WWE shook things up on Raw tonight, as Roman Reigns defeated Sheamus in the main event to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
The match was set up by Vince McMahon, making his first WWE TV appearance in over a year. Mr. McMahon made the match with the stipulation that if Reigns didn’t win the title, he would be fired.
I think this is a good hot shot. Smart bookers throughout history have known when to hot shot in order to get their territory hot, but then knew when to slow things down so they didn’t burn the fans out. WWE has been so cold this year it was smart to finally do something huge and unexpected.
Now let’s just hope they can follow up.
