There’s been a lot of talk recently about The Shield returning as a group in WWE. This is mostly due to the growing alliance between Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose.
Honestly, I don’t feel as though this is something which will happen any time soon, if it does. Not of any fault of Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose, but mostly because Seth Rollins is still knee deep in his whole storyline with The Authority.
However, that being said. There’s no doubt that The Authority will drop Seth Rollins at some point, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a Shield reunion at some point once that happens. It is definitely something that the fans want, and it was likely the only really strong faction of recent years.
I would love to see The Shield back in action. However, I’m also not quite sure what they would do with them. Perhaps, Ambrose and Reigns will help Seth Rollins get his own back on The Authority, and there will be a whole “The Shield vs The Authority” segment.
I also wouldn’t rule out a match between Seth Rollins and Triple H in the future. It just seems like a bit of a story line made in heaven. I would almost be willing to bet money on this happening in the future.
Another issue with The Shield return, is that it kind of ruins the push that each of the individual members have been receiving, and they will then be clumped together again. I’d imagine this would be a good thing for Reigns and Ambrose, as they haven’t really had much success the past month. They haven’t been really pushing up for the higher echelons in the WWE. However, I’d imagine that a return of The Shield would be a bit of a step down for Seth Rollins.
I personally don’t view Seth Rollins as a huge figure in the future, however, I also understand that that’s personal preference. I just don’t enjoy his matches that much. On the other hand, this could be linked to the fact that almost every single one of his matches since Wrestlemania, he has managed to crawl out of or be rescued, or something has happened to cause him to win. Which just annoys me after a while.
It’s similar to the fact that I’m getting a little bored of Brock Lesnar. I just remember the Brock Lesnar I used to watch back in like 2003, who was doing backflips, and generally just more than a thousand German suplexes per match. The gimmick was cool at first, but it is starting to get tired!
