5 reasons why WWE fans love The Shield
Just why do fans adore the group so much?
The Shield is one of the most popular WWE factions of all-time and their recent reunion has had the WWE Universe abuzz with nostalgic delight. Ever since debuting at Survivor Series back in 2012, the trio of Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns ruled the roost for a year and a half.
So, what was it about these three men that captured the imagination of professional wrestling fans all over the world? How did they succeed where so many other groups - like The Nexus - before them had failed? Well, that's what we're here to find out today.
So, without any further ado, here is our list of five reasons why WWE fans love The Shield:
#5) They disbanded before they grew stale

Seth Rollins betraying Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns just one and a half years into their run was perfect timing. It's clear that even today, three and a half years after they went their own ways, the fans still love The Shield because of the timing of that breakup.
