WWE star Batista: The Shield was broken up too soon


We’ll all remember the night of June 2, 2014. On that Monday night on RAW, the night after the Payback pay-per-view, the show began with Dave Batista quitting Evolution and leaving the company once again. The show then ended with Seth Rollins smashing Roman Reigns over the back with a chair, officially breaking up one of the most dominant factions in recent years, The Shield.

It seems as if Batista believes that what happened at the end of the show was the wrong move.

In a recent interview with the Huffington Post while promoting his Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Batista noted that his belief is that the break up happened too soon, and the three young stars aren’t ready to be on their own yet.

"It’s similar to my take on the Undertaker. I guess there comes a point where you have to send them their separate ways but – and it’s just my opinion – I don’t think they were ready. I don’t think they’re ready to fly solo. I realise where they’re going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he’s going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he’s magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they’re all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don’t think he’s nearly as talented as Dean."

It’s also interesting to see the comments from Batista that are similar to the opinion of a lot of other people that Ambrose is the breakout star of the group, not Roman Reigns.
