Seth Rollins has given his take on the possibility of whether The Shield could team up one final time.
It was the 2012 Survivor Series where The Shield first made their presence felt, as Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose entered through the crowd to ensure CM Punk retained the WWE Championship in his triple-threat match against John Cena and Ryback.
The unity between the trio lasted for almost two years, when Seth Rollins betrayed his fellow ‘Hounds Of Justice’ members to side with Triple H in June 2014.
Although there have been sporadic reunions, they have generally been few and far between and there is now an even slimmer chance of it happening given Jon Moxley’s move to AEW.
Seth Rollins, in a conversation with Digital Spy, has confirmed what many would expect and doesn’t believe the trio will team again, citing the level all three men are now at.
I can say that, and maybe this might come back to bite me at some point, but I just don’t think you’re ever going to see the three of us team up ever again.
It wouldn’t look the way you want it to look. It wouldn’t be like the old days in The Shield, it would be a different animal. I think we’re all just too big stars with too big personalities at this point.
We needed each other back then and now none of us need the other one. We’re at a point where we’re all standalone stars on a different level. So to have to kind of minimize that to fit into each other’s moulds, I just don’t see it ever happening again. I think it would look a whole lot different than the next time you see us together.
Continuing on, Rollins did say there is one time that he can see The Shield getting together again, but it won’t be for a match.
The next time you see us together it’s going to be when we’re inducted into the Hall of Fame. That’s going to be it.
The next major contest for Seth Rollins will come at SummerSlam, where he is set to face Riddle. On the same night, Roman Reigns will defend the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar against Brock Lesnar in a Last Man Standing match. Over in AEW, Jon Moxley is the interim World Champion and awaiting the return of CM Punk.
