– That Bayley clan then enter the ring. Bayley says they appreciate our stupid smiles tonight. They don’t want to be here tonight, but they know we need them. That we all came tonight to see Division saved. Dakota Kai says it was like SummerSlam in that he surprised everyone. Bayley says we can’t see Becky Lynch changing her outfit every week anymore. Either we can’t convince her that we love Bianca Belair, Belair would be nothing without her. And last week they had to win. By taking care of Becky’s shoulder and then taking out Belair’s fighting spirit. Iyo Sky says he lacked the thirst to win. Bayley says the wrestlers were just as lost as we were, we don’t know how to ask for more.
Bayley says she has a question for all of us idiots. Why she’s the only one who realizes what an indispensable weapon Iyo Sky is. Why she’s the only one who realizes that Dakota Kai had to be brought back here. Kai says they will enter the tournament tonight and win it. Alexa Bliss’ music starts and she comes into the ring with Asuka and Bianca Belair. Bliss says that Kai and Sky will not win the tournament because if they win they will have to face Asuka and Bliss. Bliss says they’re even more focused on winning the tournament after last week. Belair says she’s even more thirsty to finish what she started in the ring with Sky. The three now have no problem taking care of the other three! Bayley tells her to calm down a bit. They’ll do a three-on-three where it counts, certainly not here in Cleveland. Why not three against three in Clash at the Castle? Belair says it’s accepted. Belair says she feels like she’s losing control. The six wrestlers begin to fight.
