After The Match
Renee Young interviews Langston right after his win in the ring. Langston keeps mentioning Boston for cheap pops. He says when he won the I-C title it’s just like when your Boston Red Sox became the World Series Champions. Wonder if that was an isolated promo, or if his gimmick will be to blatantly do multiple cheap pops everytime he talks. I hope that’s not going to be his gimmick, he’s better than that.

She insults all of them one-by-one but then says Total Divas has new episodes airing on the E! network now and none of them are on any of them. She tells them to start their own show by stealing this one tonight. She hops away.
