Is This Really Happening?
Vince McMahon comes out and tells Becky and Ronda they have bad attitudes. He immediately suspends Becky for 60 days, which puts her out of WrestleMania. He says they need a replacement and names Charlotte Flair as Ronda's new challenger. The Queen comes out on the stage and poses as Becky throws her mic to the ground. The show ends with Vince and Charlotte standing next to each other smiling.
Two Words Is All It Took
Becky says she has received advice from everyone backstage about what to do. She relents and says she is sorry after a long pause. She immediately says if anyone gets in her way on the road to WrestleMania, she will take them out. Triple H shakes her hand and she asks if that's it. He says it is and Becky addresses Rousey, who makes her way to the ring.
Will She or Won't She?
Becky Lynch, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are in the ring after the break. Steph and Trips plead with her to think about what her match at WrestleMania means and apologize to them.
