Seth Rollins on a Shield reunion: Who knows if it will ever come back around

During his interview with the Chad Dukes Wrestling Show, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins spoke on The Shield, including talk of a possible reunion (because of course that's what we would key on):

"We get to fire up the band in other incarnations. We always laugh about it now when we do these tag matches and six mans and I'm on the other side of the ring and they're like partnered up with Randy Orton or something like that. It's just funny because you can put the components in all the different places but it still comes out gold every time. The two of those guys, myself, I feel like paved the way for a different kind of work ethic than what we had been seeing in WWE over the past five years, maybe before that. That's something I know the three of us are real proud of and every time we go out there we're going out there to have the best match and steal the show whether working against each other, with each other it doesn't matter. And that's just kind of the attitude we came in with and we stuck to our guns this entire time and it's cool to be able to share that with two other guys. The time we had with The Shield, who knows if it will ever come back around but if it doesn't no one will ever be able to take that run away from us either."

You could certainly argue each member of The Shield is actually worse off after the break up, at least outside of kayfabe. Rollins hasn't been a drawing card as champion, Roman Reigns big singles push failed, and Dean Ambrose has been booked into oblivion. In fact, WWE ultimately decided to put Reigns and Ambrose back together to run back one of The Shield's most successful programs opposite The Wyatt Family.

If there's one thing we know about WWE, though, it's that any group that breaks up will reunite at some point. And oh how glorious it will be when Rollins, Reigns, and Ambrose get the band back together.
