The Shield debuted in a massive way at the Survivor Series pay-per-view on November 18th, 2012. The ominous trio of Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose went on an undefeated streak for a couple of months. The group eventually folded after Rollins turned on the group in 2014.
The Hounds of Justice had a short-lived televised reunion in 2017. The trio feuded with the likes of Drew McIntyre, Dolph Zigger, Sheamus and other heels on Raw. The group disbanded once again after Reigns got diagnosed with leukemia in 2018. Ambrose left WWE shortly afterwords.
The Shield was arguably the most dominant faction WWE came up with since the Evolution. Fans were thrilled when the group reunited in 2017. However, according to Seth Rollins, fans might never see the three team up again. The Architect of the Shield talked about the group during an interview with Digital Spy.
“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. 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.”
All three members are the top performers in the industry. Reigns is the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. Rollins is a top star on Raw. Ambrose is the interim AEW World Cham,pion.
