  • Bray Wyatt opens up the Firefly Fun House and says something is missing. He reveals the WWE Universal Championship and says no-one will take it away this time.

Bayley even highlights how Banks has historically been unable to successfully defend the title. Bayley adds they cannot lose on Sunday, which Banks agrees with. She knows exactly who she is and what she stands for.
