Kevin Patrick is in the ring and he brings out Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair.
Kevin asks Bianca about Rhea’s vicisous side and how will she prepare for Rhea. Bianca says she is always prepared. She is looking forward to facing Rhea at Money in the Bank. They are at the forefront of the women’s division. They pushed each other and there was mutual respect. Since Rhea joined THE Judgment Day, she does not recognize Rhea. She is soulless. Rhea can intimidate everyone else, but she will not intimidate her.
Rhea appears on the TitanTron.
She says Bianca is all talk. They speak with their actions. Finn says they do what they want when they want. They are tired of playing nice and taking orders. That is why we knocked Edge from his pedestal. Priest says that Edge had the right idea. It was a movment for people tired of living their lives for others. Edge painted himself as their leader but told people to do things they were told. Rhea says you care about what the people think. You should stop caring about the WWE Universe and then you might retain your championship. You are trying to convince yourself that you are the EST. I don’t tell people I am intimidating but I do it. I took what I wanted last week. Now I am in line for the Raw Women’s Championship. At Money in the Bank, you will be your downfall and I will ERADICATE you. I will be a two time women’s champion.

In 20 years, my celebration will make John Cena’s look like nothing.
