Hunter says he did not see it until now. Hunter says he bought into the "i'm the Man" crap like everyone else. You are not the man. You are just a self destructor, afraid of failure. You can stand there with that smug look on your face, but Hunter says she knows he is right. You are looking for a way out of this thing. When you scratched and clawed your way to the pinnacle of your career. You got your match at Survivor Series and you came to Raw and wrecklessly found a way out of the match. You knew it was a suicide mission and you did it. You came out the next night and claimed to be a martyr. You said you are in medical prison and it is a convenient excuse.
You scratched and clawed your way back to get a match at Wrestlemania. Now, here we are with the convenient excuse looking for a way out. The truth is that you are afraid. You are scared. That is what this is all about. You are afraid to go to the doctor and scared of what they will say. Hunter says he does not believe that Becky is injured. He asks if this is an act to get out of the match. You'll say that you are scared and then they will tell you that you cannot go to Wrestlemania. You are scared that the doctor will say that you can go to Wrestlemania and you can face Ronda Rousey. If you do, you are afraid that at Wrestlemania, Ronda Rousey will expose you as the fraud you are.
Hunter says that Becky is afraid that on the biggest stage of them all with the world watching, that you will show that Becky Lynch fears Ronda Rousey. Becky slaps Hunter.
