We go backstage and see Renee Young, who is getting ready to interview AJ Lee. Young asks AJ what her level of concern heading into the match is. AJ says she always wins when it counts. She says nobody has her number and she is the only woman who actually matters. She says she has been the Champion for 182 days, but that’s not good enough to win Diva of the Year. She says Natalya, the WWE Universe, Total Divas, and the Slammys are all jokes.
