You cannot say that this was an uneventful episode of WWE RAW. From Roman Reigns announcing that he's been cleared to Ronda Rousey seemingly relinquishing the RAW Women's Championship, to Batista's return, it was packed with more surprises than I could name in my '5 Surprises for RAW' article.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night came after the Dean Ambrose vs Drew McIntyre match. There was the tease of a Shield reunion as Reigns and Rollins came out to save their treacherous friend from harm. And in my mind, this was a pretty huge mistake.
For Rollins and Reigns, this is a massive step down. And I shall say why this is the case in this article.
Feel free to disagree and sound off in the comments section below.
#5 Dean Ambrose has no momentum at the moment
Dean Ambrose was part of perhaps the best heel turn in recent memory, in my opinion. He turned against Seth Rollins on the very same night that Roman Reigns announced to the world that he had leukemia and that he would be relinquishing the Universal Championship. The timing stunned the world and made Ambrose into a figure reviled by everyone.
But somehow, WWE did not book Ambrose right and I would even go as far as to say that his heel run has been a complete disaster. From a lunatic, he became a germaphobe, and his match against Seth Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship got 'boring' chants from the audience that was in attendance. And now, he's been suffering one loss after another.
The truth of the matter is that Ambrose is the only man who stands to gain from yet another Shield reunion. And to be honest, it shouldn't matter to him...
