In the case of the Shield, we are angry, hungrier and more focused than they have ever been. Dean Ambrose says that they do not care if they beat them up. This Sunday at Payback, it’s no holds barred and they will find out how far they are willing to go. How crazy are you willing to get? They better bring everything they got and it’s going to get real ugly. Not only is this match no holds barred only, but also elimination. They will pick each member off and Triple H left by himself and surrounded by the hounds of Justice. They will finish the job and at Payback the end of Evolution will be done. Roman Reigns says that putting him through a table was a big mistakes. He will destroy every announce table they have available, believe that! Believe in the Shield.
