Backstage News on The Shield Splitting Up, Possible Battle Royal Participant, Total Divas

– While The Shield have made a turn in the last week, they are still scheduled to split up. As of this week, the plan is for Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to form a heel tag team and Roman Reigns to be pushed as a top singles babyface.

– Darren Young did an interview on the WWE App this week where he teased being in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXX. He hasn’t been announced by WWE yet.

– Below are preview clips for this coming Sunday’s episode of WWE Total Divas:

    I really don’t want them to split yet. Let them have a good run as a face team for some time, building up their face characters. It’ll make Rollins and Ambroses heel turns even better. I just love the Shield as s team.

  • FearTheSpear

    boo! i don’t want the shield to break up! at least not yet. there’s still a lot that they can accomplish as a team

  • Cody Cosmos

    Why bother? The Shield should just stay as a cohesive unit intill at least after Mania. With how Smackdown ended this week, they could easily make a match featuring all three of them. After Mania have all three of them not see eye to eye and feud for Ambrose’s US Title at Extreme Rules. Have Reigns score the title and Rollins & Ambrose continue on the original idea listed.

  • Bryan Thomas

    Hopefully the sooner reigns gets his push, the sooner cena will be gone, go roman………even though i still think seth and dean are way better

  • Tamala Hale

    Why would Seth and Dean be a heel tag team, really???

  • Jake

    Roman Reigns would have a much better chance of being a top heel then top face everyone knows Cena is the top face and will be until WWE can find someone to replace him that will make as much money as he does, I would then like to know if they are going to put Dean and Seth into a heel tag team who is Dean going to drop the US Championship to or are they going to just retire the Championship? Cos that’s what the Championship seems to of been while Dean has held it WWE don’t seem to want to have him defend it.

    Huge mistake splitting The Shield up this early. Nothing to gain from it, at all.
    Imagine WWE this last year without The Shield, would of been terrible, their 6 man tags have saved most Raws and PPVs.
    I don’t think Reigns is even ready to go solo? Even if he was there’s no space at the top of the card for him. At the end of the day he’s gonna be below Cena, Bryan and Sheamus at least.
    Maybe a little biased because I like them so much and don’t want to see them breakup but oh well.
