Backstage News On WWE Changing Plans To Break Up The Shield

WWE has changed direction with their original plans to break up .

Word got out before WrestleMania that the company was strongly considering breaking up the popular faction and on-air storylines teased dissension amongst the members. Around the time of WrestleMania XXX, it was reported that the breakup was delayed due to the strong responses they continued to get from WWE crowds.

Another factor believed to be at play is the grooming of Roman Reigns. He is still seen as a breakout star and a future main event player, but is not ready to go solo yet and will benefit from more time with Ambrose and Rollins.

The original plans would have had The Shield already broken up at this point.

      They’re already faces

    • pwnez

      This article doesn’t make any sense. The Shield are babyfaces at the moment. What I think this article should have stated is that WWE doesn’t wish to break them up due to their popularity.

      • Jeremy-County Roberts

        Brah, Matt Boone does not post bullcap. This is legit. These guys are faces who are going to turn face soon. Ya think Matt just copies stories from other sites without reading them fully?

        • Jay Strongbow

          Yes.

            i dont think you understand sarcasm

        • bri

          well, it is coming from Meltzer, and that fool can’t get his own lies straight.

        • raVen

          Dude I love you. Your comments always have me rolling

        • pwnez

          I just thought I would let you know that the Rangers are getting their a*ses handed to them. Choke?

          • Jeremy-County Roberts

            that game ended awhile ago. Still got my LA Kings going strong!

            • pwnez

              MONTREAL, BABY!

            • kwebv3

              f@ck montreal…..bruins all the way

            • pwnez

              Also, I’m talking about the series. Pens are about to eliminate them, LOL.

            • Jeremy-County Roberts

              rangers could still win this. Remember who is in net for the pens right?

            • pwnez

              Yes, and he’s been doing just fine. Rangers can come back; look at what LA did to SJ. In this case I don’t see that happening.

      • WarPigsLukesWall

        I think they edited the article because that’s what it says now.

      • bri

        its coming from Meltzer. You can’t believe anything that’s it in. That’s why it doesn’t make sense.

        Can you not read?

        • pwnez

          My post was from 18 hours ago. Do me a favor and take a look at some of the other people’s comments that were posted around the same time as mine.

          “Is it just me or did that make no sense what so ever lmao?” Did it ever occur to you that Matt Boone edited the article and fixed all the mistakes within that time frame? I can read perfectly; thanks for your concern though. I’m so terribly sorry you weren’t able to read the botched article originally posted.

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            D’aw. Sorry bud. I didn’t look at your time stamp and I didn’t really look at other people’s comments. Apologies! Some people don’t read right is all. Much love.

          • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

            Actually I edited the article

            • pwnez

              Either way it was edited.

            • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

              Slammy Award for most redundant / unnecessary comment. “Either way ….” Yes, as an article should be, if needed.

            • pwnez

              Slammy Award for the website with the most errors goes to…

              Is it really that difficult to proofread articles before submitting them? Professionals rarely ever make mistakes because they will read their articles at least twice to make sure everything is intact. What’s the problem with passing an article along to a fellow writer so they can read it to make sure everything makes sense?

              I’m calling laziness and/or you’re not taking pride in your work. Since you decided to act like an a** I’ll send the same message back your way. Proofreading, it helps a lot. By the way, “Cesaro and Bad News Barrett defeated AND Big E and Rob Van Dam;” I took this from the SD spoilers article. You guys edited this and STILL couldn’t get it right. Pathetic.

              When you see several users complain about the constant (and lets be honest, the mistakes here are constantly occuring) errors you guys make, would you agree that it would be a good idea to fix the problem? If you worked for a big named newspaper company and made this many mistakes, you would have been fired a long time ago.

              If you readers never hear from me again, it’s because I was banned for speaking the truth.

            • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

              Typos suck, but if you really think it’s that “pathetic” – go to another site. Seriously. The rest of the writers here and I work very hard on the site and I’m not the only one that thinks we’re doing a damn good job at providing our readers with a great source for wrestling coverage. You really have no idea the amount of work it takes to keep a big site going hour after hour, day after day. Even with proofreading, there will be errors, and we don’t have the budget to hire a fulltime proofreader. If you’d like to donate so we can hire an editor, feel free to hit up the Contact Us page, the link is at the top of the site.

            • Jeremy-County Roberts

              you’re doing a good job man. Mr 561 for the win

              *not sucking up at all like a typical heel in order to get a push on this site*

            • pwnez

              You can be your own proofreader. I’m not sure why exactly you feel the need to mention hiring an actual proofreader. The last time I went to another site, you e-mailed me to come back.

              I can see this is going over your head. The hard work isn’t showing if mistakes keep popping up. Like I said, if this were a newspaper and these typos and grammatical errors came up, you’d all be fired. Yes, I do know how hard it is and how long it can take; I’ve written editorials for music and horror movies. Guess what? I proofread my articles before sending them out.

            • Jeremy-County Roberts

              pwnez you need to bow down to the king, the king of kings. Mr. 561! btw how about them rangers tonight.

            • shadoreavr

              actually you cant be your own proofreader… Thats why big companies hire editors. Its a proven fact most writers cant see their own errors, Because they typed it the way they intended to in their minds.

    • youngrob2121

      Is it just me or did that make no sense what so ever lmao?

      • omega riddler

        I am so confused right now

        • Terri

          Me tooo me too dude

    • Donny Octave

      Hey, Matt Boone, get your f*cking facts straight!!! They’re faces but WWE hasn’t even talked about them being faces? They act as faces but it’s hardly been mentioned? GET IT RIGHT MAN!!!

    • Hershey Maxwell Barber

      The face into a face turn! Rarest of them all!

    • RCW E-FED

      Im lost .. Whose high a$$ wrote this article?

    • Cena Swallows

      SeScoops Breaking News : WWE not intending to turn The Shield face seeing as their current face run seems to be a working …. ALSO just in Sting still reported to have no update …

    • rashad jackson

      u can NOT break up the shield!!
      i think reigns has his fans already….and seth rollins is starting to get a good fan base as well!! dont break them up yet!! i like the shield!! they r good together!! breaking them up wud lose all momentum for them!!….they already would of been broken up at this point? damn see im glad they didnt pull the plug yet!!
      thx whoever at wwe for seeing the fans love them!!

      i really think rollins is and should be the star…i love vince love his muscle guys and big guys like reigns but i really dont see reigns being a babyface FOR THAT long….
      rollins has the baby face look!! he is the jeff hardy of the era of wwe

    • rashad jackson

      the shield has been baby face long before that segment with the KING on raw that night a few weeks back….back in march they were face in like december really!!

    • Guest

      Good, Reigns is still green on the mic and this group is consistently the best thing in the company each and every day.

    • insomniacreviewer

      IMO the only one with potential to be WWE WHC is Reigns.

      • G.I.R.L.

        Nah, Ambrose would make a wicked heel world champ.

        • insomniacreviewer

          Ambrose doesn’t look anything like a believable tough guy, he is goofy and awkward in the ring and to be honest he sounds retarded on the mic. I can’t ever see him being WWE WHC.

          • Reality

            The brain requires good sleep to function correctly.

            • insomniacreviewer

              I get enough sleep thank you.

            • Reality

              ok sorry, I misunderstood your nickname.. your comments didn’t help

            • insomniacreviewer

              The nicest way to put it is that Ambrose just doesn’t have the look, the mic skills or the ring ability to sell tickets.

            • bri

              You’re a moron. stop talking out your arse. Go educate your self.

            • insomniacreviewer

              Some one is an indy fan i can tell because they think every indy wrestler could dominate the WWE. Indy fan boys are a joke.

            • bri

              no I’m not an indy fan you roob. Grow up, stop being a mark.

            • insomniacreviewer

              You’re an indy fan boy, i’m not being a mark Ambrose looks legit retarded.

            • gdaddy1971

              The guy knows nothing about wrestling but tries to act as if he is a wrestling savant or something. If you disagree with him, he immediately calls you a “fan boy.” I told him that he made a stupid statement about Cena , and suddenly, I was labeled as a “Cena fan boy.”

      • Jason

        Dude i watch the sheild cause of rollins, ambrose was a great heal and i like his unconventinal wrestling style. actually i think they are better than reigns he is only good for hottags and can’t carry a singles match like the other two hence the need to keep him with those two. all those sleepless nights must of also made you blind!

        • insomniacreviewer

          Ambrose is goofy and Awkward in the ring

          • bri

            wow what a mark. Moxley is an awesome performer. Great on the mic as well.

            • insomniacreviewer

              Ambrose looks like he’s autistic and he sounds retarded. No one is going to pay money to see him. He is goofy and awkward in the ring and he flails his arms like a girl when he punches. He isn’t a believable tough guy and he isn’t in great shape but i can see him being mid carder to upper mid card.

            • bri

              wow you really are ignorant. Sad to be you.

            • insomniacreviewer

              It’s the truth, people pay to see larger than life super stars. Noone is going to pay money to see a shell of a human being.

            • gdaddy1971

              Good thing you don’t wrestle. You’d starve to death.

            • insomniacreviewer

              I don’t need to wrestle, i’d rather stay home and be a man and take care of my family.

            • bri

              doubt you’ll ever have one.

            • insomniacreviewer

              Some people can’t accept the truth. Some wrestlers will never be a main eventer because they just don’t fit the WWE mold. Ambrose is one of them.

            • bri

              Once upon a time, there was this bald foul mouth guy that didn’t fit the WWE Mold. His name was Steve Austin.

            • insomniacreviewer

              Austin had the whole package. Ambrose looks like an autistic monster, there is a big difference between comparing a legend to somebody who looks and talks like a special ed monster.

            • bri

              stop insulting people with disabilities. Autism is a serious issue. It effects a lot of children and turns families up side down. Get some respect and class.

    • raVen

      See these angry comments? That’s why you don’t copy paste stories that are months old

    • satishwarne708

      Finally some one had sense for what is best for business.DO NOT break up the Shield on air or officially.Let them proceed as singles guy yet being a Shield at heart.I hope WWE has some one employed just to read these dirt sheets.

    • Wolf Haley

      its hard to believe the same company who have known for booking talent like fools and managed to book the shield so damn well

    • nsuviolin

      Of course they can’t break The Shield up yet…they need to teach Roman how to do more than 4 wrestling moves first.
