RAW had a major main event tonight as Daniel Bryan took on Seth Rollins for the chance to take on Roman Reigns at Fastlane.
It was announced as a way of resolving the left over controversy from the Royal Rumble but it may cause more problems than anything else.
In the match between Rollins and Bryan, the Big Show and J&J Security eventually came to ringside as the odds continued to mount against Bryan.
The appearance of Reigns himself levelled the odds as he took out both J&J and the Big Show.
Bryan eventually got the win in the match and earned himself a one way ticket to Fastlane in order to challenge for the chance to main event WrestleMania XXXI.

- WWE legend backed to make big return - could solve wrestling's 'biggest problem'
- Roman Reigns slams his critics with explosive statement
The winner of the match between Reigns and Bryan will go to WrestleMania XXXI and take on Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
With a title match at WrestleMania on the line, the WWE have set up a huge main event for the February PPV.
The clash of the Rumble names
Coming from tonight's RAW, we now have a main event that is going to set the tone for the crowd react at the end of Fastlane.
After the Royal Rumble, the fans booed Roman Reigns for winning the 30-man Rumble match and there is largely believed to be one man to blame.
The return of Bryan gave every fan the belief that they would get to see the leader of the YES movement headline WrestleMania once again.
Bryan was however eliminated early on from the Rumble and that largely contributed to the hostile reaction that greeted the end of the Rumble match.
Another bad decision
Pitting Bryan against Reigns at Fastlane for the right to go to WrestleMania is in my opinion a very bad move by the WWE.
They are now in a lose-lose situation as either way, there is going to be some unrest.
Should Reigns beat Bryan at Fastlane it will surely result in a second consecutive PPV where the ending will be met by a hostile crowd.
The crowd are squarely in Daniel Bryan's corner and a win for Reigns could once again lead to the WWE Universe being outraged and once again claiming that they're holding Bryan back.
Whilst the fans would really want to see Bryan win at Fastlane, if he does that, the company then look weak and like they will give in to any pressure put on by the fans.
It is now a lose-lose situation for the WWE in my opinion and I hope they have a good plan for Fastlane or they may see another wasted PPV.
