Will The Shield Reunite To Help Braun Strowman? Or Will It Be The Wyatts?
Elimination Chamber boasted another no-disqualification match between Baron Corbin and Braun Strowman, a match that already happened back at TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs and saw Strowman cost Corbin his job as the Constable of Monday Night RAW.
The result was very different last night in Houston as Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley made their way to the ring to take advantage of the no-disqualification stipulation and then triple powerbombed Braun Strowman through two tables.
While this means that Lashley, Corbin and McIntyre are back on the same page, it could have also been a tongue in cheek hint that The Shield could be making a return.
According to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer, Strowman needs two partners and since Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose are now on the same page they could answer the call.
“So they did The Shield powerbomb on [Strowman] and they made a point to tell you, they didn’t just tell you that they did. I don’t know what that means. Maybe Dean Ambrose ends up on the Braun Strowman team, I don’t know. Whatever, I mean it looks like Braun Strowman’s gonna need one or two partners against these guys,” he said via Ringsidenews.
Another rumor that is making the rounds is about the re-union of The Wyatt Family. It has been recently reported that Luke Harper was present backstage during SmackDown last week and Bray Wyatt is also reportedly cleared by the medical team and waiting to get back in to the ring. This could be the right storyline for them to make their return as WWE currently lacks a powerful face stable.
Is It Time For Bobby Lashley And Lio Rush To Part Ways?
Elimination Chamber predictably saw Lio Rush cost Bobby Lashley the Intercontinental Championship in his match against Finn Balor. Following the match, Rush was attacked by Lashley as it appeared that The All Mighty was turning face, but the reunion of the stable which includes McIntyre and Corbin proved that this wasn’t the case.
According to The Wrestling Observer, Lashley no longer needs Lio Rush if he’s part of a stable, which could be why the two men have now parted ways.
“I think the deal is because obviously because it looked like he turned, but it’s very clear that he didn’t because he did that run-in later with Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre that those three guys are going to be a heel group,” he said via Ringsidenews.
