Welcome to SmackDown Live.
We are in Minneapolis, Minnesota and your announcers are Corey Graves, Tom Phillips, and Byron Saxton.
Paige is in the ring and she introduces the Smackdown Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch.
Becky says when you are the hottest thing in the industry, any time away is a bad thing. She invaded Raw, she fought and she bled. She was on Smackdown and The Survivor Series and tried to fight but she was held back. Becky says she is putting herself back in the ring. Becky says she had to watch someone else fight Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series and she wants to deal with it now.
Becky asks for Charlotte Flair to come to the ring.
Becky says she told Charlotte to give the beating she would have given Ronda, but she almost did it. If she did it, Ronnie wouldn’t be standing. It took you channeling the Man to take it to Ronda.
Charlotte says she wasn’t trying to be Becky, she was being herself, the seven time women’s champion and the only woman on either roster capable of giving Ronda the beating she deserves. Charlotte says she is more capable because she is genetically superior and she has the mindset to do any solitary thing to get the job done.
Becky says Charlotte went from copying her old man to The Man. She is a bootleg Becky and Charlotte is no longer pretending.
Charlotte says Nia must have hit you harder than she thought. You went from quirky to delusional. You are copying her old man and still riding her coattails. Charlotte says the Queen stands out in the crowd and she will be at TLC. She was the one born ready. Charlotte says she did not fight for Becky, she fought for herself. She will fight Becky right now.
Paige tells both of them to shut up and be quiet. Paige says she hasn’t seen this much fire from Charlotte since Becky. She has not seen anyone with that much desire. Charlotte will get her title match against Becky. It will be a TLC match.
Mandy Rose’s music interrupts and she is joned by Sonya Deville, Zelina Vega, Billie Kay, and Peyton Royce.
Mandy says this is a joke. How dare you say that no one has shown the desire that Charlotte has. Everyone is talking about what Charlotte did to Ronda. Any one of them could have done the exact same thing. Any of them deserve a title match. You gave up on Absolution and you are giving opportunities to your old friends.
Naomi’s music interrupts and she is joined by Asuka, Lana, and Carmella.
Naomi heard what Mandy had to say and they agree. You are not questioning her desire. The entire Smackdown roster is packed with talent. Any one of them can be champion.
Becky says she will take on any of them.
Paige says that this is the passion she is talking about. Each woman on the roster will be in a Battle Royal and the winner will be added to the match at TLC.
The Usos are in the back and Jimmy says they held it down for Team Blue. Jey says that there is only one team on Smackdown.
We go to commercial.
