Raw starts with Seth Rollins making his way to the ring. He introduced the two men who chose to live on the right side of history, The AOP. Rollins claimed when he made his debut, he was labeled the future. It's wasn't just two people that thought he was the future; it was everyone that said it. All of a sudden, the mood changed, and people started to question his leadership.
