Tonight saw the first episode of Monday Night RAW since last week's Draft and it certainly set the bar for change as the whole show has undergone a make over.

One of the biggest questions heading into tonight's show was with the WWE Championship going to Smackdown, what will RAW do without a title?

A long awaited feud

The answer was given quite early in the show as RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and General Manager Mick Foley made the huge announcement.

Looking ahead to next month's Summer Slam event, they made the big reveal that there will be a new title unveiled in RAW's main event that night.

Confirming that Seth Rollins will be one of the men to compete for the new WWE Universal Championship, they set up one of the biggest shocks in RAW history.

The duo in charge of the WWE's flagship show announced that Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Roman Reigns, Finn Balor, Sheamus, Cesaro, Rusev and Chris Jericho would all compete for the right to face Rollins.

Reigns and Balor would win their respective fatal four way matches leading to an interesting main event match.

The two squared off in a great match but contrary to what many people would have expected, Balor was the man to come out on top.

We will now see a match that fans have hoped for for a long time as the first ever NXT Champion will take on the longest reigning NXT Champion.

It is a huge push for Balor who goes straight into the main event and has instantly become one of the smartest moves made in last week's draft.

All change on RAW

Everything was different on RAW tonight as it debuted a new stage, new theme song, new opening credits and even a new location for the announce team.

There were debuts from NXT stars and a return for Neville, but the biggest change certainly came from the Women's division.

Charlotte and Sasha Banks went head to head for the title and Banks was able to overcome the long reigning champion.
