Seth Rollins talks about the storyline

Speaking on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions show, Rollins explained why WWE abruptly ended The Shield and CM Punk’s alliance.

“No one really told us what was going on,” said Seth Rollins. “We got such a good reaction that they moved us away from being Punk’s security squad almost immediately, within I wanna say a couple of weeks. It was like a loose relationship where we would help out but there was no like, ‘You guys are my guys.’ It was just like we were clearly our own entity, you know what I’m saying?

The Shield feuded with top stars of the company including Daniel Bryan and John Cena during their first few months on WWE’s main roster. A year after their debut, they lost a three-on-one handicap match against CM Punk at the TLC pay-per-view in December 2013.

On why The Shield succeeded:

“Dude, it was like a boy band, you know what I mean?” Rollins continued. “It was a weird fandom where we were heels but no one cared. We came down through the crowd, everything was different, the old Sandman entrance, the music was awesome. Even the promo style, where we were moving the camera around, kind of looking right into it, no one was doing that at the time. Everything was just new.”
