Re: The Shield Discussion Thread
Since it's practically common sense for people to just assume that Rollins is going to be a "face", and split from this group first, I just wanted to know how you all would make that happen. I'm going the routed of Cody Rhodes coming back from injury talking about how he had to watch Raw instead of being part of it. He says that what most don't know is that one man out of this group, The Shield goes against his own words, and beliefs. Rhodes says that his father is currently the GM of the WWE's AAA wrestling promotion NXT, and that he is proud of what he had done down there.
However Cody says that one man turned his back on Dust, and served his father a great "injustice". Rhodes says that man is Seth Rollins. Cody said that a while back he visited his father down in NXT to see how things were going because his father had told him he wanted to introduce a title like no other in the wrestling community. Cody said being a man of his word, his father did have a title made, and a tournament was held to crown a new champion. Rhodes says that champion earned the right to be the best talent that this facility this show had to offer. Cody says that man was none other than Seth Rollins.
Rhodes says that Rollins was the champion of NXT, and gave his father his word that he would prove to him that he will take NXT to new heights. Cody could say that Seth Rollins was all that his father would talk about, and after all the time invested in to this man he just turns his back on fans, the promotion, and his father. I just think having Rhodes turn "face" while trying to point out his disappointment in Rollins would be a great way to set him up as a face.
