A Shield Worthy Appreciation! For 15 years, the WWE has made it their mission to give back a little of what The armed forces freely give every single day. Day in and day out, these brave men and women sacrifice their lives to fight for our freedom. The freedom of life and to be able to choose how we live. One night only, these troops get the night off from fighting and watch as the WWE Superstars including The Shield fight for them.

Tonight The Shield took on The Bar (Cesaro & Sheamus) and Samoa Joe in what was no short of a war. Samoan Drops, Superkicks and Dirty Deeds proved to stun their opponents long enough for Roman Reigns to serve up one hard hitting spear for the win.

Following an all-out brawl between The Shield and Samoa Joe & the Raw Tag Team Champions, the trios battled each other in singles competition on Raw. Although Seth Rollins defeated Sheamus, and Roman Reigns successfully defended the Intercontinental Championship against Cesaro, Samoa Joe managed to defeat Dean Ambrose – no thanks to Jason Jordan – only intensifying the rivalry further.

Despite The Big Dog being set to defend the Intercontinental Title against Samoa Joe on Raw, The Hounds of Justice were ready for a fight, and the USS Dewey provided the perfect backdrop to a Six-Man Tag Team battle pitting The Shield against Samoa Joe and the Raw Tag Team Champions.

There was certainly no love lost between the trios, but The Shield maintained a strong wave of momentum throughout the contest. Although Samoa Joe and the Raw Tag Team Champions did their best to slow The Hounds of Justice, the relentless offense and teamwork of Rollins, Ambrose and Reigns proved to be too much, as the Intercontinental Champion picked up the victory with a ring-shaking Spear to Cesaro.

After the match, The Shield took a moment to thank the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces in attendance.

At Survivor Series, two of the greatest factions in WWE history will go head-to-head when The Shield battle The New Day in a dream showdown that everybody wanted to see, but never saw coming.

Prior to Nov. 6, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins were standing tall as the Raw Tag Team Champions and were poised to battle SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos at WWE’s fall classic, Roman Reigns was on the shelf, and four-time Tag Team Champions The New Day were driving their opponents crazy on the blue brand and waging unforgettable battles with Jimmy & Jey for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.

However, that all changed at the end of Monday Night Raw, when Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods suddenly reemerged in Team Red territory, teasing “Under Siege Part II” and inciting a commotion that cost Ambrose & Rollins to lose their championships to Cesaro & Sheamus.

The following week, a fully reunited Shield interrupted Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon during her tense encounter with General Manager Kurt Angle and challenged The New Day to a Raw vs. SmackDown slugfest. The rest, as they say, is history.

Forget the numbers advantage. Forget psychological warfare. At Survivor Series, get ready as two of the most dominant trios ever to step into a WWE ring show up and throw down. Will The Power of Positivity triumph at WWE’s second-longest running pay-per-view? Or will The Hounds get their justice? Find out this Sunday, streaming live on the WWE Network, with a special start time of 7 ET/4 PT.

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.

The latest chapter in the extremely volatile rivalry between Reigns and Strowman carries enormous implications for The Big Dog. Reigns has officially staked his claim that Raw is his yard, a notion that could have a tremendous long-term impact on WWE.

Reigns has backed up his talk with a tremendous history of taking on anyone put in front of him while constantly refusing to hide behind the likes of The Authority or any other force that could provide him an easier rise to the top. In April, he earned the rare distinction of overcoming The Undertaker at WrestleMania, which propelled his career to even greater heights. Reigns has clearly proven himself a force to be reckoned with, capable of carrying WWE on his back week-in and week-out. Looking to continue his meteoric rise to the top of the red brand, the three-time WWE Champion has already challenged the winner of the Universal Championship Match between Brock Lesnar and Samoa Joe to a title bout at SummerSlam.

However, despite heroic strides, Reigns is likely well-aware that a second pay-per-view loss to a dangerous competitor like Strowman could seriously threaten his championship aspirations, making it a safe bet that The Guy will pull out all the stops to keep that from happening. But will it be enough?

The match also carries significant ramifications for Strowman, the personification of destruction. Prior to crossing paths with Reigns, Strowman was already running wild and attacking Superstars if he didn’t get his way.

His brutal attack on The Big Dog in April — in which he turned over an ambulance with the three-time WWE Champion inside – showed just how far he was willing to go to eliminate the competition. And his victory over Reigns at WWE Payback was punctuated by The Monster Among Men ruthlessly driving the steel steps into his rival’s midsection in an unforgettable and horrifying moment. Now the ferocious Superstar will be out to take full advantage of the chaotic environment of an Ambulance Match, likely with the intent of making Reigns suffer so bad that he won’t be able to compete for the Universal Title.

A loss by Reigns could change everything. If Strowman produces another dominant showing, it’s possible that he could leapfrog his adversary in the Universal Title picture. If the massive competitor once again defeats The Big Dog, he could approach Raw General Manager Kurt Angle the following night on Raw with a legitimate claim to challenge whoever the titleholder is at SummerSlam. And if he were to be granted that right amd went on to capture the championship, Strowman’s reign of uncontrollable mayhem could reach even scarier heights. The level of brutality that would follow with Strowman on the top of the mountain could threaten the very order of Monday Night Raw and all of WWE.

The importance of this match at the first-ever WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view is heightened given that it is a highly-personal showdown, containing a stipulation that completely throws the rulebook out the window. With all eyes on this inaugural event and the gloves off, it’s safe to say that both Superstars will be at their most vicious, and their combined intensity may result in lasting harm to one another and anyone else who gets in their way.

Don’t miss what promises to be a chaotic brawl at WWE Great Balls of Fire on Sunday, July 9 at 8 ET/5 PT, streaming live on WWE Network.

Even by Roman Reigns’ standards, the last two weeks have been almost unbearably difficult. Not only did the former WWE Champion suffer a brutal attack at the hands of Braun Strowman, he suffered the loss of his brother, Matt “Rosey” Anoa’i. Despite this, however, Reigns will still compete against Strowman at WWE Payback this Sunday, and he spoke with WWE.com to discuss the well-wishes he’s received, how his family is holding up and whether he thinks he’s up to facing The Monster Among Men this Sunday at all.

WWE.COM: It’s been a tough two weeks for you personally and professionally. On the personal side, WWE.com sends its condolences to your family. How are you doing and how is everyone else doing?

ROMAN REIGNS: Right now, it’s one of those situations where it’s a lot of mixed feelings. When you live in a big family, it’s always great to be able to come together, but to have to come together to send off a brother — and not only was he my brother, but in our family, even when you’re cousins, we’re all so close that we feel like brothers. That’s the type of connection we have in our family. It was an extremely sad weekend, and it’s still really tough. Everybody’s grieving. But to see our family come together and have a hundred-plus family and friends come together to celebrate my brother’s life really meant a lot. It just continually picks up our family and keeps us moving on.

WWE.COM: Obviously, as you just stated, you have your family around you. Can you talk about some of the support you’ve received from the WWE Universe and other Superstars during this time?

REIGNS: It’s crazy because it almost felt like Christmas times three. I don’t think I’ve ever received so many text messages from family and friends, especially within the company. So many guys in our locker room have reached out to me and sent their condolences and told me if there’s anything I need, don’t hesitate. I truly believe that. And talking to some of my family, that’s not just a saying. That’s real life. They want to do anything they can, whether it’s sending flowers, checking on me to try and talk, try and get down here to help out with any different thing we have to do with the services of a funeral. It’s really nice to be able to hear from all them. And, of course, through your social media, and Twitter is my main source of that, I’ve been overwhelmed with so many prayers and so many thoughts out there by my fans in the WWE Universe. Whether you’re a Roman Reigns supporter or a critic, everybody seems to understand the magnitude of the situation, and when it comes down to it, it’s a part of life but I think everybody gets it. Everybody’s been very sweet and really come to try and help me through this hard time. It really has helped.

WWE.COM: Well, once again, we’d like to reiterate our sentiment. We wish your family the best during this hard time.

REIGNS: Thank you. I just want to thank everybody who’s reached out. All my fans, everybody has been so supportive. This is a tough time but like everything in life we can learn from it and get better from it. My only hope now is that I can continue to represent my family and represent my brother and continue to push our legacy. He was my number one fan. He never missed a match, he never missed anything I did in the ring, he always had great advice for me and always reached out to talk. Payback and 2017 and any chance I get to go in that ring I’m representing him.

WWE.COM: Speaking of which, last time we saw you on Monday Night Raw was the incident at the hands of Braun Strowman with the ambulance. How are you feeling as you recuperate from that attack?

REIGNS: Physically, I’m as beat up as I am emotionally. This has been two of the roughest weeks of my professional career and life. I’ve never experienced a loss this close since it’s my only blood brother, but I’ve also never experienced a beatdown like Braun Strowman gave me. It’s unfortunate, because whatever point he’s trying to get across, he’s handling it the wrong way. And whether he thinks he’s a monster or not, I’m the top dog, I’m the big dog in this yard. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I already took out the greatest legend of all time. If anybody should be worried, it should be Braun Strowman. He’s got a whole storm that’s about to come his way.

WWE.COM: It was obviously announced that you will still face Braun Strowman at WWE Payback. Are you up to the challenge to face him on Sunday?

REIGNS: I’m beaten, I’m bruised, I’m hurt inside, but it comes down to the big fight. That’s what I do. When I step in that ring and my opponent steps in that ring and that bell goes ding, ding, I’m the one that holds it down. I’m the one that shows it’s my yard. I don’t have to jump people in the backstage, I don’t have to blindside people, I’ll face Braun eye-to-eye and put Braun down where he belongs because I’m the best in the WWE, I’m the best in the whole world, and at Payback this Sunday, I’ll show it.

Braun Strowman’s demands for tougher competition have been answered.

The Monster Among Men will square off against three-time WWE Champion Roman Reigns at WWE Fastlane 2017, Raw General Manager Mick Foley announced. Given the two Superstars’ costly interactions of late, you can bet Reigns and Strowman will bring plenty of bad intentions and fire power to their showdown.

First, Strowman interfered during Reigns’ challenge of WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens at Royal Rumble. Eyeing an opportunity to move into title contention, the juggernaut smashed Reigns through a table with a running powerslam, rendering him easy pickings for Owens. The very next night on Raw, as Strowman took his turn challenging the WWE Universal Champion, Reigns retaliated, knocking Strowman to the floor and tackling him with a brutal Spear.

It’s not often that the 6-foot-3, 265-pound Big Dog finds himself at a severe size disadvantage, but such is the case for any competitor who takes on the barrel-chested Strowman. At 6-foot-8 and nearly 300 pounds, The Monster Among Men more than lives up to his moniker, demolishing most opponents with the ease of someone stepping on a bug.

Yet, Reigns is far from an ordinary opponent; his Superman Punch collapses giants (just not Strowman, yet), and he has proven in the past his ability to weather the storm en route to charting big victories.

At WWE Fastlane, will Strowman pulverize Reigns, as he’s done so many Superstars before him, or will The Big Dig serve as a long-overdue gut check? Watch this heavyweight collision when Raw hosts its next brand-exclusive pay-per-view, WWE Fastlane, live on the award-winning WWE Network Sunday, March 5, at 8 ET/5 PT.

We are back and Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

Roman is treated like he played for the Chicago Bears. He says that Seth Rollins sold out two years ago when he turned on The Shield. He has called himself The Man, but how can you call yourself THE MAN when you are running from THE GUY. He is not a good guy or a bad guy, as long as the title is on his shoulder, he is THE GUY. He tells Seth if he thinks he is The Man, come on out and prove it.

Seth Rollins’ music plays and he makes his way to the stage and he starts to walk down the ramp, but he stops and jumps up and down. He moves a little closer to the ring but then he stops short and heads back up the ramp.

Seth gets a mic and he thinks about saying something. Seth drops the mic and he storms towards the ring but stops short again.

Seth goes back up the ramp again.

Seth gestures that he has had enough and walks to the back.

Seth makes his way to the ring and gets next to the ring but Reigns sees him so Rollins goes back up the ramp.
