Get a good look at that, Roman. You done changed the rules, Roman. You don’t draw first blood on Brock Lesnar and live to tell about it. You see, Roman, I’m here for blood tonight.

Ronda Rousey & Charlotte Flair Segment 

Ronda Rousey: We are less than one month away from one of the biggest matches of my career. But just last week, Charlotte revealed her grappling ignorance when she called me a one trick pony that can only win with an arm-bar, which is like calling Mike Tyson a one trick pony because he only wins by punching people. You see, where Charlotte sees just one arm-bar, I see thousands of ways to get to the arm-bar. Even so, I’m looking for ways to improve. The last few years I’ve been doing more than making babies and raising cows. I have also been refining the Ankle Lock I learned from my first mentor in this ring, Kurt Angle. I can’t think of a better way to thank Kurt than to tap Charlotte out with it again at WrestleMania.

Charlotte Flair: Ronda, correction. Our match at WrestleMania will be the biggest fight of your life. Let’s set the record straight. You didn’t tap me out last week. I had five-inch heels on and a $2,000 suit. We weren’t competing. You took advantage of me. If I was you, I would be less worried about honoring my mentor and more concerned about winning where it matters, like WrestleMania, the grandest stage. I guarantee you won’t be tapping me out.

Ronda Rousey: I already did. And I know I will again.

Charlotte Flair: I can’t hear you. Oh, you think this is funny. You think this is funny? Wipe that stupid smile off of your face, because there’s nothing funny about having the opportunity to face Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania. I get it, I get it, you’re a fighter. And I get it, you’re an impressive one at that. But there is a reason I am the most decorated woman in sports entertainment history. And when I stand here, I still only see a one trick pony. And you think I care that you have some new fancy ankle lock? I can promise you this. When I’m done with you, I’m going to embarrass you. I’m going to humiliate you. By the end of the night, I’m going to make you tap out.

Ronda Rousey: Oh, really? I’d love to see that. Birmingham, wouldn’t you love to see that? Come on, I will give you the time to take off your heels this time, okay? Take your time

Charlotte Flair: Oh-Oh. And I am still the SmackDown Women’s Champion.

Ronda Rousey: Fine, walk away Charlotte. Go ahead and walk away. But at WrestleMania, you can’t walk away. On the grandest stage of them all, I’m either going home with your arm or you are going to tap out.
