Video: The Shield explain why they attacked Ryback, if they're with CM Punk, and what they're about

The Shield, now the official stable name for the Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns trio, explain their goal in this video interview with Michael Cole shown on Monday Night Raw.

WWE promised a big interview with Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns on last night's (Nov. 26, 2012) episode of Monday Night Raw. They delivered, too, even if it wasn't live like we were expecting. Michael Cole asked the questions and gave the group the chance to explain their actions.

On whether they are working with CM Punk:

"It's not about benefitting Punk. It's about right and wrong. CM Punk, the WWE champion, was forced to defend his title in a triple threat match against two guys he had already defeated. That's wrong. So we stepped in. If it had been Ryback or Cena, we would have done the same thing. If Ryback was champion for 365 days and Punk tried to ruin his party, we would have intervened on Ryback's behalf. 365 days as champion in this era, that's a huge milestone. That should be celebrated, right?"

Later, Ambrose revealed their name as though he stumbled upon it when recalling something Rollins had previously mentioned:

"Look Cole, we see where you're getting at. We hear everything you guys are saying, we read everything that's being written, okay? We know what you guys are thinking. But we're not renegades, we're not mercanaries, we're not the Nexus; if you're looking for the nWo, go buy the DVD. We're about principles. We're about honor. Where honor no longer exists, we're going to step in. It's like he said, we're a shield from injustice. We're a shield from injustice. ... We are The Shield."

There you have it, Cagesiders. How do you like the explanation given? Still a fan of their gimmick? Did you think all three came off well in the interview?
