Becky Lynch, Bianca BelAir, Zelina Vega, Carmella, and Liv Morgan Segment 

Becky Lynch: The Man has come around to Little Rock. Oh it feels good to be back, but not just back, we’re back on top, baby. I missed you guys. Let me tell you, when I had to give up my Raw Women’s Championship a year and a half ago, that was one of the hardest things I ever had to do. And not just because I was giving up a title, but it felt I was giving up my identity and my life as I knew it. And I promise you, I have been working every day since to get back where I was once. But I do have a new life, and I do have a new set or priorities.

And if you think I was dangerous before, when I was just fighting for myself, you have no idea about how deadly I’m about to be. Which brings me to SummerSlam. I hear you, there’s been a lot of controversy about my return, a lot of people talking about my actions and saying that it was underhanded. And okay, alright, I would like to take this time to say, that I am sorry for absolutely nothing. I have been in WWE for long enough to know that everything is about timing. You can call it a lucky break, but really all it is, is when opportunity meets preparation, and I all needed  was an opportunity, because if you think I wasn’t preparing for this every second of every day then you haven’t been paying attention to my career.

Bianca BelAir: You know, I’m not here to make excuses because that’s not my style. But if you think that I’m okay with what happened at SummerSlam, girl, uh-uh. Because I have been the one that’s been right here, working too hard and too long, just for you to walk in and try to erase all of that in 26 seconds. So you want to talk about timing? Okay, well, I accepted your last minute challenge, so how about The EST and The Man tear it down for The SmackDown Women’s Championship, tonight?

Zelina Vega: Bianca, you know what? Here’s what you should do, Bianca, because you already embarrassed yourself, once before. Pretty sure no one wants to see that again. I think that you should fall back instead of here, you know, begging for a rematch like a little dog. And instead of you searching for competition like a lost dog, maybe you should fall back and let me have that match with you.

Liv Morgan: I don’t understand why these two think they deserve to be in the title picture when they both get beat, week after week, week after week, week after week. But, Becky, if you’re looking for a contender, I’m here.

Bianca BelAir: All three y’all have done lost y’all damn mind. Because this ain’t even got nothing to do with y’all at all. This is between me and The Man, so, Becky, forget them. How about we do this right? Let’s give the people the match they want. The EST vs. The Man, tonight? Let’s do it.
