The Wyatt Family def. The Shield
The WWE Universe knew, after Elimination Chamber, that The Shield was far from infallible when stacked against The Wyatt Family. But who’d have thought The Hounds of Justice suffered their second thrashing at the Family’s hands thanks to a desertion from within their own ranks? The Shield’s professions of unity seemed to hold strong in the beginning of the match, when Seth Rollins put his aerodynamic offense to good use by hurling his body over the ropes against Luke Harper & Erick Rowan before Bray Wyatt equalized the match.
The Shield powered ahead in the match on the back of Rollins’ efforts, and Dean Ambrose tagged in to trap Rowan in the Figure-Four Leglock. The bout quickly descended into an all-out brawl, with Wyatt members storming the ring at random intervals to keep Roman Reigns at bay before Ambrose found himself isolated in The Wyatts’ corner. A big DDT to Bray opened things up for a tag, but Rollins – supposedly tired of being “the glue” of The Shield – hit the bricks and left his teammates to the mercy (or lack thereof) of The Wyatts. Despite Reigns’ last-ditch effort to storm the match, Harper sent him tumbling with a suicide dive and Ambrose was put to bed with a final Sister Abigail from Bray, while a seemingly regretful Rollins looked on from the ramp.

Bray Wyatt def. Roman Reigns via Disqualification
The Wyatt Family won the war against The Shield at Elimination Chamber 24 hours earlier, though a late-game rally by Roman Reigns nearly pulled the match out of the fire for The Hounds of Justice. Therefore, it was only fitting that Reigns was fixing for some payback against The Eater of Worlds himself on Raw.
A giant slap from the Superstar he dubbed “an interesting creature” briefly left Bray Wyatt reeling. “The Man of 1,000 Truths” recovered quickly, however, and delivered some punishing strikes of his own to the former WWE Tag Team Champion, flattening Reigns with a running cross body. Dodging a splash into the turnbuckle, The Shield’s juggernaut battled back and started to roll, though the rest of The Wyatts arrived before he could administer the Superman Punch. Reigns’ Shield teammates stormed the ring to even the odds, allowing their powerhouse partner to unleash his “secret weapon.” Unfortunately, Dean Ambrose’s zeal proved costly when he jumped Wyatt, bringing the bout to a sudden halt and saddling his fellow Hound with the disqualification loss.

The Wyatt Family def. The Shield
Bray Wyatt brazenly declared that war was his favorite game in the build-up to his monstrous family’s showdown with The Shield at Elimination Chamber 2014. In a battle that was every bit the conflict it was predicted to be, Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan showed just how dominating they are on the battlefield, emerging victorious over The Hounds of Justice when Bray Wyatt floored Roman Reigns with Sister Abigail.
The capacity crowd gathered in the Target Center was on its feet in anticipation before the bell even rang, watching and waiting for the two factions to collide. The WWE Universe declared “This is awesome” before the six Superstars even came into contact with each other. Despite rumblings that there may be a crack in The Shield, Seth Rollins, United States Champion Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns stood strong in the specter of their terrifying foes before the bout.
There was nothing the lone official assigned to this bout could do to control the chaos as the two factions stared each other down. Ambrose then charged into the Wyatt Family ranks, getting a few shots in on Bray Wyatt before the eerie trio retreated from the ring.
Rollins used his speed at the official start of the contest to send Rowan staggering back into The Shield’s corner. The massive Rowan eventually steamrolled his way out, turning Rollins inside-out with a mounstrous shoulder block. The Shield’s architect soon wriggled free from Bray Wyatt’s grasp and sent Reigns into battle. From there, the juggernaut tagged Wyatt with a big right hand, which the family patriarch was more than happy to return in kind.
The Shield’s teamwork was on point at Elimination Chamber. They used quick tags to control the pace of the bout and keep The Wyatts in their corner. Though Ambrose stunned Harper with a flurry of wild strikes, Harper stopped him in his tracks with a surprising dropkick.
That allowed The Wyatts to take control, with Harper and Wyatt working over Ambrose and Rollins. Just when Harper thought he had Rollins in a precarious position on the top rope, the speedy Hound of Justice shocked him, flipping out of a German suplex off the ropes, landing on his feet. The Shield’s architect sent Harper crashing to the floor, then dove over the ropes onto the big man as the WWE Universe exploded in amazement.

The Shield def. Los Matadores & Sin Cara
One week after their thrilling bout against The Wyatt Family, Sin Cara and Los Matadores returned to WWE Main Event to take on the eerie trio’s Elimination Chamber opponents, The Shield. As the masked marvels quickly learned, The Hounds of Justice are just as ruthless as The Wyatts.
United States Champion Dean Ambrose had a little trouble in the opening moments of the bout, unable to slow down the speedy Fernando. Seth Rollins had similar issues with Diego and Sin Cara, who caught The Shield’s architect with a kick to the face that may have knocked a few teeth loose.
The Hounds of Justice finally took control of the bout when Roman Reigns entered the fray and bulldozed over Fernando with a shoulder block. Fernando got a reprieve after tagging in Sin Cara. The gold-clad luchador flew through the air with ease, sending Seth Rollins crashing into the commentary table. However, his offense was short-lived, as Ambrose hurled him back into the ring with a suplex off the ropes. Sin Cara was then introduced to the bottom of Reigns’ boots with a vicious dropkick.
Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins did an expert job of keeping Sin Cara from tagging in Los Matadores, clobbering the masked man with a flurry of fists and boots while cutting the ring in half. Despite their best efforts, the bout soon broke down into chaos. Sin Cara stunned Reigns with a tornado DDT, allowing him to finally tag in Diego, who used his high-flying skills to keep Ambrose off-balance.
With Rollins dazed on the arena floor, El Torito sprung into action, hitting a top-rope moonsault onto The Shield’s engineer. But before Sin Cara and Fernando could take flight, Reigns neutralized them both with a simultaneous Spear.
Diego was left by himself in the ring with all three Shield members. It was elementary for The Hounds of Justice, who claimed victory after Reigns hit his trademark Superman Punch and Rollins cleaned his clock with a brutal mat stomp. Though The Shield were challenged by the masked marvels on WWE Main Event, they’re in store for a different kind of war on Sunday when they stand face-to-face with The Wyatt Family.

Roman Reigns def. Mark Henry
The Hall of Pain will have to wait for Roman Reigns, who narrowly avoided joining Mark Henry’s list of conquered foes when he defeated The World’s Strongest Man in the latest statement win of his young career. Reigns – looking to one-up Dean Ambrose’s efforts from the previous week – certainly walked tall heading into the match, though a giant boot to the face from Henry wiped the smile off his face fast. Despite a bone-rattling headbutt from Henry, the “heavy artillery” muscled his way into the match with a Samoan drop and Superman Punch, following up with a spear for the victory.
Ambrose, looking to upstage his teammate, began an attack of his own on Henry that was cut short by an address from The Wyatt Family on the TitanTron. Reigns, fed up with the shadow games, dared the Family to face them in person and was happily obliged, though Bray, Harper & Rowan stopped short of a full-on confrontation. This Sunday will be another story.
Sheamus def. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton via Disqualification
Even though Sheamus kept pace with The Viper, Orton scored the big move of the match by putting the Irishman through the announce table in an attempt to score a count-out win, though Sheamus made it back in at nine to stay alive. A few chest clubs later and it was Orton’s turn to dig deep and stave off White Noise with a backbreaker and hanging DDT. A failed RKO spurred Sheamus into a rage; The Celtic Warrior executed three consecutive Irish Curses and called for the Brogue Kick … until The Shield swarmed him and closed the bout with a disqualification. The brawling Superstars were quickly joined by John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, Cesaro and, finally, The Wyatts, who kicked off an all-out melee from which no one Superstar could escape. In other words, a perfect prelude to the chaos to come.

Mark Henry def. U.S. Champion Dean Ambrose via Disqualification
Somebody’s gonna get their you-know-what kicked … and thanks to The Shield, that someone is not Dean Ambrose, who suffered a DQ loss to his first U.S. Title defense in months – granted under duress – in an open challenge that ended up being answered by Mark Henry. Despite failing to capture the title, though, the former World Heavyweight Champion looked every inch his dominant self, battering the titleholder about in his first match since suffering an injury from Brock Lesnar.
Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins didn’t exactly hate watching the increasingly cocky Ambrose catch an early beating at Henry’s hands, though the champion caught a brief break by exposing Henry’s wrapped-up elbow. The “lunatic fringe” of The Shield briefly brought the big man to his knees, but Henry rallied to strike with the World’s Strongest Slam. Thanks to Rollins’ timely attack at the two-count, though, the match ended in disqualification and The Shield resorted to ganging up on a prone Henry in order to make their escape.
The Wyatts didn’t give The Hounds of Justice the luxury of a clean getaway; they skulked down the ramp and stared down their Elimination Chamber opponents from across the ring, taunting them in a (still unanswered, for now) challenge to make a move.

Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns def. Dolph Ziggler & Kofi Kingston
As United States Champion Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns teamed together against Dolph Ziggler & Kofi Kingston, Seth Rollins sat in with the SmackDown announce team – vehemently denying that any problems existed between the members of The Shield.
However, when Ambrose tried to tag himself into the match – just as he had done on Raw – the look on Roman Reigns’ face showed anything by unity. Then, after Kingston was grounded outside the ring, Reigns blasted The Showoff with a Superman Punch/Spear combination. He then decided to make a point to his partner, tagging Ambrose in to the match and allowing him to pick up the effortless three-count.
While The Hounds of Justice began bickering after the bell, the appearance of The Wyatt Family on the TitanTron quickly drew their focus – as The Eater of Worlds and his disciples offered another creepy message to their Elimination Chamber pay-per-view opponents.

The Shield def. Intercontinental Champion Big E Langston, Rey Mysterio & Kofi Kingston
The Shield rolls on en route to their collision with The Wyatts at Elimination Chamber, but victory over Big E Langston, Kofi Kingston & Rey Mysterio did little to calm the tension between The Hounds of Justice when Dean Ambrose, for all intents and purposes, stole a pinfall that rightfully belonged to Roman Reigns. The win was an uphill battle in every sense of the word: Kofi Kingston used his agility to confound Seth Rollins early on, sending him tumbling with a monkey flip before Ambrose and Reigns helped drive Kofi & Co. into a rut that not even a fresh Mysterio could pull them out of.
Rey’s timely escape of the Tree of Woe brought Big E into the fray, and the Intercontinental Champion seized the moment with a shoulder block that all but rendered Reigns into 2-D. Rollins & Ambrose saved the bout with timely interference and Reigns surged forth with a Superman Punch to Langston, though Ambrose tagged in to snatch the pin for himself. The miscue seemed to cause a bit of friction between the three Superstars; a development that Bray Wyatt – who appeared on the TitanTron after the match – was practically salivating over.

Even with the WWE Universe roaring its approval, though, speaking up against the corporate power has never done anyone much good in WWE, and so it was that Bryan was soon besieged by The Shield, who The Authority was all too happy to sic on the besieged fan favorite. It took Sheamus to help give Bryan a fighting shot, and, finally, John Cena to even the odds enough that The Hounds of Justice beat a hasty retreat. To top it all off, Bryan might get what he wants yet: As a result of the melee, he, Cena & Sheamus were confirmed to face The Shield in Raw’s main event, and the winners would be headed into the Elimination Chamber.
John Cena, Daniel Bryan & Sheamus def. The Shield via Disqualification to qualify for the Elimination Chamber Match
The #YESMovement got the shot in the arm its creator wanted: Danel Bryan, John Cena & Sheamus punched their tickets to the Elimination Chamber by beating The Shield to earn their way into the match, though they do owe the win to a surprising, DQ-inducing interference.
After a tight back-and-forth in the opening, The Shield trapped Cena in the numbers game, and Roman Reigns providing the exclamation point via Superman punch; Seth Rollins followed up by knocking Bryan off the apron and attempting to bait Sheamus into an illegal bum-rush of the ring. Cena managed to create separation with an Attitude Adjustment to Dean Ambrose, at which point he finally – finally – found Bryan for the tag. The submission master immediately went to work, hacking away at Seth Rollins until Reigns and Ambrose tried to instigate a brawl to throw off the match.
Cena & Sheamus neutralized the threat, leaving Rollins and Bryan to brawl it out. Which they did, extensively, to such a degree that Cena and Reigns had to tag in. The big man immediately fell to the STF and was about to break the hold when – they’re here – The Wyatts crashed the party for the second time in consecutive evenings. Without warning, the outlandish trio laid into Cena, delivering the win to his squad in the process. In other words, “YES!”, WWE Universe: Daniel Bryan is headed to the Elimination Chamber. As for The Shield? Their road to WrestleMania just got a little bit rockier.

The first Royal Rumble shocker came at No. 14 when the massive Kevin Nash returned to WWE and immediately eliminated Jack Swagger before going after both Rollins and Dean Ambrose at the same time. Big Sexy didn’t last long, though, as the No. 15 entrant — Roman Reigns — tossed Nash, Kofi and Dolph Ziggler in short order. It was the just the beginning of what would become a legendary Rumble Match performance for the muscle of The Shield.
The smallest Rumbler entered at No. 20 as El Torito charged into the squared circle and picked a fight with Punk. The Straight Edge Superstar may have dismissed the little bull, but that was before he had been nearly flipped out of his boots by a hurricanrana. The luchador even scored an elimination when he launched Fandango over the rope with a flying headscissors, but he was then nearly hurled into the mezzanine by Reigns. The mayhem continued from there as JBL left the commentary table at No. 24, and entered the ring in a shirt and tie. Yet by the time he handed off his coat to Michael Cole, he was sacked by the domineering Reigns.
The laughs stopped when the 28th Superstar joined the fray. Making his long-awaited homecoming, Batista stomped to the ring and eliminated Erick Rowan, Ryback and Alberto Del Rio with immediacy. By the time Rey Mysterio entered as the final Superstar in the No. 30 spot, the ring was buckling under the weight of serious behemoths like Big E Langston, Sheamus and Antonio Cesaro. At this point, the notion that the Royal Rumble Match was every man for himself became clear as Ambrose attempted to eliminate Reigns, but failed. Now running off pure adrenaline, the powerhouse set his Shield unity aside, then dumped both Rollins and Ambrose — along with Cesaro — out of the ring at the same time.
With that, Punk, Batista, Sheamus and Reigns stood as the final four, but The Straight Edge Superstar didn’t last long as Kane reemerged and pulled Punk out of the ring (thus tying Shawn Michaels for all-time Royal Rumble Match eliminations with 39). The Director of Operations continued his vicious assault on the former WWE Champion by chokeslamming him through the Spanish announce table. Sheamus was the next to go as he was dispatched by Reigns, who eliminated 12 Superstars – 40 percent of the contest’s participants – to break Kane’s 13-year-old record for the most competitors eliminated in a single Royal Rumble Match. With anticipation reaching a fever pitch, Batista and Reigns squared off like silverbacks fighting for their territory. Bone-jarring spears were exchanged as the upstart tested the veteran’s resolve; ultimately, though, it was The Animal who survived as he launched Reigns out of the ring with one arm.
With the ring now clear of every Superstar but one, Batista stood supreme as the winner of his second Royal Rumble Match. As many greats have done before him, The Animal pointed into the rafters where the WrestleMania XXX sign hung. What awaits him there remains to be seen, but the Road to WrestleMania has begun, and an Animal is leading the stampede to New Orleans.
