R-Truth and Carmella come out to the ring for a promo segment. United States Champion Samoa Joe comes out to interrupt and the two men start battling it out. Joe gets Truth in the Coquina Clutch and chokes him out before tossing him out of the ring. Joe calls for a microphone. He tells everyone that before them stands a man who defeated Rey Mysterio in under 60 seconds at WrestleMania. Now he’s coming for the rest of the roster in the back.

Suddenly Braun Strowman’s music hits and he comes tearing down the aisle toward Joe. They meet in the ring and start to brawl. Strowman batters Joe and Joe fires back, locking on the Coquina Clutch. Strowman breaks free and ends up going for a Running Powerslam but can’t get Joe up, and Joe scampers away and ultimately escapes.

A battle-weary Shane McMahon makes his way to the ring. Shane talks about WrestleMania, and says everyone wanted to see him defeat The Miz. The crowd boos. He goes on to describe his match and shows the black shiner where Miz punched him in the eye. The crowd chants “You deserve it!” Shane says Miz and his dad learned something at WrestleMania. That Shane is the best in the world, he says. Then Shane brings the ring announcer into the ring and asks why his introduction seemed lackluster today.

The ring announcer says he was threatened by fans not to call Shane “the best in the world” anymore. Shane tells him he doesn’t need to worry about those people, as he grabs him by the scruff. Shane orders him to introduce him again, and he makes him do it over and over as they walk up the aisle to the back. Shane continues to tell him that he’s not getting it right, until finally as they stand on the main stage, and with a little extra motivation from Shane, he gets it.

Double Women’s Champion Becky Lynch comes out to the ring. She says that Lacey Evans’ attack on her last night reminds her that she’s pulling double-duty with two belts on her shoulder. She knows there’s a tsunami of contenders coming her way from both brands. So she’s stepping up her game to be ready for all comers, morning, noon, and night. Becky says no one is going to take those titles from her. Becky starts to leave but Evans shows up again and attacks her, leaving Becky rocked in the aisle.
