After a somber start to the show as all Superstars and Diva’s paid their respects to the Ultimate Warrior, things moved on to business as usual and as Batista and Orton took on the Usos, The Shield attacked. Charging the ring and taking out Randy on the outside, the trio then surrounded Batista in the ring. Batista attempts to fend them off but he obviously missed The Shields arrival in the company because the numbers game always comes out on top for them. After a Superman punch that knocks Batista back in to 2006, The Shield take control of the ring and Batista and Orton hightail it out of there. Only to be greeted backstage by Triple H, who gives them an amused ‘I told you so’.
The Shield are later on put in to a Main Event match against mystery opponents, but that doesn’t put them off. Heading to the ring ready for war they rip off the masks and await their next victims. The first of which is Alberto Del Rio.. wait, what? And Jack Swagger.. oookay. Fandango completes the strangest 3 man tag team ever and The Shield seem to be in for an easy night, until 3MB’s music hits, followed by Titus O’Neil and Rybaxel, Rusev and finally Wade Barrett. An 11 on 3 Tag match.
The Shield still don’t back down, it’s a little sad really that the Authority need that many people just to take down three guys. The match gets underway and The Shield strike first, getting hold of Heath Slater and manhandling him as the others surround their corner of the ring. The match starts out as any other, The Shield making quick tags and holding their own against 11 men. But things soon break down as the 11 corner Rollins and begin to taunt Ambrose and Reigns. Mayhem ensues as Reigns spears Ryback on the outside and everybody attacks Reigns. Ambrose hurls himself through the ropes and takes out the crowd but they quickly regroup, leading Rollins to becoming another human missile. But it’s not enough, The Shield fight the 11 men back in to the ring and despite their best efforts, they’re picked apart piece by piece. Just as it seems the assault may be over, a theme not heard since the early 2000′s stuns everybody. Evolution are back. Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista come down to the ring and decimate whats left of The Shield. They go down fighting, but after a handful of Batista Bombs and a Batista Bomb/RKO combo on Dean – Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns are out cold.
Triple H taunts the trio, mocking Reigns as he tries to get to his feet. Eventually they stand and taunt The Shield, striking their signature fist pose as Evolutions theme rings out again.
Revenge will be sweet.
