Re: For all those that were hoping for a Shield triple threat at Mania...
I'm kinda confused why WWE has yet to include the FCW interactions between these 3 into The Shield's mythology. We still don't know why or how they came together. When was the exact moment/time period that those three decided to get together and whose plan was it?
The story of the Rollins/Ambrose rivalry, top WWE officials being afraid to call Ambrose up due to his repuation, Reigns being Ambrose's only friend in FCW and Rollins' overall agitation that he had to wait 2 1/2 years before getting called up despite being the best FCW/NXT had to offer can all play big parts in The Shield's origin. A nice blend of reality and kayfabe.
