We are back and Sami Zayn is with Tom Phillips.  He is asked about facing Kevin Owens tonight after the end of their feud.

Sami says beating Kevin would end things and allow him to move forward.  He beat him, but Sami says he feels directionless and Kevin is the Universal Champion.  Sami says it stings and there is some jealous.

Kevin stops by and he tells Sami to tell the truth about the jealousy.  Kevin says he was the one chasing Sami.  Getting signed by the WWE first and being drafted before Kevin.  But Kevin has the title and he won the race.  This means that he is better than Sami.  Sami was at his best when Kevin was there to back him up.  Kevin says he is the Universal Champion and Sami is nothing.

Sami says that he was not nothing at Battleground.  They will not be done.  Sami says he will win the WWE Universal Championship and he will do it on his own.  He won't need Triple H to hand it to him on a platter.

We are back and Sasha Banks makes her way to the ring.

Sasha says there is a saying that every journey has an end.  Every story has a final chapter.  For years and years, the WWE Universe was searching for a revolution.  Before there was a Facebook and Twitter, there was a revolution.  There were women, women like Mae Young and Fabulous Moolah.  Women like Alundra Blaze.  Women like Trish and Lita.  They wrote the first chapter. 

On July 15, 2015, Stephanie McMahon introduced the next generation of women in the WWE.  No more Bra and Panties matches.  No more stupid butterfly title.  They did it.  They finally became what they deserved all along, to be called Superstars.  This revolution is more than the WWE.  This revolution is every mother, sister, and daughter.  Her revolution is every time she steps into the ring.

Every time she steps into the ring, she does it for every little girl who has a dream of being better.  She does it for everyone who wants more.  She used to get up at 6:00 AM to pick up soda cans to get money to go to a WWE show.  That is why she fights so hard.  Every time she is in this ring, it means so much to her.  

Sasha says at SummerSlam, she was pushed to her limits, she was pushed beyond her limits.  Charlotte tried to break her back.  She is not out here to make any excuses.  Charlotte beat her.  Sasha says she met with the doctors and she has some bad news.

Dana Brooke's music plays and she says the only champion in the WWE is Charlotte.  She will send a message.  She will finish what Charlotte started at SummerSlam.  Your journey will end on her terms.

Dana throws the mic at Sasha and Sasha with a lungblower into the Banks Statement.  Dana taps for no reason and Sasha releases the hold.

Sasha calls Dana 'Miss Piggy' and then she says that the title is coming back to her at Clash of Champions.
