The Shield had a reunion of sorts last July when they faced off in a Triple Threat Match at Battleground for the WWE World Championship. According to the latest WWE rumors, the company is looking to have another reunion for The Shield, possibly at the Survivor Series pay-per-view this November.
The trio of Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns are considered by many fans and experts as one of the greatest stables in wrestling history. The Shield wreaked havoc from 2012 to 2014 until Rollins turned heel and betrayed his brothers in arm.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Wrestle Zone), the WWE is planning another The Shield reunion at Survivor Series or even at the Royal Rumble next year. Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns are now all babyfaces so it makes sense that they work together again even for just one night.
It can only be done in the big four PPVs since Ambrose is a member of SmackDown while Reigns and Rollins represent Raw. The last time they had a brief reunion was at Payback 2015 when they triple powerbombed Randy Orton at the announce table.
However, one problem arises besides the trio being in separate brands. The WWE is teasing a Dean Ambrose heel turn after losing the WWE World Championship. He recently attacked John Cena and he got booed very loudly by fans in attendance.
Nevertheless, these are just purely speculative at this point but the WWE wants to make some noise with the football season underway. According to Blake Oestriecher of Forbes, The Shield reunion will not only please fans but also help the career of Roman Reigns.
“Reuniting Reigns with his former Shield mates would utilize the exact same strategy of putting someone who is struggling to generate positive reactions with someone else who will virtually guarantee that that will happen,” Oestriecher opined.
