Seth Rollins discusses The Shield's "final chapter."
Tonight, WWE presents The Shield's "Final Chapter," a Network special that is being advertised as the trios final match together in the company. The match will take place at a live event at in Moline, IL. Speaking to Quad-City Times, Seth Rollins discussed his last ride alongside his best friends.
"Sunday will be extra special. It's The Shield's last match ... There will be a lot of energy in the building. It just kind of just worked out, in an unfortunate way, obviously not something we ever wanted to say the final chapter,” Rollins said. “I always believed The Shield would live forever. Now we have this last weekend and it just happens to end up in Moline. It's very poetic. It will be a cool experience to do in front of friends and family."
Rollins continued, noting "(it's) just a different vibe (to team) with guys you get along with, your best friends in the industry. It's a different level of camaraderie. Life is about sharing experiences; to do that in the moment with those guys is a very different experience, and I'm fortunate enough to have it happen at home.”
Dean Ambrose is set to leave WWE later this month when his contract expires. WWE previously advertised The Shield's bout at Fastlane on Mar. 10 as their "last ride" together. They also delivered a "farewell address" the following night on Raw.
Rollins took to social media earlier this week to promise that this is the end of the trio "for a while."
I’m pretty stoked about this weekend. Taking the black one more time with my boys...and in my own backyard. We’ve had a lot of “lasts” lately, I know, but I promise this really is the end for a while. #WWEStLouis #WWESpringfield #WWEMoline #ShieldsFinalChapter https://t.co/kJiEDYWjds— Seth Rollins (@WWERollins) April 19, 2019
