Becky Lynch asks how it feels, expecting a man, but getting an answer from THE MAN!

She says that while it's great to be back, it's not so simpel anymore.  She says that she wasn't just aiming to overtake Charlotte on the posters, but him too. She says that she's The person to take his role. 

She then says that if he has a problem...Nikki Bella won't be the only one to drop him.

They're then interrupted by Andrade 'Cien' Almas and Zelina Vega
...
John Cena keeps repeating "WHY" before asking "Why am I here?". He doesn't have a reason. He even references Nikki Bella leaving him  and asks for someone's music to hit so he has a reason. 

BECKY LYNCH ANSWERS! 
...
John Cena says it's been one hell of a year. He brought a ticket to WrestleMania...and regrets having those beers before his match. He wrote a children's book, spent 6 months in China and even makes fun of his own hairstyle!

John Cena is back!

DeVille almost knocks Naomi out, but the former champion kicks out. DeVille has her locked in and Rose takes the mic. She says that he couldn't help but think of her husband and shows a picture she sent him..It's her wearing just a towel (to be fair, she posts more revealing photos on her Instagram alone, so it's kind of funny). 

Naomi gets distracted and DeVille hits a strong new finisher that's a vicious DDT of sorts.
