Back in the ring, Bryan mustered two consecutive “No!” Locks on Rollins, which — had they not been interrupted by Reigns — may have brought the match to a close. Reigns’ interference inspired Orton to join the fray, and that’s when things truly got messy.

The Viper tried RKO’ing Reigns but the powerhouse threw Orton into Bryan. Orton then sidestepped Reigns’ freight-train-like spear, causing Bryan to be cut in half. Orton succeeded in dropping Reigns with the RKO, but Rollins ran in, disposed of Orton and landed a frightening leaping stomp on Bryan’s skull for the pinfall.

The loss represents a devastating setback for Orton & Bryan. Not only was the duo on the verge of winning championship gold, but Orton & Bryan also appeared, finally, to be moving past the tumult that impaired their previous outings as a tag team. How will this blow affect their relationship going forward? Judging by Orton’s frustrated body language after the match — his arms akimbo and his countenance screaming “disappointment” — could the characteristically ornery Viper place the blame on the Superstar who’s battled his own feelings of being a “weak link”?

More important to the WWE tag team division at large, what’s next in store for The Shield contingent of Reigns & Rollins? Having turned back a high-power team the caliber of Orton & Bryan, where does “The Hounds of Justice’s” thunder-and-lightning duo go from here?
