The Shield vs John Cena, Sheamus & Ryback (WWE Elimination Chamber)
Oh yeah, this was great. The Shield are being booked far beyond what I thought they would. They're really building them as this destructive unstoppable force when they're together and it's awesome. It helps that each one of them shows intensity and fire when they're in the ring and they have this great aura surrounding them. Cena was great in this as the FIP though. Great workover and really good comeback spots from Cena. Absolutely loved the spot with Cena getting a shot in, running the ropes and then Ambrose running right after him and fucking him up with a knee and a DDT. Sick spot. Ambrose fucking ruled in this imo, he's just great. Reigns being this powerhouse enforcer type guy is a great role for him especially in this kind of match when Ambrose and Rollins can do the majority of stuff while Reigns still looks boss coming in every now and then. Really am pumped with how these guys have been booked and thrust right into the main event with the top stars and look absolutely at home there. Cena launching Ambrose over the ropes and then selling the exhaustion and getting the hot tag to Ryback was ace, and this is where a guy like Ryback can be so good, because he really did look great here and in the TLC match as a beast that one on one could man handle every guy. His power moves definitely are pretty boss in this situation. Barricade spot ruled despite them doing it all the time it seems, because it was unpredictable and Lilian almost got killed. Sheamus didn't do much at all here, but his one spot near the start when he caught Dean with the Brogue kick out of desperation to tag in Cena was brilliant. The finish was really well done imo, everything got across that these guys are an unstoppable pack of wolves that have the best team mentality ever. Yeah, I really liked this a lot.
