Roman Reigns took to Twitter today to mark the 7th anniversary of The Shield.
He wrote, "7 years ago. 3 hungry dudes ready to take over the world debuted in @WWE. Multiple world championships. Main events around the world. Money made. Families grown. Taking our own paths but will always be brothers. #TheShield"
The super-stable debuted back at WWE Survivor Series PPV on November 18, 2012, with Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, who is now known as Jon Moxley in AEW. They interfered in the main event of the night, which led to CM Punk retaining the WWE Title over Ryback and John Cena in a Triple Threat. They used their big triple powerbomb to put Ryback through an announce table before the finish. The group split up but stayed together for the most part over the years. They had their final run earlier this year as Ambrose left the company.
Below is Reigns' full tweet on the milestone, along with Rollins' "fist pump" emoji response:
