Becky Lynch & Bianca BelAir Segment 

Becky Lynch: Were you expecting a Becky party tonight? What a party they threw for Bianca. She went back to her hometown and they threw her this tremendous celebration. Tremendous celebration for, well, I’m not actually quite sure, I guess for making it out of there and doing alright for herself, and that’s nice. I too have made something of myself. I came back at SummerSlam, last minute notice, and less than a year after having a child, won the title in record time. No one threw me a party, but that’s okay. I like cake, but that’s okay. As the better man, I went out there to shake her hand and say congratulations.

Now, here’s where it gets interesting because, unprovoked, she had to try and insert her dominance and wouldn’t let go of my hand. She had to show all her little friends how big and strong she is. What choice did I have? Real greatness isn’t made in the body, it is made in the mind. This is the law of the jungle baby, it’s hit or be hit, so what choice did I have? I didn’t want to embarrass her in front of her mom and dad, and all of her friends in her hometown, in front of her high school teacher. I didn’t want to do that, but what choice did I have? I am the better man. And as the better man, I wanted to give her time to recalibrate after her shameful, embarrassing defeat at SummerSlam. But, no, she goaded me into a rematch at Extreme Rules, so what choice will I have?

Bianca BelAir: You know, first of all, keep my momma and daddy’s name out of your mouth, that’s what you’re gonna do. But real talk, Becky, you did beat me at SummerSlam, and you did embarrass me in my hometown. But if you think that’s what’s going to happen on Sunday, girl, uh-uh, it ain’t going to happen. Because at SummerSlam, I didn’t even know that I was facing you.

Becky Lynch: Yeah, yeah, but you knew that you were having a match. You knew you were having a match, you just didn’t know you’re going to be facing the greatest woman to ever hold this title. Don’t you call yourself the EST? Shouldn’t that mean you’re always ready? Shouldn’t that mean that you’re the best, the greatest or is that just a nice little catchphrase you got going on there, Bianca?

Bianca BelAir: You know what? How many different ways do I have to say it? How many different ways do I have to show you that I’m the EST before you finally get it? Because last week I showed you that I was the strongest when you saw how easy it was for me to lift you up over my head, even in heels. And you know that I’m the fastest because while you were away, oh, I know you was watching me, you was watching me match every single one of your accomplishments in your career, like winning the Royal Rumble, main eventing WrestleMania. Only I did it in a quarter of the time. And I won an ESPY, so put some respect on my name.

Becky Lynch: Come on, Esther, you’re only good because I showed the world how to be great.

Bianca BelAir: You know what, you’re really holding on to this glory of beating me at SummerSlam in a match that wasn’t even supposed to happen in 26 seconds. But we all know the match is happening this Sunday, and you best believe it’s not going to end in 26 seconds. It’s going to be the EST vs. what you call the greatest woman to ever hold that title. Well, the winner is going to be the strongest, the fastest, greatest, the roughest, the toughest, the quickest, the greatest and the newest SmackDown Women’s Champion.

Seth Rollins Promo 

I am a patient man, Edge, I really am. But it has been seven days since I laid an ultimatum at your feet, and I have gotten no response. I’ve heard nothing. Not a peep. That’s okay because the sound of your silence is deafening. And it reveals the truth. And the truth is, you’re hurt, you’re hurt bad. You’re afraid and you’re ashamed to admit that. I may be the reason that you will never compete in a WWE ring ever again. And while that’s mildly amusing to me, it’s not good enough. You see, I want an answer, and I don’t want to wait anymore.

So, this is how it’s going to be, you’re going to show up to SmackDown next week, you’re going to crawl yourself to the ring, you’re going to look me in my eye, and you’re going to tell the entire world the truth. And I am not Edge lite, that I am superior to you in every single way, and that I am the man responsible for ending your career. Now, you can choose not to do that if you like, but I will not be made a liar of. I will find you, where you sleep, and I will beat those words out of you, in front of your wife, and in front of your children. The choice is yours. I know you’ll make the right one.
