Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns interrupted the Mizzie Awards and showed the world that The Shield is back in action.

Monday Night Raw started with The Miz and Curtis Axel giving out awards to the wrestlers involved in their attacks on Reigns over the past two weeks.

Cesaro & Sheamus came out to accept their awards and all four men stood tall and continually mocked Reigns, which lead to Reigns coming out.

The Miz began to mock Reigns for not having The Shield at his side to fight against them and said The Shield reunion were rumors, to which Reigns responded by asking “Who said they were rumors?”

This led to Ambrose and Rollins coming out to their current theme music, as all three men stood together, surrounded the ring in Shield style and attacked Cesaro, Sheamus and Axel.

After laying waste to Cesaro, Sheamus and Axel with their signature moves, The Shield chased The Miz into the ring and he got hit with a Dirty Deeds from Ambrose, the King's Landing from Rollins, and a Spear by Reigns.

That wouldn’t be the end of The Miz’s suffering as The Shield hoisted The Miz into the air and drove him into the mat with their signature Triple Powerbomb and joined fists like they’ve done countless times before.

The city of Indianapolis has meant a lot to the history of The Shield since their inception. The Shield debuted at Survivor Series 2012, broke up on the Raw after Payback in 2014, and reunite three years late all in the same city.

Insiders are speculating that the reason the reunion has happened is that neither Cena nor Brock Lesnar will be around at TLC.

And just like in 2012, they'll get to make an impact at the TLC pay-per-view when they take on The Miz, Cesaro & Sheamus and Braun Strowman -- who was added in the later stages of RAW -- in a 6-Man TLC Match.
