Roman Reigns does not want a Shield Reunion
The Shield - once the most popular WWE faction might have been dissolved for good.
As you know, all three members of the Shield have seen their careers take different paths. While Moxley is enjoying his run with AEW, WWE’s self proclaimed “Drip God” Seth Rollins is a part of the SmackDown brand with “Tribal Chief,” Roman Reigns.
During a recent appearance on Cheap Heat, Roman Reigns made it very clear that he is not interested in the group reuniting.
“No, I mean, I have a lot of respect for everything that we did now, but a lot of that time was really pivotal for me to learn and gain the experience, be around other performers and see how their processes is and how they attack things and how they think about things. Where I’m at now, it’s a one man show I have the family dynamic with my cousins, but at the same time, I call the shots. I don’t think I could share it anymore.” - Roman Reigns
However, Reigns is still looking forward to facing his former Shield brother - Seth Rollins.
“Seth is a special performer, especially in-ring. It can be a cold situation. You give us a crowd, you give us a ring and we’re gonna make some special happen. So you put us in a scenario like a WrestleMania, a SummerSlam a big PPV, no question. That chemistry, that ambition for greatness between the both of us, it’ll always be there so that’s what’s gonna always make it special. That’s easy. That’s like an insurance policy. When in doubt, throw me and him in there.” - Roman Reigns
The Universal Champion also took the time to describe his “Tribal Chief” character, while explaining why it is all “a shoot” -
“It’s a shoot. It’s for real. This is the only way I want to be remembered is being the the hands down, head shoulders, better than everybody else on the show, everybody else in the world. They’re all trying to catch me. At this point, I feel like it we’re in a marathon. We’re lapping people because we put so much preparation, so much thought into the detail, the nuance and trying to deliver the most sophisticated, not confusing, but very respectful stories as we can. When me and Paul knew we were going to get together, it was immediate, just starting to spit ball.” - Roman Reigns
