Alexa Bliss welcomes us to the Blissertation, along with Mickie James. She calls herself the best women in the division and says she’s here to announce her opponent for WrestleMania. She says it won’t be Naomi, and Mickie mocks her sore leg. She says it won’t be Nikki Bella because she’s off nursing her wounds with her square-chinned Superman. It won’t be Carmella because she’s off taking care of her chinless troll. And it definitely won’t be Becky Lynch, who she likens to Chucky.
Becky Lynch comes out and tells Becky to shut up. She says she’s here for a Beclaration, then says the joke sucked. She says she is here to announce herself as the opponent for Bliss, and she will take her title back at WrestleMania. Out comes Natalya.

Nattie says Alexa and her came to an understanding last week. She says the two of them are Championship material and Becky is not in their league. Alexa stops her and asks if she got into the catnip again. She says they didn’t come to an understanding whatsoever. Alexa calls Nattie the worst there is, the worst there was, and the worst there ever will be. The four of them start to argue until Mickie grabs the mic and says Alexa was just about to announce her as the challenger.
Alexa says that wasn’t what she was here to do and Becky gets angry, she can’t believe Mickie would get a title shot when she beat her twice. Alexa starts to explain the situation when Natalya calls Mickie ugly for some reason. The four bicker again and out comes Daniel Bryan to rescue this segment.
Bryan says he and Shane have been tuning in and this Blissertation would be an F, if they were grading it. He says Alexa claimed to be the greatest competitor on the entire SmackDown women’s wrestler. Bryan says there’s only one way to figure that out, and that’s if she defends her title against every woman on the roster. Alexa protests but the fans love it.
Alexa says Bryan can’t do that and he says yes he can, it’s literally his job. Bryan then says he’s taken tips from Hall of Famer Teddy Long, and he’s making this a tag team match, which starts right now!
