Becky Lynch & Bianca BelAir Segment 

Becky Lynch: No, that’s not the face of Monday Night Raw, that’s the face of a loser, but you want to talk to me about not facing adversity. You want to talk to me about not facing adversity? I faced it, overcame it, slapped the head off it to become a hero to these people. You on the other hand have had a straight shot to the title. You won the Royal Rumble. You won the main event of WrestleMania. You beat the best women that we have in this company, but that’s only because I wasn’t around to stop you in your tracks. And since then, it’s been nothing but disappointment for you.

Bianca BelAir: You know what? The only thing I’m disappointed about is the fact that I haven’t smacked that little goofy smile off your face to show everyone exactly who you are. Because let’s be real, the only thing that you’ve really done since you came back, is really just try to hide how hurt your little feelings really are. Because you really thought that everyone was just going to be so happy that Big Time Becks came back, that they were just going to forget about little old rookie me, but they’re still rooting for me and that bothers you. Because you might have that title, but you still seek all the validation.

So, behind that little four smile, the catch phrases, the inflated ego, behind that title, you have nothing. Because having a title, that’s a beautiful thing, but if you’re not enough with it, you’ll never be enough without it. And you are nothing without that title, I know it and you know it. You see, I’ve shown everyone who I am without the title. I’m still the EST of the WWE. But, Becky, at the end of the day, you will never be the strongest. You’re not the fastest. And you’re definitely not the smartest on Raw, because that’s me. See, I see right through you. I see you for who you are. So, either shut up or run up, because I want my match for the Raw Women’s Championship, right here, tonight. Let’s go.

Becky Lynch: Oh, you want to act though? You want to act like you’re better than me. You want to go one more time to really see who the best woman is? Well, look at my face, it says get to the back of the line, bitch.
