JR Blogs On Seth Rollins Splitting From The Shield On RAW, Roman Reigns & WrestleMania 31

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. As always, you can purchase JR’s BBQ products on WWEshop.com. Ross talked about Seth Rollins turning on Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose on RAW:

“RAW was an o.k. show with a hot ending. Therefore the thing that most people will take away from the broadcast was Seth Rollins turning his back on Ambrose and Reigns and apparently aligning himself with HHH and Randy Orton.

Or did he?

I always thought that Dean Ambrose was the natural heel of the Shield but I’ve got no issues with Seth Rollins doing the dirty deed even though in a perfect world I would have preferred that the Shield stay together a little longer. Apparently, WWE felt compelled to re-shuffle the deck which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I’d assume that several dominoes will fall as time moves forward and the company prepares for a major push to Summer Slam. In other words, I’d assume that multiple cards are up in the air and won’t land on the table until August.

Rollins can talk and is extremely athletic and those two traits are generally considered essential to be a successful pro wrestling villain. Rollins is a bumping machine ala HBK in his healthy, heel days.

Still thinking @WWERomanReigns is WWE Champ coming out of WM31.”

    I love the choice of Rollins. He is my favorite wrestler out of The Shield and possibly on the entire roster maybe tied with Bryan. He was gonna have the toughest time on his own imo so aligning with the Authority gives him a good shot at the top.I hope they don’t throw him at the WWE title too early tho. I can see him as a great IC champ for a while.

    But Rollins vs DB for the world title could be legendary at some point.

      Agreed! The guy is a great package overall. Very athletic, decent mic skills and is great at selling (at par with ziggler).

      That would be a great match. They could have a great technical match, something similar to Benoit vs Angle at Royal Rumble 2003.
