Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch makes her way to the ring.
Becky says the Man has come around and the time for joking around is over. No more treading water, she knows who her Wrestlemania opponent is. The cage fighter Shayna Baszler. Becky shows us footage from the Elimination Chamber.
Shayna says she has sent a direct message to Becky Lynch. She tells Becky to look at her and she says she will take the Raw Women’s Championship at Wrestlemania and there is nothing you can do about it . . . bitch.
Becky says here is the thing about Shayna. She cut through the entire field in a matter of minutes. She chopped through the person it took her a career to beat. Shayna is a cage fighting legend and she is a world class scumbag. Becky calls Shayna a black hole of charisma and says that she might be a bitch, but she is the bitch that runs this division. I used to only recognize you as the constipated robot from NXT who refused to shake her hand after Wrestlemania. Now she sees clearly that you are the biggest threat in the way since she took this title from your friend Ronda Rousey’s broken hand. You are not looking to take a title, you have been hiding in the shadows to try to rewrite history. Normal people like me don’t beat trained killers you like, but I did and I will again. It will be heart versus skill. The Man versus the Queen of Spades.
Becky says Shayna is underestimating her and she will smash in Shayna’s face.

We are back and AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson make their way to the ring.
AJ says not once, but twice, the Undertaker has stuck his nose where it does not belong. Not once but twice, the Undertaker has taken moments from him. He stole a beautiful trophy from him at Super Showdown. Last night, he cost AJ a match. We look at what happened last night.
AJ says he saw the Undertaker lose to Roman Reigns three years ago. He saw the Undertaker put his glove and hat in the ring. Undertaker threw his fist up like he was riding into the sunset. Maybe Taker should have done that when Brock ended the streak. That was a beautiful and powerful moment but the Undertaker ruined it when he came back to the WWE. Was it your ego or the spotlight. AJ says he wants the Undertaker at Wrestlemania.
Ten or fifteen years ago, I would have been hesitant to call him out, but he does not see this mythical creature or a phenom anymore. He sees a broken down man named Mark Calloway. Taker should have retired ten years ago when he was in his prime. AJ says he doesn’t know what keeps him coming back . . . it’s his wife. It’s Michelle McCool. AJ says he hopes she doesn’t mind him letting the cat out of the bag. She plays Taker like a fiddle. They have a beautiful family but Michelle is the most conniving person he has met in his life. The truth is the truth. AJ gives Undertaker a little advice. Your wife is going to run you into the ground . . . and I am going to help her. I will make sure you die in that ring at Wrestlemania.
AJ says he is going to take the Undertaker’s soul at Wrestlemania. I will do what his wife wants him to do. It’s pretty simple. I am challenging the Undertaker to a one-on-one match at Wrestlemania. What do you have to lose? You already lost your dignity, pride, and mystique. You are just a broken down, old man. Here is the truth, these people don’t give a damn about you. Accept my challenge and fight me at Wrestlemania. I will literally put the nail in your coffin.
