Some WWE fans noticed a major plot-hole in The Shield's 'arrest' storyline on Raw

Last nights Monday Night Raw opened with a confrontation between The Shield and the newly-formed faction of Braun Strowman, Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler.

Strowman turned to the pair the previous week following Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins preventing the 'Monster Among Men' from cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

The locker room spilled out to prevent a mass brawl as The Shield made their way through the crowd, but they couldn't be stopped.

After the six men were pulled apart as Raw went to an advertisement break, The Shield were actually arrested as part of the storyline and taken away from the arena.

The 'Hounds of Justice' returned to Raw though just as Strowman, Ziggler and McIntyre were about to mimick the group and triple powerbomb Finn Balor - and they returned in the same police van than they were carted away in.

Unfortunately though, the heel superstars in the locker room launched a sneak attack on the trio, leaving them prone for the dangerous threesome to strike.

WWE broadcaster Mike Rome tweeted updates on The Shield's 'case' throughout the night, eventually stating they had been granted bail by a judge.

But some very smart fans and reporters picked up on some crucial information that - in reality - wouldn't make a whole lot of sense.

Rome stated in a tweet that the three men appeared in-front of a judge and had been 'formally arraigned'.

However September 3 was Labor Day, a public holiday in the United States, meaning judges would not be working and The Shield would not have been seen.

A tweet from @GIFSkull summed it up perfectly.

Even though it's not real, WWE fans don't like their intelligence being insulted, and it seems that many people picked up on the creative error.

The fans are always one step ahead of you, Vince...
