Monday’s Raw went off the air with Roman Reigns celebrating alone with the WWE Title after conquering Sheamus, Vince McMahon, and The Authority.

After Raw went off the air, Reigns’s runningmates, The Usos and new IC champion Dean Ambrose, spilled into the ring to celebrate with Reigns. WWE chose not to air this on Raw, which would have reinforced that a top babyface actually has loyal friends. (Video on WWE’s website)

Meanwhile, down at ringside, Mr. McMahon was shown recovering from a Superman Punch and stunned to see Reigns holding his title belt.

Reigns, Usos, and Ambrose continued to celebrate in the ring, including Reigns being hoisted in the air as he held the title belt.

It brought the events of the last two days full circle. On Sunday, the TLC PPV main event ended with League of Nations members Rusev and U.S. champion Alberto Del Rio hoisting Sheamus in the air to celebrate victory over Reigns. Reigns then speared and attacked Sheamus, went off on Triple H, and set the stage for finding a way to the WWE Title the next night on Raw.
