We go to the ring and out comes SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair.
Flair takes the mic and says she had the toughest challenge of her career at WrestleMania 34 on Sunday. She says Asuka made her dig deeper than ever before and for that, she thanks her. Flair says The Queen left WrestleMania still the champion. She says they left every ounce of energy and emotion in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome that night. She knows it was WrestleMania but something about it was special and magical. Flair says the question now is, who will she make magic with next? She goes on but she’s interrupted by The Iconic Duo, Peyton Royce and Billie Kay from WWE NXT.
Peyton speaks from the ramp and says she just happens to know a few wizards if Flair is looking to make magic as they can make that title disappear from her waist. Billie introduces Peyton and herself. Billie says Flair’s match at WrestleMania was good but it just wasn’t… iconic. Fans cheer as they head into the ring. Billie says no one wants to hear Flair out here running her mouth. Peyton and Billie mock Flair in the middle of the ring now. Fans chant for The Iconic Duo again. They tell Flair to stop talking about a match that was in the past, especially because she’s looking at the future. Peyton says it’s now out with the old and in with the iconics. Flair attacks Peyton first but Billie comes from behind and the numbers game catches up.
Peyton and Billie unload on Flair and beat her down but she’s trying to fight back. Billie hits Shades of Kay and sends Flair out to the floor where Peyton is. They toss Flair over the announce table and into the barrier. They ragdoll Flair back over the announce table and continue the double team at ringside. They send Flair face-first into the steel ring steps and she goes down. Fans chant for Carmella to come cash in. Flair slowly gets to her feet but they grab her and send her shoulder-first into the steel ring steps. Flair rolls around and yells out in pain. They scoop Flair for a big double powerbomb on the floor now. They bring Flair back into the ring but she’s knocked out.
The Iconic Duo stands tall over Flair’s body to a mixed reaction. Referees are out to send them to the back and to check on Flair as their music hits. They back up the ramp and continue the trash talking. The music hits and out comes Carmella with her Money In the Bank briefcase. Carmella runs to the ring and hands her title shot to the referee. The referee asks if she’s sure she wants to do this. She screams at him but he’s acting like he doesn’t understand. The referee talks to Hamilton but takes his time as Flair slowly recovers. Hamilton makes the announcement.
