WWE RAW REPORT: EVERYONE WANTS A PIECE OF THE HARDYS . . . BUT WILL THEY BREAK?, BROCK'S NEXT OPPONENT WILL BE DETERMINED NEXT WEEK, THE ANGLE CONTROVERSY ENDS NEXT WEEK, AND MORE

Last night at Great Balls of Fire, Roman Reigns battled Braun Strowman in an ambulance match.  After the match, Roman Reigns took out the frustration of losing the match to put Strowman into the ambulance and back it into the trailer of a semi truck.

We are in Houston, Texas and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Booker T

Colin Cassady makes his way to the ring.

Colin has a sarcastic How You Doin' and he says he is feeling spectacular.  He says he cannot feel any better about what he did to Enzo last night.  Colin has them show photos of what happened on Sunday.  When there was a glimpse of hope he ended it with a boot to the face.  Colin says he was standing over Enzo, just like he always has been.

Colin says that was not the best part.  The best part was on pay per view.  We see video of Enzo being helped in the back.

Colin says that should serve as notice to the entire locker room.  From the bottom of the totem pole to the top of the totem pole.  That is what happens when you mess with Big Cass.  To all of the people who never supported him, don't for a second think you can support him now.  He says not to hop on the bandwagon because he is the future of WWE.  To all of the doubters, one day he will be the Universal Champion and when he wins the title, he will shove it down each and every one of your throats.  Colin says he will be Universal Champion.  He will main event Wrestlemania.  He will be on The Tonight Show.  He will represent the WWE.  Nobody can touch him.  Nobody is on his level.  Nobody can see him eye to eye. 

Big Show's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.  

They stand across from each other in the ring and Colin has some words for him.  Show with a head butt and he punches Cassady and has him in a front face lock.  Show with a Gator Roll and he punches Colin and kicks him.  Show with knees to Cassady.  

Cassady gets out of the ring.

The announcers talk more about the aftermath of the ambulance match and we will get an update later tonight.

Brock Lesnar will be on Raw tonight.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Elias Samson is in the ring and he wants to know who wants to walk with Elias.  He needs the people of Houston to keep your cell phones down and hold your applause until he is finished.  Elias says he wrote this for Finn Balor.  

Finn Balor's not the savior, he's just a man.  He tried to upstage him, but didn't understand.  Tonight, he knocks him off his pedestal and leaves him laying again.  Not a single man was the same since he was through.  Houston, we have a problem . . . 

Finn Balor's music interrupts.
