The much-anticipated Elimination Chamber main event contested at the pay-per-view, Elimination Chambers 2018 on February 25, 2018 at T-Mobile Arena in Nevada, saw veteran John Cena along with six other WWE Superstars including The Miz, Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Elias, Seth Rollins and Finn Balor compete for a chance to face Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34. As expected, Strowman dominated most part of the match and rightly so because of his agility in the ring and dominating physique. He eliminated The Miz, Elias, John Cena, Finn Balor and Seth Rollins – five competitors after delivering his Running Powerslam. However, Roman Reigns decided to stand tall against theMonster Among Men. Strowman and Reigns battled it out to secure a place at the main event at WrestleMania 34. It became a grueling contest as both Reigns and Strowman delivered their best to each other. However, after Stowman crashed into the glass of one of the chambers, giving Reigns an opening to intensify his assault. It took Reigns multiple Superman Punches and Spears before he could silence Strowman and pick the victory. What transpired at WrestleMania 31 on March 29, 2015, when Roman Reigns challenged Brock Lesnar for his WWE World Heavyweight Championship is going to happen again at WrestleMania 34 when Reigns will go up against the WWE Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar, for his title. However, fans did expect Strowman to deliver Reigns the Running Powerslam for the win and headline WrestleMania 34 against Lesnar. Although Reigns faced a mixed reaction after his win, Strowman did take out his frustration when he delivered Reigns with two Running Powerslams and sent him crashing into the glass of the chamber.
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!
