Seth Rollins recently sat down for an interview with Bleacher Report and, naturally, the subject of when exactly The Shield will break up and what happens after came up.
Here's the set up and answer:
Bleacher Report: Every faction that is on this new DVD has one thing in common-their demise. I know you may not be ready to think about this, but have you thought at all about the days to come, when The Shield is just a distant memory for you?
Rollins: You know, you say that, but I don't know if these factions are all ever really dead. Because when Shawn (Michaels) and Hunter (Triple H) get back together and you get that "Are you Ready?" pumping on the Titan Tron, or when you get Scott (Hall) and Kevin (Nash) together and they put up the "Too Sweet" to each other, or you put Arn and Ric in the same room, they're definitely not enemies.
It doesn't always have to end badly. There's a lot of longevity that comes with having a gang of friends with you throughout your career in this business. So there's no telling when The Shield will run its course. If it ever will. We're just happy riding this wave of success right now, trying to make this place a better place for everybody, wrestlers and fans alike, and we're going to keep doing that until we can't do it anymore.
Well, how about that? The Shield going their separate ways to achieve singles success without ever turning on each other or directly feuding with one another, at least not at first and maybe not at all?
Then again, Triple H and Shawn Michaels had a rivalry that seemed to go on forever in between teaming together as members of D-Generation X. There's room and both sides, but those are two of the biggest stars in the history of WWE who could survive no matter what.
We'll see if the The Shield has that kind of staying power.
We can only hope, right?
