Bengaluru, December 4: The Bar Vs The Shield are scheduled to face each other for the Raw tag team championship tonight on Monday Night Raw that will emanate from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
The pair of teams were supposed to fight last week on Raw, but due to unforeseeable circumstances, the fight didn't happen.
Last week, two superstars missed WWE Raw due to personal reasons and one of them was a member of the Shield, Dean Ambrose who went on a honeymoon with his partner, WWE host, Renee Young. While the other was a member of the Bar, Sheamus who was away in Ireland to take a yearly sabbatical.
Both of them are expected to be back tonight to feature in a big-time main event when WWE Raw goes Hollywood.
Going by recent reports, there is a huge possibility to see the title change hands, tonight. Sheamus gave an update that he is dealing with an injury for a while now and this has been bothering the Celtic Warrior for the past six months.
According to his words, he is suffering from stenosis in his neck which is an abnormal narrowing of a body channel for which he has to undergo a rehab session on a daily basis. Due to the rigorous schedule of the WWE, the veteran superstar was forced to work with this injury.
This is what The Celtic Warrior had to say via his Youtube Channel,
“So, for the last 6 months, I’ve been suffering from serious stenosis; neck issues. Today I’m gonna talk about rehab and recovery.”

If this injury worsens for the five-time WWE Champion, then he will be forced to take a time-off from his WWE schedule. In this case, a title change is evident on tonight's WWE Raw where Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins will win the tag titles for the third time.
Roman Reigns winning the Intercontinental Championship is another indication of a potential title change. His brethren from the Shield are also expected to carry gold around their waists from tonight. In the absence of the Universal Champion, these three are expected to be the highlight of the Raw brand.
