Backstage Update on The Shield Breaking Up, Reason for the Group’s Babyface Turn on Raw This Week

Nick Paglino

the shieldAs we reported earlier this week, there are still plans in place for The Shield to break up, despite how things has been playing out on TV lately.

The current plan is for Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose to remain a heel tag team, and for Roman Reigns to be pushed as a top baby face in WWE.

The reason why the group seemed to turn baby face on Raw this week was two-fold. One, the New Age Outlaws requested to work with The Shield prior to the group breaking up, and two, WWE wants to get The Shield over more as a baby face team to help begin getting Reigns over as a face. The plan will eventually be for Rollins and Ambrose to turn on Reigns, allowing him to work as a top singles face.
