From WWE.Com:

The reunited Shield have already been confirmed to compete at WWE Super Show-Down. Now, their opponents have been named.

Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre, rivals to Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose, will join forces to battle The Hounds of Justice in Melbourne, Australia in a super-sized showdown between the most dominant team in WWE history and a veritable super-team comprised of some of Raw’s most talented competitors.

Of course, Strowman is the most imposing of The Shield’s opponents, having been thwarted by The Hounds of Justice right as he moved to cash in his Money in the Bank contract on Reigns during Raw the night after SummerSlam. But Ziggler & McIntyre’s motivations should not be discounted, either: Rollins was unable to reclaim the Intercontinental Title from Ziggler largely due to McIntyre’s interference, and it was only when The Architect brought Ambrose back from injury that he was able to dethrone The Showoff at SummerSlam.

WWE Super Show-Down takes place at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Saturday, Oct. 6. Tickets for WWE Super Show-Down are available now via ticketek.com.au. Further ticket information is available at tegdainty.com. Don’t miss the monumental event, streaming live on WWE Network and available on pay-per-view around the world.

Dean Ambrose makes his way to the ring.

He is asked about the comments made last week by Drew McIntyre, Dolph Ziggler, and Braun Strowman. Dean says that there is some truth to what they said last week. Seth and Roman are both champions. Dean says he has nothing. He was a champion on his own before. When he got injured and lost a year of his career, he was replaced pretty quickly by Jason Jordan.

Dean is asked if he thought about leaving The Shield. He says he thinks about a lot of things. Maybe he turned in his notice and gave up his black uniform. Maybe the dog tags don’t mean as much as they did before. Maybe he ran Roman’s car off the road and he won’t even be here tonight.

Dean is asked about the questions being asked about him. Dean wonders if they are asking if he is still part of the Shield. Will he turn his back on them? When will he finally snap because he is a lunatic and you don’t know what he will do next. Maybe they are thinking that Dean is waiting for THE PERFECT TIME when nobody is looking or watching for him to slip the knife right in their back.

He is asked about the end of Raw. Dean asks if they are looking for him to say that he is thinking why he came back to Raw. He could be on Smackdown and doing his own thing because since he came back, he has been cleaning up his brother’s messes. Are you asking if he is fed up with the Shield. Dean says to look at what he does by standing by his family. The Shield is not a business or a brand. It is a brotherhood. They will always ride into battle together.

Baron Corbin’s music plays and he makes his way to the stage.

Baron says that was a good story about brotherhood but all he heard was a bunch of whining. If there something gnawing at that little lunatic brain of his.

Dean asks if Baron is also a therapist in addition to being a substitute teacher. Dean wonders if Baron is salty after he could not finish off the Shield the last few weeks.

Baron says that they were not causing chaos and no cops were called so it was a win for him. Baron says if you want to be judged by your actions, you can choose one of these three options. You can face Seth Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship. You can face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. You can go one on one with Braun Strowman.

Dean thinks about it and Baron asks if it is his brothers or his career.

Dean says that if you think Baron is going to come out and dangle a carrot and watch him dance, you don’t know him. What about option four and he kicks your ass right now.

Baron says he will make the decision for Dean and it will be Braun Strowman right now.

To celebrate the upcoming milestone 1,000 episode of Smackdown, WWE.Com have a top 15 best matches in Smackdown history list up. The Shield’s first loss against Orton & Team Hell No makes the list at number 3, Below is what WWE.Com have to say about this match and features quotes from Seth Rollins:

 

#3  The Shield vs. Randy Orton & Team Hell No: June 14, 2013

It’s hard to imagine Daniel Bryan, Kane and Randy Orton coexisting, but the trio somehow cooperated to give The Shield their first Six-Man Tag Team Match loss in June 2013. At the time, The Hounds of Justice were unstoppable, having won the WWE Tag Team Titles and the United States Championship by way of their military precision and a ruthless disregard for their opponents. After dominating throughout the match, The Shield were forced on the defensive when Kane unleashed on Dean Ambrose with a fiery barrage. With a blind tag, Bryan continued the assault by sending all three Shield members outside the ring and then throwing himself at his dazed opponents with reckless abandon. After Kane took out Reigns and Orton stunned Rollins with an aerial RKO, Bryan made The Architect tap out.

“They caught us that night, what can I say?” Rollins told WWE.com. “It was actually a little bit of a relief to get that first loss out of the way, because there’s a lot of pressure that comes with being undefeated.”

Even though Rollins admits that The Shield was off its game that night, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more exciting and competitive Six-Man Tag Team Match. — JAMES WORTMAN

This week on RAW was a battle of mind games as The Shield prepared for both Super Showdown in Australia and their return six man tag match on RAW as Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre especially tried with the mind games on Dean to get him to turn against his brothers and side with them… hmm is Dean’s mind where you want to be playing boys? In the end Dean stays with The Shield which leaves Strowman, Ziggler & McIntyre fuming!

Here is what WWE.Com had to say this week:

Despite the best efforts of Braun Strowman and Raw Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre, Dean Ambrose’s brotherhood with Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins has never been stronger, as evidenced by The Shield’s impressive showing against Acting General Manager Baron Corbin & AOP in a blistering six-man main event.

Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre confronted The Shield

If there was any lesson to be learned from The Shield’s breakup a few years ago, it’s that the greatest threat to the group usually lies from within. So while The Hounds of Justice might withstand an outside threat like Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre — key word being might, but we’re a few weeks away from testing that — there’s something to be said for The Monster Among Men’s newest tactic of stirring up some latent discord by targeting Dean Ambrose.

Why Ambrose? The most devout Hound of Justice is also the only one without a championship despite having held down SmackDown LIVE as WWE Champion two years prior. According to Team Braun, he’s the “sucker” who Seth Rollins begged to help win back his own title, and he’s the one who, Ziggler pointed out, was replaced in a matter of weeks last year when The Kingslayer teamed up with Jason Jordan in the wake of The Lunatic Fringe’s injury. Strowman & Co. made Ambrose a full-fledged offer: Join their crew and they would ensure he defeated Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship.

The Shield were having none of the pack’s attempt to tear them apart, but Acting General Manager Baron Corbin, on thin ice already with Commissioner Stephanie McMahon, wasn’t about to let The Hounds run roughshod over his show. The Lone Wolf ran interference to not so much stop the action as delay it — per Stephanie’s orders, Corbin will team with two partners of his choosing to battle The Shield later in the night.

The Shield def. Acting General Manager Baron Corbin & AOP

True, Dean Ambrose is the only member of The Shield without a title. Sure, Seth Rollins needed his help to become Intercontinental Champion. And maybe Rollins and Roman Reigns didn’t text him every day during his recovery. But that doesn’t mean The Shield’s about to break up. In fact, they looked as good as ever in their first match together in nearly a year despite overwhelming odds both within the ring — Acting General Manager Baron Corbin picked AOP as his partners — and outside, as Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre sat in chairs while watching from atop the ramp.

Not only that, but The Lunatic Fringe himself turned the tide. After targeting Reigns for the entire match (Rezar went punch-for-punch in an early slugfest with the Universal Champion), AOP dispatched The Big Dog with the Last Chapter on the outside, and Rollins was stranded in the ring when Ambrose finally managed to tag back in. The former WWE Champion briefly found himself overwhelmed when AOP re-entered the fray, but thanks to interference from Reigns and Rollins, he planted Corbin with Dirty Deeds and teed him up for a Spear. And despite what appeared to be a moment of hesitation on his part, Ambrose rejoined his brothers for the customary fist bump at the end of the match. Turn on The Shield? Please. If tonight was any indication, they’re just getting started.

It was back to singles action for Dean this week on RAW, taking on Drew McIntyre sadly it’s Dean’s first pinfall loss since his return from injury. Later both Dean and Seth help out Roman against the numbers of Corbin, Strowman, Ziggler & McIntyre after Roman was forced to defend his Universal title against the acting GM in the main event. So much payback to come against all that stand in the way of The Shield!

Here is what WWE.com had to say:

Raw Tag Team Champion Drew McIntyre def. Dean Ambrose

 

Dean Ambrose has made it a point to target Drew McIntyre during almost every multi-man scrap the two have been involved in since his return. On Raw, The Lunatic Fringe got his wish to throw down with McIntyre one-on-one and suffered the consequences, as the former WWE Champion was defeated by The Scottish Terminator in a match that took both Superstars to the limit one night after a marathon show-stealer for the Raw Tag Team Championship.

Between the lingering effects of the epic tag team match and their brawl atop Hell in a Cell, both Superstars were banged-up, and Ambrose took advantage with a focused attack on McIntyre’s left leg. The strategy was enough to even the playing field against the mighty Scot, and a Cloverleaf to the big man left him all but hobbled. But McIntyre broke the hold by reaching the ropes and switched his strategy, baiting Ambrose outside the ring and dodging a frantic flying axe handle off the turnbuckle. The move carried Dean full-speed into the barricade instead, and even though a woozy Ambrose barely managed to beat the 10-count back into the ring, he sprinted headfirst into a Claymore that earned McIntyre the win. Make no mistake, though: He had to earn this one.

Universal Champion Roman Reigns def. Acting General Manager Baron Corbin

As Acting General Manager, Baron Corbin has many powers. He could make himself a Universal Championship Match at a moment’s notice to pick on beat-up champion Roman Reigns. He could even, say, re-start that match as a No Disqualification if he ends up in too deep of a hole and decides to break out a chair to even the odds. What he couldn’t do, no matter how he stacked the deck, was close out.

Yes, Corbin missed out on the Universal Title despite a massive managerial advantage over The Big Dog that he didn’t hesitate to exploit, not to mention some help — Braun Strowman showed up to attack Reigns after the restart, instigating a brawl that ended up roping in Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre and the rest of The Shield. But even with all conceivable odds stacked in his favor, Corbin fell to a quick-strike Spear when he attempted to make his move. Strowman, Ziggler & McIntyre opted not to make a move on The Shield, seemingly preferring to save their energy for WWE Super Show-Down. So while it’ll take more than shenanigans to topple Roman Reigns as champion, that doesn’t mean a big fight isn’t on the way all the same.

Ahead of the live event in Edinburg, Texas at the Bert Ogden Arena, The Monitor interviewed Dean about his injury and the health scare that came along with it, being back in the ring and his new look. Below is the full interview you can also view it at TheMonitor.Com 

Before WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose went into surgery to repair a torn triceps tendon, he was told to expect a three- or four-month recovery period. Once his doctors saw the extent of the damage, they upped the timetable to six. And about six weeks after that, Ambrose said a routine checkup quickly escalated into a second surgery to combat an infection. All in all, Ambrose describes the eight months he was off television as “one nightmare after another.”

Ambrose made his return to WWE Raw last month, and today he will be part of a WWE Live event at Bert Ogden Arena in Edinburg. Ambrose will team with Seth Rollins to take on Raw Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre — a preview of their championship match scheduled for Sunday’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view in San Antonio.

In advance of WWE’s first ever appearance in Edinburg, Ambrose caught up with The Monitor prior to the Sept. 3 episode of Raw from Columbus, Ohio. Ambrose detailed the excruciating pain he worked through before finally taking time off due to injury and the grueling recovery process that followed. He also discussed his diet and training routines, his new style in and out of the ring and his goals going forward — which certainly do not include regaining the title of WWE Ironman.

Q: How has it felt to be back on Raw the past couple of weeks?

AMBROSE: It’s good to get back out in front of people. I had a lot of frustration I needed to really get out that built up over the last eight months. It was a long, long period of time. Much longer than would have been anticipated.

It was just one nightmare after another. It was a pretty challenging period of time to go through. I ended up having two different surgeries. I had this MRSA, Staph infection. I nearly died. I was in the hospital for a week plugged up to this antibiotic drip thing, and I was on all these antibiotics for months that make you puke and crap your pants.

So it was a pretty rough time. My arm wasn’t healing correctly, and my triceps. It’s kind of an indeterminate period where I initially hurt it. I thought it was, we call it Dusty elbows. It’s a pretty typical wrestler thing. You just get this bursa sac of fluid on your elbow from banging it on the mat or whatever. I’ve had that dozens of times on both elbows. It usually just goes away. It was kind of disguised. By the time I finally went and got the first surgery, my triceps was already starting to atrophy and look weird. I wasn’t able to flex my triceps for a really long time. And then the first surgery didn’t really, something went wrong in the process. Probably due to that infection. It’s kind of hard to say when that really even got in my body. This is a long answer to your question. But for a minute there, it was getting scary. By the time I got that second surgery, it was March, I think. My arm was so shrunken and skeletal that it was weird. I hadn’t been able to move it or flex it in so long that I was starting to get scared I wasn’t ever going to get it back. To go from not being able to eat my Froot Loops, to being able to get back in the ring and throw people around and throw punches and do everything back to normal, it was a very gratifying feeling.

Q: How long after the first surgery did you realize you had the infection and would have to have another surgery?

AMBROSE: It looked good. Before I went in for the first one, they were like, ‘OK, yeah, this is going to be a three- or four-month thing. You’ll jump right back.’ Once I woke up, they were like, ‘Oh man, this is going to be six months minimum. Because we went in there, and that thing was messed up. You beat it to death. It’s going to be a lot harder than you initially thought. But still, not so bad.’ They said they found traces of an infection during the first surgery, but they cleaned it out. I don’t know if it was in there previously, or if it came after. It could’ve been with me for years. I don’t know. But it was about six weeks or so after that I was like, this is not healing correctly. I didn’t have anything to compare it to, because I had never been hurt before. So I ended up going back for just a checkup. I thought I was just going to turn right back around and get on a plane and go home, and they were like, ‘No, you have to go in again for surgery like right now.’ I was like, ‘Oh, no.’ I had just kind of got through all of the stitches and all of that stuff. It was a giant mess. I just kept having to start back from square one. I ended up just moving to Birmingham just to play it safe and be with the doctor and best rehab guys. As soon as I got out of the second one, I was flying home, grabbing my dog, turned right back around, got in the truck and drove to Birmingham. I just stayed there for two and a half or three months until they felt like I was pretty good. Once the MRSA really got out of my system, I was working out twice a day. Rehabbing twice a day on top of that in Birmingham. Doing everything possible to try to get my arm working again, and once I started to come back, I started to make a lot of progress over the summer. So I’m feeling good now.

Q: Was the second surgery entirely for the infection or did you still have structural damage to the triceps?

AMBROSE: The tendon was attached when I went in there the second time. But there was all this goo. The environment wasn’t letting it heal correctly, I guess. I’m not a doctor. I don’t know. But they just had to scoop out all this gooey stuff. I didn’t realize how bad it was. If I hadn’t gone in for that checkup, I could’ve gotten seriously sick. It could’ve been even more dangerous. But it all worked out.

Q: It sounds like you could tell something was wrong because you weren’t able to move it normally or work out at the level you wanted to.

AMBROSE: Yeah, I didn’t really have anything to compare it to. I was rehabbing it where I live in Vegas and was just doing what they were telling me to do. But I just kind of, in my mind, knew something wasn’t right. I was like, ‘I don’t know. Something is weird here.’

Q: You mentioned how hard you hit training after you got through it, and people are seeing the difference now that you’re back on TV. What was your routine like once you started feeling healthy again to get into the shape that you’re in now?

AMBROSE: Nothing fancy. Pretty basic. Just basic powerlifting. Bench, squat, dead lift. It’s a lot easier when you have the time to just recover and stuff. Being on the road 280 days per year, you’re working 30 minutes per night and traveling all around the world, recovery is a lot harder. But nothing fancy. Just super basic, heavy-ass weights.

Q: Does your diet change at all when you don’t have to travel?

AMBROSE: I can pretty much eat whatever I want. For me, it’s just, you have to eat a ton to make sure I keep on size. I especially eat tons late at night. Everybody tells you you’re not supposed to eat late at night. I’m the opposite. I’m stuffing food in my face 24/7. I eat generally a pretty clean diet anyway, just regular stuff. Steak. Stuff like that.

Q: How much of a challenge have you found it throughout your career to maintain being muscular and that level of fitness while on the road? Have you learned anything about how to manage that or changed your approach over time?

AMBROSE: I’m always doing different stuff. I go through different phases where I’ll get bored of one style of stuff and do other stuff. I’m a very physical person. That’s why it was tough to be stuck being inactive for so long. I don’t necessarily enjoy sitting on the couch watching TV. I’m all for that, sometimes. You need to relax. But generally, it doesn’t keep my attention very long. I like to be out doing stuff. Everything I do is some kind of physical exertion that’s relaxing to me. I’m always doing different stuff for fun. Whether that be mountain biking, running, running on mountains, training in wrestling and grappling. I’m just doing whatever I think is fun. I’m always doing all kinds of different stuff.

Q: When you were injured and away from TV, were you keeping up with the program weekly, or was that tough to watch?

AMBROSE: I entirely mentally checked out. I kind of had to. I had been in so much pain for so long when I left, that I was going through some stage-five-level burnout. I needed to just mentally check out of the whole thing. Seeing anything on TV probably would’ve just annoyed me anyway, since I’m out and can’t do anything. Even so, my brain, my level of patience for anything, just from being in pretty severe, my arm was hurting so bad, just this radiating pain 24/7. I wasn’t able to sleep at night for quite some time until they finally figured out what was wrong. That was a relief to finally have an answer. But I was just dragging my fist. Trying to find the fortitude to go to the ring every night was starting to get hard. So when I had the opportunity to step away, I just full-on stepped away and mentally checked out.

Q: How long were you struggling like that before you finally decided to step away and take some time off?

AMBROSE: It was maybe as much as two months before we finally found out what was wrong.

Q: When Seth Rollins had his injury, he said in his “WWE 24” documentary it was nice to be able to reconnect with friends and family for a time and take a breather. Did you experience anything similar or find any positives going through this experience?

AMBROSE: Yeah, there definitely was some time. Normally, people will be like, ‘Oh yeah, I’m going to come visit.’ And I’m like, ‘Well, I’m not going to be home like, ever.’ If I’m in a town that one of my friends is in, we’re in and out and we’re out on a plane the next morning or that night. So it’s a quick hello, maybe. But I was able to have some people over for a few days. I was able to, my sister bought a new house, and I never got to go out and see it, so I got to go out and see it. Stuff like that. There was definitely some time to hang out with normal humans doing civilian stuff. It’s weird to try to remember how to do that.

Q: You came back with a very different look, with a short haircut and changed facial hair. How did you settle on that look specifically or why did you want to change direction?

AMBROSE: Right after I got hurt, I cut my hair really, really short. Like, all the way. After it grew out a little bit, I liked it. So I was like, I’m just keeping this. I wanted to do that for a long time, actually. I said, ‘I’m just keeping it like this. I don’t care what anybody says.’

Q: In the ring, I think there’s been a difference in how you’ve wrestled your first couple of televised matches. How do you describe the changes to your in-ring style, and what led to that?

AMBROSE: I was able to go back to Ohio, where I started, a few times over the summer, and get in with my guys that I’ve trained with and I started with. I brought in some guys specially to work with, guys who like wrestling and know me. I’m really just at a mental point where I’m just like, ‘I just want to take guys down, beat them up, pin them and go home.’ Hard-nosed, straightforward, aggressive wrestling. Nothing fancy. Nothing confusing. Your brain gets so melted being in the circus that is WWE for so long, you know? Sometimes it’s nice to just get back to super basics.

Q: Before you went out, you were the Ironman of WWE and had wrestled the most matches for the past couple of years. Is that a title you’re interested in reclaiming, or has the injury changed your perspective on that?

AMBROSE: I heard that, and that was nice, but that’s a title that’s worth exactly zero dollars. So I’ll let somebody else have that. I’m ready to move on.

Q: Do you have any other goals now that you’re back in the ring?

AMBROSE: Yeah, I’m just going to have to let all that play out and so forth. My mindset is a lot different, probably, than a lot of the other WWE superstars as far as what I want and what makes me happy and the things that are rewarding to me. I have some stuff left on the table that I want to do. I’ll let it all kind of play out. Right now, I’m just enjoying being back in the ring, which is nice, to be back traveling again. Last night, we got in from Shanghai, China. Right after Raw last week — this is a Monday, obviously — we left for the UK and London. We did London, went to Osaka and did Japan, went from Japan to China and came back around and now we’re in Columbus, Ohio. I literally just went around the world. It was actually kind of fun. It’s a brutal tour, but it was nice for me to just jump back in. It was weird going from so much inactivity to now I’m right back in the grinder again. But it’s really addictive when you get the mindset that you have to keep moving all the time. Being in one spot is very hard for me to adjust to. Because I’m the type that once every day or two, you feel like, I have the gypsy mindset where I just want to pack up and leave. I can be a place for a day, and then it’s time to go. It’s nice to be back in the swing of things.

Q: It was interesting to hear you say you think you value things other guys don’t, or that you have different priorities. What are some of those things that you think resonate with you more than other wrestlers?

AMBROSE: At this point, money or any kind of quantifiable statistics, titles or whatever, or any kind of validation from anybody is not really important to me any more at this point. The most important thing, the thing that makes me the happiest, is just being happy with a piece of work. Like an artist makes a watercolor painting or whatever, and they sit back and go, ‘I’m really happy with that.’ The thing that I value most in my past and my career at this point, I realize they’re just the stories that I’m more proud of that were told, that still stand up. Just good pieces of work. I want to be happy with the finished product. Whether that’s one match, or a longer story, or if that’s one interview, or whatever. Whatever it is. That’s the most important thing to me at this point. Because I’ve had all the other things. Out of every thing that there is, that’s still the most rewarding thing and the only thing that drives me or gets me really excited other than just the live performance and being in front of the crowd, is that artistic, creative satisfaction.

From WWE.Com:

Get ready for all-out tag team bedlam at WWE Hell in a Cell, where newly-crowned Raw Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntrye will go to war against Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose.

A marquee matchup between the tandems has been building ever since The Shield used a Triple Powerbomb to prevent Braun Strowman from cashing in his Money in the Bank contract on Universal Champion Roman Reigns. After the attack, The Monster Among Men went looking for some backup of his own. On the same night that he would hand over his contract in exchange for a title showdown against Reigns inside Hell in a Cell at the Sept. 16 pay-per-view, Strowman turned on The Big Dog in a tag team match against Ziggler & McIntrye and helped his newfound cohorts to lay wasted all three Hounds of Justice.

Inevitably, Reigns, Rollins and Ambrose launched a counter-offensive on the new association the following week, but they were arrested for their efforts, so they were not on hand to see Ziggler & McIntrye overcome The B-Team later that night to capture the Raw Tag Team Championship. When The Shield finally posted bail just in time to crash Raw’s main event, Ziggler, McIntyre and Strowman once again proved to be one step ahead of the brothers-in-arms when they used a small army of Raw Superstars to help to take out the black-clad trio.

The tenacious Shield remerged six days before WWE Hell in a Cell to get the drop on Ziggler and McIntyre. Following this onslaught, Acting Raw General Manager Baron Corbin decided to do what was “best for business” by making what promises to be an absolutely chaotic Raw Tag Team Title Match between Ziggler & McIntyre and Rollins & Ambrose at WWE Hell in a Cell.

Let the carnage continue when Ziggler & McIntyre battle The Shield for the Raw Tag Team Championship this Sunday at WWE Hell in a Cell, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network at 7 ET/4 PT.

It was revenge and the savy of The Shield as they strike back against their growing list of enemies, first with an all out attack on all the cowards that attacked them last week and later after acting GM Baron corbin asked ‘The Shield’ to leave which they did they launched a two-prong smart attack as Dean & Seth returned to attack the new Raw Tag Team champions as Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins not The Shield this resulted in them using their savvy against Corbin and getting a RAW tag team championship at the Hell In A Cell PPV on Sunday… Can you say new champions? Below is the WWE.Com Report:

 

The Shield confronted Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre

Last week, Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre got themselves a bunch of new friends last week when half the Raw Superstars helped them lay out The Shield. That said, it doesn’t seem from Raw’s opening moments like that alliance was anything more than a partnership of convenience.

After thanking the Superstars who had made what Ziggler called the “hard choice” of standing up to The Shield, Strowman & Co. found their backup all but evaporated after The Hounds of Justice came down through the audience, axe handles in tow, and tried to fight their way to Braun and his “dogs of war.” Rather than throw down on even footing, however, Strowman, Ziggler & McIntyre opted to head for higher ground.

Once again, however, The Shield found themselves in a standoff with the law, as local police officers cornered The Hounds of Justice backstage. Rather than have them hauled off to prison a second time, however, Acting General Manager Baron Corbin offered them an ultimatum: The Shield must vacate the premises, or Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins would forfeit the Universal and Intercontinental Championships and all three would go to jail for a “long, long time.” The Shield can call this skirmish a victory, but clearly, the bigger battle isn’t quite being dictated on their terms just yet.

Raw Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre def. The B-Team; Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins attacked after the match

With their win over The B-Team, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre cleared the decks of competition and cemented themselves as the kings of Raw’s Tag Team division, but they might find that it’s harder to hold the throne down than it was to take it.

Even though the champs held off an effort by The B-Team that was so gritty and inspired that they had to resort to chicanery — McIntyre dispatched Curtis Axel with a Glasgow Kiss, and Ziggler raked Bo Dallas’ eyes — to set up the Claymore-Zig Zag combo, they didn’t get to enjoy the fruits of their labor: Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins jumped the titleholders from behind immediately after the match and sent them scurrying.

Acting General Manager Baron Corbin was furious that his edict had been defied and The Shield had returned, but Rollins & Ambrose pointed out that they were acting on their own, and The Shield had technically kept to their word and stayed away. They also seemed to get Corbin to kind of-sort of admit he had them arrested last week, bringing out a Deputy Sheriff (“G. Ambrose,” according to his uniform) to take The Lone Wolf into custody. However, after a quick sidebar, Rollins & Ambrose opted not to press charges and Corbin later ruled that Ziggler & McIntyre would defend their titles against Ambrose & Rollins at the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. His reason? That Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon wanted Sunday’s event to have as many big matches as possible.
