The Shield WWE

Full NameThe Shield

Founded18 November 2012

Prominent PlayersRoman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose


Many consider The Shield to be the most dominant faction of the modern era. The group has been

present in many iterations since its debut, but The Shield has always consisted of Roman Reigns,

Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, three top guys.

The composition

The Shield is one of the few units in history where every member has been a world champion. Dean

Ambrose was portrayed as the Lunatic Fringe, the hot headed leader and the mouthpiece of the

group. Seth Rollins was the architect, the workhorse of the unit. And Roman Reigns was the silent

killer, the Big Dog of The Shield, when the group made its debut. The idea for the unit is attributed to

both Joey Mercury and CM Punk.

Significant achievements

The Shield had a long undefeated streak on television between 2012 and 2013. The group picked up

victories over the likes of Evolution and The Wyatt Family. At Extreme Rules in 2013, each member

of The Shield picked up gold. This meant that Dean Ambrose became the US Champion and Seth

Rollins with Roman Reigns picked up the Tag Team Championship.

First break-up

The Shield’s first breakup is their most infamous one, when Seth Rollins betrayed his brothers to join

The Authority. He would go on to embark on a singles run, and capture the world championship at

WrestleMania 31. The group would reunite at various points subsequently.


The Shield would first reunite in 2017, but their coming together was ill-fated as Reigns had to be

pulled out owing to an illness. Kurt Angle replaced Reigns in the comeback match. The group would

reunite again in 2018 after Roman Reigns became Universal Champion. It would last until Roman

Reigns had to relinquish his Universal Championship owing to a reoccurrence of leukaemia. Dean

Ambrose would go heel, later in the night, ending The Shield.
