The Shield confronted Evolution
Depending on what you believe, evolution continues forever. But so does justice. And with Evolution reunited to battle The Shield at Extreme Rules, the time has come for the WWE Universe to choose their sides. Triple H, Randy Orton & Batista – clad in their old-school suits under the Evolution banner – certainly made a strong case for themselves as the biggest dogs in the yard.
The Hounds of Justice didn’t let the veterans gloat for too long before they hit Evolution with some truth of their own: That The Game had hired them for their ruthlessness in the first place, and now that they’d made The Shield his enemy, he and the rest of Evolution would have to – as one of their members likes to say – deal with it. Given that The Game still had eleven Superstars in his pocket, that promise would have to wait. With their battle at Extreme Rules two weeks away, however, the wait is thinning rapidly.

Crossing the line (in the sand)
“In life, you either adapt or you perish. That is Evolution.” —Triple H
Last Wednesday on WWE.com, Triple H issued an ultimatum to The Shield: Either the trio grovels at The Game’s feet and apologizes for their recent defiance against The Authority or they face continued consequences for their actions. After relative radio silence from The Hounds of Justice, The Cerebral Assassin announced on SmackDown that it would be the reunited Evolution vs. Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins at Extreme Rules in a Six-Man Tag Team Match.
With The Shield no doubt still recovering from a vicious beat down at the hands of Triple H, Randy Orton & Batista last week, will Rollins, Reigns & Ambrose re-emerge on Raw to confront their Extreme Rules opponents?

Batista & Randy Orton def. WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos via Disqualification
WWE COO Triple H was left hanging by Randy Orton & Batista when he called for unity against The Shield. Judging by what happened to The Viper & The Animal in their second tag team battle against The Usos, they may have been hasty to dismiss his offer. Channeling the late Ultimate Warrior by donning his face paint, the Tag Champs took the fight straight to their opponents as payback for the beating they received last week, shaking the ropes for emphasis after dropping the duo with a pair of suicide dives.
Batista was able to rally his team into the advantage, and thanks to The Viper, an attempted interference from Jimmy Uso was nullified. When the fight spilled over the ropes it seemed like last week’s events would repeat themselves, but this time it was Orton & Batista who felt the pain of an unexpected pummeling when The Shield stormed out from the folds of the WWE Universe to send them scurrying
The Shield vs. Alberto Del Rio, Jack Swagger, Bad News Barrett, Alexander Rusev, Fandango, Rybaxel, Titus O’Neil & 3MB went to a No Contest
Given The Shield’s continuing defiance of the corporate power, it was no surprise that, after teasing a mystery opponent for the trio, The Authority assembled a host of Superstars to face The Hounds of Justice in an 11-on-3 Handicap Tag Team Match in Raw’s main event. What was surprising was who emerged to spell ultimate doom for the men in black.
Rollins found himself the victim of a plus-sized numbers game from the super team, battered by Slater, McIntyre, O’Neil, Rusev & Ryback in quick order. Reigns came to the rescue by Spearing “The Big Guy” outside the ring; the subsequent melee ended both the bout and, seemingly, The Shield’s chances of leaving Birmingham upright. But the exclamation point came in the form of Triple H, Batista & Randy Orton – reunited as Evolution – who administered RKOs, Batista Bombs and one final Pedigree to the overpowered Hounds of Justice. Perhaps it’s not all that surprising: After all, The Shield did cross the line in the sand. What did they expect?

WWE Monday Night Raw wrestler Roman Reigns visited the Vulcan Lounge before he hits the Ring at the BJCC
Everybody needs a hero. And sometimes those heroes come from the unlikeliest of places. For the last year and a half, the entire WWE roster has incurred the wrath of Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns. But a lot can change from one Show of Shows to the next, and inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday night, these Hounds of Justice stood victorious as lauded heroes for this post-Attitude Era.
For some, it feels like just yesterday that The New Age Outlaws and Kane — along with X-Pac — represented a cadre of beloved competitors. During the late 1990s, few grapplers were as popular as Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and The Big Red Monster. But with their true degenerative and rebellious spirits long gone, it was The Shield that took to Spearing these three veterans out of their suits and as far from the boardroom as possible.
The Shield wasted no time, interrupting the D-O-Double-G’s familiar spiel and descending from amongst the capacity crowd. Once the bell rang, it was all about the men in black. Kane did his best to unload on his opponents with furious punches, but the bout quickly evolved into a chaotic brawl. Few could envy the referee assigned to officiating the contest.
Reigns sprang from the floor to nail a dropkick to both Outlaws at the same time as they were draped over the ring apron. Moments later, the powerhouse of The Shield landed a Superman Punch, which Rollins followed by coming off the turnbuckle onto Kane with a spectacular diving somersault over the top rope to the ringside floor.
With momentum decidedly against them, the corporate posse attempted to retreat to the locker room area. But before Kane and his partners could make their way up the ramp, Ambrose and Rollins sailed through the ropes and onto their rivals outside. From there, it was Reigns’ time to shine, not an uncommon sight over the past few months.
The Shield’s enforcer unleashed massive simultaneous Spears onto Dogg and Gunn before turning his attention to Corporate Kane, sending the Director of Operations soaring out of his slacks. From there, a pinfall was all but inevitable. Rollins and Ambrose hoisted an Outlaw each to Reigns’ arms, and the trio executed what can only be referred to as a “double-Triple Powerbomb.” It was Rollins who scored the one-two-three, but this was a win felt by all in attendance.
Blink and you missed it, but this was as impressive and decisive a victory as ever by The Shield. And on The Grandest Stage of Them All, to boot. On this night in New Orleans, Rollins, Ambrose & Reigns proved to be more than just Hounds. They’re bona fide heroes. And you can believe that.

Kane def. Roman Reigns via Disqualification
Despite the WWE Universe picking Roman Reigns as Kane’s Shield-allegiant opponent of the night via the WWE App – and despite the Director of Operations’ disqualification win – the bout ended in indecisive, if tantalizing, fashion mere days before The Shield’s battle against their latest, and most seasoned, opponents. The former and current record holders for most Royal Rumble Match eliminations didn’t so much wrestle each other as engage in a monster-movie style collision, though the arrival of The New Age Outlaws left Reigns outnumbered at the moment of truth.
Happily, The Hounds of Justice run together, and no sooner had Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins arrived to neutralize the threat than Reigns struck Kane down with the Superman Punch. The Shield swarmed The Devil’s Favorite Director of Operations to shut down the match, though Kane eluded the Triple Powerbomb with the help of The Outlaws. Sunday he may not be so lucky.

The Shield vs. Kane & The New Age Outlaws
Since being hired as Director of Operations by The Authority, the always volatile Kane has struggled at times to act in a manner befitting an impartial administrative figure. When challenged, he has often unleashed Big Red rage on any Superstars who refused to respect the rule of WWE COO Triple H & Stephanie McMahon. And now that The Shield has stopped following the company line, The Devil’s Favorite Demon will partner with The New Age Outlaws at The Showcase of the Immortals to attempt to put The Hounds of Justice in their place.
In a little more than a year’s time, the black-clad trio of Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins & United States Champion Dean Ambrose has laid waste to the likes of The Undertaker, The Rock, Daniel Bryan and Big Show. All the while, their unique brand of justice has often brought them into an unspoken alliance with The Authority along the way. However, after infighting and jealousy caused The Hounds to suffer heartbreaking defeats to The Wyatt Family, an intense “Shield Summit” on SmackDown brought Reigns, Rollins & Ambrose into a renewed unity that would spell destruction for anyone in their path — including, as it turned out, high-ranking Authority brass.
When Kane began talking down to The Shield and order them to administer beat downs to Big Show and Jerry Lawler respectively, the triumvirate refused to comply, instead turning their assault on the Director of Operations.
In response, Kane enlisted the services of the six-time Tag Team Champions, The New Age Outlaws, to help deliver a retaliatory strike to The Shield during a WWE Tag Team Title No. 1 Contenders Fatal 4-Way Match. It’s hard to ignore that Road Dogg & Billy Gunn have longstanding ties with The Authority’s Triple H, which date back to their days of running roughshod over Superstars as part of DX.
Will the Attitude Era stalwarts make The Shield regret ever crossing their “Authority”? Or will The Hounds of Justice prove on The Grandest Stage of Them All that, when united, the WWE Universe is indeed still their yard? Find out when WrestleMania 30 airs live on WWE Network, Sunday April 6!

The Shield def. The Real Americans
Even a Real American isn’t immune from the long arm of justice, as Jack Swagger & Cesaro found out when they battled Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins on Raw. Believing Zeb’s boys were equally responsible for their thrashing on SmackDown, The Shield took the fight to their opponents before the bell even rang and coasted to an early advantage when the match began.
Cesaro helped the Americans right the ship by sending Ambrose for a 20-rotation Cesaro Swing, but a series of slaps to the face spurred the “lunatic fringe” into action. Ambrose laid out Cesaro, tagged in Rollins and “the aerialist” took off, breaking free of Swagger’s Patriot Lock to seal the match with his “Peace of Mind” stomp to the head. Moments later, The Shield finished their tour of vengeance with a Triple Powerbomb through the commentary table to Cesaro, but it seems all their conflict against The Devil’s Favorite Director of Operations will soon come to a head: Per Kane’s orders, at WrestleMania, The Hounds of Justice will face Kane & The New Age Outlaws.

Kane accused Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler of orchestrating Occupy Raw
Did Jerry “The King” Lawler use the “Yes!” Movement as his own personal court in his hometown of Memphis? Kane certainly seemed to think so, though The Devil’s Favorite Director of Operations found his one-man investigation overturned by a truly unexpected enemy: The Shield.
Kane had just summoned Lawler into the ring under the pretense of exposing him as Bryan’s inside man throughout Occupy Raw. That brought out The Shield, who at first seemed poised to put the WWE Hall of Famer down at the behest of The Big Red Monster. As it turns out, The Hounds of Justice were more than ready to bite the hand that’s scalded them in recent weeks, and instead turned their focus towards Kane himself, to the tune of a big old Triple Powerbomb. Now that’s justice.
