The Shield is back together! Finally! We think!
At least WWE seems to think so, because they have advertised a huge match for Monday night’s edition of Raw. We noted last week that Roman Reigns was cleared to return after dealing with a serious case of the mumps illness over the last month. That illness caused Reigns to miss WWE’s original Shield reunion plans at TLC because Reigns was replaced on that card by Kurt Angle. That match was a 3 on 5 match with Angle getting the win for the team.
On this week’s Raw, The Shield trio of Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose will team up to face their rivals including Intercontinental Champion The Miz and new Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Sheamus. I say new because on last week’s Raw, Cesaro and Sheamus won back the Raw Tag Team Titles from Rollins and Ambrose due to a distraction from The New Day.
Speaking of The New Day, it’s also expected that tonight on Raw there will be an announcement for a big six man tag match at Survivor Series that will see The Shield take on The New Day. There have been reports online that The New Day are expected to be at Raw tonight (per Wrestling Observer) while The Shield trio may be at Smackdown as well.
As for this match on Raw, it would be a big surprise if The Shield didn’t get the win in this match. Their return has been built up for several months and Reigns was sidetracked for a few weeks, so they should come back looking as strong as ever with a big win over Miz, Cesaro and Sheamus.
Reigns spent his Saturday at Georgia Tech’s football game and the team posted a picture of him with his daughter, watching his old alma mater play. Raw is in Atlanta tonight, which is close to Georgia Tech.
