Seth Rollins Regrets How WWE Handled Some Of The Shield's Reunions
Seth Rollins talks about WWE's handling of Shield reunions, including one moment in particular.
Speaking to Bleacher Report, WWE's Seth Rollins spoke about the breakup of The Shield, and explained that its abrupt nature actually helped the development of himself, Roman Reigns and Jon Moxley (then Dean Ambrose.)
"You can look back at the breakup and say I wish we would've done that and be more prepared, but being forced to swim in the deep water as individuals was what helped us. We had to learn and grow and just figure it out. That learning process was important in its own way."
However, Seth did admit that some of The Shield's multiple WWE reunions could have been handled better, explaining:
"I guess one regret would've been managing some of the reunions a little bit better, and some of that was out of our control and there was nothing we could do. [...] It's not ideal to have Kurt Angle in a Shield costume, but desperate times call for desperate measures, so we made the best of it - and there's something to be said for putting people in that role and being able to have the equity to do that."
Rollins is likely referring to the match at TLC 2017, where in the absence of Reigns, he and Ambrose teamed with Kurt Angle in a 5-on-3 handicap match against Braun Strowman, Kane, Miz, Sheamus and Cesaro.
