We are back and Asuka makes her way to the ring.

Charly Caruso asks Asuka about her appearance at Fastlane.  She brings up the fact that most expected her to challenge Alexa, but she chose Charlotte.

Before Asuka can speak, Alexa Bliss' music plays and she is joined by Mickie James on the stage.  

Alexa says last night was so exciting.  Alexa mentions the look on Charlotte's face.  Alexa says Asuka's English isn't so great so she will tell Charly about the change of events.  Alexa says Asuka is a fierce competitor and even if she does not speak the language very well, she is very smart.  Asuka has the longest undefeated streak in WWE.  Mickie asks Alexa how does she keep that streak going.  Alexa says Asuka is very smart and she wouldn't want to step in the ring with her at Wrestlemania.  Mickie points out that Asuka is the Empress of Tomorrow and that nobody is ready for Asuka.

Alexa says she defied the odds by defeating five other opponents and a future Hall of Famer.  She says she redefined what it means to be a Raw Women's Champion.  Asuka knows that she cannot beat Alexa.  It might be cowardly to back away from a fight, but when you know you can't win, it is smart strategy.  Alexa says she will be rooting for Asuka to knock the Queen off her throne.  She is looking forward to seeing Asuka winning the title of the B Show.

Asuka says she chose Charlotte because to be the woman, you have to beat the woman.  Asuka says she wanted to face the best women's champion.   

Alexa says Asuka wanted to face the easier champion to defeat so she chose Charlotte.

Asuka says she beat Alexa already and she can beat her again right now.

Alexa tells Asuka to dream on.  Asuka gets to face someone who has unfinished business with Asuka . . . this woman.

Alexa and Mickie point to the stage and no one comes out.  They wonder where Nia is.

Alexa pushes Asuka and Mickie takes Asuka down.  Mickie says she is ready for Asuka.

We go to commercial.

Kurt Angle is in his office and he says he knew Bray was crazy, but what happened to Matt.  Kurt says that since Bray and Matt are both Raw superstars, he needs a Raw referee for Ultimate Deletion.  The referee asks if he did something wrong.  Kurt says he does not know what will happen in the match but he knows it will be mayhem.  He wants them both back on Raw in one piece.
