Then Stephanie brings out Becky Lynch.

Stephanie says we certainly need a champion.  At Fastlane it will be Charlotte Flair going one on one against Becky Lynch for the Raw Women's Championship.  Stephanie explains to Becky the hold harmless agreement that she needs to sign before getting the match.  Becky takes the agreement and signs it.

Charlotte says for Becky to sign it unless Stephanie wants to hand her title to the Queen. 

Becky says she beat Charlotte on one leg in the Royal Rumble and she does not have to wait now.

Stephanie tells Becky that they have to go through the legal hoops to make it official.  Then they can have their match at Fastlane.

We are back and just in time for Ronda to make her way to the ring.

Ronda wants to know what is going on.  Stephanie says she had no choice and she vacated the title.

Ronda says she gave Stephanie a week and she wanted Becky included in the match, not have her excluded from the match.  Ronda says she wants her title back.

Stephanie gives Ronda her belt back but Stephanie says she has to do business here.   Becky will still face Charlotte Flair.  If Becky loses, she is done.  If Becky wins, she will be added to the match at Wrestlemania.

Ronda says Stephanie values her wallet over pride.  Is she going to admit that she lost control?  Ronda says she can go rogue at any time because you value your bank account over Charlotte or Becky's bodies.  Ronda says she did everything to work her ass off for your entertainment and you booed her out of the building in Los Angeles.  Ronda says she is not pretending any more.  She can break their noses if she wants.  Ronda is not going to be your dancing monkey any more.  Ronda hits Charlotte and then she goes after Becky.  Ronda punches Becky.

Stephanie is asked if she did a favor for Ronda.  Stephanie says that Ronda showed her true colors.  She has no regard for anyone.  She says she has no love for Becky Lynch but she feels sorry for Becky.  Becky signs the agreement and then Ronda beats her up.  Who does Ronda Rousey think she is.  Stephanie says she cannot wait to see what happens to Ronda at Wrestlemania. Stephanie says we are going to get one hell of a match at Wrestlemania.  Stephanie says there are a lot of decisions to be made for next week's Raw.

We go to credits.
