The Shield defeated the super team of John Cena, Ryback and Sheamus at the Elimination Chamber. The ending was a bit of a shock. Ryback prepared to Shell Shock Seth Rollins when Roman Reigns gave the WWE's hungriest superstar a hellacious spear. Rollins covered Ryback for the win.
The match was great, and Dean Ambrose sold like he was Shawn Michaels.
If any of the super friends were to take the fall, I figured it'd be Sheamus, not Ryback, who was clearly hurt by his losses to CM Punk. But maybe this sets up a Ryback heel turn, as the disgusted beast walked out on Cena and Sheamus after the match.
Where is The Shield storyline going? It's not clear. But WWE kept the three men strong, and didn't kill them off (remember the Nexus at SummerSlam?).
