Shield member Dean Ambrose spoke to Eric Goldman of IGN.com during WrestleMania weekend. Here are some highlights of what he said about:
The Shield Turning Babyface: "You know, we never went out of our way to do anything that is… We're doing the exact same thing that we've always done; we're just focusing it in a different direction. Our destruction is now pointed at the same place as fans -- our enemies that are in our sights are the same people who fans might see as enemies. Look, we haven't changed anything we've done, and we don't do anything any differently; it's just positioned in a different way, so people might feel a different way about it."
When They Realized The Shield Was Getting Over: "I don't know that I can remember a first moment with us, but it was really early on when we could tell… Actually, you know what? I say that, but it was probably TLC 2012. That was our first real match together, and it was our first match in WWE. For myself that was my first match in WWE, so it was nearly a decade buildup to this one match. It took me that long to get here."
"For the other guys, they have their own personal journeys and stuff. Whatever it took to get there, that was the first time we were really going to find out -- you know, the crowd was going to see, and we were really going to find out ourselves just how well we could work together, because we were all on the same page. We knew we could trust each other, and we all had faith that we could deliver, but that was the first time any of us I think probably really felt that chemistry between us. It was so seamless and so easy, probably easier than we thought it was going to be. That was probably the moment where we were just like, 'Yeah, this is a thing. This works.'"
