An interesting perspective is offered by Wrestling guru Dave Meltzer !
During their RAW Live Events, WWE has been on tour in the United Kingdom and The Shield has been a featured attraction. Without a central figure, “The Big Dog”, The Shield has been operating.
Triple H and Kurt Angle have become honorary members of The Shield, in the absence of Roman Reigns. This is only because the company believes that without Roman Reigns, The Shield is lacking in star power is what Dave Meltzer from Wrestling Observer reports.
For the transcript we thank Ring Side News:
Right before the TLC pay-per-view event, The Shield reunited with much hype and hoopla. To miss the big reunion, a viral outbreak sickened Roman Reigns. As an honorary member of the Hounds of Justice, Kurt Angle stepped in for Reigns.
To align with the “Hounds of Justice” at UK Live Events, Triple H and Kurt Angle donned the Shield vests.
As they believe that the star power of RAW has diminished without Roman Reigns in tow, WWE brought back legends such as Triple H and Kurt Angle.The New Day has been working at RAW Live Events in the absence of Roman Reigns, as they believe that Reigns is a major draw is what the report further speculates.
To behold and cherish, the absence of Roman Reigns brought about these once-in-a-lifetime moments. If Reigns is as big a draw as WWE thinks he really is,we do wonder.
