As previously reported, Dean Ambrose is out of action with an injury and is expected to miss up to nine months of in-ring action. Since Ambrose’s injury, there have been significant amount of changes to several television storylines and it now looks like one plan the company had in mind could be nixed altogether.
WWE was originally planning a Shield reunion tour at WWE Live Events, which has already been pushed back once after Roman Reigns caught the mumps a couple months back. Ambrose’s recent injury may have now halted those plans altogether now.
The belief is once Ambrose returns from his injury in nine months, Roman Reigns will already be WWE Universal Champion, so it wouldn’t make much sense to do the tour because the idea behind The Shield’s reunion in the first place was to help get Reigns over more before they decided to put the title on him.
