Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Bianca BelAir Segment 

Becky Lynch: The Man has come around to Monday Night Raw. Wow, it’s been about a year and a half since I stood on this stage. And I got to tell you it feels pretty good to be back. But now I’m about to make a lot of executives back there very unhappy by jumping but I don’t care, I do what I want. So the first draft pick for Monday Night Raw is, yeah that’s right, it’s Big Time Becks. This is my show now. And look, I know I’m still holding this. But let’s not forget I was the longest reigning Raw Women’s Champion and technically I never lost that title. And the person that’s holding it now, well we’ve gone back and forth a lot. But Charlotte Flair since the last time I beat her, she’s never been the same. But since the last time she beat me, I’ve been better than ever and she can’t stand it. So I think it might be time to become Becky two belts once again.

Charlotte Flair: Wait, wait, wait, guys. Let me say hello to my old friend, Becks. Hey Becks, like they’re chanting Becky two belts. Let me remind you before you were Becky two belts, before you beat me, you were just Becky pre-show. I made you famous. And you really need to get over your inferiority complex, because it doesn’t matter what brand you’re on, you’re always gonna be looking up to me, the most decorated woman in the history of sports entertainment. But no, it’s a good thing that you left SmackDown because clearly we have some unfinished business.

Becky Lynch: I mean, if it was me, I’d fight Charlotte right now, but I’ve beaten her so many times, I’ve got nothing left to prove, just like I’m gonna beat you and Sasha Banks when I defend my title at Crown Jewel. But you two have never fought before. I wonder what would happen.

Charlotte Flair: Wait, wait, wait, Bianca. I only give out opportunities, not charities.

Bianca BelAir: Oh, so that’s how it’s gonna be? You know what? Well, I’ve got something that I can give to you.

And you must be out of your mind to think that I’m gonna come down to this ring, right now and risk ruining this custom made suit to whoop your ass, again. You see, Bill, because some of us aren’t still dressing like it’s 1998. Look, I know you’re angry, but you need to look at it from my point of view. You’ve been perpetrating this myth that I somehow hurt your son on purpose. And at this point, that’s a bit of character assassination. And, Bill, I think you owe me an apology.

I’ll give you an apology, I apologize to your kids after I leave your lifeless body in the ring, gasping for air. Because there’s one thing for sure, Bobby Lashley. You’re next and you’re dead.

Bobby Lashley: No, no, hold on. Bill, you know of all people that you can’t kill The Almighty. And I can see that the fruit doesn’t fall too far from the tree, so you can let Gage know, if he decides and he has the balls enough to do what he did last time, this time, it won’t be a misunderstanding.
