Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion
The funny thing is that even though Seth Rollins is a face on NXT, I don't see any lack of continuity in regards to him being a member of The Shield. The Shield's gimmick is meant to be railing against percieved "injustices", and the promo that Rollins cut against Jinder actually addressed an "injustice" of Jinder attacking him. Seth Rollins is a face, but The Shield believes that they are faces.
Although I don't like him as a contender to the NXT Title, I like that Jinder Mahal apparently has his own life and endeavors outside of 3MB (the stable was already established when this episode was taped). Imo, it's better for tag team and stable members retain some sense of their own identity rather than being sucked into a hive mind/bubble.
