We see comments from The New Day while in India.  Kofi says they are not a Smackdown but they will be at Fastlane.  

We go to commercial.

We are back and Samoa Joe is being interviewed and he talks about people saying he could not win the big one.  Joe says every Smackdown superstar knows the lengths he will go to in order to win.  The champ will not do dance breaks and he will not pander to the unexceptional.  He does not care about John Cena.  Joe will show disrespect to anyone who wishes to challenge the new king.  Joe says that he will make sure anyone who challenges him will go night night.

Sheamus says all they have heard is that Ricochet and Aleister Black are NXT's shining stars.  He wants to wish them luck on Sunday.  Cesaro says just like the Raw Tag Team division, they do not match up with them.

We go to AJ Styles in the back and he is asked about Kevin Owens being added to the match.  AJ says title matches do not grow on trees and you take them when you get them.  Kofi got screwed and he would not want to be in Daniel or Kevin's place.  The McMahons are not listening to the fans.

Randy Orton shows up and he asks if AJ is talking about someone other than him deserves a title match.  No wonder it took you fifteen years to get here.
