Hounds of justice
Having achieved justice, The Shield has departed WWE.

Having finally instilled justice in World Wrestling Entertainment, as per their stated mission, the members of The Shield quietly departed the company yesterday without incident.

“We apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused while bringing justice to WWE,” said a note stuck to a locker room door.

“Now that justice has been restored, our work here is done.”

The faction — Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns — burst onto the WWE scene in November 2012, vowing to crusade against a poorly defined set of perceived “injustices” within the promotion.

Meting out their particular brand of justice involved filming shaky handheld videos, entering arenas through the cheap seats, and triple-powerbombing ambushed victims through tables.

It is unclear how, exactly, these actions could be construed as “justice,” but the trio seems to be satisfied with their handiwork.

Yesterday afternoon, three SWAT Team uniforms were returned to a costume shop in Stamford, CT.
