Last night we saw one of the most confusing things WWE has ever produced.

Ric Flair made his return to Monday Night Raw in Richmond, Virginia and delivered a great promo before backing Roman Reigns to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Battleground.

He then headed up the ramp as John Cena came out and the 15 time World Champion then handed Flair the World Heavyweight Championship belt and told him to "keep it."

Flair then took the title and Cena headed to the ring for the main event with just the one belt.

This led to a lot of confusion on social media as to whether this means the World Heavyweight Championship is now officially retired and the world title has finally become one belt.

If this was WWE's way of retiring the historic belt then this is probably one of the most sentimental ways in which they could have done it. The World Heavyweight Championship will always belong to Ric Flair and for the 16 time World Champion to be able to come back for what could be the last time and take the belt that basically belongs to him was a great way for the belt to go.


Of course this now stops the rumours that WWE will bring back the two world title belts because it seems there is now only one.

Smackdown tapings tonight or even Battleground on Sunday will tell the WWE Universe what actually happened and whether or not the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is now one belt.

The main event that was then set up saw John Cena and Roman Reigns in a handicap match against Kane, Seth Rollins and Randy Orton and fans finally saw Seth and Roman fight each other for the first time since The Shield break up.

The match ended in a DQ after Kane didn't stop when given a five count before havoc happened and Roman cleared the ring, spearing Cena in the process to set up what should be an epic match at Battleground.

Seth Rollins was injured in last night's main event as well, Mr Money in the Bank landed strange on his leg and looked to have blown his knee. Hopefully this wont effect his match with Dean Ambrose which is scheduled for Sunday night.

All the attention will focus on tonight's tapings now in order to find the answers we crave.
