Dusty Rhodes is in his office with Bo Dallas and Dusty says that it must have been unreal. Corey Graves wants to know what Bo is doing here. Dusty tells Corey that he asked him for something but Corey says that he does not want to give the title belt back to Dusty. Dusty says that Bo is here because he earned his spot as the winner of the Royal Rumble Challenge. Bo made it into the Royal Rumble and then he beat Wade Barrett the next night.

Dusty has an idea. He suggests that Corey faces Conor O’Brian and Bo Dallas in a Number One Contender Match. Bo likes the idea and Corey says that he will show Dusty, Bo, and Conor what he means by ‘Stay Down’.
