Becky says she fought her entire life to get where she is but what would Stephanie know about struggle. She asks Stephanie if she’s ever had to struggle for anything in her life but no because Stephanie never had to fight for anything but Becky wants to fight for everything.
Becky says there’s nothing Stephanie or a doctor can do about her competing at Wrestlemania. Stephanie says it’s a liability to let her compete, all she has to do is go see the doctor and be cleared. Unless the knee is worse than she’s letting on and even if she doesn’t believe her, Stephanie says she cares for Becky. Stephanie tells Becky to go see the doctor, this is not about tricks or games, this is about Becky’s health. Stephanie asks Becky if she will see the doctor to which Becky says she won’t take her moment away from her. Stephanie says she won’t but it’s her choice.
