Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose may have to defend their Tag Team Championships on Raw tonight against two of their TLC opponents.
Last week, we witnessed what turned out to be a pretty special edition of Monday Night Raw. Proceedings had barely gotten underway when Roman Reigns interrupted Miz TV to reveal that he, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose buried the hatchet and got the old band back together. Not only did The Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro, and Curtis Axel feel the reformed Shield's wrath, but so did Braun Strowman later in the evening.

The chaos that began Raw last week resulted in General Manager Kurt Angle booking the main event for the upcoming pay per view, TLC. The Shield will compete in their first match in three and a half years against four of the five men that they clashed with, Curtis Axel not included. Tonight on Raw is the go home for TLC, of course, and you can definitely expect fireworks between all seven men.
According to PWInsider, there are two major segments planned involving the seven men on Raw tonight. The Monster Among Men will reportedly be appearing on Miz TV, and what's more, there will also be a title match. Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose will defend their title against Sheamus and Cesaro, otherwise known as The Bar.
The feud between the champions and the former holders of the titles extends back far further than just last week. The Architect and The Lunatic originally reunited in order to take down the European pair, and it was The Bar's alignment with The Miz that gave the champions and Roman Reigns a common cause to reunite for.
So, these are some big angles heading into Raw tonight, and a huge Tag Team Title match that could very well shake the foundations of the newly reformed Shield just seven days after they announced that they're all back on the same page. If Sheamus and Cesaro do manage to defeat Rollins and Ambrose tonight, it will certainly give their team the edge heading into TLC. Then again, if they use underhanded tactics in order to win those championships then that will only add fuel to the fire when it comes to the feud between all seven men.
