In-Ring: Seth Rollins, Becky Lynch, Baron Corbin, Lacey Evans
WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring to start the night. The crowd gives him a nice hand. Pictures are shown of Rollins having to contend with Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans conspiring against him at WWE Stomping Grounds last night before his girlfriend Becky Lynch made the save. Rollins says last night at WWE Stomping Grounds in Tacoma, Baron Corbin thought he’d take the title from him.
RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch’s music hits, and she makes her way to the ring to a nice reception. A LOUD “Becky” chant picks up. Rollins pretends to be upset that she interrupted him. Rollins says before they get into all of this, he has to give Corbin some credit. Last night he was smart enough to know he couldn’t wrestle or fight Rollins, and he was also smart enough to get a referee he wouldn’t bash with a chair. Corbin wasn’t smart enough to realize he has the best backup on the planet. The crowd chants for Becky Lynch. Lynch says it pays to the “The Man’s Man.” Last night, they proved individually why they are the champions of their divisions. Lacey Evans, that plank, had nothing when it came time to fight, so tap out she did. Then she tried to steal a title from someone else. Not on her watch. That’s when The Man comes around to slap her empty head off her shoulders once again.
Baron Corbin’s music hits, and Lacey Evans attacks Becky Lynch from behind. Rollins goes to help, but Lynch already took Evans out. Baron Corbin runs down, but Rollins fights him off. Corbin and Evans leave the ring. Corbin says Lynch saved Rollins again. Rollins should put his title on Lynch’s shoulder, go home, and put on an apron before making a sandwich for The Man because she’s handling all of Rollins’ business. Corbin says if it wasn’t for Lynch last night, he’d be Universal Champion. Corbin picked Evans for a reason because she’s the only real woman they have around here. Corbin says he’d take Evans as his mixed tag partner against Rollins and Lynch anytime, anywhere. Evans accepts the invitation. Evans says that match should happen at Extreme Rules.
Lynch says if they’re so excited to get their head stomped in and arm ripped off, that’s fine. There’s one caveat though: if Corbin and Evans are defeated, they are done with them. No more title opportunities. Corbin says they accept. Evans says they’ll raise the stipulations. Rollins says it doesn’t matter what it is because the challenge is accepted. Corbin says they should worry since they’re both champions. At Extreme Rules, it will be Winners Take All!
