AJ Styles became Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins’ mystery partner on WWE Raw on Monday night as the Shield brothers squared off against Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin in a blistering six-man main event.
The Super Shake-up has always been a chaotic one with athletes moving from one brand to another. But AJ Styles’ arrival on Raw was something of a stunner. He had made himself into a WWE legend at the blue brand and it is safe to say that SmackDown LIVE is the house that AJ Styles built. But he moved focus and bases to the red brand and joined forces with Universal Champion Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns as their mystery partner against Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin & Bobby Lashley, outfoxing anyone and everyone to such a degree that it took an illicit Claymore from McIntyre to slow him down.
The interference brought about a frantic scramble in the match’s closing moments, but Rollins & Reigns were ready to bail Styles out after he was leveled by Lashley. The Universal Champion Stomped The All Mighty as he attempted the pinfall, Reigns followed up with a bone-rattling Spear, and Styles finished things off with a swooping Phenomenal Forearm to pin Lashley.
