• Seth Rollins Recalls Randy Orton Getting Angry Over Dean Ambrose’s Actions
On Broken Skull Sessions, Seth Rollins recalled The Shield’s early days in the WWE and the 3-on-1 attacks that they carried out on various superstars.
One such attack was on Randy Orton and it left The Viper pissed!
Here’s what Rollins said:
“I jump up on Randy, who’s a big dude. I get on his back and before he has any time to think, Ambrose is there with the chop block. It’s a nice chop block, it’s as safe as they come, but you feel somebody come low when you’ve got somebody on your head and it’s panic time.
We come back to Gorilla and Randy’s hot. He’s hot, he’s yelling, he’s basically saying he’s gonna put a hit out on Ambrose. I remember he leaves Gorilla and we’re all just like (laughing). [Triple H] is like, ‘Don’t worry about it.’”
Rollins then revealed that The Shield attacks other superstars was never rehearsed:
“We never plan these things out. There was no rehearsal. It’s like, ‘Okay, here they come.’ So we never knew how we were gonna hit him. Ambrose is one of the safest guys in the world, but Randy don’t know that at the time. I always went high, Ambrose usually went low. I was a little bit faster so I would get there first.”
