Bengaluru, Sep 3: We have got a shocking end to the fatal-4-way match on Raw to crown a new WWE Universal Champion.
Triple H returned after a hiatus of nearly five months to cost his former protégé, Seth Rollins the championship by attacking him with a pedigree.
The Game then himself handed Owens the new championship as to take him under his wings, thereafter whereas Stephanie and the GM, Mick Foley could not believe their eyes.
Owens celebrated shouting “it’s my show” aftermath as the crowd chanted “you deserve it”. Before leaving the ring, Triple H had a stare-down with his wife and Mick Foley.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio claimed that WWE has planned a refreshing angle and hence they would turn Seth Rollins face.
He will be the face of the Raw brand and hence his babyface turn is evident. He will challenge Owens for the new Universal Championship.
In addition, he will continue to carry his feud with Triple H, too which will finally culminate their dream match at Wrestlemania 33 into fruition.
It is worthy to mention that this match was originally planned for Wrestlemania 32 but got cancelled once Rollins was out of action due to the knee injury.
Meltzer also pointed out the fact that last week’s championship match was originally announced as a fatal-4-way match but contested in an elimination capacity.
It means the planning for the match and Triple H’s return was sketched just days prior to Monday Night Raw.
There may be more fresh things are in store in the upcoming days in the storyline to establish Rollins as a face.
However, Meltzer did not like the way Owens was handed the championship. It was just a copy paste situation that Rollins had during his championship matches last year.
But, he admitted it was a fresh idea that WWE decided to come up with and the audience applauded the move a lot. Owens got one of the best pop of the decade after winning the championship despite being the heel.
Now, we are left with a plethora of questions to be answered on next week’s Raw. What will be the future of Owens-Jericho tag team?
Will Triple H stand against his wife and Mick Foley? Will the feud between Triple H and Seth Rollins start unfolding, from now on and last but not the list will we see a babyface Rollins starting from next week’s Monday Night Raw?
