Becky says six weeks ago she stopped waiting and started taking. Since that night in Brooklyn, she has been the best thing about Smackdown. Since she ran through the entire locker room and toppled the Queen, she runs this division. It is the most relevant thing in WWE. She learned that being kind and being patient gets you nothing but stabbed in the back and treated like a fool. Not no more. She is relentless. She strikes first.
We take a look at what has happened since SummerSlam between Becky and Charlotte.
Becky asks if that was nice and she says she could watch that all day. Time and time again, she has proven that she has owned Charlotte Flair. The more they change, the more they stay the same. Where is her magazine cover? Where is the action figure with her holding the title belt? She has to see the person she beat doing media events. She will prove it is this face that belongs on the magazines and posters. If they won't do it for her, she will do it herself.
