Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns debuted on WWE’s main roster together as The Shield back in 2012. The three men shared one of the greatest debuts in history back at Survivor Series almost eight years ago, but their fortunes have definitely differed in recent years.
Seth Rollins has gone on to become The Monday Night Messiah, while Roman Reigns was destined to win the Universal Championship back at WrestleMania and Dean Ambrose is currently AEW’s World Champion.
Rollins noted following Ambrose’s departure from WWE that he wasn’t happy with the comments that the man now known as Jon Moxley made regarding the company that still employs him.
While speaking to Bleacher Report, Rollins was able to reveal that his relationships with both Ambrose and Reigns have changed over the past year.
“We still talk from time to time. I would love to see what he’s doing or how he’s doing or whatever. When his wife [Renee Young] got sick, obviously I checked in on him to make sure he was doing OK and the dogs were good and all that good stuff.”
Roman Reigns was recently forced to take hiatus from WWE during the COVID-19 pandemic and while many fans believe that Reigns is sitting at home waiting to return, Rollins set the record straight when it comes to his former Shield teammate.
“He’s got five kids now. He’s a busy dude. It’s not that he’s sitting at home taking his time off. He’s working in a different way. As expected-father-to-be later this year, I can’t imagine having five little crazies running around at once, so kudos to him and his wife for what they’re doing. But he’s doing good and he’s healthy.”
“You see him on social media. He’s working out, he looks like he’s in the best shape he’s ever been.”
