Despite that, Kai says Baszler is bully and someone she's allowed to get inside her head. Baszler shows up (of course) and wonders why Kai has suddenly gone so quiet. "You know you don't stand a chance, right?" Kai finally responds, "We'll see about that." Baszler seemed surprised by that reaction.

- Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae head out to the ring.

He says he's put his body through a lot and after talking with Candice it's time to start thinking about their future. Crowd is worried. Gargano wonders if it's worth it. Crowd with a "Yes!" chant. With the injuries and the toll it's taking on his friends, family and wife, is it worth it? Selfish crowd chants "Yes!" again.
He says it's worth it! Candice is happy with this and tries to get him to chill out. He calls out Tommaso Ciampa. Candice bails out of the ring and heads to the back. Ciampa tells Gargano if he doesn't leave the ring by the time he gets there he's going to finish him. A bunch of referees try to keep Gargano away and actually get him out of the ring as Ciampa gets into it. Candice tries to get him to calm down and think of the future, she wants him to go to the back as Ciampa smiles and waves goodbye. Ciampa "Be a good little boy and listen to your wife."

Ciampa leaves through the crowd.
