The Shield is one of the greatest factions in professional wrestling history, and they're finally back together on Monday Night RAW.
Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Dean Ambrose made their WWE main roster debut as The Shield at the 2012 Survivor Series pay-per-view (PPV). The Shield helped then-WWE Champion CM Punk defend his title in a Triple Threat match against John Cena and Ryback. The Shield put Ryback through an announce table with their signature Triple Bowerbomb, allowing Punk to pin Cena for the win.
They would go on to become one of the most dominant teams in Six Man Tag Team history, going on a long undefeated streak before finally being defeated by the team of Daniel Bryan, Kane, and John Cena on an episode of Monday Night RAW.
At one point each man in The Shield held a WWE title, as Reigns and Rollins held the Tag Team Titles and Ambrose reigned as the Untied States Champion. After each losing their titles The Shield then began an epic feud with the reunited Evolution (Triple H, Randy Orton, and Batista).
They were able to defeated Evolution in a Six Man Tag Team Elimination match at the Payback pay-per-view (PPV), however, the following night marked the final day of the faction.
Seth Rollins betrayed Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose by hitting them in the back with a steel chair, in order to join The Authority and begin an extremely successful singles career.
Since their disbandment each man has held a World Title and are extremely popular singles competitors. Recently, The Shield began to reform as Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose reunited to win the RAW Tag Team Titles against The Bar (Sheamus and Cesaro).
Roman Reigns officially joined the party on RAW last night to take out The Miz, Curtis Axel, Sheamus, and Cesaro. Fans absolutely loved the reunion of The Shield and are anticipating their return as a unit in the ring at Tables Ladders and Chairs (TLC).
NXT Tag Team Champions SAnitY were watching the epic reunion, and SAnitY member Alexander Wolfe took to Twitter to tease a possible match-up against the trio:
