In the same city they debuted and disbanded, The Shield last night reunited on Monday Night Raw and immediately went to work on righting some of the red brands wrongs.
After last week’s backstage tease, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose wasted little time in getting the band back together. Interrupting The Miz and his Miz TV guests Sheamus and Cesaro, to confirm their reconciliation with a vintage Shield attack on the men that took them out seven days ago.

The trio wasn’t finished there however, as later night in the night after Braun Strowman had defeated Matt Hardy, The Hounds of Justice sought retribution on The Monster Among Men and attacked him after the match. The three on one beat-down was too much for Strowman and he became the first victim of the newly reunited Shield and their trademark triple Powerbomb through a table.

The night’s main event for the third week running belonged to the Cruiserweight division, and a new champion was crowded. With the entire roster surrounding the ring, Kalisto defeated Enzo Amore in a Lumberjack Match to become the new Cruiserweight Champion.

Today we woke up in a world where Enzo Amore is no longer the #Cruiserweight Champion.

Elsewhere Emma won the right to face Asuka at TLC in two weeks after winning a Five-way Elimination Match, Alexa Bliss continued her mocking of Mickie James’ age ahead of their TLC meeting, and Bray Wyatt somehow morphed into Sister Abigail as he and Finn Bálor continued their weird war of words.
