We begin with the WrestleMania Sunday recap video package.
We are live from the Fiserv Forum on Milwaukee, WI, as Kayla Braxton is in the ring to introduce the baddest woman on the planet, Ronda Rousey.
Rousey makes is way to the ring. We see footage of Ronda making Charlotte Flair tap out but without referee.
Kayla says it looked like Charlotte tapped out. Ronda says she lost the match and she is not out here to make excuses. The referee is not always going to count it the first time. She says she beat Charlotte but not when it counted and it is on her. Kayla mentions that Roman Reigns will reveal his next step later tonight. She asks Ronda what is next for her. Ronda says she wants a rematch, but she does not want Charlotte to be able to get disqualified or counted out. She challenges Charlotte to an I Quit Match.
Charlotte appears on the TitanTron and she says that Ronda couldn’t beat her in checkers, let alone an I Quit Match. Quitting is not in her DNA, but winning is. She says she felt the pressure of the arm bar and she didn’t lose. She did not tap out. She walked out as champion. She says that the Baddest Woman on the Planet title is a myth. Charlotte says no to the challenge. Charlotte tells Ronda to get in the back of the line . . . bitch. Charlotte laughs like she is Seth Rollins.
Ronda says that this fight will happen. You will not say I Quit, but you will scream it when I bend back your elbow.

Now, with these low points, that is when you figure out what type of man you are. Corbin says he was doing some self reflecting when he was on his yacht and he had a discussion with himself. He looked at the man and the man he has become. There is only one person to blame for this loss to Drew. Corbin says that man is Madcap Moss.

Corbin says Moss made the weekend all about him for winning the Andre the Giant Battle Royal. You finally won something.

— We are back with a look at Pat McAfee – Vince McMahon – Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania.
— Cole mentions the adversity that a WWE Superstar had to go through and that person is Lacey Evans.
In a video, Lacey says she was born in a small town in Georgia. Her father worked construction. Things were tough because of mental health and addiction issues. Her mom tried to do her best but the abuse got too bad. Lacey says she was taken away from everything she knew. Her mom picked her family up from school and took them away from her dad. She says they lived in shelters and campgrounds. Moving around made her learn that she could adapt and overcome or give up.
Lacey says she was not going to give up. She might not have had the same path as the others, but that is fine with her. It made her a different person today. It has made her a wife, mother, US Marine, and WWE Superstar. That does not make her any better than any of the others, but they aren’t better than her.

When we are talking about the next step, I don’t think I can do much more. I done did it all. There is plenty left for the Bloodline to achieve.
