Vince McMahon comes down to the ring with bodyguard Jinder Mahal and daughter Stephanie. Vince says that last night was a complete disaster. He mentions Mahal losing his belt to the legendary Goldberg. Vince also mentions that Roman Reigns, Finn Balor, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe & Dean Ambrose ALL won their championship matches. Vince says all wasn’t lost though, as Sasha Banks came through. Vince praises his daughter for her involvement in destroying Asuka’s perfect streak. The Fashion Police interrupt on the stage and tell Vince that they have a clue as to what is going on. They begin an evidence slideshow on the big screen, showing some of the powerful items in WWE (Wyatt’s Lantern, Undertaker’s Urn, New Day’s Unicorn Horns). They then move on to ‘exhibit b’ which shows Vince using the urn on Triple H. They move to ‘exhibit c’ which shows Big Show ’00 walking around backstage. Vince asks what all of that proves? The Fashion Police respond by saying that Vince is after all of WWE’s powerful items like Triple H was, but believe Vince got rid of Triple H because he wants them for himself. Vince laughs with Mahal & Stephanie, telling them that if he wanted those items he would have them already. The Fashion Police say Vince is probably right, but there is one other thing he, Triple H & Stephanie have been after since taking over – and that’s all the championship belts. The Fashion Police say they have solved the case, and that the McMahon family is after all the championship belts because the belts posses similar powers that all the other WWE items posses. The Fashion Police believe that’s why non-champions feel a surge of electricity whenever they touch championship belts, because it’s infected with some sort of power. Vince says he has heard enough and orders Mahal to go attack the Fashion Police. Randy Orton comes in out of nowhere and RKO’s Mahal! Vince is fuming as the Viper exits the ring and heads towards the Fashion Police. The Fashion Police warn Vince they have sent their full report to the WWE Board of Directors to review. They smile on stage as Vince is not happy, with Stephanie trying to calm him down.

In Vince’s office, Stephanie is trying to convince her father that they need to go full head with their plan now. Vince is reluctant, saying Triple H was doing the same and it got them here. Stephanie says that ‘company face’ doesn’t matter anymore, since the Fashion Police cracked the case. Vince says they only solved half the case, because no one knows how the championship belts work to summon their true powers. Stephanie agrees, but believes if the Fashion Police & Orton continue to snoop around then they’ll find out the truth like they already have done. Vince agrees, and says that getting Cena to use the Urn on himself was easy, but getting rid of Randy Orton might be more difficult. Mahal enters enraged, with an ice pack over his neck. He demands his WWE Championship rematch against Goldberg. Vince tells Jinder to calm down, and he’ll have revenge on Orton next week on Raw. He tells Jinder he won’t get a rematch against Goldberg because he has other plans for ‘Bill’. He tells Jinder that he will get a championship rematch though because Vince plans on carrying through with their ‘agreement’. Stephanie asks what deal they made? Vince tells Stephanie the plan is the same, only Jinder will be their ‘guy’. Stephanie doesn’t seem convinced or pleased to hear her father’s words.

That’s why the arena went to ECW when Paul Heyman was in the ring as the urn opened up. Bigelow closes his eyes, then slowly opens the urn as Vince has a sinister smile.
