We are live from the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN, as Bobby Lashley makes his way to the ring. Of course, he’s accompanied by MVP.
Lashley says last week he showed exactly what happens when you disrespect the All Mighty. Porter says Lashley is the single most terrifying man in the entire WWE. I know that because people are terrified to say his name. It is like he is the Candyman. You don’t have to say his name three times to show. Bad things will happen. Porter says there is an issue with respect for this generation fo superstars. You have Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins coming out every week whining and complaining to get into a title match. Do you know who doesn’t complain? Bobby Lashley. Do you know who doesn’t whine? Bobby Lashley. Last week, he sent a message to Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, and Big E, but he also sent a message to Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce. He needs to be added to the WWE Championship match at Day One because there is no better way to start off the year than with Bobby Lashley as your champion.
Kevin Owens comes out to the stage and Kevin says he never said any of your names and I haven’t paid attention to anything you said for two years. How is that disrespectful? Last week, you attacke me when I was down to try to weasel your way into the match. Seth Rollins earned his way into the match at Day One. I earned my way into the title match. You didn’t earn your way. I need to win the title so WWE can have a champion they are proud of. You don’t belong in that match. It is hard enough to win a triple threat match, but if you are in the match, it makes it harder.
Seth Rollins interrupts.and he says we cannot start the show until the star of the show comes out and that is me. Seth says he admires Bobby’s suit. He says while he despises Kevin, he has to take his side on this issue. You don’t deserve to be in his title match at Day One, just like Kevin does not belong in the match.
Porter says they are terrified. Lashley says if they don’t want him in the match, then come to the ring to do something.
Kevin says they need to work together against Bobby Lashley because he cannot take them. Kevin tells Seth to go first and Seth argues with Kevin.
Porter says that when Bobby hits Seth, Kevin will run.
Not to feel left out, the other man who is in a title match at Day One who is not responsible for who is in the match, the WWE Champion Big E comes out.
Big E says he sees his favorite collection of idiots. You might be quaking at being in the ring with Bobby Lashley, but I beat Bobby to become the WWE Champion.
Bobby points out that he was injured and had wrestled a match.
Big E reminds Bobby he beat him in a steel cage and he has no problem doing it one more time.
Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville make their way to the ring and Adam says if anyone lays a finger on anyone, there will be severe consequences. Adam says they have no problem issuing fines or suspensions.
Sonya says that a Fatal Four Way Match sounds good and Bobby Lashley will be added to the championship match. Adam says it will happen IF Bobby can defeat Big E, Kevin Owens, and Seth Rollins. Adam says Lashley has to defeat them all in singles matches tonight.

In the Arena:
Becky Lynch says it is a big night for St. Paul since she is in the building. You thought it would be a big night for Liv Morgan. It was a big match but I am still your champion like I said I would. Some of you are happy that I won, but a lot of you wished that Liv would have won. If Liv had won, you would find every reason to doubt the women who made you believe in her. You don’t know what you want. Remember when you wanted me back. Then I came back and a lot of you have opinions about how I do my job even though you never set foot in this ring. You never changed the game or broke down gender barriers. You never left and came back better than ever. You didn’t evolve. You need to evolve for your fans or you will disappoint your fans.

Becky says she is going to hold on to this title for a long time.
Liv Morgan comes out to the stage.
Liv says she is not getting used to anything. She says that St. Paul is sick and tired of listening to your broken record. You keep saying people would doubt me if I became the Raw Women’s Champion. The only person doubting me is you. You doubting me is the exact reason you almost lost last week and needed to cheat to win. I have a photo to prove my point, and it is Becky holding the rope on the pin. You are the best, but only at cheating to win.
I cried a little last week after our match. It isn’t because I was weak, it was because I am human. I was disappointed but I snapped out of it. I know I can beat you. I believe it. Liv asks if that would embarrass her. You reminded me why our story is not over. I will not give up until I can make that title mean something for that little girl. If you are really Big Time Becks, then you would accept a rematch for the Women’s Championship at Day One.
Becky says she didn’t have to do that because she had to, she did it because it was easy. Don’t blame me for grabbing the ropes but for not doing it first. You have proven you don’t have the killer instinct. You did the same thing you did before, absolutely nothing.
