Booker says that Naomi needs to put her cheerleading character traits in the past, she needs to start looking out for herself. Carmella is yawning while Sam Roberts is talking. The panel talks about the possibility of Naomi walking into her hometown at WrestleMania as champion. Booker and Sam are going with Naomi to win. Renee is annoyed with Carmella’s lack of participation. Carmella doesn’t care about the match, but if she had a choice she’ll go with Alexa Bliss.

– Becky Lynch on the Social Media Lounge said that her goal tonight was to DisArm BOTH of Mickie James arms. If Becky had to pick a tag team partner from the past it would be Shawn Michaels.
