It’s Shield night as WWE isn’t exactly being subtle with this one. Last week we saw the trio standing in the same room and basically saying they were getting back together, though the question is how long they’ll be able to keep this going. Your trivia for the night: the team debuted in Indianapolis, split in Indianapolis and seems to be reuniting in Indianapolis. I don’t know if WWE did that on purpose but well done if they did. Let’s get to it.

Reunited! For weeks, fans have wondered if The Shield would get back together. The Miz and his Miztourage have been making light on how destructive the Shield was. On last week’s Raw, all three members of The Shield had contact with Miz, Miztourage and The Bar (Cesaro and Sheamus). At the end of the show, the WWE Universe saw Roman Reigns sitting alone backstage and both Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose walk up. Can The Shield put aside past differences and unite as one unite? Here’s how WWE.com says it all went down.

They’re Bravo-Alpha-Charlie-Kilo. Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns didn’t just reunite in earnest for the first time in three years to crash “Miz TV,” they showed they haven’t lost a step, despite the lengthy layoff.

While The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus and Curtis Axel (Bo Dallas was recuperating) crowed over beating the brothers-in-arms down last week (The Bar and Axel received Mizzies for their assistance), The Hounds of Justice showed that Miz might have been off the mark when he insisted their time had passed them by. In fact, the three former WWE Champions responded to The A-Lister’s boasts by circling the ring and administering a beatdown straight out of The Shield’s greatest hits, laying out all four Superstars and sealing the reunion with a ring-shaking Triple Powerbomb to The Awesome One and a fist-bump over his prone body.

And, as it turns out, The Miz might have gotten even more than he bargained for, as Raw General Manager Kurt Angle decided to give the Intercontinental Champion the spotlight he craved by placing him and The Bar in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match against The Shield at WWE TLC. As Much as Miz seemed as though he couldn’t believe it, The Olympic Hero assured him: It’s true.

Braun Strowman’s monstrous tear through the roster continued at the expense of Matt Hardy, who had the unfortunate task of facing The Monster Among Men one-on-one, but The Gift of Destruction went from hunter to hunted in the blink of an eye when The Shield came knocking.

Hardy turned in a gritty, turn-back-the-clock effort against Strowman that saw him land a Twist of Fate, only Strowman to kick out at one, retorting with two chokeslams and a Running Powerslam for the win. After the match, Strowman looked primed to put Hardy through the LED screen a la Curt Hawkins, but he was quickly interrupted by The Hounds of Justice, who met him on the stage, overwhelmed the monster and plunged him through the announce table with an incredible Triple Powerbomb

But The Gift of Destruction’s fate will remain entwined with The Shield’s for the foreseeable future. Not only did Kurt Angle sanction Strowman vs. Reigns in a Steel Cage next week, but Ambrose’s offhanded remark that The Shield could take out four or five opponents at once were noted by The Miz, who recruited The Monster Among Men to be that very same fourth man at WWE TLC.

The Shield has returned! Much to the elation of the WWE Universe, Roman Reigns has reunited with Raw Tag Team Champions Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins to wage war against the overwhelming quartet of Braun Strowman, Intercontinental Champion The Miz, Cesaro & Sheamus in a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match at WWE TLC.

Though Reigns’ insisted he was on a different path from his former Shield brethren, the rumors began to run wild as to whether the fans were destined to see The Hounds of Justice together again, especially after Ambrose and Rollins put their turbulent history aside and captured the Raw Tag Team Titles from Sheamus and Cesaro.

While The Lunatic Fringe and The Kingslayer were busy duking it out with The Swiss Cyborg and The Celtic Warrior over the illustrious tag titles, The Miz was poking a stick at The Big Dog in his unrelenting search for respect. Eventually, “The Bar” aligned with The A-Lister to execute a brutal 3-on-1 beatdown on Reigns. The trio even tempted fate when they culminated their attack with a Shield-signature Triple Powerbomb and mocked the brothers-in-arms by putting their fists together a la The Hounds of Justice.

However, the ridicule turned serious in a hurry when the reunited Reigns, Ambrose and Rollins interrupted “Miz TV” one week later and unleashed a major counter-offensive of their own.

In the wake of the chaos, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle made the Six-Man Tag Team Match, and we are off to the races. However, when Miz pointed out Ambrose’s earlier boast that The Shield could take on four or five guys, Angle agreed to let The A-Lister try to secure a fourth member for his team. Instead of a man, though, the fourth combatant turned out to be a Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman.

A longstanding adversary to Reigns, Strowman also recently defeated Ambrose and Rollins, respectively. The massive Superstar literally tips the scales in favor of Miz, Cesaro and Sheamus in a big bad way. Together, the nearly insurmountable combination may prove cataphoric to the reunification of The Shield.

Don’t miss a moment of the action at WWE TLC, Sunday, Oct. 22, at 8 ET/5 PT, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network.

Emperor Uncrowned! Roman Reigns has been dealing with several thorns as of late. The Miztourage. The Miz and Miztourage think that they are The New Shield. Last week Roman Reigns was granted a shot for the Intercontinental Championship. Roman knows that he will have to disable The Miztourage first. Did Roman Reigns get crowned or did The Miztourage find a way to tear down the Empire? After the match, The Miztourage began to assault and take down Roman Reigns. After Raw went off air, Roman was seen nursing his injuries in the locker room. He was then visited by the tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. Nothing was said between the three, so that leaves us to wonder have The Shield reunited? Here is what WWE.com had to say about tonight’s match.

The Miz has demanded respect for months now, but the Intercontinental Champion aping The Shield with his squad might have been a bridge too far. After he and The Miztourage mimicked The Shield’s entrance through the crowd (one week after doing the fist bump, mind you) before his title match with Roman Reigns, The Big Dog snapped, obliterating Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel with a steel chair before the match could start.

Miz, impressively, nearly finagled his way to a count-out win in the ensuing title bout, even reversing the Superman Punch into a Skull-Crushing Finale, but Reigns would not be denied. He kicked out of Miz’s big move and clocked him with a Superman Punch, but Cesaro & Sheamus quickly interfered before Reigns could uncork a Spear on The A-Lister.

“The Bar” — whom Reigns had less-than-flattering words for after their beatdown of his old allies Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins — worked in perfect sync with Miz to decimate Reigns, feeding him into each other’s signature moves (Neutralizer, Brogue Kick, Skull-Crushing Finale) before administering The Shield’s final signature, the Triple Powerbomb, to Reigns.

Ironically, while Reigns licked his wounds at the very end of Raw, he received a pointed visit from Ambrose and Rollins, who wordlessly stood by The Big Dog’s side in solidarity. The Miz has been asking all along if The Shield could hang with today’s WWE, three years after they imploded. He might get his answer yet.

After Roman Reigns suffered a 3-on-1 beatdown at the hands of Intercontinental Champion The Miz, Cesaro & Sheamus, he received a visit from Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose, marking the first time the former members of The Shield have stood united in three years. Have The Hounds of Justice returned?

THE PASSING OF THE TORCH! As the WWE Universe still tries to get over the passing of the torch between John Cena & Roman Reigns, The Miz has issues with Roman being called “The Guy” and “The Big Dog”. He invites Reigns onto ‘MizTV’ to get answers. What went down during the interview and will Roman Reigns hold on to the torch that was just bestowed upon him. Check out what happened when “The Big Dog” and the “A-lister” came face to face. Here is a full recap of what happened per WWE.com!

Roman Reigns beat John Cena last night at WWE No Mercy and announced on “Miz TV” that he’s looking for a fight with Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship, but The Miz wasn’t interested in talking about that. In fact, Miz quickly turned the focus of their much-hyped interview toward himself, reminding Reigns that Miz was the only one of the two with a title to his name after The Big Dog called him an “idiot” minutes into their sit-down.

Miz didn’t take that kindly, of course, and if the most head-turning of his subsequent insults was a schoolyard boast that The Miztourage could have taken The Shield back in the day, it was his insistence on waving his title in Reigns’ face that came back to haunt him when The Big Dog offered to fight him on the spot.

The Awesome One attempted to back out with an impressive array of excuses (“I have a suit on!”), though Raw General Manager Kurt Angle hit the scene to sanction a match tonight between the two, as well as a tag team match between the rest of The Miztourage and the makeshift squad of Matt Hardy & Jason Jordan.

Could The Miztourage have beaten The Shield? They certainly proved to be the difference maker when Roman Reigns took on The Miz by his lonesome, picking at The Big Dog behind the referee’s back and allowing the Intercontinental Champion to make a profound statement at Reigns’ expense — even if he didn’t necessarily walk away with the win.

In fact, Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel softened Reigns up for The Miz each time The Big Dog pulled into the lead, while Miz himself focused his efforts on Reigns’ banged-up lower back. A double Drive-By took out Dallas & Axel and finally left Miz open to a match-ending Spear, but The Miztourage returned moments later to utterly decimate Reigns with steel chairs and feed him into two Skull-Crushing Finales, the second on top of a chair. Miz kept the assault going for minutes on end, but the final insult came when the three A-listers mocked Reigns with the classic Shield fist bump to conclude a brutal display that, only a few years ago, you would have had to see to believe.

RESPECT HAS BEEN EARNED! As the rivalry between Roman Reigns and John Cena reached a boiling point, the historical WrestleMania worthy match would soon prove who was the best at trash talking and bringing the fight. The rivalry between the two started as a back and forth war of words on Twitter. It soon escalated when the two met in the ring for the first time when John Cena, who is a free agent, showed up on Monday Night Raw. Roman Reigns would soon prove that he can trash talk and let his in-ring ability speak for itself. Reigns silenced Cena with a Spear to earn the long lost respect of John Cena, but in the end, respect was earned on both sides. Roman remains THE BIG DOG of his yard. Here is how it all unfolded courtesy of WWE.com.

If you were scoring the John Cena-Roman Reigns rivalry on how the two talked against each other, you’d be hard-pressed to argue that Cena didn’t get the win. But talk only gets you so far, and it was Reigns who walked out of WWE No Mercyas the victor of a WrestleMania-caliber match between WWE’s two most commanding and divisive Superstars.

Cena had said earlier that he thought No Mercy would be a “cakewalk,” and he appeared all too happy to play to the WWE Universe rather than take Reigns seriously, even offering to leave the match entirely when they voiced their displeasure for both Superstars. That earned him a less-than-favorable response from Reigns, who tossed Cena into the steel steps, stalked him around the ring and delivered a pinpoint Drive-By when Cena attempted to stagger to his feet.

The 16-time World Champion didn’t just get stuck in the blocks; he seemed completely unprepared for Reigns’ answers to his maneuvers — that trip into the steps brought him to his knees, and Reigns wiped the ear-to-ear grin off Cena’s face with a jaw-shattering right hand as he attempted to hit his notorious “Five Moves of Doom.” Yet, as he always does, Cena did eventually rally to hit his big maneuvers, including the Five-Knuckle Shuffle, an STF and a reversal of the Superman Punch into an Attitude Adjustment.\

Neither put Reigns down (he shook off the Shuffle, reversed the STF into a one-armed powerbomb, and kicked out of the AA at two), but both Superstars quickly learned that each of them were as advertised as they began to unload their respective match-enders. Cena kicked out of a Superman Punch and olé’d Reigns full-speed into the turnbuckle when The Big Dog attempted a Spear, but Reigns also kicked out of the near-bulletproof second-rope AA.

It was at this point that Cena tapped into his old reserves of ruthless aggression, but Reigns’ persistence didn’t just surprise him, it nearly broke him. First, Reigns reversed Cena’s attempt of an AA through the announce table by spearing Cena through the desk that had been meant for him, and then his kick-out of two consecutive AA’s unnerved Cena so much that the typically stoic Superstar went nose-to-nose with referee John Cone over the count. Ultimately, Reigns had one more ounce in the tank left than Cena did, as the 16-time World Champion walked straight into a quick-strike Superman Punch-Spear combo out of nowhere moments later, leading to the most precious three-count of Reigns’ young career.

It was what happened afterward, though, that may truly define this contest for years to come. Cena raised Reigns’ hand in a gesture of respect and received a nod of his own from The Big Dog, yet The Cenation Leader remained in the ring while Reigns made his exit. Once Roman had left, Cena rose to his feet and bowed to the audience to the tune of a standing ovation and a “Thank You Cena” chant. So now, he’s got Reigns’ respect. He may not have wanted it, but he’s got it. The WWE Universe’s too, though it’s fair to say he may have always had that after all.

We go to the ring and out comes Roman Reigns to a mixed reactions.

Reigns stops and takes in all the noise. Reigns gives John Cena props as being one of the best talkers but says sometimes he says stupid shit, like that Reigns tries to be the next Cena. Reigns says he doesn’t look like a jacked up white guy with a buzzcut because if he did he wouldn’t have a career here. If you don’t believe him, ask Alex Riley. Reigns goes on and calls Cena the biggest hypocrite to step in a WWE ring and if you don’t believe him, Cena will tell you himself. Reigns shows us footage from February 2012 with Cena dissing The Rock for being a part-timer for Hollywood.

Reigns asks the crowd if we should bring Cena out. He tells them to get louder. He’s afraid that won’t be loud enough because Cena isn’t here tonight. Reigns says No Mercy will be just like that WrestleMania but it will be a different Samoan beating Cena. Reigns goes on and drops the mic after knocking Cena for being a movie star. Reigns greets some fans at ringside before making his way up the ramp.

After the match, Reigns recovers as his music hits and we see Cena backstage watching again. Reigns approaches Jordan in the corner and extends his hand for a shake. They shake and we get another look at Cena backstage. Charly Caruso approaches Cena for comments on the victory. Cena says he has something to say but he’s going to go say it to Reigns’ face. Reigns poses in the corner as we go to commercial.

-Commercial Break-

John Cena and Roman Reigns meet in the ring

Roman Reigns is in the ring waiting, and John Cena’s music hits. The crowd “serenades” him by singing, “John Cena sucks” to the theme of his music. Cena gets in the ring and holds up a microphone. Cena says it’s not a nightstick for his tactical pants. Cena is excited about what he’s going to say. Last week, Reigns was upset that rookie almost beat Cena. Now the rookie, Jason Jordan, almost beat “the guy.” Cena tells him to explain, but keep it to one sentence like, “It’s my yard.” Reigns says he was out here having a great match, something Cena knows nothing about. Reigns says he’s had more great matches in two years than Cena has had in his entire career. Cena loves it. Reigns makes it easy for him. Cena does have to stay sharp – he just has to let Reigns talk. Reigns is burying himself. It’s not to say that Reigns isn’t good. Reigns has skill and ability, but he’s got his head so far up his own ass that he’s like a one-man human centipede. Reigns actually thinks he runs this place and is responsible for the crowd. No one has ever cut Reigns down to size. That’s why he’s here. Cena has been accused of spinning things, but he challenges himself to try anything. Reigns thinks he’s already made it, but the second you think that is the beginning of the end. Cena says Reigns will learn what real failure is all about. Cena gets in his face and says week after week he lets Reigns take shot after shot, but he fails and fails. That is not what THE guy does. THE guy steps up, stays sharp, and does his homework, which is something Reigns should have done before he brought his sorry ass out here. If Reigns really is THE guy, he’ll dust himself off, stand up, and show him something at No Mercy. Cena says Reigns doesn’t have it in him. No Mercy will be a cakewalk.

Cena goes to leave, but Reigns tells him to bring his “bitch ass” back in here. Reigns says usually a superstar calls out John Cena to make a name for themselves, but Cena came here to RAW to call him out. Reigns thinks it’s because he’s selling the tickets Cena hasn’t sold in five years. Cena says Reigns isn’t doing his job, but ticket sales are great, revenue is sky high, and WWE can make it without him. WWE doesn’t need Cena. Cena needs WWE because he can’t break into Hollywood. Reigns says if Cena needs help, he knows a guy (meaning his cousin The Rock). Reigns tells Cena to do his big talk, but it means nothing because he can’t back it up. Cena says when people push you over the line, you have to fight fire with fire. Cena says at No Mercy, Reigns can consider it like a drug test – he’s not getting past him! Cena then walks off while the crowd gasps.

Later on we see Roman Reigns backstage watching the John Cena versus Braun Strowman match.

We see Reigns backstage watching again as Braun mocks Cena with the “you can’t see me” gesture. Charly Caruso approaches Reigns for comments on what just happened. Reigns says The Monster didn’t show Cena any mercy but neither will he. Reigns walks off as we go to replays as Braun continues to stand over Cena.

After the match, Cena stands tall as we go to replays. Cena stands tall and helps Jordan to his feet for a show of respect. Cena hits the corner to pose but the music interrupts and out comes Roman Reigns. Back to commercial.

Back from the break and Reigns is in the ring with Cena. Some fans are chanting Cena’s name. Reigns gets booed as he says he has one question for Cena – if he’s as good as he says he is, why does it take a 16-time champ over 20 minutes to beat a rookie? Reigns says if Cena is as good as he says he is, he would’ve defeated Jordan right away. Reigns goes on and gets the “what!?” treatment from the crowd. Reigns calls Cena a lying, fake ass little bitch. Cena calls Reigns a Debbie Downer and says he’s disgusted by Reigns’ whole face. Cena says Reigns is doing the worst thing a guy like him could try and do right now – use his brain. Cena goes on and points out how Reigns came out with his zipper down. Reigns says he actually busted the zipper because he’s a big dog. Cena says he was just looking for Reigns’ balls but he has none. Cena talks about how Reigns is going to lose at No Mercy.

Cena says the only question Reigns will have after No Mercy is how did this happen. Cena says Reigns is a conceited, know-it-all golden boy that needs to be taught about respect. Cena gives props to guys like Jordan, Chad Gable and The Miz for putting in work each week. He respects that. Cena says he does not respect Reigns. Cena doesn’t respect how Reigns walks down here and calls Cena a fake bitch. The only person living a lie here is Reigns. Cena goes on and wonders if Reigns can see what’s going on here, or does he need to beat some sense into Reigns. Reigns says now they’re talking. He tells Cena to do it, bring it. Fans cheer and a “yes!” chant starts up. Reigns tells Cena to do it right now. Reigns asks if fans want to see Cena beat his ass and they do.

Reigns taunts Cena and says this is Cena’s moment to finally back up his big mouth. Just like Reigns thought, Cena is all talk and that’s why he doesn’t respect Cena. Reigns drops the mic and leaves the ring as his music hits. Cena stares him down with a smirk on his face.

Back from the break and RAW General Manager Kurt Angle is in the ring for a contract signing. He’s here to make official the big match that was announced on WWE’s website earlier today. Angle calls out John Cena to the ring.

Cena says this match is WrestleMania worthy but Angle is ready to get it done now. Cena says this is why he came to RAW, to step in the ring with The Big Dog. Cena says Reigns hasn’t been just the blue chip prospect, he’s been the blue chip prospect that’s been protected against anyone in his path. Cena talks about himself and how there’s no protection there. Cena says he wants to fight Reigns because he knows Reigns doesn’t want to fight him. The music interrupts and out comes Reigns to some boos.

Reigns wants to get this straight – he’s scared to fight Cena? Reigns wonders if that’s what is in Cena’s head. Reigns says Cena probably won’t understand this because no one has ever said this to him but Cena is not as big of a deal as he thinks he is. Reigns says he’s done something Cena will never be able to do – he retired The Undertaker at WrestleMania. Reigns says maybe he just doesn’t need to fight Cena. Cena ends up calling Reigns a corporate Cena bootleg. Cena says Reigns isn’t the guy, he’s just a guy… a guy trying desperately to fill shoes he never will. Cena says listen carefully young man… he’s not The Undertaker, he’s not a battered veteran with a bad hip at the end of his career. Cena is the fastest and strongest he’s ever been. Cena says Reigns knows if he signs that contract, his Roman Empire… can’t see me. Reigns comes back and says fans don’t boo Cena because they want him to be a bad guy, they boo him because he sucks. Cena makes a joke about Angle getting the “you suck” chants and Reigns tells him to shut up. Reigns looks to be searching for words and Cena disses him. Reigns tells him to shut up again. Reigns ends up calling Cena a fake bitch. A part timing, fake bitch.

Reigns goes on about Cena being a part-timer and how he buries younger talents. Reigns says that’s how Cena stays on top of the mountain. Reigns calls him a backstabbing shark. Reigns says what bothers Cena is that he can’t bury Reigns, he can’t touch him. Reigns says he’s the one guy in WWE who Cena can’t see. Reigns asks why he would want to lessen himself, his bloodline and his legacy to be the next John Cena when he could be the one and only Roman Reigns.

Cena says Reigns is a fool, a damn fool. Cena says Reigns of all people comes down to the ring and uses the same poor excuse that the others in front of him have done. Reigns, with all his abilities, has the gall to blame Cena. Cena congratulates Reigns, saying it took him 5 years to cut a half-decent promo but now Cena is about to cut him down to size. Cena says everyone thinks he has a magical golden shovel. Cena can’t tell if Reigns is blind or stupid. Cena says the fans have always held the keys and always will. Cena goes on, mentioning how he won the United States Title and used it to help guys like AJ Styles and Kevin Owens. He says Reigns took the US Title as a demotion. Cena says he’s still here because Reigns can’t do his job.

Cena goes on and says Reigns should be ashamed because he can do this better part time than Reigns could ever do it full time. Cena drops the mic and the crowd gets riled up with him. Cena has signed the contract. Reigns signs the contract and Cena loves it. Reigns flips the table over and they face off. The music interrupts and out comes Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. They talk about the egos in the ring, calling both men “not a good brother.” They believe Cena and Reigns need to be taught a lesson by a couple of good brothers. They’re headed to the ring to beat up a few nerds. Angle makes a tag match for right now. We go to commercial
