In the Arena:
Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair makes her way to the ring.
Charlotte woooos for Detroit and she says it is great to be here. She says it seems that Sonya Deville has a problem with her. She doesn’t know why, but maybe it is because she beat her two weeks ago. If you have a problem with her, you don’t have to attack her from behind or go to Adam Pearce, say it to her face.
Sonya does not come out at first but Charlotte nudges her to come out.
Sonya says she does not care what the people of this city want. She only cares about what she wants and what she deserves. That is a title match. You don’t think she is worthy. Sonya tells everyone that she is a star and when she opens her mouth, you shut yours and listen.
Last week, it took six people to rip her off Charlotte. Are you that arrogant that you don’t see it?
Charlotte says Detroit has made their mind up about Sonya. She says she always said Sonya was a star, but what about the other women? What makes you think you are more special than anybody else. You demand title matches not being owed to you. Are you the arrogant one in the ring? You called your shot and lost and you tapped out.
Charlotte tells Sonya to worry about the Royal Rumble. Charlotte says she will fight Sonya tonight.
Sonya wants to make sure she is hearing this right. Sonya says no. Sonya says there is nothing in this for her, unless you are willing to put your title on the line.

Roman Reigns looks troubled and he asks Paul if he can believe this guy.
Heyman tells Roman he has never liked Shmuli since day one, but he appreciates what Roman has said about the Island of Relevancy. Paul asks Roman to take into his ruthless consideration that it is better when signing a contract to face Kevin Owens, that when it comes to Sami Zayn, maybe it is better to have Sami in the castle pissing out than out of the castle pissing in.
We go to commercial.
