Monday Night Raw: 8 pm EST

Stephanie McMahon is in the ring and she starts introducing the evening, but Becky Lynch’s music interrupts and The Man limps her way down to the ring. Stephanie notes how Becky has been limping and says she will need to be cleared by medical staff. Becky refuses and accuses Stephanie of trying to sabotage the match but Stephanie assures her that she wants to see Becky beat Ronda Rousey, especially considering Stephanie’s own history with the champion.

Becky still refuses and Stephanie says then she will have to suspend her and not let her compete at WrestleMania. So Becky ends up attacking Steph and puts a little beating on her, sending Steph into retreat up the aisle as the crowd chants Becky’s name.

Backstage, Raw Women’s Champion Rousey confronts Becky, who has been suspended indefinitely about her actions against Steph and says they were unprofessional and has jeopardized their WrestleMania match.
