This week’s episode of RAW aired live from Bankers Life Fieldhouse arena in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was the second-to-last episode of RAW before WWE TLC 2017 on October 22nd. Here are 7 takeaways from this week’s WWE RAW:
7The Shield Is Officially Back
The Miz came down to the ring and announced that he was giving out some Mizzie awards tonight. Curtis Axel was awarded a Mizzie of perseverance and the crowd chanted “you deserve it!”. Axel dedicated the Mizzie to Bo Dallas. The Mizzie for best supporting actors went to Sheamus and Cesaro.
Sheamus and Cesaro made their way to the ring to accept the award. Sheamus and Cesaro thanked Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose for making this all possible. The Miz bragged about their attack on Roman Reigns. The Miz then gave himself a Mizzie and dedicated it to his unborn child and to every future child out there that needs a new role model.
Roman Reigns came down to the entrance ramp and told The Miz to shut up. Reigns added that he will give them one chance to get out of his ring. The Miz stated that the rumors of The Shield reuniting are just like Reigns, they are nothing but hype. Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins then joined Reigns on the entrance ramp. The Shield made their way to the ring and beatdown everyone besides The Miz who rolled out of the ring to avoid them. Rollins and Reigns chased after The Miz outside the ring. Miz got back into the ring and Ambrose planted him with Dirty Deeds. The Shield then hit the Triple Powerbomb and posed in the ring.
The Miz was shown later during RAW receiving medical attention backstage. RAW GM Kurt Angle showed up and announced the main event for WWE TLC 2017. The Shield will face The Miz, Sheamus & Cesaro in a TLC.
The crowd absolutely loved seeing The Shield reunion. I haven’t heard a pop like that in a long time. I’m glad that The Shield is back, it makes RAW interesting while we wait for Brock Lesnar to come back and defend his Universal Championship.
