Former The Shield brothers member Seth Rollins has made huge claims about the defunct group recently. Rollins made a name for himself by performing alongside Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns in WWE as the group rose up to the stature for their dominance across various events. The group gained popularity and reunited after their fallout but had to find their ways individually at the company with Ambrose making his way out of WWE to join the AEW as an individual wrestler. 

Rollins recently was told by SmackDown Commentator Pat McAfee that Michael Cole refers to The New Day as the best group in WWE history. In response, he said that there have been big tag team groups in WWE history but the Shield stands out to be the greatest of all-time. 

“There was a little group called The Shield that I was a part of that I think was the greatest of all time,” said Rollins. “You look at where we’re at now, come on. No offense to Big E, Kofi [Kingston], and Mr. [Xavier] Woods… For the greater good, right? Look where Roman Reigns is at now… look where Mox is at now… look what he’s doing,” Rollins said on The Pat McAfee Show. 

Reigns who was an important part of The Shield set a new record as WWE Universal Champion by maintaining his position for over 500 days. Reigns has, thus, become the longest reigning Universal Champion. In fact he surpassed Brock Lesnar’s previous record of 503 days from 2017-2018 which came to an end at the hands of none other than The Head of The Table himself.

Reigns made a comeback at the SummerSlam last year with Paul Heyman to claim the Universal title for the second time after overcoming WWE legends Edge, John Cena and The Beast in a No Holds Barred Triple Threat Match. Following the fallout, Reigns continued to team-up with Ambrose. But, he started embarking as a singles contender and challenged for the world title. Reigns and Rollins were earlier supposed to clash in 2014. But the former developed a hernia which had to be addressed and he was unable to compete at the event. He was also awarded the Slammy Award for the Superstar of the Year in 2014. 

Reigns has seen significant growth at the company since then. He also completed 500 days as WWE Universal Champion after defeating Braun Strowman and The Fiend at WWE Payback in 2020.
