Seth Rollins’ time in promotions such as Ring Of Honor certainly helped him hone his craft before making his way to WWE. Rollins’ current obnoxious heel character never fails to annoy fans. On top of that, Rollins really doesn’t do scripted promos as such, just like Roman Reigns.
Seth Rollins faced Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship to begin the Royal Rumble event. The Visionary played mind games with Reigns as he brought back the Shield gimmick for the match. Renee Paquette especially loved this as well.
The match ended in disqualification as Roman Reigns choked out Rollins without letting him go, leading to Rollins winning the match. While speaking with Stephanie Chase of Digital Spy, Seth Rollins revealed that wearing The Shield gear was a decision made at the last moment. He credited his mom for packing and delivering the gear.
“Fortunately the event was in St. Louis, which is a short drive from my home in Iowa where I kept all my old stuff. So I had a few friends coming up for the show and so I had to have them put it in a backpack, my mom packed it and delivered it to the guys, and they brought it down.”
Seth Rollins also doubts fans will ever see The Shield team up again. We’ll have to see whether Rollins and Reigns ever face each other again in the future.
