Tonight saw the first live episode of Smackdown for a number of years and it opened with a bit of a mystery.
With the absence of Monday Night RAW this week due to the horrendous weather conditions in Connecticut, the fall-out from the Royal Rumble was stopped.
Whilst a show aired from WWE studios, many people were still interested to see how they would react to a very poorly received Royal Rumble climax.
The Rumble match from Sunday night was met with a chorus of boos as Roman Reigns stood tall on the stage where a year earlier he had fallen one elimination short.
The exact reason why the fans were so hostile may never be known as there are several schools of thought but the interest in the handling of the event by the WWE was huge.
- Is this the main event to save WrestleMania XXXI?
- WWE Superstars offer some strange advice to the New England Patriots
- WWE legend makes shock WrestleMania statement
Everyone was wondering what was going to happen on RAW and since the show never took place, we got treated to a face to face confrontation between Reigns and current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar.
The segment was mostly well received which meant by the time the live show of Smackdown came around, the WWE Universe was a bit more appeased than on Sunday night.
When COO Triple H came to the ring, he reminded everyone of the events of Sunday and once again, boos reverberated around the arena.
Triple H's plan?
After the crowd gave him the perfect response by repeating the boos of Sunday night, Triple H gave us an ominous warning.
"Monday night I am going to make an announcement that will likely shake the WWE Universe to its core."
What Triple H's announcement is is anybody's guess but the WWE COO also made another big claim.
"Monday night on RAW, I am going to put an end to the controversy."
All eyes will now be on the Authority on Monday night as they will clearly deliver the plan that Mr McMahon and the WWE creative team have come up with to turn the situation around.
