• RAW Star Refuses To Get A Universal Title Or Intercontinental Title Match On Tonight’s RAW

Shield member Dean Ambrose kicked off tonight’s RAW and got interviewed by Charly Caruso. Charly questioned Ambrose if he plans on leaving The Shield.

Ambrose first teased that he would leave The Shield, but then talked about how The Shield is a brotherhood and that he won’t turn his back on his brothers.

Acting RAW General Manager Baron Corbin then came out and gave Ambrose 3 options for tonight:

1. Face Seth Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship

2. Face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship

3. Face Braun Strowman

Ambrose gave Corbin a 4th option and challenged him to a match. Corbin refused and booked Ambrose vs. Strowman in the opening match on RAW.

During the ending moments of this match, Roman Reigns came out to make the save for Ambrose when Strowman was destroying Dean.

Reigns hit a Superman Punch on Strowman and caused the DQ. Rollins came out as well and this led to Reigns & Rollins clotheslining Strowman out of the ring.

This led to Corbin coming out and announcing that Reigns will face Dolph Ziggler now and Rollins will face Drew McIntyre later in the ring.

While facing Ziggler, Reigns wanted to put the Universal Title on the line, but Corbin rejected Reigns’ wish and noted that Reigns will defend his Title straight at WWE Crown Jewel PPV next against Strowman and Brock Lesnar in a Triple Threat match.

After good back & forth action, Reigns defeated Ziggler after hitting a vicious Spear.

Later in the night, McIntyre defeated Rollins after distraction from Ziggler.
