WWE SmackDown kicks off with highlights of SummerSlam. We see Becky Lynch coming back and winning the SmackDown Women’s Championship from Bianca Belair.

We cut to the arena and out comes the new champion Becky Lynch. Becky says the Man is back in Little Rock. She says she is back and back on top. Becky says she misses them and when she had to give up her Raw Championship, it was one of the hardest things she ever had to do. She said it felt as if she was giving up her identity and her life as she knew it. But she is working hard to go back to where she was.

She says she does have a new life, new priorities. But she’s more dangerous now. She says she would like to say she is sorry for absolutely nothing. She has been in the WWE for long enough to know that it’s all about timing. It’s all when opportunity meets preparation and all she needed was an opportunity. She says she has been working hard every day.

Out comes Bianca Belair.

She gets in the ring and grabs a microphone. The fans chant “EST”. Bianca says she is not out here to make excuses because that’s not her style. But if Becky thinks she is ok with what happened at SummerSlam, she isn’t. Bianca says she is the one that has been here working too hard for too long and she won’t allow Becky to erase all of that in 26 seconds.

Belair says she accepted Becky’s last minute challenge and she challenges Becky to a match tonight. Out comes Zelina Vega. Zelina says is this what the “EST” of WWE has been reduced to which is crying for a rematch. The fans chant “You suck” and Vega tells Bianca no one wants to see her get embarrassed again. But Zelina thinks Bianca thinks should back off and instead of Becky looking for competition, maybe she should have the match against Becky.

Out comes Carmella. She tells Bianca and Zelina to move out of the way because Becky should be facing the most beautiful woman in all of WWE. Carmella says that they told her one hour before her match that she was Sasha’s replacement. She barely had time to do her hair and make-up. Out comes Liv Morgan to the ring.

Liv says she doesn’t understand why they think they deserve to be in the title picture when they both get beat every week. She tells Becky if she is looking for a contender, she is right there. Carmella tells Liv it must be nice to be in the spotlight after spending two months in catering.

Bianca tells them they lost their mind because this has nothing to do with them. This is about her and Becky. She tells Becky to give the people the match that they want. Becky says meh and not tonight as she walks away.

Carmella attacks Bianca as Liv attacks Carmella and throws her to the outside.
