Reigns hinted at a much-anticipated character switch after he successfully defended the Universal Championship for the first time against Finn Balor.
Braun Strowman was ready to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase on The Big Dog but then The Shield’s signature music echoed around the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and Ambrose as well as Rollins came out in full Hounds of Justice gear to the champion’s aid.
The three of them attacked Strowman who managed to fight them off for a few seconds until Reigns grounded him a with a vicious Spear.
The Shield then put The Monster Among Men away with their signature Triple Power Bomb as they slammed him through the announce desk.
Many thought The Hounds of Justice turned into bad guys as they assaulted one of the most popular superstars in all of WWE.
However, WWE released footage after RAW went off the air that showed the legendary trio exchanging fist bumps with the audience.
Reigns also replied to a tweet by RAW and Smackdown announcer Corey Graves who praised The Shield’s return.
The Big Dog thanked the Brooklyn crowd for their energy and insists he is very grateful for sharing so many amazing experiences with the WWE Universe.
The Universal Champion tweeted: “So thankful to Brooklyn for bringing that crazy energy all weekend. Last night was!!!!!! So grateful you’re always out there with us to experience these moments.”
Therefore, it seems like the popular stable members haven’t changed their characters and will continue to perform as babyfaces.
WWE seem to have been putting the pieces back together for another reunion ever since Ambrose finally returned from an arm injury that kept him sidelined for eight months.
The Lunatic Fringe joined forces with Rollins and helped him regain the Intercontinental Championship from Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam.
Reigns then won the Universal Championship when he finally dethroned Brock Lesnar with three Spears in an intense battle.
The Shield now look stronger than ever as they hold two of RAW’s most prestigious titles.
The red brand’s biggest stars will now have to double their efforts in order to put gold around their waist.
