The Shield reunites! Will they bring some attitude back into the WWE? We hope so!

It was a night on Monday Night RAW when one of the most memorable reunions took place. The WWE Universe do remember when Triple H and Shawn Michaels joined forces to reform D-Generataion X in June 2006. However, later down the road when The Shield with its members Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose made their presence felt in the WWE, they emerged as the Hounds of Justice. Later, Triple H implemented his Plan B to compel Seth Rollins to turn against his team and join The Authority, comprising Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Kane. Over the next few years all three Shield Members would enjoy a singles run with all three becoming WWE World Heavyweight Champion at one time or another. Of late,  rumors were spreading that The Shield may reunite with Seth Rollins ending all differences with Reigns and Ambrose. On the October 9, 2017 episode of RAW as the WWE Intercontinental Champion, The MIZ was addressing the WWE Universe along with his The Miztourage, Roman Reigns came out followed by Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. The three former Shield members destroyed the The Miztourage along with Sheamus and Cesaro. After Ambrose planted The Miz with the Dirty Deeds, Reigns, Ambrose and Rollins delivered the Triple Powerbomb to The Miz before joining their fists that The Shield has certainly reunited.

Later during the night, The Shield emerged again wearing similar gear and attacked Braun Strowman. Reigns hit a devastating Spear to the Monster Among Men before The Shield delivered the Triple Powerbomb to Braun Strowman crashing him through the announcers table. It was an epic moment, perhaps the best to witness in recent memory. After the reuniting of DX in 2006 and the return of The Hardy Boyz at WrestleMania 33 in June 2017, the reuniting of The Shield is perhaps the moment that will reshape the landscape of the WWE. One wonders if, akin to Evolution back in 2003-04, The Shield members too will hold a title belt each and become one of the dominating force in the WWE today. I would personally like to watch The Shield raise havoc, win matches and titles and bring some attitude back in the WWE. Now that The Architect, Seth Rollins; The Big Dog, Roman Reigns and The Lunatic Fringe, Dean Ambrose are on the same page, the WWE Tag Team Division may not be the same again!

Since the breakup of The Shield in June 2014, Seth Rollins became a heel character when he joined The Authority. The Hounds of Justice, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Rollins, were not seen together again. All three members of The Shield went on to become the WWE Champions. However, with Roman Reigns busy with his scuffle with Braun Strowman, it seems Ambrose and Rollins are trying to come on the same page. Recently, Rollins rejected Ambrose’s invitation to join his hands to make a team. On RAW’s episode of August 14, 2017, Ambrose again asked Rollins to team up. The verbal confrontation became physical when both Superstars attacked each other. They were interrupted by the WWE RAW Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Sheamus. The Champions overpowered Ambrose and Rollins however, the former Shield members regrouped to take over the Champions and throw them out of the ring. Moments later as the WWE Universe began its “Yes Chants”, Ambrose and Rollins bumped their fists, signaling the reunion of Ambrose and Rollins. The moment was somewhat akin to when Triple H and Shawm Michaels rejoined to bring D-GenerationX back into the WWE in 2007.Now that Ambrose and Rollins are back again, the WWE Universe will see more high flying, robust, aggressive action in and outside of the ring. Definitely, these two will take the WWE tag team division into another era, hopefully. We will have to see at what time Roman Reigns decides to join Ambrose and Rollins. However, it is too early to say if The Shield will be reborn.

It is reported and confirmed that at SummerSlam 2017, on August 20, 2017, Cesaro and Sheamus wil be defending their RAW Tag Team Championship title against Ambrose and Rollins. Will the team of The Lunatic Fringe and The Architect work in unison to beat the Champs or will the WWE Universe have to wait until they see Ambrose and Rollins wearing the Tag Team belts around their waists? In any case, their SummerSlam encounter will be a must watch!
