The Shield cut a promo about who will face CM Punk tonight. It doesn’t look like they all agree but it’s going to be Punk vs Dean Ambrose.
CM Punk vs Dean Ambrose is up next with no Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns at ringside yet. Punk got the win via GTS. Rollins or Reigns did not interfere.
CM Punk vs. The Shield (3-on-1 Handicap Match)
CM Punk will get his chance to bust through The Shield at WWE TLC, though it won’t be on a level playing field. The Straight Edge Superstar has the deck stacked against him, as he’ll be taking on United States Champion Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns all at once in a 3-on-1 Handicap Match.
Though The Shield made an impact upon their WWE debut one year ago by consistently helping Punk extend his historic WWE Championship reign, the relationship between The Hounds of Justice and The Second City Saint has been anything but friendly in recent weeks.
CM Punk had been focused on helping Daniel Bryan vanquish The Wyatt Family, but that all changed on the Nov. 25 edition of Raw. After a brutal clash with The Wyatts, the eerie trio walked off with a dazed Bryan in tow. Punk, visibly exhausted, tried to chase after the bizarre clan, but was stopped dead in his tracks when Roman Reigns appeared seemingly out of nowhere, viciously spearing Punk to the arena floor. The Hounds of Justice pounced on their weakened prey, throwing him back in the ring for their devastating Triple Powerbomb.
The Second City Saint thought The Authority might have been behind the sneak attack. But while Kane said The Authority’s investigation found no collusion, Kane came up with a way for Punk to release his frustrations, announcing the 3-on-1 bout. Though Punk likes having the odds against him, having to face all three Shield members at once may be too high a mountain to climb for the former WWE Champion. He’ll be facing the United States Champion, the crafty Seth Rollins and a man who single-handedly defeated four Superstars at Survivor Series in Roman Reigns.
Despite the incredible disadvantage he’ll be facing, will CM Punk be able to survive, or will The Shield serve their twisted brand of justice at the final pay-per-view event of 2013?

CM Punk addressed The Authority
It may have been a while since CM Punk dropped a pipe bomb, but that doesn’t mean the scruffy savior of The Second City has lost his particular touch for poking the corporate hornet’s nest. In fact, Punk arrived in the Boomer Sooner State with a proverbial bang in the form of a verbal assault on The Authority for their supposed involvement in The Shield’s attack the previous week (retribution, Punk said, for his off-the-cuff insult towards Triple H). While Stephanie McMahon and Kane took issue with the accusation that they had ordered such a strike, they did come up with an on-the-spot ruling in the name of business when The Hounds of Justice emerged – to the apparent surprise of everyone – for yet another go at the former WWE Champion: A 3-on-1 Handicap Match between Punk and The Shield at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs.
The Shield def. WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Goldust & Big Show
The Shield made their first statement before facing CM Punk at WWE TLC, knocking off The Rhodes Brothers & Big Show in a tremendous Six-Man Tag Match on Raw, though the win was hard-fought by any measure. The Hounds found themselves in the doghouse early on thanks to a tremendous start from Big Show; it took an impeccably-timed strike to Cody Rhodes’ arm by Dean Ambrose to give The Shield their first advantage of the bout.
With Cody one-armed and isolated, The Shield gained control until Show backed in tagged in, though The Shield’s teamwork instinct kicked in and Ambrose stopped the giant short by sending him over the top rope, making Show the second victim of the numbers game. A chokeslam to Roman Reigns opened the door for Goldust, but The Bizarre One’s innovative attempt to superplex an interfering Ambrose onto a prone Seth Rollins backfired when Rollins – the legal man – dodged the move and rolled up Goldust for the win.

Daniel Bryan & CM Punk def. The Shield via Disqualification
Who says old rivals don’t make good tag team partners? Bolstered by CM Punk’s humiliation of Paul Heyman, The Second City Saint & Daniel Bryan came out cocky and confident against The Shield in Kane’s first Raw main event as Director of Operations. The pair initially targeted Seth Rollins until he was forced to summon Roman Reigns, who initiated the “numbers game” attack that left Bryan at their mercy. The “Yes!” man saved the day with a last-gasp tag of Punk, yet before The Second City Saint could put the opposition to sleep the lights cut out and The Wyatt Family swarmed the ring.
Punk & Bryan caught a lucky break when tensions boiled over into a brawl between The Shield and The Wyatts. Their luck was short-lived when Bray marshaled the warring factions into targeting their “common enemy.” All seemed lost until The Usos & Rhodes brothers stormed the ring, saving Punk & Bryan from certain doom and ensuring they would survive to see another fight.

WWE has asked various superstars what they’re max bench pressing lately. One of those superstars was our very own Roman Reigns.
What is the most you have ever bench pressed?
Four hundred forty-five pounds, but that was on a Monday morning before Raw.
How important is strength training to a WWE Superstar?
It’s pretty crucial, because there’s obviously a standard and if you don’t match up to it, you get destroyed.
Who is the most impressive bench presser you have witnessed in person?
I’m going to take full credit for this: Big E Langston. While we were in developmental, I spotted him on 575 pounds. I’m convinced that he would not have been able to do it without me there.
What’s the best way for a person to increase his max bench press?
Negatives. Focus on negatives and do a lot of dips.

Big Show def. WWE Champion Randy Orton & The Shield via Disqualification
As far as rough first days back go, Big Show can certainly lay claim to an all-timer after Triple H pitted him against The Shield & Randy Orton and the giant found himself overwhelmed by the entire Authority before the bout could end. Despite the swarm of foes that attacked him, the giant fought back at each turn and refused to let his four foes overwhelm him, and it was only the reappearance of Kane – now in a suit and tie – that spelled his doom.
Without saying a word, The Devil’s Favorite Demon tossed a batch of steel chairs to Orton & The Shield, and though Big Show won via DQ when they went to work, the ensuing mugging – culminating in a Triple Powerbomb through the commentary table – was anything but a victory. In fact, with the odds even higher than ever before for Big Show, getting his job back might prove to be The World’s Largest Mistake.

The Usos def. Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins
After Jey & Jimmy Uso helped to neutralize The Shield on Monday night, Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins aimed to quell the battling Samoans on SmackDown. In a key moment, however, Roman Reigns’ attempt to get involved in the action brought Big E Langston to the ring, evening the odds and allowing the action to continue unabated.
While The Usos would ultimately pick up the quick win over Dean Ambrose, the United States Champion swiftly launched a post-match attack of retribution. In response, Langston leveled Ambrose with unrelenting force.
The intrigue didn’t there, for when Reigns entered the ring to help remove Ambrose, it seemed for a moment as though he was going to engage all three members of the opposition himself! Before he could, though, his fellow Hounds of Justice called off the big dog.

The Shield def. Big E Langston & The Usos
No moral victories were necessary when The Shield joined forces against Big E Langston & The Usos. Despite Dean Ambrose retaining his U.S. Title by default against the former NXT Champion, the three Hounds of Justice triumphed the old-fashioned way when they joined against Langston & The Usos, pinning their foes for the 1-2-3.
Isolating Jimmy Uso from his teammates, the men in black hacked away at the tag specialist’s defenses until Jimmy took Ambrose out with a kick to the head and tagged in his brother. Jey Uso brought his team to the edge of victory, yet Rollins blocked his Superfly Splash and tagged in Reigns while Ambrose and Langston brawled at ringside. After a brief double-team on The Shield by the twin marvels, Roman Reigns blasted both Usos with a spear and made the cover on Jey, as The Shield rode the former Tag Team Champion’s brutal signature maneuver to victory.
Big Show crashed Randy Orton’s WWE Championship coronation
Raw began with a party-crashing and it ended with a party-crashing. But whereas World Heavyweight Champion John Cena made it out of his own interruption in one piece, The Authority didn’t fare so well when Big Show made his presence known during Randy Orton’s WWE Championship coronation.
The ceremony was less a “coronation” than a parade, with the WWE roster forced to observe Orton’s championship victory speech. The Viper didn’t get quite too far, though, before Big Show’s music hit and the giant thundered down to the ring in blatant violation of The Authority’s restraining order. Though The Shield ran interference, the Rhodes brothers and Usos cleared the way for Show, who vowed vengeance against Triple H & Stephanie for their vendetta against him.
Orton attempted to get the jump on the giant with the WWE Title as a weapon, but Show caught wise and blasted The Viper with a KO Punch while Triple H looked on in horror, unable or unwilling to fight back. That’s a black mark – at best – for The Authority, and a black eye for certain on The Face of WWE.
