By Richard Trionfo on 2016-05-23 23:02:00

We are back and the WWE Women's Champion Charlotte makes her way to the ring with Ric Flair and Dana Brooke.

Charlotte wooos and she hands the mic to her father. 

Ric says before you start, tonight, on this phenomenal interview you are going to have, as a father, he wants to convey how proud he is since she won the WWE Women's Championship at Wrestlemania.  As a child, every time you turned around, you had your hand in the candy jar.  Everything she touched, she made it happen.  When you had your back against the wall, you prevailed last night.  You went to get someone like your uncle Arn, Dana Brooke.  You are that damn good.  Without Charlotte Flair there is no Dana Brooke.

Charlotte says she wants to thank one person . . . herself.   She says she could not be more proud of Dana since she chose to be with the best.

Dana thanks Charlotte for letting her stand in the ring with  the dirtiest player in the game.

Charlotte says speaking of him, she says he remembers Thanksgivings, Christmases, and birthdays she remembers Mom saying that Daddy's always with you.  You weren't there because she had to watch him on television.  She says she could not understand why you weren't there but now she gets it because she is the WWE Women's Champion.  She has never been more powerful or more confident.  You knew what it felt like to be the man because she is the woman.  That is why she finally has the courage to say 'Get out of my ring'

Charlotte says that she expected him to stare at her dumbfounded.  The people of your generation are all the same, they don't want to leave the spotlilght.  She says she let Ric bask in her spotlight.  She is not Ric Flair's daughter, he is Charlotte's dad.  Charlotte says her spotlight is bigger than her father's..  She says that Ric is the second dirtiest player in the game and she does not have time for those who finish in second place.

Charlotte says she does not need him any more.  Charlotte says Ric abandoned her.  How do you think she has felt the last thirty years of her life?    She tells Ric that to all of these people, you are immortal to them but dead to her.

Charlotte tells Ric that he can watch her on television like she did for him.

We go to commercial.

We are back and it is time for the post mortem of what we just saw when Ric Flair was disowned by his daughter.

AJ Styles is in the ring and he has something to say before his match.  He says in our business, you never know how good someone is until you get in the ring with him.  In the last six weeks, Roman Reigns is every bit the man he says he is.  AJ says that Roman is one of the better men he has been in the ring with.  He says Roman is not phenomenal.  If it wasn't for the Usos, Gallows, and Anderson, he had Roman beat last night.  If it wasn't for those guys, you would be looking at the new WWE World Champion.  That did not happen.  AJ says he does not live in the past.  He has a chance tonight to face Kevin Owens and beat him on his own and move on to Money in the Bank.

AJ says he did not bring them to WWE to watch their back and take care of his problems.

Luke says if they didn't drop everyone who had a problem with there would have been a lot of bar fights he would have been in.  If they didn't save AJ in WWE, he would not have made it to Extreme Rules.

AJ says they need to separate.  You do your stuff alone and he does his stuff alone.  Right now, they are done.  No one can separate them from being brothers.

Luke tells AJ how dare you talk to them like that and then call them brothers.

Karl says they are not brothers any more.  They are not friends any more.

AJ says if that is the way it is, they don't need to be in the ring together.  As of right now, this is his ring.
