Seth Rollins recently interviewed with Yahoo Sports where the architect discussed his issues with the Dean Ambrose heel turn on the October 22nd edition Raw, the same night when Roman Reigns announced his real-life battle with leukemia. Rollins states that he never wanted the angle to go down that way, and reveals that Ambrose was just as upset about it.
The way that affected Ambrose, that wasn’t really his best look. No one wanted to see us fight each other, we had been through that, it didn’t feel good. I was upset, he was clearly upset and people didn’t want to see it, they wanted to see us be brothers and care about each other.
Rollins would then reflect on his final match with the Shield at Fastlane, where they defeated Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley, and Drew McIntyre in the main event.
At the end of the day, I was happy to have that one last match with my Shield brothers by my side. It was one of the most emotional experiences I’ve ever had in a wrestling ring and it felt so good. Whenever we’re back on the same side, it’s so easy, it’s so much fun. Knowing that was the last one, I think we all felt it, were able to soak it in and enjoy that match. That propelled me and gave me all of the momentum I needed heading into WrestleMania.
