The Shield def. Tons of Funk & Kofi Kingston

Just three nights removed from defeating Randy Orton, Sheamus and Big Show at WrestleMania 29, the treacherous trio known as The Shield invaded WWE Main Event and squared off with Tons of Funk and Kofi Kingston. The black-clad group — consisting of Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose — are looking to make an even bigger impact in WWE following their victory on The Grandest Stage of Them All. On Raw, they set their sights on The Undertaker, but regrouped once Kane and Daniel Bryan came to The Deadman’s aid.

Clearly, The Shield has shown their fearlessness when facing larger and more experienced opponents — a fact highlighted by their bout on WWE Main Event. Since their formation, Tons of Funk has been on a roll, and adding Kofi Kingston to their ranks for this bout brought forth a new, high-flying dynamic to the team.

The Shield are the masters of cohesion, however, and have thus far proven to be a formidable triad under any circumstances. The three brash Superstars controlled much of the bout, displaying the type of intensity and teamwork that helped earn them a victory on The Grandest Stage of Them All. That same unity is also what led to their victory on Main Event. With Tensai knocked to the outside, Rollins took down Kingston with a flying knee off the top rope. To prevent Clay from breaking up the three-count, Reigns took The Funkasaurus out with a powerful spear, allowing Rollins to pick up the win.

Following the contest, The Shield decimated their opponents and displayed their aggression and power by powerbombing both members of Tons of Funk.
