By Richard Trionfo on 2017-06-26 23:05:00

We are in Los Angeles, California and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Booker T.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

We see what happened last week when Braun Strowman and his ambulance returned to Raw.

Roman listens to the crowd prefer to see his opponent at the pay per view.

Roman says he is going to call it like it is and he says if you give him a moment, you might like it.  Last week on Raw, Samoa Joe finally put the Kokina Clutch on him and put him to sleep.  When he was done, Braun Strowman returned and he came out like a coward when Roman was down and he picked the bones.  Then he challenged Roman to an ambulance match at Great Balls of Fire.  Roman says he has been in a lot of matches but never an Ambulance Match, but he accepts the challenge.

He will put Strowman in that ambluance, close the door, and drive you straight to hell.  Roman says this is his yard.

An ambulance arrives in the arena and backs into the corner of the crowd.

Roman leaves the ring and walks to the ambulance.  Roman looks inside and then he looks around.  Roman opens the ambulance and no one is in there.  

Strowman attacks Roman from the side and sends him into the barrier and then throws him onto the stage by the throat.  Roman punches Strowman and Strowman almost falls off the stage.  Strowman blocks the Superman punch and Roman is tossed into the side of the ambulance.  Strowman puts Reigns in the ambulance and drives away.

We go to commercial.

We are back and we see what happened during the opening segment when Braun Strowman introduced Roman Reigns into the ambulance.

Booker says Braun has ambushed him the last few weeks, but he has faith in Roman when it is face to face.
