​Backstage Update – Seth Rollins Heel Turn & Plans


Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

We can now confirm that Seth Rollins’ heel turn was
absolutely a last-minute decision. However, a source also reports that despite
indications to the contrary, it was not a change from a planned Dean Ambrose
turn either.

The source claims that the hints toward a Shield
split in WWE Magazine (where Ambrose referred to his “former partners”) and the
Payback post-match interview (where Reigns gave Ambrose a nasty look) were not
actually intending to lead into a heel turn whatever the speculation.

Basically put, it’s not like there were plans to
turn Ambrose, but at the last
minute the company decided to go with Rollins instead. The idea to
turn Rollins was a last-minute decision, and had nothing to
do regarding whether or not Ambrose should be the guy — if any — to turn on
the faction.
