WWE RAW on Monday night, for the first time in a long time, left us hanging with one of the biggest swerves ever. Prior to the scheduled main event between Roman Reigns and Randy Orton, Seth Rollins turned his back on the Shield after 18 months together and joining Evolution.
Again, it’s been a while since an episode of RAW left everyone talking, and that includes some of the biggest names in the business.
Just shortly after it happened, Stone Cold Steve Austin chimed in with his thoughts.

Austin has readily admitted previously that he doesn’t exactly watch the product religiously, so that says something that he went back to watch it unfold.
On Tuesday, Austin’s longtime friend and legendary broadcaster Jim Ross also chimed in with his thoughts on his blog, and he seems to be thinking what a lot of other people are.
“Raw was an o.k. show with a hot ending. Therefore the thing that most people will take away from the broadcast was Seth Rollins turning his back on Ambrose and Reigns and apparently aligning himself with HHH and Randy Orton. Or did he?
I always thought that Dean Ambrose was the natural heel of the Shield but I’ve got no issues with Seth Rollins doing the dirty deed even though in a perfect world I would have preferred that the Shield stay together a little longer. Apparently, WWE felt compelled to re-shuffle the deck which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I’d assume that several dominoes will fall as time moves forward and the company prepares for a major push to Summer Slam. In other words, I’d assume that multiple cards are up in the air and won’t land on the table until August.”
Whether you liked the angle or not, it got people talking, and in the end, that’s what matters the most.
