From the WWE Rumor Mill: Asuka's challenger to be revealed and Shield to reunite on RAW?
Tonight’s episode of Monday Night RAW is set to air from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana—the very same venue where Seth Rollins famously turned heel in 2014 and betrayed his Shield brethren.
On that note, the professional wrestling community is rife with speculation that the WWE will indeed present fans with a full-fledged Shield reunion as Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins reunite the famed faction after a gap of about 3 years.
WWE Digital Host Cathy Kelly confirmed the same and expounded on the Hounds of Justice reuniting on tonight’s episode of RAW in the video below—
Furthermore, yet another pivotal happening is a Triple Threat matchup between Nia Jax, Emma and Alicia Fox with the winner of said match proceeding to face former NXT Women’s Champion Asuka in the latter’s upcoming main roster debut match at the TLC PPV later this month.
The victor of the Women’s Triple Threat showdown faces ‘The Empress of Tomorrow’ Asuka at the upcoming RAW brand-exclusive Tables Ladders & Chairs pay-per-view which goes down at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota on October 22nd.
Furthermore, speaking of the Shield reunion, the fabled stable had one of the most impressive runs in professional wrestling history from 2012-14, and are expected to go on yet another strong run in the lead-up to TLC.
Be it the Hounds of Justice reuniting to wreak havoc on the WWE roster or the emergence of a worthy challenger for Asuka, fans have several exciting reason to tune in to the longest running weekly episodic television program in the world—Monday Night RAW!
