– LA Knight makes his way to the ring. Knight says let me talk to you. He says this is the season and everyone is talking about how they want a WrestleMania moment, but Knight didn’t come here for WrestleMania moments, he came here to make money and win titles, by being the best and how doe she do that? By going to WrestleMania. Yeah, he says as he points up at the sign. Knight says here’s the twist – he’s not the one who will be having a WrestleMania moment because you can’t have a LA WrestleMania without LA Knight, and what that means is… he’s going to give WrestleMania a LA Knight moment. Yeah.
The music interrupts and here comes The New Day – Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston. Kofi says Knight doesn’t understand how this works.

He says Flair sounds jealous and bitter because she knows Ripley is the hottest thing in WWE right now, and no other woman has entered the Royal Rumble at #1 and won it all. Flair smiles and Dominik says she’s beautiful, she should smile more. He goes on about how Ripley is dominant and strong, so strong she almost breaks his back when she hugs him, and when she… Flair interrupts. 
Charlotte Flair says she has a real Latino man at home who calls her mami, referring to AEW’s Andrade El Idolo, and his accent is much thicker. Fans pop. Dominik brings up some of the similarities he has with Flair being generational Superstars. Fans boo. Dominik just knows his father was worse, and that really messed him up.

– We see footage from earlier today with Natalya talking to Adam Pearce in the trainer’s room. Pearce said tonight’s match against Shayna Baszler is totally up to her, and she said she wants to do it. Pearce advised Natalya to watch her back because wherever Baszler goes, Ronda Rousey is also there. Tegan Nox is seen listening in the background.

Wyatt is seen backstage in a production area now, laughing at last week’s promo where he warned the winner of Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley.

Bray Wyatt welcomes us to Funhouse News now, and he’s joined by Ramblin’ Rabbit. Wyatt says it’s not OK here. He talks about some dragon, with seven horns and ten crowns, but says more importantly, who opened the door? He says it’s time for the weather now and it looks like a blacked-out Uncle Howdy briefly does the weather but not really. 
Bray Wyatt appears as some sort of game show host now, and “Can You Keep a Secret” is the name of the show. Can you keep a secret? A voice-over continues to make different references to “can you keep a secret?” now – the Channel 6 line-up is only shows called “Can You Keep a Secret.” We go back to the Funhouse front door and there’s several graphics flashing outside of the door. Wyatt appears somewhere wearing his black mask now. He says, if I told you a story, could you keep a secret? That ends the segment.
– Jimmy Uso, Solo Sikoa and Paul Heyman are at backstage again. Jimmy says he really needs to work things out with Jey Uso tonight. Heyman says he hopes they do because he just received a text message from Roman Reigns, which he shows to Jimmy.
