Big Cass Kicks Off Raw
The seven-foot-tall trash-talker kicks off tonight’s show. He talks sh*t about Enzo and even the crowd. He won’t accept them if they jump on the Big Cass bandwagon. Cass has big plans for the future; he’s going to win the Universal Championship, appear on talk shows, and become the biggest star of this business. Why? Because no one can touch Big Cass. No one is at his level…
The Big Show’s music hits. Maybe this giant can shut this Casshole up.

Show picks up Cass and tries to inflict more punishment. But Big Cass gets the hell out of there.
