Smackdown Women's Champion Naomi was interviewed by the panel and said she has been in tough situations before and that her struggles have prepared her for moments like this. She also said that she wasn't nervous about all the new women coming after her and has allowed someone who has never had a singles match to face her for the championship. Booker T was all over her for preparing her for a possible secon title defense against the Money in the Bank winner if she is able to get by Lana. Naomi didn't make a clear pick for the ladder match but Sam Roberts said Charlotte while Booker T predicted Charlotte.
Smackdown Tag Team Champions The Usos were in the Social Media Lounge to answer questions "What does 'One Day Ish' mean," "How is facing New Day different from any other tag team" and "If you could face any legendary tag team who would it be?"
