Would you buy Zack beating someone in the ring - then the Shield surrounding him - looking like a beatdown - then suddenly he kneels, they shave his head, burn his merch and he proclaims that he joins Shield because of the injustices done towards him.

Putting ZR in a group with also address his shortcomings - with Ambrose doing the heavy lifting on promo work.

Obviously the current ZR character will go in the dustbin along with the merch - making way for a new, more serious Ryder.

Or...is making ZR in any way credible a ship that has sailed? Should the Shield only stay at 3 members?
I was kind of with you until the "shave his head part." It would take a lot more than Rogaine for him to grow it all back. But I was actually just thinking about this before I even saw this thread, and I do think Zack Ryder could benefit from a heel turn like this (not necessarily joining the Shield though).

Shaving the head isn't really required to be a member of Shield when you have Rollins walking around with Kaitlyn's hairdo.
The Shield isn't SES or some cult-like faction.

Zack Ryder should have known that investment in his current gimmick is a very short-term thing. Now, I would not advise a heel turn. But he needs to scrub that bronzer off and work on something less dated.

Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne.

Not buying it, unlike the masses who are buying Ryders merch. He's young and eventually I hope he gets to be a solid upper midcarder. He is over with so many markets, especially the NY/NJ crowd that I see him playing a role of some sort at Mania.

Re: Would you buy Zack Ryder joining the Shield?

Hell No! Have you ever watched Z! The True Long Story? If you did, then you probably wouldn't have even asked this question. Ryder is a complete joke right now and there isn't really any injustice against him. It's not injustice when there are a lot of other mid-carders who are more deserving than him like Cesaro, Gabriel and Kidd. The best thing for him would be reuniting with Hawkins. As for The Shield, I wouldn't really wanna see Maddox joining them as he just doesn't fit with them (and he's been booked like a jobber). If they wanna add new members, it should be people who fit with their image such as Orton, Big E, Graves and Ohno.

Re: Would you buy Zack Ryder joining the Shield?

I think TNA ought to and push Zack Ryder and a few others to join that organization. If I was working for them, I would certainly do so. Ryder, Bray Wyatt, Jodi Christofferson, and Jack Swagger. I'm not sure if spelled all the names correctly, but you get the point. If WWE doesn't want to use them properly there are others that could.
