- As noted, last night's WWE RAW saw Lacey Evans defeat Natalya to become the new #1 contender to RAW & SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch, for the red brand title. Above is post-show video of Cathy Kelley asking Evans how big the night was for her.
"Other than the fact that I broke a nail because of that nasty thing, I have been coming out week after week keeping an eye on what I'm gonna be up against," Evans said. "Now, if it was my choice I would've been in the main event at WrestleMania, but I wasn't and Becky Lynch holds both women's championships. Now that I do have an opportunity to go after the RAW Women's Championship, that is exactly what I intend to do. I have proven myself not only walking down those ramps week after week, but what I did to Natalya today. So, if you would hurry up and get out of my face, because I have a big manly challenge ahead of me and I'm gonna take every opportunity to take what is rightfully mine."
- WWE has a new poll asking fans which new red brand tag team will be the first to win the RAW Tag Team Titles. As of this writing, 49% voted for The Usos while 32% voted for Ricochet and Aleister Black, 19% voted for WWE NXT Tag Team Champions The Viking Experience.
