WWE

For the first time in over three years, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose stood together as The Shield Monday night on Raw in Indianapolis. In the same arena in which they debuted in 2012, and the same building where they broke up in 2014, Rollins, Reigns and Ambrose laid waste to Curtis Axel, Cesaro and Sheamus before turning their attentions to The Miz. They ended their attack by executing their patented triple powerbomb and brought their fists together. Their much-anticipated return could come on Oct. 22 at the TLC pay-per-view. Their last match together as a trio came on June 1, 2014 at Payback in Chicago, when they defeated Evolution.

On Ronda Rousey

WWE

After being served with a cease and desist from the WWE over their use of the 'Too Sweet' hand gesture on TV and on merchandise, the Young Bucks are auctioning off their ring-used tights with the gesture printed on them on eBay. All of the proceeds from the sale of both sets of tights, sold together, will be donated to a children's hospital in Atlanta; the bid, as of Friday afternoon, sat at $1,775. "Seeing how we'll obviously no longer be able to use these tights, we have decided to turn a negative into a positive and give back. We have chosen Children's Healthcare of Atlanta to receive 100% of the funds raised in our eBay auction," said Matt Jackson. "We decided to give back to this particular hospital, because we were so touched by the children and hospital staff we spent some time with during our recent visit."
