Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch opened the show, carrying the MITB briefcase in her hand. She addressed the WWE Universe, telling them they supported her when no one else would and for that, they deserved to know that she had to go away for a while.
She was interrupted by Asuka, who claimed her MITB contract. The Man then revealed that the match The Empress won was for more than a title shot; it was for the championship itself. She then announced she is going to be a mother. Asuka celebrated around the arena.
In the back, Mysterio, Natalya, Angelo Dawkins, Montez Ford, Bianca Belair, Ricochet, Cedric Alexander, Liv Morgan, Kairi Sane and R-Truth congratulated Lynch.
Charly Caruso interviewed Asuka about becoming the new Raw Women’s Champion. Kairi Sane joined her and was surprised to see it. They walked out of the scene happy.
Angel Garza defeated Akira Tozawa quickly. After the match, Zelina Vega and her entourage were arguing. Drew McIntyre came out and laid out a challenge to Andrade, whom he defeated again.
MVP was talking to Bobby Lashley about his career and told him he deserves better. MVP started making his way through the back when he bumped into Lana. He told her that if Lashley wanted a way out to come find him. Lana became irrationally upset and screamed at him as he walked away.
Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross came out for an episode of A Moment of Bliss. They talked about Becky Lynch’s announcement, but were interrupted by the returning IIconics. The IIconics told them not to worry about the babies, but defending those Tag Team titles, and challenged them to a title match. Bliss and Cross refused to put the titles on the line, but agreed to do a regular match.
The IIconics vs. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross

Winners: The IIconics
Baszler was interviewed by Caruso backstage. She commented on Becky’s pregnancy, saying she is stupid to throw her career away for a kid, just after becoming the longest-reigning Raw Women’s Champion. She said Lynch will get fat and considering who the father is, the kid will suck.
Natalya confronted Shayna Baszler backstage, scolding her for disrespecting motherhood with her earlier comments toward Becky Lynch. Baszler then asked Natalya what she knew about being a mom, saying Natalya would never have a kid and the Hart Dynasty would die with her.
Natalya vs. Shayna Baszler
Baszler and Natalya engaged in a bit of mat wrestling before Baszler finally began to let loose with combinations of strikes in the corner. Baszler tried to hit the stomp on Natalya’s arm but Natalya countered. That only resulted in Baszler hitting a knee to the face for the pin.
Winner: Shayna Baszler
