Natalya is in the back with Epico, Primo, and Rosa Mendes. Natalya asks them what they want to get off their chest. Primo says that they have been disrespected by Mick Foley. Epico says that they are either completely ignored or put in matches with clumsy giants like the Great Khali. Primo says that they expect better. Rosa says that they demand better.

Rosa asks Natalya why she has that look on her face and wonders if it is because she is holding a microphone or because she is the cousin of Bret Hart. She is not special and Rosa says that she is the true diva of Saturday Morning Slam.

Natalya suggests that they face her and her two boys in a six person tag match next week.
