Seth Rollins is one of the top WWE superstars, thanks above all to his union with Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose giving life to The Shield. In the latest edition of the Pod of Awesomeness podcast, the former Intercontinental champion recalled the formation of The Shield in 2012.
"Punk was looking to help turn the roster around. He saw the main roster, he saw that there were some hungry guys in NXT that sort of came up the way he did. And he also saw that there was a lot of complacency on the main roster at the.
time with a lot of the guys, especially some of the younger guys, were just kind of there and just sort of happy to be there and not trying to get better every week" - Rollins said. The shocking announcement of Roman Reigns provoked the end of The Shield and the beginning of a storyline between the two former friends Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.
Rollins continued: "The company, they loved Roman from the get go, for all the right reasons. Whatever happened in those conversations, I don’t know. Punk and Paul Heyman pitched for a security force to come up and help him, he was in the middle of program with Ryback and Ryback was like this world beater”.
