SmackDown Live kicked off with Becky Lynch arriving in her car backstage. The crowd chanted for Becky and she was stopped by Kayla Braxton. She said she's going to answer the question of whether she's ready for Asuka in the ring.
Becky ran into Heavy Machinery and The New Day backstage. Heavy Machinery put pancakes, whole eggs and ground it in a mixer. They drank it while The New Day were disgusted.
Becky took a sip of it too. She went to the ring and the crowd erupted. Becky started talking about the hype and how everyone's been trying to be a bad**s. She talked about how Asuka's hype died down at WrestleMania.
