Roman Reigns faced The Miz tonight on RAW for the Intercontinental Championship. Before the match even got started, Reigns attacked Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel. Reigns got his revenge on them for last week and beat them down with a steel chair on the entrance ramp. The Miz was then shown with a concerned look on his face as Roman marched towards the ring.
Reigns dominated The Miz during the match and connected with a Superman Punch. The Miz kicked out at two but Roman remained on the attack. Reigns was gearing up for the Spear but was attacked from behind by Sheamus and Cesaro. The Miz was then disqualified and retained his Intercontinental Championship.
Sheamus, Cesaro and The Miz then beatdown Reigns and planted him with a Powerbomb. The trio posed in the ring over Reigns and mocked The Shield by fist-bumping. Sheamus and Cesaro had already attacked both The Miz and Seth Rollins earlier on RAW.
Just before RAW went off the air, Reigns was shown backstage clutching at his ribs in pain. He was approached by Dean Ambrose and then Rollins followed shortly after. The Superstars didn’t say a word to each other, but instead simply nodded their heads. Sheamus and Cesaro will be guests on Miz TV next week.
It was originally thought that The Shield would reunite to face The Miz and The Miztourage. However, it looks like Sheamus and Cesaro have joined The Miz in the battle against The Shield. WWE TLC will air on October 22nd. It appears that we will see The Shield versus The Miz, Sheamus and Cesaro at the PPV but that has not been confirmed yet.
