PostSubject: The Shield - Post-split and legacy   Sun 26 Jun - 0:52

Information from this page

At the end of 2014, Pro Wrestling Torch writer Shawn Valentino labelled The Shield as a "three-headed dragon" and the seventh top WWE story of the year and he wrote that The Shield "was one of the coolest acts in wrestling in recent years, and most fans believed they were broken up prematurely", adding that "each member of The Shield has made their mark, and they all look like they will be big stars in the future".

All three former Shield members main-evented a WWE pay-per-view event as a singles competitor within four months of the group's dissolution.

In addition, Rollins won the 2014 Money in the Bank ladder match and subsequently cashed in his contract to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion during the main event of WrestleMania 31, while Reigns won the 2015 Royal Rumble match and competed for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the same main event of Rollins' cash in.

Despite no longer formally operating as a team, Ambrose and Reigns continued to infrequently work together and maintained an on-screen friendship following The Shield's split.

On the January 9, 2015 episode of SmackDown, Reigns was about to be put into a 2-on-1 handicap match against Rollins and Big Show, until Ambrose came to the aid of Reigns and helped defeat them; the two continuously helped each other against The Authority thereafter.

On the May 4 episode of Raw, Ambrose defeated Rollins, and as per pre-stipulation by the Director of Operations Kane, Ambrose gained his first opportunity for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, being added to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match at Payback and making it a fatal four-way match, also including Reigns and Randy Orton, with the latter being pinned by Rollins.

Ambrose later faced Rollins at Elimination Chamber and, after multiple interference by The Authority on Rollins' behalf, Reigns involved himself to help Ambrose, who won by disqualification after Rollins pushed the referee in Ambrose's way as he tried to catch Rollins with his signature diving elbow drop (on a standing opponent).

Despite the win, Ambrose did not gain the championship; however, he still took the championship belt with him and challenged Rollins in a ladder match at Money in the Bank, which he would go on to lose.

After Rollins suffered legit multiple knee injuries (he tore the ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus in his knee while attempting to execute a sunset flip powerbomb) at a live event in Dublin, Ireland on November 4, a tournament was set up to crown a new champion.

The tournament began on the November 9 episode of Raw, involving 16 wrestlers, with the final match scheduled for Survivor Series to determine the new champion and, since Reigns was the number one contender after winning a fatal four-way match on the October 26 episode of Raw, Triple H tried to persuade Reigns into joining The Authority and by doing so, Reigns would have automatically been placed in the championship match; he refused, requiring him to compete in the tournament.

On the November 16 episode of Raw, Reigns, Ambrose, Kevin Owens and Alberto Del Rio advanced to the semifinals, setting up Reigns vs. Del Rio and Owens vs. Ambrose in the semifinals at the event.

At Survivor Series, Reigns and Ambrose won their respective matches and went on to face each other in the main event, in which Reigns defeated Ambrose to win the vacant title, only to lose it five minutes later to Sheamus, who cashed in his Money in the Bank contract.

Nearing the end of 2015, Ambrose won the Intercontinental Championship for the first time, after defeating Kevin Owens at the TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view on December 13, and Reigns regained the WWE World Heavyweight Championship after defeating Sheamus on Raw the night after.

Reigns lost the WWE World Heavyweight Championship to the returning Triple H after being eliminated at the Royal Rumble event on January 24, while Ambrose also competed in the Royal Rumble match and was the runner-up, being eliminated last by Triple H.

At the Fastlane pay-per-view, Ambrose and Reigns faced each other in a triple threat match also involving Brock Lesnar to face Triple H at WrestleMania 32 for WWE World Heavyweight Championship, in which Reigns came out victorious.

Reigns defeated Triple H at the event to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion for a third time.

All three members of The Shield briefly reunited on the June 13, 2016 episode of Raw when Ambrose hosted his Ambrose Asylum segment with Rollins and Reigns as guests in a lead up to their match at Money in the Bank.

At the event, Ambrose won the Money in the Bank ladder match, and Rollins would go on to regain the title in the main event, only to lose the title to Ambrose, thus all of the former Shield members were world champion on the same night.

Pro Wrestling Torch reported that WWE knew of a WWE's Wellness Program violation by Reigns before Money in the Bank, leading to Reigns being scripted to lose his world title at the event, and Reigns being suspended two days later on June 21.
