The RAW Women’s Champion, Rhea Ripley, comes out and says she’s put up with a lot from Charlotte but this is crap. There’s a reason why Flair wasn’t at WrestleMania, and there’s a reason why she wasn’t in the match to start with, nobody likes her. Charlotte pretends to cry. Rhea says she knows she can beat Asuka again but a Triple Threat is unfair. She should have known this was all part of a bigger plan.

WWE Raw’s own women’s champion Rhea Ripley is here! She’s got the title and she’s got something to say to Raquel González too. At first they stare at each other, then they fist bump with the title belts, and they hug. And if that wasn’t enough SmackDown’s women’s champion Bianca Belair is now here too! All three fist bump their belts and hold them high in the air, smiling and celebrating with their gold as the NeXTRas chant “N-X-T” and then they all have a group hug in the middle of the ring before holding up their title belts again.
