Jon Cena, Sheamus, & Ryback vs. The Shield

The triumvirate of John Cena, Sheamus, and Ryback seek to end The Shield’s campaign of justice.

The road to Elimination Chamber

The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, & Roman Reigns) first made their presence known at Survivor Series (Nov. 18) when they attacked Ryback during his Triple Threat Match with John Cena and CM Punk for the WWE Championship. They have been on a rampage throughout WWE, taking out whomever they see as being part of WWE's systematic injustice of the system.

No single person has been on the receiving end of The Shield’s vicious form of justice more than Ryback. He has had two WWE Championship matches interrupted by The Shield and has been the victim of their assaults more than any other superstar on the roster. As The Shield has expanded the scope of their campaign over the past two months, taking out Randy Orton, The Miz, Kane, Tommy Dreamer, Brad Maddox, Ricardo Rodriguez, Sin Cara, Brodus Clay, Tensai, and The Rock, Ryback has gained some help in his quest for vengeance in the form of John Cena and Sheamus.

The alliance of Cena, Sheamus, & Ryback have been working together as a team the past two weeks in their attempts to stop the Shield. On Feb. 4 episode of Monday Night Raw, John Cena informed the WWE Universe -- along with The Shield -- they have drawn a line in the sand at Elimination Chamber.

What’s at stake?

A win for the team of John Cena, Ryback, & Sheamus would deal a major blow to the Shield's campaign and give all three men a significant boost heading into Wrestlemania. If they can pull out a victory, there may be hope to return a semblance of order to Raw and Smackdown. Failure to do so will allow The Shield to cause chaos throughout WWE.

The Shield is an ever present threat to the roster. A win for The Shield at Elimination Chamber would mean the removal of their greatest enemies and a victory over the three biggest symbols of injustice in WWE. A loss, though, and the trio might be making their way back down NXT in Tampa, Florida.
