The Shield has dominated the WWE locker room since arriving on the scene back in November at the Survivor Series. The Shield have administered their brand of justice on WWE’s leading superstars, and have overcome the best WWE has had to offer in six-man tag team matches. Now The Shield have their sights set on WWE championship gold.
With the current rivalry with WWE Tag Team champions Team Hell No, The Shield have been vocal on their intentions of becoming the next champions. However, unlike Mexico and Japan, WWE does not have Trios Tag Team championships, so one member of The Shield will be without a championship. Unless if The Shield applies The Freebird rule where any two of the three members can defend the championships at a given time.
The word going around the IWC is that this week’s SmackDown taping have suggested that at Extreme Rules Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns will challenge for the Tag Team titles while Dean Ambrose will take on Kofi Kingston for the WWE United States championship.
It’s no secret that WWE is grooming and testing the waters with Dean Ambrose as a singles competitor. With his recent main event matches with The Undertaker and Kane on consecutive SmackDowns, Dean Ambrose is clearly impressing WWE higher-ups. Not to mention a major nod by former WWE champion CM Punk, who actually wrestled Ambrose on a non-televised FCW show last summer.
Dean Ambrose’s unorthodox style of wrestling, unique facial expressions, demeanor, and mic skills is exactly who the WWE should be investing in at this time. Not since CM Punk has there been a WWE talent with promise to be a main event draw. But, unlike Punk circa 2005, hopefully WWE realizes how much of a commodity Dean Ambrose actually is and not wait five years to realize it.
If the rumors are true and at Exreme Rules The Shield challenges for WWE championships, then it is a strong possibility that at the end of the night The Shield will all be holding WWE championship gold.
