We are back and tonight, Kevin Owens will face Dean Ambrose tonight as the two champions square off.

Michael Cole is with Roman Reigns.

Michael asks if Roman feels any responsibility or remorse that Wrestlemania might have been Undertaker's last match.  Roman says this was the biggest win of his career.  It was also the most bittersweet.  He says that he respects the Undertaker.  He got a lot of advice from mentors.  How do you prepare to retire a legend.  He says it has been a crazy situation.  He says he did what he said he would do.  Roman says he is the big dog and this is his yard.

Braun Strowman attacks Roman during the interview and Strowman sends Reigns into the wall and over a case onto a table.  They continue to battle and Strowman sends Reigns into the metal door in the back of the arena. Security holds their arms out to tell Strowman to stop and we know how well that works.  Strowman picks up Reigns and htis a running power slam onto a few cases.  Strowman pushes a case against Roman.

They get a stretcher for Roman.

Strowman is not done with Roman and he pushes Roman off the loading dock while Roman is strapped to the stretcher.

We see Roman down on his side while officials check on his condition.

Reigns is put into the ambulance and Strowman says he is not finished with Roman.  Braun shuts the door to the ambulance and then he lifts the ambulance and puts it on its side.

Dana Brooke is in the back and she is reading a book until Emma enters.  

Emma tells Dana 'let's go' and Dana wants to know what Emma means by that.  Emma reminds Dana that she was her protege before Charlotte.  Emma says she is here to pick up the pieces.

Dana tells Emma that was last year.  While you were having your identity crisis, the entire women's division has gotten better, including her.  She might not be the best, but she is making strides and learning to stand on her own two feet.  She is not going with Emma or anyone else any more.

Bayley walks in the back as we go to commercial.

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

Sasha says everyone is asking why is she out here tonight.  Sasha says she has unfinished business, but first, she wants to bring out the WWE Women's Champion Bayley.

Bayley thanks Sasha for the introduction, but she has something to say.  Bayley thanks everyone.  They were with her from her first day in NXT, through her WWE debut.  Bayley says without you guys, the twelve year old in her heart wouldn't have had her Wrestlemania moment.

Sasha says Wrestlemania did not go as she planned.  Sasha says she wants to congratulate Bayley on the biggest moment of her career, but that moment is over.  Sasha demands her title match, but . . . 

Alexa Bliss makes her way to the ring.  Alexa says that was really heartfelt but she says that was really nauseating.  Alexa says the only one who needs recognition is her.  She put an end to this pathetic Sasha/Bayley side show because it is pretty weird.  She will take over the Raw women's division.  Alexa says she is happy to put that Smackdown drama behind her.

Mickie James comes out and she says she is on Raw as well.  Some might say she is the greatest women's champion of all time and the only six time Women's Champion.  Do you think your drama is over?  Your nightmare has just begun.

Nia Jax attacks Mickie James from behind.

Alexa pushes Sasha at Nia and Nia sends Bayley into the turnbuckles and hits a Samoan drop.  NIa picks up the title belt and she says it is hers before dropping it on Bayley.  Nia leaves the ring and she stares down Alexa before heading to the back.
