Jon Moxley made a name for himself in WWE, where he was known as Dean Ambrose. Together with Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, the three debuted on the main roster back in 2012 and were known as The Shield. However, WWE seems to have snubbed Jon Moxley on the 10th anniversary of The Shield.
The Shield would go on to become one of the most dominant and popular stables in the history of the WWE and truly elevate the statuses of all three Superstars involved. The Shield would break up and reunite on a few occasions
WWE has celebrated a lot of anniversaries this year. Another huge anniversary will be coming this month, as WWE celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the Shield’s WWE debut.
WWE is celebrating 10 years of the Shield all month for the month of November, but not with everyone involved. This is because they made a post on WWE.com but snubbed Dean Ambrose, only mentioning him in passing as Reigns and Rollins’ “stablemate.”
Ten years ago this month, the WWE Universe was first introduced to two Superstars who would go on to change the face of sports-entertainment, Roman Reigns and Seth “Freakin” Rollins.
Alongside their Shield teammate Dean Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins emerged from the crowd on Nov. 18, 2012, to interrupt the main event of that year’s Survivor Series, setting in motion two careers that have forever since been intertwined.
Since that seminal night, The Head of the Table and The Visionary have become nothing short of WWE’s standard-bearers. They’ve won World Championships (including Reigns’ currently held Undisputed WWE Universal Title), headlined WWE’s biggest Premium Live Events and consistently been the talk of the WWE Universe, both as beloved fan-favorites and controversial rulebreakers.
To commemorate a decade of Reigns and Rollins, WWE is kicking off a month-long celebration across social media platforms starting today. Keep your eyes peeled throughout November for classic video highlights, rare and never-before-seen photos and much more, including special Reigns- and Rollins-themed episodes of YouTube series WWE Top 10 and WWE Playlist.
Jon Moxley is currently content working in AEW while Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns continue to be top Superstars in WWE. Regardless, that’s unlikely to change anytime soon.
Moxley just inked a new 5-year deal with Tony Khan’s company, further eliminating a true Shield reunion unless an impossible Forbidden Door is opened.
