WWE Monday Night RAW opened with the Intercontinental Champion The Miz and Curtis Axel in the ring for another MizTV segment. WWE sure isn’t wasting time with whatever direction they’re using The Miz and burgeoning The Shield reunion. Bo Dallas is noticeably absent due to injury but he received a nice shout out. Miz gave another set of Mizzies Awards to Axel, Cesaro, Sheamus, and himself and each spoke about how they took down Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and Seth Rollins last week. Miz has been great on the mic during this segment!
Reigns finally appeared with a good pop from the crowd. Were there some boos? A little bit but not as much as usual. Perhaps the crowd thought it was the theme for The Shield’s united appearance? Reigns said the Shield reunion isn’t a rumor, which brought a nice pop. Dean Ambrose’s music hit and we hear a big pop from the crowd. Seth Rollins’ music hits and we get another pop. The Shield then walk down the ramp together and that easily gets another pop! This crowd definitely wants their Shield! The Shield take out Cesaro, Sheamus, Axel, and Miz, giving the Intercontinental Champion the ol’ Shield powerbomb. Reigns’ music plays as Michael Cole and Corey Graves overly hypes the reunion as the first segment ends after 21 minutes. Cole asked if you ever thought you’d see Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns together again. It was inevitable. The only question was when.
Nearly 20-minutes later, Miz is with the backstage medics, where RAW General Manager Kurt Angle gives him some pay-per-view main-event news: Miz, Cesaro, and Sheamus vs. The Shield in a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match at the TLC pay per view. The timing couldn’t be more perfect since TLC was the pay per view where The Shield made their in-ring debut in 2012. I guess this means we won’t see the Intercontinental Championship, and obviously the Universal Championship, defended at the next RAW pay per view.
As the night progressed, the TLC main event did encounter a big change.
