Tonight's episode of RAW ended on quite a confusing note with the WWE Championship match between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose ending in what seemed like a no contest.

The two former Shield members were the main event on RAW ahead of this Sunday's Battleground event when they will be joined by their third Shield brother Roman Reigns.

Long awaited battle

The three former Shield members will battle for the title on Sunday, but when Ambrose and Rollins went one on one tonight, there was a lot of controversy which saw Rollins lift the title as the show went off the air.

The two put on an entertaining match with a somewhat twist ending as Rollins met Ambrose on the top rope before the reigning champion pushed him off and into the referee.

While the referee was down, Rollins would deliver a super-plex from the top rope and hold onto Ambrose in a pinning position.

The referee would count the three count before chaos and confusion ensued.

The referee counted the three count but both men's shoulders were on the mat meaning that technically, both men were pinned.

With the new RAW and Smackdown commissioners at ringside, Stephanie McMahon would declare Rollins the new champion while Shane fiercely protested.

The show went off the air with Rollins hoisting the belt but continued on the WWE Network where the decision was made that Ambrose was still the Champion.

In the wake of the result, Ambrose was just as frustrated as Rollins but delivered Dirty Deeds to his challenger before leaving with his title belt.

All change

Tomorrow will see the WWE get shaken up to dramatic proportions as Smackdown not only joins RAW as a live broadcast, but the WWE Draft will once again take place.

With champions and friends alike set to be separated, it is sure to be filled with twists and turns - just a few nights before Battleground.

While Battleground won't really feel the ramifications of the Draft, Summer Slam next month certainly will and who knows how the WWE will look in one months time.
