Triple H had some other plans, Triple H made Seth Rollins turn on Shield, so they could have a singles run, even though fans were heartbroken, but they are very happy at the success of The Shield members now. Roman Reigns is Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Seth Rollins is WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and Jon Moxley( Dean Ambrose) is having a great time in AEW.

Seth Rollins recently was on Impaulsive podcast, where he talked about his wrestling career and how long could he continue to wrestle.

“So I feel like I’m just starting my prime. I’ve been wrestling since I was roughly 16/17 years old, so 20 years now. So, in our industry, and there are some exceptions, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, he’s kind of an exception obviously because he was sort of a part of the business his entire life because his family was in it, but his real run was only like four years, it was tiny.

“For the most part, historically, you need years and years of experience, thousands of matches, you’ve got to build equity with your audience, so I am at the point now where I’m 37, and so I’ve got probably like this maybe 6 to 10 year window, depending on my health, where I’m going to be in the sweet spot, where like my body can still go, but my brain is also finally caught up to where I am physically.

“So like, mentally and physically I haven’t deteriorated I’m like, in that perfect zone where I’m not quite what I was when I was your (Logan Paul) age athletically, but I’m still pushing it, and mentally I’m just, I can read the room when we go out there, it’s like cake for me.

“So I’m in that zone for like 6 to 10 years depending on how my body holds up, and then who knows. Then I’ll turn into the Undertaker and turn up once a year for WrestleMania. But yeah, I’m feeling really good right now, I’m in a sweet spot.” (H/T: WrestleTalk.com)
