In a SmackDown Exclusive, Lyra Valkyria commented on Jax advancing to the finals.

"I’ve just realized, I don’t think I have ever been in the ring either an opponent as big or as strong as Nia Jax. But the stakes just got a whole lot higher. We are now looking at who is going to go to SummerSlam for a championship match and be the Queen of the Ring. If there’s one thing I know about me, I perform best when the stakes are the highest and the pressure is the highest. I’ve got a lot of momentum on my side right now. I just beat a former WWE Women’s Champion. I think I can take her," Valkyria said.
