The Shield announced their marvellous return by triple power-bombing The Miz and taking out Braun Strowman later in the night. But the reunion quickly took a bump when Roman Reigns was sidelined due to a Meningitis virus and had to be pulled out of the first reunion match at TLC.
Reigns made his return a few weeks later and The Shield spearheaded an attack on SmackDown Live. They put on a wonderful match against The New Day at Survivor Series. When things were starting to look good a few weeks later, Ambrose was ambushed and was sidelined due to torn triceps and the estimated time was around nine months.
Let's face it, even though the reunion was nostalgic, it was truly underwhelming. We never got to see the true colors of Hounds of Justice and all three were mostly involved in individual feuds.
We are currently nearing Ambrose's return as he has been advertised for live events in South Africa. With that being said, let us look at three possible ways to reignite The Shield storyline. Will The Hounds of Justice run the WWE again or will they go their separate ways?
#3 Heel Dean Ambrose vs Face Seth Rollins
When The Shield disbanded, Rollins and Ambrose had a very interesting and exciting rivalry with both of them being ready to go to any limits to take out each other. The rivalry lasted for a long time but it never failed to deliver.
They had some phenomenal matches back in the day, but it took place when Rollins was a heel with The Authority backing him up.
The WWE Universe is itching to see a heel turn for Ambrose which will go well with his Lunatic and hardcore gimmick. Rollins is currently the Intercontinental Champion and is set to defend his title in The Greatest Royal Rumble against The Miz and Finn Balor in a ladder match.
There is a high probability of him retaining and he can issue an open challenge next week on Raw stating that he is a fighting champion. Who will answer the call? Dean Ambrose.
Ambrose can either ambush Rollins before the match or after the match out of frustration of losing which will lead to a feud between the two.
