WWE: Will The Shield Vs. Evolution Happen At Extreme Rules?

The ending of this past Monday's edition of Raw saw Daniel Bryan on the verge of a beatdown at the hands of Triple H, Randy Orton, Batista and Kane. He was saved by The Shield, who decided it was time to officially go against the wishes of The Authority. This week's Wrestling Observer reports that prior to WrestleMania 30 there were talks of doing a Shield vs. Evolution match at some point. Battle lines were drawn as WWE set up a situation where Bryan and The Shield could face off with Triple H, Orton, Batista and Kane in some kind of 4 on 4 match in the near future. It could also lead to 3 on 3 and regular tag matches too. The reason for the Evolution stable in the first place was to have a past star (Flair) with a current star (Triple H) in position to groom future stars (Orton and Batista). Since all three guys are established now, it wouldn't be as effective. The name would likely stay the same and maybe they would add a younger guy to it, but it doesn't feel like a stable that needs to come back for the long term. Since Randy Orton and Batista appear to be on the same page as well as Triple H in the role of lead heel in the company, all signs would point to an Evolution reunion of some kind. The question is, how long would it last? Ego will get in the way. We know that. Orton has been a part of other heel alliances in the past such as when he led the Legacy group with Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase also when he teamed up with Edge to form Team Rated RKO. It was really cool to see The Shield face off with Evolution at the end of Raw. The trio of Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose all have main event potential. They've already worked with a lot of big names in their career, so the chance to go up the likes of Triple H, Batista and Orton again would be a welcome sight. They feuded with Kane a lot when he teamed with Daniel Bryan, so there's plenty of chemistry there. In somewhat related news, the New Age Outlaws are not expected back anytime soon after their loss with Kane against The Shield at WrestleMania. We may not get an answer regarding the future of Evolution for a couple of weeks since next week's Raw is scheduled to be an Ultimate Warrior tribute show. However, fans will likely be really excited whenever the next face off takes place.
