The Shield Implodes
(Raw, June 2, 2014)
It is, without a doubt, the night that made Seth Rollins a star. Seemingly out of nowhere, Seth Rollins betrays both Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose, and joins up with The Authority.
It may be the best, most effective heel turn since Hulk Hogan was revealed as the third man.
The crowd didn’t see it coming, until the moment Rollins cocked the steel chair, and dropped Reigns. Ambrose’s reaction was the same as the fans in attendance, and watching at home. It was perfect.
Then, all of a sudden, months of Rollins being referred to as “The Architect” of the Shield made perfect sense, and the greatest heel of this generation was born.
