Seth Rollins was interviewed in a backstage segment posted by WWE on its YouTube channel. In the interview, Seth reveals that he will wear his original Shield vest in The Shield’s Final Chapter, which will air on the WWE Network.
Rollins talked about what it means to him that this event is taking place in Moline Illinois, which is essentially his hometown.
.“I definitely did not think that of all the places we would do The Shield’s Final Chapter would be you know, in my own backyard, that’s for sure. So it’s going to be kinda doubly special, obviously, bringing the Universal title back back to my hometown for the first time sine WrestleMania, is awesome. And getting to share this moment and send Dean off you know, with all my friends and family there as well, I think it’s gonna only add to the moment and make it feel more special than it already does.”
The Shield’s Final Chapter pits Rollins, Ambrose and Roman Reigns as The Hounds of Justice against Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley and Baron Corbin. The match will air on April 21 at 9:30 pm EST, live on the WWE Network.
Many WWE fans are likely surprised that Dean is indeed leaving the company. It was believed to be nothing more than a work initially but that does not appear to be the case. Speculation online is that Ambrose was offered a big money deal to join AEW, but that has not been confirmed.
