The Wyatt Family def. The Shield

MINNEAPOLIS Bray Wyatt brazenly declared that war was his favorite game in the build-up to his monstrous family’s showdown with The Shield at Elimination Chamber 2014. In a battle that was every bit the conflict it was predicted to be, Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan showed just how dominating they are on the battlefield, emerging victorious over The Hounds of Justice when Bray Wyatt floored Roman Reigns with Sister Abigail.

The capacity crowd gathered in the Target Center was on its feet in anticipation before the bell even rang, watching and waiting for the two factions to collide. The WWE Universe declared “This is awesome” before the six Superstars even came into contact with each other. Despite rumblings that there may be a crack in The Shield, Seth Rollins, United States Champion Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns stood strong in the specter of their terrifying foes before the bout.

There was nothing the lone official assigned to this bout could do to control the chaos as the two factions stared each other down. Ambrose then charged into the Wyatt Family ranks, getting a few shots in on Bray Wyatt before the eerie trio retreated from the ring.

Rollins used his speed at the official start of the contest to send Rowan staggering back into The Shield’s corner. The massive Rowan eventually steamrolled his way out, turning Rollins inside-out with a mounstrous shoulder block. The Shield’s architect soon wriggled free from Bray Wyatt’s grasp and sent Reigns into battle. From there, the juggernaut tagged Wyatt with a big right hand, which the family patriarch was more than happy to return in kind.

The Shield’s teamwork was on point at Elimination Chamber. They used quick tags to control the pace of the bout and keep The Wyatts in their corner. Though Ambrose stunned Harper with a flurry of wild strikes, Harper stopped him in his tracks with a surprising dropkick.

That allowed The Wyatts to take control, with Harper and Wyatt working over Ambrose and Rollins. Just when Harper thought he had Rollins in a precarious position on the top rope, the speedy Hound of Justice shocked him, flipping out of a German suplex off the ropes, landing on his feet. The Shield’s architect sent Harper crashing to the floor, then dove over the ropes onto the big man as the WWE Universe exploded in amazement.

The Wyatt Family def. The Shield

The might of the powerful Wyatt Family soon proved too much for the smaller Rollins to handle. Harper and Rowan pounded him into the canvas, leaving the bones to pick for Wyatt. There was little Ambrose or Reigns could do as they watched The Wyatts pick their partner apart. The unstable Ambrose tried to break up a pin, only to catch a big boot to the face from Harper.

With Reigns and the WWE Universe willing him on, Rollins scrambled to his corner and tagged in The Shield’s juggernaut. Reigns pounced into action, muscling Erick Rowan around with ease. When The Wyatts thought they had the powerhouse slowed down, Reigns outsmarted them.

The match quickly devolved into even greater anarchy; the hulking Luke Harper surprisingly dove through the ropes onto Ambrose and Wyatt, while Rollins followed up with a breathtaking leap of his own. Ambrose and Wyatt brawled over the barricade into the Target Center crowd. The Wyatt Family patriarch made his way back to ringside by himself, ready to orchestrate chaos. Bray watched as his monsters climbed atop the announcers’ table with Seth Rollins in their clutches, then slammed him viciously through the Spanish announce team’s table.

That left Reigns in the ring with all three Wyatts, where the juggernaut was seemingly outmatched. Bray Wyatt had Reigns in position for Sister Abigail, but incredibly, The Hound of Justice muscled his way out. Roman Reigns then unleashed his fury on the creepy clan, landing two Superman Punches on Rowan and Wyatt. He had Bray Wyatt sized up for the spear, but Luke Harper took the blow for his family member. That left Wyatt fresh enough to hit Sister Abigail and pin Reigns to pick up the victory for his team.

Though the WWE Universe was left in awe of the brutal match they had just witnessed, there were questions left to be answered afterward. What happened to Dean Ambrose, who disappeared after trading blows with Bray Wyatt? And though The Wyatt Family claimed victory at Elimination Chamber, will The Shield let this be the last battle in this war between WWE’s two most dominant factions?
