First he was greeted by Chris Jericho, which drew AJ Styles down to the ring, shortly followed by Kevin Owens who would be imitated by Sami Zayn.

The four men would then brawl, leading to Shane McMahon making a Fatal 4-way match to decide Reigns' new number one contender.

Before the match however, Owens would attack Zayn backstage and take away his opportunity to compete in the match and he would be replaced by the returning Cesaro.

The four would put on a great match to end RAW with the Phenomenal one emerging victorious and earning a future clash with Reigns.

It now looks like Styles will face Reigns at Payback in a clash that will bring together the current biggest heel in the company and the biggest face.

Reigns was greeted by a chorus of boos when he came to the ring tonight, but if they thought that was bad, it will be interesting to see how loud the boos are if he beats Styles.

New landscape

RAW brought a lot of new faces to the roster with the return of Cesaro and debuts of NXT stars like Apollo Crews and Baron Corbin.

Over the coming weeks, it will be interesting to see where they all fit in on the main roster, and of course, how many of them will appear on NXT again.
