This week on Raw, Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre started to tease that Dean Ambrose could be set to turn on The Shield since he is the only member of the group who doesn’t currently hold championship gold.
Ambrose has only been back on WWE TV for a month after he suffered a bicep tear back in 2017 and was sidelined for almost eight months. According to The Wrestling Observer, the former World Champion was originally set to turn heel on The Shield as part of their last reunion, which could be why WWE has allowed the trio to reunite once again so that Ambrose can then turn on his two best friends.
Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose have had a storied history between them, which is why many fans expect Ambrose to be the one to turn on Rollins this time and lead to a feud where Ambrose is the heel and Rollins is the face, which would be the opposite of their last feud.
Originally, the duo was scheduled to go one-on-one at WrestleMania earlier this year, but Ambrose’s injury meant that WWE had to change all of their plans, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a plan for this match to happen at WrestleMania 35 instead.
The fact that WWE is teasing a heel turn right now means that it’s unlikely that it will happen at any point in the near future and since the TLC pay-per-view in December is already advertising The Shield as a unit in the main event of the show, Ambrose isn’t expected to turn heel until 2019 which would allow his feud with Rollins to run through WrestleMania season.
