Identity of Seth Rollins Referee Disciple, New AJ Styles Feud

Identity of Seth Rollins Referee Disciple, New AJ Styles Feud
- WWE appeared to start a feud tonight between Aleister Black and AJ Styles.

Tonight's RAW saw The OC attack Black and beat him down during a backstage segment. Black then defeated Erick Rowan in a close battle, which was a rematch from last week's RAW. Black also won that match. After this week's win over Rowan, Black declared that they will fight next week. WWE later confirmed Black vs. Styles for next Monday's RAW from Brooklyn at the Barclays Center.

Its not known if this is something just short term as Styles is reportedly scheduled to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania this year.

- As seen below, RAW main event saw Randy Orton defeat Kevin Owens thanks to a fast, if not botched, count by a referee who was later revealed to be one of the disciples following "The Monday Night Messiah" Seth Rollins. The show ended with Owens destroying the referee and putting him through a table as Rollins watched from the stage.

The referee was Jake Clemons, who can be found on social media at @ClemonsJake. Jake, who was wearing a Rollins t-shirt under his referee gear, does referee work for EVOLVE Smash Wrestling, and Absolute Intense Wrestling (AIW), among others.
