from Seth Rollins.  Becky Lynch walks down to the ring. Why is The Man interrupting her boo? Rollins has to give Corbin some credit. Last night, Corbin was smart enough to know he couldn’t outwrestle him. Corbin got a referee who would do anything in their power to get the title off Rollins. He wasn’t smart enough to know that he has the best backup on the planet. It pays to be The Man’s Man. They proved individually why they are the champions of their division. Lacey Evans had nothing when it came time to fight and tap out she did. Then Evans tried to steal a title for someone else and it wasn’t going to happen on her watch.

That’s when The Man slapped her head off her empty shoulders. The power couple gets distracted by Baron Corbin’s music. Lacey Evans attacks Becky Lynch from behind.

Evans tells Becky to get her man out of here or she will get her hands on Rollins again.

If it wasn’t for Becky, Corbin would be the WWE Universal Champion. Evans is the only real woman around here. Corbin would choose Evans as his partner in a mixed tag match any time. Evans accepts the offer and suggests the match takes place at Extreme Rules. Becky says that’s fine, but under one condition. When they lose, no more chances. Let’s raise things with a stipulation of their own. Becky and Rollins championships will be on the line in a Winner Take All Match.
