They're the same Hounds of Justice as before...
In an interview with The Bleacher Report, Seth Rollins talked about the future of The Shield and their current face turn. Here are highlights:
On if The Shield has changed anything since their face turn: "We aren't doing anything different. We didn't change a thing about the way we operate. We're not on the apron rah, rah, rahing, and we're not pandering to the crowd for cheers. We just go out and kick the crap out of everybody, and people seem to like it."
On why they're being cheered: "It's all about picking your targets, you know what I mean? If you pick the right targets, people are going to cheer for you, I guess. And, to be fair, people always kind of cheered us a little bit. There were always some situations where we were the good guys in their eyes. And that's OK. It's a different era and it's not all about bad guys and good guys. There's a lot of grey area and a lot of characters to fill it. That's what makes things interesting. Let the people kind of decide for themselves. Especially when you have an audience as educated as ours is now. It's not 1982 anymore. The times have changed. If you don't evolve with the business, you're going to be left behind."
On what would happen if The Shield is no longer a unit: "You know, you say that, but I don't know if these factions are all ever really dead. Because when Shawn (Michaels) and Hunter (Triple H) get back together and you get that "Are you Ready?" pumping on the Titan Tron, or when you get Scott (Hall) and Kevin (Nash) together and they put up the "Too Sweet" to each other, or you put Arn and Ric in the same room, they're definitely not enemies. It doesn't always have to end badly. There's a lot of longevity that comes with having a gang of friends with you throughout your career in this business. So there's no telling when The Shield will run its course. If it ever will. We're just happy riding this wave of success right now, trying to make this place a better place for everybody, wrestlers and fans alike, and we're going to keep doing that until we can't do it anymore."
