Are Enzo Amore & Big Cass in line for a Raw Tag Team Title opportunity?
Last week’s Raw Tag Team Championship Match pitting Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson against Sheamus & Cesaro ended in calamity thanks to Enzo Amore & Big Cass. Now The Realest Guys in the Room are looking for a title bout of their own.
Now that Enzo & Big Cass have gotten the better of rivals Rusev & Jinder Mahal, are they now primed to take Raw’s tandem titles from Gallows & Anderson or, as The Certified Gs call them, “Big Gal” and “Andy”?
After making short work of four local competitors in last week’s Handicap Match, Braun Strowman was still hungry for competition, prompting Raw General Manager Mick Foley to put The Monster Among Men up against Roman Reigns at WWE Fastlane. Clearly not willing to wait until March 5 to get his hands on The Big Dog, Strowman emerged during last week’s main event and brutalized Reigns in a relentless attack that concluded only when the behemoth had driven his prey through the ringside barricade.
Will Reigns repay Strowman with a vicious attack of his own this Monday night, or will the juggernaut continue to destroy everyone in his path?
