The Shield’s seemingly unstoppable reign of terror rolled over into the Cajundome Monday night when, just 24 hours after toppling a WWE all-star team of John Cena, Sheamus & Ryback, the trio of NXT upstarts repeated the feat against a new triumvirate of Ryback, Sheamus & Chris Jericho on Raw. It was the invaders’ first sanctioned contest under the Raw banner, but they were just as cohesive and deadly as the night before, when they employed a coordinated plan of attack to defeat three of WWE’s most powerful Superstars.

The added wrinkle of Jericho – whom The Shield had not faced before – did initially prove to be an initial blessing for the incumbent Superstars in their effort to stave off their opponents. An early sequence where Jericho went toe-to-toe against Ambrose seemed to stall the momentum of The Shield, and Ryback nearly sealed the match when he went one-on-one with Rollins a few moments later. Roman Reigns reversed the momentum when he cut Ryback down with a spear and the trio administered a beating so severe that Ryback was only barely able to tag Jericho in. The Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla sprinted into the match with fresh legs and applied the Walls of Jericho to Dean Ambrose, but Seth Rollins descended on Jericho with a springboard knee to the head while Reigns distracted the referee, allowing Ambrose to cover Y2J and keep The Shield’s undefeated streak alive.
