into their living rooms. McIntyre thanks everyone for the outpouring
of support for his title win. The internet can be pretty negative,
but he’s received all positive feedback. It’s been his dream to be
champion. It’s surreal that he beat Brock Lesnar for the title. It’s
also surreal that 20 minutes, this happened.

Championship 20 minutes after the conclusion of WrestleMania 36
McIntyre says he beat Brock Lesnar and Big Show back-to-back. He
hopes that sets the tone for his title reign going forward. He’s a
champion that will show up and defend. If a WWE Superstar deserves
an opportunity at the title, they’ll get an opportunity at the
title. McIntyre can’t articulate just how much the title means to
United States Champion Andrade makes his way to the stage with
Zelina Vega. Vega says she wants to introduce McIntyre to the real
champion of Raw, the United States Champion Andrade. McIntyre says,
“…and the crowd goes mild.” McIntyre knows who Andrade is. Vega
sarcastically apologizes for interrupting his speech and mocks his
accent. They just want to congratulate McIntyre in person. Who else
can say they had two WrestleMania moments in one night? While
McIntyre was having those two moments, her associate had an injury
that robbed him of his. Coming off the biggest night in McIntyre’s
career, it would be a shame if someone injured McIntyre and took the
McIntyre says he remembers what happened the last time they fought.

Video Package: Becky Lynch defeats Shayna Baszler to retain the Raw
Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 36
Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch makes her entrance to the ring.
It’s only been a few weeks since she stood her last. She knew she
had only a short time to beat Shayna Baszler, but she did it. Lynch
wants to clear up some of the confusion. She told Baszler that this
would be a test of heart vs. skill, but it was actually a battle of
the mind. A lot has been said about The Man. Maybe she’s arrogant
and let the title run get to her head or maybe she used it to get to
Baszler. The only person that can get close enough to the queen to
destroy her is the joker she sees as posing no threat. That’s why
she’s the threat. Someone who was born to bully will never beat
someone who is designed to survive.
That brings her to the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. She’s here to
challenge whoever wants this title the most to climb the ladder,
unhook the briefcase, and think of a time and place. There you will
find The Man, the champ, waiting for them. She always has a plan,
but she promises that whoever wins and thinks they can beat her,
she’ll shock the world one more time.

has accomplished so much, but he hasn’t won the Money in the Bank

months after, he could barely stand after a title match. Moments
later, Kane’s music hit and he took the title from him due to Money
in the Bank. Mysterio knows how dangerous the Money in the Bank
contract can be. First he has to beat Murphy. Mysterio has respect
for him. Murphy has a big future, but he doesn’t want it as badly as

Flair says it’s time for a history lesson. She won the 2020 Royal
Rumble and could choose any champion to face. There’s Becky Lynch.
Been there, done that. There’s Bayley. Been there, done that more.
You didn’t see Becky Lynch or Bayley make a challenge. You saw the
next big thing Rhea Ripley make the challenge. She got The Queen’s
attention. It was ballsy. That was then, this is now. Flair is a
two-time NXT Women’s Champion not because she beat Becky Lynch or
Bayley for the millionth time. She beat the next big thing, meaning
Charlotte Flair is the biggest thing. Last year, Vince McMahon
tasked her with saving the WrestleMania main event. This year,
Ripley challenges her because she wants to be Flair. Ripley lacks
There’s always someone faster, stronger, and better. Flair is going
to remind NXT about humility. Next up is Io Shirai. Flair is here to
teach lessons. Everyone bows down to The Queen.
