When Seth Rollins turned on his "brothers" Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns last week on Monday Night Raw, the WWE Universe went into shock.
The Architect of The Shield had ripped the group apart and in a way that could never be resolved in order to join their fierce enemies, Evolution.
Seth came out on Smackdown and looked rather uncomfortable delivering a promo to the live crowd as they chanted "you sold out" which is strange because as a heel and a member of The Shield a year ago, he looked very much at home.
Not only that, it also feels like he is trying too hard to make Triple H and the WWE Universe to hate him, even resorting to some rough tactics in his match with Dolph Ziggler. As of yet it's hard to tell if this is because Money in the Bank is merely weeks away so the build up is slightly rushed or if there is actually an underlying reason.
Could Seth have infiltrated Evolution in order to bring it down for good? Long shot I know and it may seem like straw clutching but Seth doesn't look like the kind of guy that would be brought by money after all he has been through with Dean and Roman.
This seems to be the only explanation anyone can come up with and after Daniel Bryan and The Wyatt's storyline earlier this year, don't think WWE wouldn't take this a step further just to increase the shock factor.
Seth himself is set to address the Universe on Raw as we see the return of his former team mates, and may finally see some form of face off and be allowed to understand his reasoning for causing the break-up of one of the best factions in WWE in a long time.
It has also been revealed that the plan for Money in the Bank is for Seth to go one-on-one with Dean Ambrose and Roman to go one-on-one with Randy Orton. This could be a way for Seth and Dean to resolve their differences and if The Shield ever found a way of getting back on the same page, the frustrations would have been taken out of the equation.
Seth is already set to become one of the biggest stars in WWE within the coming years and after his shocking turn last week he was trending on Twitter for two whole days as the Internet Wrestling Community tried to come to terms with what they had seen. WWE have a history of being tricky operators so don't think this will be a straight forward rivalry, The Shield break-up has been building for months and whether it's a ploy or real they are set to go out with a bang.
