Braun Strowman vs. Kane And A Cruiserweight Title Match Set For Next Week

WWE has a Cruiserweight Championship match set after a great showing from their 205-pound division, while Kane looks to inflict punishment on Braun Strowman.

Drew Gulak will take on fellow top contender Rich Swann to take on WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore on next week's episode of WWE Monday Night Raw. There's a bit of a conflict here, however, as Gulak is a member of Enzo's entourage, known as the "Zo Train."

Winner: Drew Gulak

After the match, Charly Caruso asks Drew Gulak about facing Rich Swann next week. Gulak wants to five a power point presentation and it doesn’t happen.

Swann earned his way into the match last week by beating Ariya Daivari, Noam Dar and Akira Tozawa. He looks to capture the WWE Cruiserweight Championship for the second time.

Meanwhile, Kane showed up after Braun Strowman unmercifully destroyed Elias during tonight's episode of Raw. He said he and Braun will step into the ring again next week and that only one monster will emerge. They've battled since TLC, when Kane put Strowman in a trash compactor. He, being a monster, survived this and have attacked each other on a weekly basis ever since.
