WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins battled United States Champion AJ Styles in singles action this week on Monday Night RAW.

The main event was, for obvious reasons, crashed by RAW Tag Team Champions Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson who attacked Rollins despite being sent off by the referee earlier.

The O.C. completely laid waste to The Beastslayer and then subjected Ricochet to a heavy beatdown. The One And Only had made a valiant effort to save Rollins but eventually failed in his attempt.

It was ultimately Braun Strowman who showed up and decimated the heels. The Monster received an enormous pop and stole the show as RAW went off the air.

On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that Strowman is next in line to challenge Rollins for the Universal Title next month at Clash Of Champions.

“It is Braun Strowman in the Charlotte main event, unless Vince changes his mind, but I don’t think he’s going to. I think that one is pretty much — which is weird because they do everything to make Seth into a babyface and they bring in Braun who’s going to be a super babyface the way that they brought him in and just because he’s been kinda forgotten about for a few weeks just because they didn’t have anything on Summerslam for him.”

“So the people were going to react big to him. You know, yeah they need some contenders and I guess he’s the guy. You know, there’s nobody else. I mean, they could do Drew, but I guess they’re not. I guess they figured that Drew’s been mired so long in this thing with Cedric that you know he’s not quite ready for that spot.”

A babyface vs babyface title feud sounds awkward but WWE might as well proceed with the rivalry for the huge response received by The Monster last night in Toronto.
