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?

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 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.

Seth Rollins def. Damien Sandow
With his fellow Shield members firmly united in his corner, Seth Rollins took on Damien Sandow. Using a distraction by the flanking Hounds of Justice to help triumph over the “Enlightened One,” Rollins stomped his opponent into the canvas for the three-count. Then, after the bell, the ironclad trio further demonstrated their renewed unity, delivering a fierce post-match assault on Sandow that ended with a Triple Power Bomb.
Big Show def. Kane
Prior to his match against Big Show, Corporate Kane ordered The Shield to be at ringside. Though they made it clear they didn’t take orders from the Director of Operations, The Hounds also said that, in the end, they always do what is best for business.
In the midst of the colossal SmackDown main event that followed, The Shield did come to the ring. However, when Kane ordered them to attack The World’s Largest Athlete in the height of the action, they would not comply. Moments later, Big Show delivered a chokeslam that finished off the corporate combatant.
As the smoke cleared, a seething Kane grabbed Seth Rollins and dragged him into the ring. But as he raised Rollins into the air to attempt his own chokeslam, Roman Reigns blasted the corporate entity with an earth-shattering Spear.

The Shield def. Cody Rhodes & Goldust
If anyone on the WWE roster was in need of a morale-boosting victory, it was The Shield. And The Hounds of Justice, despite recent tensions, came through in the clutch by defeating The Rhodes Brothers on Raw to earn some belated payback for “The Brotherhood’s” taking of their Tag Team Titles back in the fall. With Dean Ambrose prowling the sidelines, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns got off to a strong start before the brothers pounced with a criss-crossing cross body-somersault plancha combo to the two Hounds outside the ring.
Reigns roared his way back to the advantage, beating the paint off Goldust’s face and initiating the Shield’s patented “numbers game” plan alongside Rollins to power their way to a near-permanent advantage. A last-ditch effort from a fresh Cody Rhodes gave The Brotherhood life, but Rollins got the last word by reversing the Disaster Kick into a corner powerbomb and, finally, a stomp that drove the prince of the Rhodes family face-first into the canvas.

SmackDown hosted a volatile Shield Summit
After Seth Rollins walked out on his fellow Hounds of Justice while they were battling The Wyatt Family on Raw, the “Architect” of The Shield called a Summit of all three members in an attempt to get them all on the same page.
With every moment more tense than the one before, United States Champion Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Rollins proceeded to work out their issues – utilizing both verbal and physical attacks on each other to make their points known – and put their fists in the middle to walk out of SmackDown apparently reunited.

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.
