It was a night of revelations on RAW as four big shifts took place as the show was held in Miami Florida.

Opening with Triple H coming to the ring and taking a fairly comical slam at the opinions of fans on social media.

When he issued the ultimatum to every superstar that if they impressed him on the night, he would decide who will face John Cena at Summer Slam for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

When he was joined at ringside by Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and Kane, a brawl ensued and the WWE's COO made a great match to kick-off RAW.

He did eventually make his decision about Cena's next competitor and after his first choice in Randy Orton was attacked by Roman Reigns, Triple H was convinced to put his faith in the newest and oldest Paul Heyman guy.

Eager to leave and join his wife though, Triple H didn't hang around leaving Heyman and his newest client in the ring.

Where was Stephanie you ask? Well first this happened before a four-on-one handicap match as Nikki Bella took on Alicia Fox, Eva Marie, Cameron and Rosa Mendes.

And that led to this.......

In a backstage segment with the Authority, Cesaro revealed that he is no longer a Paul Heyman guy and following the conclusion of the show, everyone realised why.

It led to a challenge for Cesaro to turn Dean Ambrose from unfinished business for the Authority to finished business.

The fourth big shift came in a seemingly simple divas tag team match.

So Paige and AJ seem to have ceased being 'frenemies' and are now just plain old enemies.

Chris Jericho was set to be hosting his Battleground opponent Bray Wyatt on the Highlight reel, but when the Wyatt's attacked him in the back before the show, it received a new and unique host.

The WWE's comic Damian Sandow emerged dressed as LeBron James (while in Miami - that did not go down well) but he fell to Bo Dallas.

Zack Ryder beat Fandango after coming out with Fandango's former partners Summer Rae and Layla who in the end, cost Fandango the match by pushing his foot off the ropes so Ryder could get the three count.

Big E and Kofi Kingston teamed up but lost in a tag match to Rybaxel, after the match, Xavier Woods told them to start getting mean and take what they want.

Rusev's path to resembling a human continued as he showed a lot of discomfort in his ankle which was in the Patriot Lock at Battleground, despite that he managed a submission victory over the Great Khali.

Perhaps the best match of the night went to the newly crowned Intercontinental Champion The Miz and Dolph Ziggler who produced a classic encounter.

As a side note

The WWE's big celebrity guest in Miami was the obvious choice of Flo Rida, before taking to the stage he got into an altercation backstage with another band member.

If you ever wondered what a Flo Rida concert where he doesn't sing 50% of the time looks like, he nailed it on RAW.
