The Superstar Shakeup has left Dean Ambrose on Monday Night Raw after many different performers were shuffled around due to the WWE’s event. Now, all three members of The Shield have been reunited and sit in the same locker room.
Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins stayed put while their old teammate got put on the red brand in a move expected to give his character a much needed jolt after a middling run on SmackDown Live. In the early returns, this is looking like a good move by the creative team.
Another big star from the blue brand made the jump with Ambrose in The Miz. The outspoken performer used his talk show, Miz TV, as a platform to voice his displeasure about The Lunatic Fringe’s approach in the ring lately.

Miz’s promo did wonders as the crowd reacted to the accusations attentively, in some sense there might have been some thoughts among WWE officials that he truly belonged back on the flagship program once his star had risen to the heights it has now.
His tirade during the segment hit a number of sore spots for the Intercontinental Champion, namely, that he lost some momentum after being selected first overall in last year’s brand draft and losing his WWE Championship on the way to where he is now.

The Awesome One also chirped that even with all the support that Ambrose receives from the company, he still hasn’t been able to accomplish much of anything. Those are cutting words as well, seeing as how Ambrose was bumped down to the WrestleMania 33 pre-show.
Dave Meltzer said that when some statements make it into a promo, it is because somebody higher up feels that there is truth in those words. He would continue to say that these arguments about complacency are coming straight from WWE’s management.
For now, the company will have to hope that the Lunatic Fringe’s current feud with The Miz can re-spark some of the fire in him that was seen after he left The Shield. Both of his former teammates are huge attractions and played large roles in Mania this year.
With a little hard work, maybe there is hope for Ambrose to rejoin them as one of the huge attractions on RAW.
