Not so fast? Monday Night Raw is coming up on thirty years of weekly wrestling television and that is quite the accomplishment. The show has had all kinds of moments throughout its history, some of which have been more memorable than others. There have also been several stories that start up and are then dropped, which seems to have been the case again this week.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: BREAKING: Surprise Title Change Takes Place In NXT Main Event

The main event of this week’s Monday Night Raw saw Seth Rollins defeat Bobby Lashley to become #1 contender for the United States Title. The referee was bumped during the match though, meaning Lashley was unable to pin a downed Rollins. Following the match, Adam Pearce fired Lashley to end the show. Pearce has since posted a video to Twitter, saying that Lashley is not fired but there will be repercussions for his actions. The two will meet later this week to see how they can work together.

It was a quick announcement. Check out the match, the firing, and the fallout:

Opinion: I’m curious to see where this is going, as it certainly comes off as quite the jarring change of pace. Lashley not being fired is an interesting way to go, though at worst he was going to head over to SmackDown. Odds are this is going to end up being some kind of a major storyline and that could make for several weeks of fun moments over the next few weeks on Monday Night Raw.
