Rusev has been defending his wife Lana’s honor by kicking Enzo Amore & Big Cass’ butts for the last few weeks. On the Roadblock: End of the Line Kickoff, it was Cass’ turn to stand up for his little buddy Zo.
After several minutes of intro promos from Lana & Enzo, of course. Amore’s went on longer, working in a few “Russian hack” jokes, some reframing of the infamous hotel room scene from the Dec. 5 Raw, and promising to keep running his mouth
When the action started, it was all Cass... to the point that the former United States champion tried to flee through the crowd.

That was, of course, a trick. Leading to Rusev crushing Enzo back the ring area after a run-in with Lana (where she made it look like the Smacktalker Skywalker had injured her).

The seven-footer went to check on his little buddy while his opponent rolled back under the ropes before the referee counted ten.
And this program probably isn’t over.
