WWE gave fans 'dream matchup' after RAW went off air

Football News

Last night's episode of RAW certainly had its fair share of eye-catching moments.

From AJ Styles being peer-pressured by John Cena into a contract signing that ruled out The Club for their match at Money in the Bank, to the former Shield members' 'reunion' ending in a three-man brawl, there was plenty for the watching fans to discuss.

It was events after the show went off air, however, that may have provided the best in-ring action of the night. As various reports - and the below video footage - show, the quartet of AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, John Cena and Roman Reigns took part in what many would consider to be a 'dream matchup'.

As reported by Wrestling Inc. the dark match pitted the two indy darlings, Rollins and Styles, against the current and likely future faces of the WWE; Cena and Reigns.

Video footage provided by one fan in attendance at the Smoothie King Center, New Orleans offers a glimpse of arguably the four biggest Superstars in the WWE right now going at it:

For those lucky enough to watch the non-storyline fight, it was also one of the first chances to see Rollins and Cena in in-ring action since their respective comebacks from long-term injuries.

The Architect has worked live events in recent weeks, and Cena was reportedly involved in a dark match at last week's RAW too.

Monday night's match, though, in which both went up against their respective Money in the Bank opponents, was a key stepping stone towards what will surely be two must-watch matches at this weekend's pay-per-view.

It is particularly good news for Cena who is said to have worked the majority of the match.

As for the result of the NOLA clash, Reigns and Cena came out on top courtesy of a disqualification victory after The Club, who had been sent backstage before the bell, returned to interfere.

The match certainly sounds like it was a class above the usual dark matches and will make a lot of WWE fans envious.

Whether the WWE Universe as a whole will ever get to see a Cena/Reigns vs Styles/Rollins feud ever materialise on WWE TV itself, is unlikely at this stage.

It would definitely bring the house down if it were to happen but the egos and star power involved is too much to risk on one storyline.
