WWE Comics #5 - Plot Synopsis

A classic american muscle car named "Shelly" was rescued by Dean from the scrap heap and has been his ride ever since. One fate fall night as the former Jon Moxley prepares to leave a WWE show, the ever faithful Shelly fails to start.
As Dean re-enters the arena to borrow some tools he runs into former Shield running mate, Roman Reigns, who had just been on the business end of a Seth Rollins Pedigree. As the discuss how to deal with their treacherous partner Ambrose notices a nameless security stooge being accosted by Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson and Rusev as he tries to guard the Money In The Bank briefcase. It is unclear why he is carrying this around at a live event, however it is evident that the contents of the case is much sought after.
Wily Ambrose manages to steal the briefcase away shortly before tossing it to Sasha Banks who is being assaulted by Charlotte Flair. Banks thwarts her assailant amidst cheesy one liners before we are thrust into a flashback of Ambrose's first encounter with the car named Shelly.
