Re: The Shield Discussion Thread
Just watched last night's attack. That was honestly the best heel beatdown of a face I've seen in years. Everything, from Ryback's initial throwing the three of them off of him, to the bumps they all took, the powerbomb on Rollins, the kicks and punches and the awesome spots of the Spear and Reign's picking up Rollins and chucking him in Ryback's direction. Really great stuff, I was skeptical about this angle but now I'm sold.
One thing that helps is that they are all pretty big guys. The Nexus had numbers on their side, but all three of the Shield are genuinely big, strong guys. Partly as a result, this was the sort of beatdown that still made the guy on the recieving end look like $100.
