Here we go! Roman Reigns starts us off. Reigns and Braun are set for the Ambulance Match at Great Balls of Fire. Crowd is chanting "We want Strowman." Reigns says he is going to call it like it is, Samoa Joe locked in the Coquina Clutch and Strowman kicked him while he was down. Roman officially accepts the Ambulance Match challenge, and Roman says he is going to take Strowman straight to hell at Great Balls of Fire. Roman is interrupted by an ambulance driving in to the stadium. Roman makes his way to the ambulance. He looks through the back window but can't see in, he opens the door but there is nothing there. Braun comes from behind and throws Roman onto the stage. Roman comes back with a right hand, goes for a Superman Punch and Strowman throws him into the side of the ambulance. Strowman throws him into the back of the ambulance and shuts the door. The ambulance leaves with Reigns in the back.

Goldust says it is showtime, tonight "The Shattered Truth" hits Hollywood. The Golden Age is back.
Goldust makes his way to the ring, he has his own personal cinematographer with him (dressed in gold, of course) in the ring. Now time for R-Truth, who looks mad coming to the ring.
Goldust starts off with a right hand, stomps, more right hands with Truth on the ground. The bell has not rung yet. Goldust continues to beat Truth around the ringpost, driving his face into it. Goldust moves to the second rope and stares down at Truth. Apparently, Goldust had no interest in a match, just wanted to beat up Truth.
Backstage, Heyman says that Brock Lesnar will be here at Raw tonight, will call out Samoa Joe, Joe comes up behind Heyman threatening the Clutch, Joe says he knows Heyman is just an advocate, and tonight Brock will be in the Coquina Clutch.
