Show opens up and Charlotte Flair comes out to the ring. She says that Vince McMahon made a smart business decision by replacing Becky Lynch with her in the WWE Title match at WrestleMania. The crowd boos and chants Becky’s name. Charlotte mocks the crowd for hoping that the suspended Becky will show up in answer to their chants. Charlotte tells the crowd they can boo her all they want but at WrestleMania they’ll be chanting “This is awesome” like they do at every pay-per-view she performs at. The crowd then starts a “You suck” chant.

Charlotte also reminds everyone that Ronda Rousey still has to defend her title against Ruby Riott at Elimination Chamber. So Charlotte may even have a different opponent come WrestleMania time. The crowd continues expressing their displeasure and Charlotte tells them to shut their mouths. Then she leaves.
