The Shield have been feuding with Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre over the past few months and it was hoped that these three stars would push Dean Ambrose’s rumored heel turn but it hasn’t worked out that way.
Last week on Raw, Strowman, Ziggler, and McIntyre seemingly imploded after a miscue from The Scottish star saw him hit Strowman with a Claymore Kick and knock him out of the ring.
After their loss to The Shield, Strowman went after Ziggler and was then saved by McIntyre once again as it appears that the trio could now have gone their separate ways.
Reports now suggest that WWE doesn’t have any future plans for these stars and is instead allowing the heel turn for Ambrose to slow burn over the next few months because WrestleMania matches aren’t yet considered to be a lock.
This means that Rollins and Ambrose’s match that was scheduled to take place at WrestleMania 34 before Ambrose was sidelined with a tricep tear, may not happen at WrestleMania 35. This is because if The Rock doesn’t return to face Roman Reigns then the WWE Universe could instead see a triple threat match between all three Shield members for the first time since Battleground 2016.
The end game for this feud is reportedly not booked as of yet with WWE instead booking on a week-to-week basis which would allow them to monitor the fan reactions and change any upcoming plans accordingly.
This obviously makes the entire feud much less predictable, but at the same time, it appears that the Dean Ambrose heel turn teases have only just begun and many fans will be on the edge of their seats wondering when it will finally happen for the next few months.
