Spoilers: This post contains spoilers for tonight’s Old School RAW!
Tonight’s Old School RAW has nothing but potential with the return of so many WWE legends and former superstars on tap for tonight on top of the on-going storylines. One of the confirmed legends for tonight’s show is Rowdy Roddy Piper and he is said to play a huge role tonight.
According to PWInsider.com Forums, the plan as of last week was for Piper to return with a Piper’s Pit segment tonight on RAW. The guests of course are none other than the members of The Shield.
According to the report, the plan is to tease the tensions between Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins. WWE has teased some of this tension in previous weeks, but this could where the split of Reigns from the faction begins to become a major storyline.
Should WWE move on the split of the Shield – or Reigns from the faction I should say – Mason Ryan is rumored to be called up from NXT to fill that third role with the faction.
Piper hasn’t appeared on WWE television since RAW 1,000 in 2012 when he last hosted Piper’s Pit with Chris Jericho as the guest before Dolph Ziggler interrupted.
