It looks like this Shield reunion was in the plan for a long time. Now we have to wonder why the people with “Insider” information didn’t call this one when they could have. After all, it does make sense if you’re wanting people to cheer Reigns.
WWE was ready even if we weren’t because they’ve already thrown 3 new Shield t-shirts out there for the market. Of course, they have the money to make a shirt or 3 and scrap them quickly, but this could be a sign that the 2018 Shield reunion could be a big deal.
One of the shirts also says “Brooklyn” on it too so yeah… this was the plan for a while. For what it’s worth, they’ve never stopped selling Shield merch and often have those shirts available at house shows even during Ambrose’s injury.
