Michael Cole interviewed Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns, aka "The Shield"

These are the facts, WWE Universe, as dictated to Michael Cole in a sit-down interview: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns are not working for CM Punk and Paul Heyman. They are not rogue Superstars looking to cause chaos. They are not The nWo reborn. What they are, apparently, is a shield. The Shield, in fact, a group of Superstars whose sole purpose is to protect justice in a WWE where principles have fallen by the wayside.

"We sat down in NXT and we saw things clearly. We saw things headed in the wrong direction," Rollins said in the trio's exclusive interview with Cole. "We stepped in and righted those wrongs."

"It's about right and wrong," sneered Ambrose, who balked when Cole implied their actions were for the sole benefit of CM Punk. Punk, Ambrose rationalized, was forced to defend his WWE Title against two foes he'd already beaten, so "The Shield" stepped in. When Ryback attempted to ruin Punk's 365-day celebration, they intervened as well.

"Three hundred and sixty-five days as champion in this era should mean something," Ambrose said. "We're not renegades, we're not mercenaries. We're not The Nexus ... we're about honor, we're about principles. Where honor no longer exists, we will step in."

Cole, for his part, continued with his attempts to pick through The Shield's nebulous responses, but the threesome remained unbroken throughout each of Cole's volleys. It was finally the intimidating Reigns, who had been silent the whole time, who brought the sit-down to its unceremonious halt. "We've said enough," Reigns rumbled. "This interview is over."
