'Brothers' - a term used during the peak of The Shield's success as they ransacked both the attention of the fans and the main event spotlight from 2012 to 2014. It is a term also used on the August 10 edition of RAW in a promo cut by Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose towards the Wyatt Family.
WWE are building to the biggest show of the Summer and have put two of the three ex-Shield members in a tag team match against Bray Wyatt and his prodigal son Luke Harper, almost a year and a half since The Shield's memorable disbanding.
This automatically raises suspicion. Why a tag match? Why not have a rematch between Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns giving the badass Samoan a chance to gain victory against the 'New Face of Fear' after his loss at Battleground?

This would leave Dean Ambrose and Luke Harper to rekindle a rivalry dating back to Wrestlemania 31, after Harper delivered a brutal power bomb straight through a ladder, resulting in Ambrose crashing head first to the floor below.
So why a tag match? Well, it would be the perfect opportunity for Dean Ambrose to turn on Roman Reigns and become a top heel in the process.
Lets look at the current climate of top heel's in the WWE (or lack there of): Seth Rollins (WWE World Heavyweight Champion) and Brock Lesnar. Though they are two of the best the company has to offer, there is still a lack of credible opponents for stars like John Cena, Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan (upon his return) and Randy Orton.
There is still one issue however... would it work?
Last year at the Royal Rumble, Roman Reigns was greeted with blistering boos. It could be argued the crowd forced WWE's hand in changing the outcome of the main event of Wrestlemania 31. This left Reigns without a title and Seth Rollins atop the ladder (no pun intended) after cashing in his Money in the Bank ladder match contract.
Would Ambrose turning on his 'brother' make him more over as a face? Especially with the 18-30 male demographic. Regardless, if WWE does go ahead with the turn, we are in for an incredible rivalry between the two, leaving us one step closer to that Shield triple threat match we all desire.
