-The hosts spoke about Charlotte beating Brie Bella at Fastlane and discussed her potential challengers. Graves noted the number of NXT women, but he settled on Sasha Banks as the challenger. Otunga agreed, saying Becky Lynch already had her chance. Booker picked Lynch and compared the match to an upcoming MMA fight.
-Backstage at Raw, Renee Young interviewed Dolph Ziggler, who admitted that Kevin Owens beat him. The Miz interrupted and spoke about how he deserves a title match. He boasted about headlining WrestleMania. Ziggler cut him off and said that was five years ago. He questioned what Miz has done to earn the right to be Intercontinental Champion. Ziggler said he doesn’t think Miz even deserves to be a WWE Superstar. Good segment.

They spoke about the premiere of their show last night and said they gave them a second show that will air tonight after Raw.
