#92 Team Hell No & Randy Orton vs. The Shield: SmackDown, June 14, 2013
The Shield debuted at Survivor Series 2012 and carved a path of destruction that appeared to have no end in sight. In this Friday night clash, however, the trio would finally be stopped. In the midst of complete disorder with bodies flying everywhere, Kane hurled Seth Rollins off the top rope and into the waiting RKO of The Viper. While the WWE Universe was still catching its breath, Daniel Bryan snapped in the “No!” Lock and made his black-clad adversary tap out. The victory put to rest the idea that Bryan was a “weak link” and proved The Shield could be beaten. — MITCH PASSERO
#46 Team Hell No & Ryback vs. The Shield – TLC Match: WWE TLC 2012
Has there ever been a better coming-out party in WWE history than that of The Shield? Not only did Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns formally debut by going after the biggest, baddest dog in the yard (that’d be Ryback), but their first match was against that same guy,andthe most dominant Tag Team Champions since D-Generation X, in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match in WWE’s Brooklyn debut.
If you want glorious, Attitude-Era chaos in the PG Era, check out this match, which featured some inspired steel chair work and a wince-inducing tumble through three tables by Seth Rollins en route to a Shield victory from which The Hounds of Justice never looked back. — ANTHONY BENIGNO
#38 The Shield vs. The Wyatt Family: Elimination Chamber 2014
Believe in The Shield or follow the buzzards? That was the question on the minds of many in the WWE Universe throughout the winter of 2014. In the weeks leading up to the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, The Wyatt Family cost the members of The Shield an opportunity to compete inside the sinister structure for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. But as Bray emphatically told the Hounds of Justice, “I welcome this war!” The buzzards eliminated Dean Ambrose and put Seth Rollins through an announce table before Bray pinned Roman Reigns for the victory and solidified The Wyatts as a dark, commanding presence within WWE. — GREG ADKINS
The Shield vs. The Usos – WWE Tag Team Championship Match (Money in the Bank Kickoff 2013)
“One match that kind of goes under the radar a bit – and it is notable because I’ve seen it kind of talked about from time to time, commonly referred to as an underrated match – is our Kickoff match against The Usos in the [WWE] Tag Team Championship Match at Money in the Bank last year. It was me and Roman against The Usos and it was one of our first pay-per-views where we weren’t on the actual pay-per-view, and I know I took that very personally. As someone who fancies himself as a star and as a big name and always brings the heavy wood when it’s pay-per-view time, to be left off was really disappointing, so we all wanted to steal the show. We all wanted to make them take notice like, ‘Hey, you’re not leaving me off another show.’ Being on the Kickoff’s not a bad thing; you have a lot of time, you’re the first match, the first thing the crowd sees. We took advantage of that, and it was pretty awesome.” – SETH ROLLINS
#3 The Shield vs. Randy Orton & Team Hell No: June 14, 2013
It’s hard to imagine Daniel Bryan, Kane and Randy Orton coexisting, but the trio somehow cooperated to give The Shield their first Six-Man Tag Team Match loss in June 2013. At the time, The Hounds of Justice were unstoppable, having won the WWE Tag Team Titles and the United States Championship by way of their military precision and a ruthless disregard for their opponents. After dominating throughout the match, The Shield was forced on the defensive when Kane unleashed on Dean Ambrose with a fiery barrage. With a blind tag, Bryan continued the assault by sending all three Shield members outside the ring and then throwing himself at his dazed opponents with reckless abandon. After Kane took out Reigns and Orton stunned Rollins with an aerial RKO, Bryan made The Architect tap out.
“They caught us that night, what can I say?” Rollins told WWE.com. “It was actually a little bit of a relief to get that first loss out of the way, because there’s a lot of pressure that comes with being undefeated.”
Even though Rollins admit that The Shield was off its game that night, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more exciting and competitive Six-Man Tag Team Match. — JAMES WORTMAN
Have you ever wondered what happens backstage at SmackDown? Now’s your chance to find out, with this behind-the-scenes gallery featuring Superstars like The Rock, Edge, Jeff Hardy and Rey Mysterio, and celebrities like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ozzy Osbourne!
Weird? Sure. Unsettling? Definitely. Hilarious? Debatable. In a fit of delirium, WWE.com subjected Jack Swagger, Zeb Colter, Brie Bella, Daniel Bryan and more to these Superstar Face Swaps. Embrace the bizarre!
Too soon? The WWE Universe is largely (and justly) still a little raw from Seth Rollins stabbing his boys in the back a few months ago, and what makes the former Architect’s bait-and-switch all the worse is that he was also one-half of The Hounds of Justice’s record-setting tag team coalition alongside Roman Reigns. Holding the twin titles with Roman Reigns for 145 days, these two not only proved they could survive outside the more secure six-man stipulation that was The Shield’s specialty, it also helped mold Reigns into the five-tool annihilator the WWE Universe sees today. For proof, take a look at the 2013 Money in the Bank Kickoff title defense against The Usos, a heartstopper of a match that shows just what these two guys were about, and why we may never see their like again for a long, long time. Believe it.
