Seth Rollins came up through the ranks, as a member of the destructive trio, The Shield. Rollins, alongside Dean Ambrose and his now arch-rival Roman Reigns, decimated the competition like no other. Seth credited as “The Architect” of the group back then, was asked to put together his dream faction, years after the Shield was destroyed by Rollins himself.

During the latest edition of WWE’s The Bump, Seth Rollins was asked about forming his own dream team. He first picked his beloved wife, The Man Becky Lynch. Following that, ‘The Visionary’ selected current Undisputed WWE tag team champions, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn as the two soldiers of his potential stable.

Seth Rollins could prove to be a fantastic faction leader

Seth Rollins has always proclaimed that he put the Shield together and led it to success. That itself makes him the unannounced leader of the former faction and many fans would probably agree to it. Moreover, Rollins has a great experience when it comes to leading groups.

Apart from The Shield, Seth led his famous “Messiah faction” alongside Buddy Matthews and the AOP, proving it to be a hit among fans in 2020.

And of course, who could forget the time the former “Messiah” was the leading man of Triple H’s Authority back in 2015? Moreover, Rollins is also an excellent worker when it comes to teams. He has teamed up with several stars like Braun Strowman, Jason Jordan, Kevin Owens, and his wife, Becky Lynch herself.

So he has some experience working alongside Becky and Owens, putting Zayn into the mix and they can create magic. Whether that faction could be created, only time will tell.

Right now, we can all sing the song for Seth Rollins as he leads the charge on RAW following his amazing win at WWE Night of Champions and becoming the inaugural World Heavyweight Champion.
