WWE Superstar Seth Rollins called dropped AEW wrestler Jon Moxley (fka as Dean Ambrose in WWE) on SmackDown last week and has actually now commented on why he did. He thinks it is constantly great to reference the essential parts of a story regardless of where the star is right now.
Rollins was providing a promo on SmackDown this previous week when he discussed Moxley. He claimed the duo brought Roman Reigns throughout their time together in The Shield and compared it to Bloodline (Jimmy and Jey Uso) carrying the Universal Champion right now.
While consulting with Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT, Rollins stated:
" It's a simply an easter egg, I believe, for a few of the fans that have actually delighted in [The Shield] and stuck around, followed us for several years and things like that. It would be extremely simple to tell the story of The Tribal Chief versus The Visionary, that's an easy story and obvious for those who watch on a weekly basis but if you follow the market and you take note and you understand where we came from, you understand there was a third guy in the mix."
" I'm not going to sit here and disregard that history, I'm going to bring that up because I believe that's important. And I believe individuals who appreciate that value it. It's one of those things where it was on the suggestion of my tongue, it made sense, so it came."

" This is a WrestleMania centerpiece calibre match, no question. I absolutely believe we're going to kick WrestleMania season off the proper way. It's always going to be me and Roman. It's constantly going to boil down to me and Roman. In numerous methods, we are the most significant 2 stars in WWE in this generation and I think fans have actually been clamouring for this match."
