During last night’s broadcast (August 12, 2013) of Monday Night RAW, The Shield (Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins) issued an open challenge to any tandem on the roster to challenge them for the WWE Tag Team Championship at SummerSlam this Sunday.
Later in the night, while surrounding the ring after the No. 1 contenders battle royal for a shot at the United States Championship, The Big Show would make his triumphant return and join Rob Van Dam (the new No. 1 contender) and Mark Henry (who was standing with Van Dam in the ring at the time), forcing the three members of The Shield to retreat.
While it has yet to be officially announced, it would appear that The Big Show will team with “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry to challenge The Shield for the Tag Team Championship at SummerSlam.
