Last night’s show was the first Raw of 2016. The main event saw Roman Reigns defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Sheamus, with Mr. McMahon as special guest referee.
Below are 9 things that should be noted from last night’s WWE Raw:
9. Social Outcast (a.k.a JOB Squad 2.0)
Heath Slater came out on WWE Raw along with Adam Rose, Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel. Slater faced former World Champion Dolph Ziggler and went on to pin him.
Slater then revealed the name of his new stable, “Social Outcast”.
8. No John Cena
Prior to Raw, WWE was teasing that 15 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena might get a rematch against Alberto Del Rio for the United States Championship. But forget about a rematch, Cena wasn’t even in a segment on Raw.
7. Dean Ambrose Lays Out Kevin Owens
On last week’s Raw, Kevin Owens put Ambrose through the announce table. On this week’s Raw, Ambrose got his revenge when he elbow-dropped Owens through the announce table.
The two will now face each other on SmackDown in an Intercontinental Title match.
