WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW - JUNE 27, 2016
Welcome to Monday Night Raw and tonight Raw is coming to us live from Tampa, Florida and we kick things off with Seth Rollins making his way out to the ring
Rollins says at Battleground everyone will finally get the match they wanted to see. All three members of The Shield in a triple threat match for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Rollins then talks about Roman Reigns and Reigns' mistake embarasses Rollins and makes him look bad because as The Architect of The Shield he brought Roman Reigns into the fold. And then Reigns puts up the statement Reigns posted on his twitter account regarding his violation of the Wellness Policy
Rollins breaks the tweet down starting with Reigns' apology and ending with Reigns saying he owned it. Rollins says he owns Reigns, he owned Reigns at Wrestlemania and Money In The Bank and Reigns doesn't deserve to be in the main event of Battleground and should be taken out and it should be a one on one championship match
The WWE Champion makes his way out to the ring. Ambrose asks Rollins if he's alright and what this is really about. If it's about Roman Reigns or about Ambrose being WWE Champion. Reigns made a mistake, everyone makes mistakes he was friends with Rollins that was a mistake. AJ Styles then makes his way out
Styles agrees it should remain a triple threat. Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins vs AJ Styles. He's the guy who beat John Cena in a dream match so take out Roman Reigns, put him in there and all will be right with the world. Ambrose says he's pretty sure Reigns is still in the match. Styles then suggests they make it a Fatal Four Way
Rollins says it should be a one on one match. John Cena is out next saying Dean Ambrose is a fighting champion who will fight a friend, foe, fraud but will he fight the franchise and brings up his 15 championship reigns and how it was this very day he had his first match in WWE so today is his WWE birthday.
All the arguing brings out Stephanie and she says she has a solution to their problems. Stephanie says what Reigns did was embarassing however having Ambrose as champion is mortifying. Shane isn't at Raw, again, so she's going to make the decision that tonight Rollins faces John Cena one on one and AJ styles faces WWE Champion Dean Ambrose and if Cena and Styles win their matches then they will be added to the match at Battleground
