It’s been a while since we saw the Shield together but since all three members are on Raw and babyfaces we knew they would reunite in some fashion eventually. Seth Rollins might have rocked his old buddies with a steel chair to become the face of The Authority but it appears as though The Architect’s sins have been forgiven.
Dean Ambrose has been dealing with Miz for a while now. The A-Lister is a thorn in The Lunatic Finge’s side and the opposite is also true, to put it mildly. Now that they’re on Raw coming over on the same Superstar Shake-up Miz and Dean seemed to pick up right where they left off.
The Intercontinental Title is in play as well so it adds an importance to the feud. But when The Miz added Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel as the Miztourage it upped the ante. Seth Rollins helped his old friend out with the Miztourage even though Dean said there will be no Shield reunion. But of course, since he said there won’t be a Shield reunion that probably means there will be one.
Dave Meltzer wrote in the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the plan for SummerSlam is likely to be for Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to team up against Miz and Curtis Axel and/or Bo Dallas in a 2 vs 2 (or 3) match.
With Roman Reigns probably involved elsewhere on the card it won’t be a full-fledged Shield reunion, but 2 out of 3 isn’t bad.
