We see how Rhea Ripley became the new #1 contender to RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair last week. We also see how The Judgment Day stared Belair down after the match.
Kevin Patrick is in the ring now. He gives a grand introduction to RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair and out she comes swinging her hair as fans cheer her on. Back to commercial.
We go back to the ring and Patrick mentions how Rhea Ripley has changed since joining The Judgment Day. He asks Belair how she plans to defend against this version of Ripley at Money In the Bank. Belair says she stays ready so she doesn’t have to get ready. She goes on about how there has been this mutual respect between she and Ripley, which she loved, but now Ripley is soul-less since joining The Judgment Day. Belair says Ripley joining the group is all about intimidating people but she’s not the one to be intimidated. Belair goes on hyping herself up and says she walks the walk, and at Money In the Bank she will… Ripley appears on the big screen with Finn Balor and Damian Priest.
Ripley says Belair is all talk while they speak with their actions. Balor says they do what they want, when they want. They are tired of playing nice and taking orders, which is why they knocked WWE Hall of Famer Edge off his pedestal. Priest says Edge had the right idea – it was a movement for people tired of living their lives for others, and Edge painted himself as their leader but told them to do as they were told, and contradicted his own mission statement. Priest says Edge sealed his own fate, so now they are all equals in The Judgment Day.
Ripley says Belair cares what everyone thinks. She knocks the local crowd and says Belair might stand a chance at retaining her title if she’d stop listening to the fans. Ripley goes on talking trash and says she loved it when she had her teeth knocked loose last week. Ripley says at Money In the Bank, the greatest thing Belair will be is her downfall, when Ripley eradicates her from this business and then walks the walk as a two-time RAW Women’s Champion. The Judgment Day music starts up as a confused Belair clutches the title in the ring.
