A.J. Styles teamed up with Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns in the main event of Monday Night Raw in Montreal, where they defeated Bobby Lashley, Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre - but perhaps the best part of the came went the show went off air.
Pat Laprade of TVS Sports was present for Raw at the Bell Centre. After the show, he tweeted out a photo of Dean Ambrose standing in the ring with his two Shield counterparts - offering major praise for the passionate fans in Canada.
SR put over RR and said he wanted to bring somebody else, but that person didn’t want to. He told him he had no choice since his wife is Canadian. DA showed up, huge pop, said WWE comes to Canada so often cause of the crowd. He ended with « Merci beaucoup, Montreal » #AfterRaw pic.twitter.com/AF1ivh1YBW— Pat Laprade (@PatLaprade) April 16, 2019
The episode itself was one of the most exciting in recent memory, with Styles - the long-time face of SmackDown Live - moving over to the Raw brand. He was joined by the likes of The Miz, Naomi, The Usos and Rey Mysterio.
It was widely believed that Ambrose had made his final appearance with WWE last week, being on the wrong end of an attack from Bobby Lashley. But the former WWE Champion isn't done with the company just yet.
Before Raw aired, WWE announced that Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins would team up in "The Shield's Last Chapter." The trio will compete in a match this Sunday, and it'll be aired on WWE Network. The opponents have not been revealed yet, although Corbin, MacIntyre and Lashley are the likely options.
Ambrose decided not to sign a new contract with WWE, as first reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet. Shortly after, WWE confirmed in a statement that he would be leaving the company once is deal ran up. Slice Wrestling reported that AEW is offering Ambrose $6 million a year, so it's not hard to guess where his next stop might be - unless a different company offers something better.
What This Means
It was a classy gesture from Ambrose to thank the fans in Montreal, He continues to waste no time in thanking the WWE Universe for their support. And as it turns out, Ambrose isn't done with the WWE just yet. The company had teased multiple times that he made his final appearance with them. But this time, fans know that The Shield's last match is on Sunday.
