Sami Zayn was not happy backstage. He said it’s a crisis of injustice. Elias was suddenly in the ring playing his guitar. That upset Zayn. Elias wanted to move Sami along because it’s hit time to perform.

Zayn told Elias to shut his mouth because what he had to say is more important. Elias interrupted him with a riff again and Zayn was pissed. It was quite entertaining, to be honest. They were working well through the screen at each other.

Then Sami asked Cesaro to take care of the situation and he left. Elias then started his little routine where he hyped all things going on in WWE.

Cesaro came out before Elias could start singing and Elias floored Cesaro with a clothesline and a back bodydrop. He sent Cesaro flying with a running knee and then he posed on the top of the turnbuckle.

Nice win for Sheamus after Royal Rumble where he beat Shorty G too. Bullies don’t pay. Be A Star.


Bayley came out and said, “Damn I’m good.” She said there’s something about her that can’t be touched. She showed us how to defeat an opponent at the Royal Rumble. She beat Evans at the Rumble and crushed her dream. She got even with Evans for injurying Sasha which caused her to miss the Rumble. Bayley said she did it all with Lacey Evans’ daughter watching from the front row.

She name dropped Summer several times. Then she said he she wants to she can watch among “these annoying sheep and watch me because a true champion surpasses them all.” She said she’s beat everyone.

Bayley then said to get it over with because Charlotte is gonna face her at Mania.

Then Naomi came out. The Glow is back. She had a full LED helmet that was a total fishbowl on her head. That was a nice touch. Her entrance is still one of the best in WWE.

Naomi got a medium reaction. She said that she couldn’t help but hear all the trash talking. Bayley’s been lying that she’s beat her. She’s never beat Naomi.

Then as a former champion, Naomi said that title could use some Glow. Then Bayley jumped her and mounted The Glow. She hammered fists down and picked up her title. Naomi ducked a title shot — literally. Then she nailed Bayley and sent her to the outside. They played Naomi’s music as she celebrated.

Roman Reigns & Usos vs King Corbin, Ziggler, & Roode

They got started and then Jimmy took a spinebuster on the outside from Roode. This was followed by Uce getting thrown over to the time keeper’s area.

The Usos shackled Corbin and led him over to the dog food. Roman nailed a spear and hugged a kid at ringside. They hung Corbin up and then Usos got the dog food.

Then they poured dog food all over Baron Corbin. He didn’t really eat any of it. It was still gross. Poor ring crew that has to clean all that up.
