The biggest news coming out of this week’s Monday Night Raw is the supposed reunion of the Shield. What had been speculated and talked about on WWE programming appears to have finally come to pass. Reigns, Ambrose and Rollins ended the show in a backstage segment where all 3 shared a moment of non-verbal communication. It’s too bad for Reigns that Ambrose and Rollins didn’t decide to come out and save him from a 3-on-1 beatdown earlier in the night, but perhaps they were showering after their segment or something.
We are 19 days away from TLC, which seems like the ideal place for a Shield reunion match to take place. After taking out Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel last night, however, it appears 2 other Superstars will be joining Miz. Sheamus and Cesaro interfered on Miz’s behalf last night, indicating they will be Miz’s tag partners at TLC, not Dallas or Axel. Too bad for the Miz-tourage as that would have been a big opportunity for them.
The women’s championship match at TLC was also settled, as Kurt Angle rewarded Mickie James with a title shot. The whole division changes on the 22nd, however, as that is when Asuka debuts for the brand.
In the show’s closing segment, Kurt Angle announced Kalisto will be headed to 205 Live and looks to be entering a feud with Enzo.
