Bayley, furious, hits Bianca with the basketball and launches her shoulder first into the ring post. Bianca cries out, and is seen in pure agony as she reaches for her shoulder. 

02:37 (GMT)23 JAN 2021

Bayley introduces the event and demands to start it off. The tire is flipped in seven seconds, and Bayley clears the next obstacle in ten seconds. It takes her some time to clear the walls, which she does by simply running around them. The fourth part of the trial, the firemans carry, sees her barely get Chad Gable across the line. After putting the basketball in the goal, Bayley's time is 1:12. 

After that, she "EST's" the course, giving Bianca tougher obstacles. Bianca, of course, easily tosses the tire, the hurdles, and the walls. However, while Bayley got to lift Chad Gable, Bianca Belair lifts Otis. Of course, Bianca easily gets Otis across before crossing up Bayley to hit a dunk. Bianca ends it with seventeen seconds to spare.

The Street Profits try to get Sonya Deville to give them a shot at the tag titles. Deville knows they deserve a shot, but Montez Ford is still injured. Fow now, they should stay backstage and hype up SmackDown while other tag teams get their opportunities. When Ford's healed up, they'll be right back in the title picture. 

Dawkins and Ford claim to be okay with the decision, but after handing her a fruit basket, we see that they have other plans. 

02:24 (GMT)23 JAN 2021

Kevin Owens isn't allowed in the building, so he cuts a promo from his car. He says that Roman has two victories over him since they've started this, but both were won by his family. He goes onto explain his tattoos and how many of them represent his family. His knuckles on his left hand, specifically, are the initials of his grandfathers. Both of those men meant so much to Owens and were his biggest supporters when he was coming up. They died a few years before Owens got to WWE. Owens also fights for family, for those that built him up to who he is today, but he won't be using them to get the win.

02:08 (GMT)23 JAN 2021

Backstage, Paul Heyman is praising Roman Reigns for his ingenious thinking, believing that Reigns plans on making a similar swap like they got last week to the match tonight. Reigns had no such plans and is upset that Heyman even thinks that's a possibility. Heyman needs to handle his business like a man. 

Looks like this is actually happening.
