When Seth Rollins was a member of The Shield, it was the hottest faction the WWE had seen in close to a decade.
Yes, that includes The Nexus. The Shield were huge and has gone on to produce three world champions.
For the majority of their run, they were portrayed as heels who had no regard for their foes. When Rollins turned on his brothers and struck them down with steel chairs in 2014, he went on to become the company's top heel.

However, The Architect continued to garner positive crowd reactions throughout his time with The Authority and, particularly, during his feud with John Cena.
Catching up with Rollins during the WWE's tour of the UK, GiveMeSport asked The Man how difficult the crowd made life for him as a bad guy.
"It was very difficult, very difficult. It just seemed like whatever I did I would get cheered half the time. It's just the way the fans are these days, the way information travels, they just appreciate I think - I hope - they appreciate talent. They just know what's good and what's bad and they like things that are good and they don't respond to things that aren't so good.
"It's just a different world we are living in as far as how our audience digests what we are giving them. It was very interesting and a good challenge, but it was certainly hard to get them to hate me sometimes."
Rollins has since been turned face and is the top good guy on Monday nights with Raw. Do you think Rollins is destined to be a big babyface? Let us know in the comments below.
