• Seth Rollins Asked Who He Wants In A New Version Of The Shield
During his appearance on WWE Backstage, RAW Superstar Seth Rollins was asked who he would like to put in a new version of The Shield.
Below is what Rollins said:
“I would never make a new Shield. If you’re asking me if I would pick two wrestlers to form a new stable with, we could go there.
I think my fiancée would beat me up if I didn’t say her, so Becky could be in there for one.
Maybe, I’ve had some run-ins with him, he’s kinda unbeatable. So maybe The Fiend would be the other one.”
