After the match, Nikki helps Alexa put a ladder into the ring.  

Nikki sets up the ladder and she starts to climb it but Alexa decides to climb it instead.  Alexa grabs the briefcase.

Sami Zayn is in the back and he says he is looking at social media and no one says he has a chance against Braun Strowman.  That is just you projecting.  Sami says he stands a great chance of winning.  It is because he fights for a cause while Braun is a manifestation of your toxic beliefs.  That is not how life works.  Wanna know what is better than being big or strong?  It is about being right.  Sami says he will find a way to beat Braun and enter the Money in the Bank ladder match.

We go to comments from Samoa Joe about Rey Mysterio.  Joe says it seems for someone of diminutive size, you talk a big game when you are not around.  Joe says he did not cross the line, you crossed the line when you brought Dominic into the WWE.  Someone needs to teach him to be a man and you are not the one to do it.  Joe says he will see Rey on Sunday and he hopes he sees Dominic there.

We go to Universal Champion Seth Rollins in the back.

Seth is told that the forearm last week was unintentional.  Seth says we are beyond that.  This is not about respect.  It is personal.  This is the first time they meet in a WWE ring.  They met fifteen years ago in a small building and it was the first time that his friends and family believed in him.  It will be a statement match on Sunday.  It is not about proving anything to his friends and family, it will be about proving it to myself and to AJ Styles.  That this is his industry and this is his show.  Fifteen years ago, he looked up to AJ Styles.  When the dust settles on Sunday, AJ will be looking up to him.
