I think it would be cool if they play on Reigns and Rock being related. The Rock could want to get revenge on CM Punk for embarrassing him so he hired The Shield to protect Punks title reign so Rocky can end it at the rumble.

Imagine a ref bump during the title match and The Shield appears and hits the ring, eyes locked on The Rock only for them to turn to Punk and attack him. Rock wins the belt turns heel and is the man behind the shield. we could get another version of Hollywood Rock with a still heel but like able CM Punk facing off at wrestlemania in a rematch.

I'm as big of an Ambrose mark as anyone, and I don't think we should be attacking people who say Reigns is a future star. He definitely has the look. I haven't seen enough of his promo work, but I really like the way they're positioning him in the group. Same with Rollins. it's clear that he's the idealistic one who will inevitably turn face. Makes complete sense.

Monday just re-affirmed what we've thought for a long time. Ambrose is different from other IWC darlings and is the real deal. His promo skills are bonkers.

We should all be very excited about this new group. Stop bickering about who's going to be the bigger star. The WWE has a really awesome angle ready to take off.

also I would slaughter a small village to see a Rock/Ambrose promo.

Jeez, why can't some of you just let things play out before passing judgment? They've been on screen a grand total of 3 times (4 if you count the run-in on Main Event) and have only spoken once. Let the storyline develop for a month or so before you decide on anything. Yes, many of us have waited a while to see Ambrose and Rollins on tv, but I'm willing to wait and see what happens.

While I'm on the topic, I actually think they've been brought to tv in a very smart fashion, since it allows for their characters to evolve. Maybe down the line Ambrose will start to lose it and slip into the character he's been so successful playing, but that makes the transformation all the better. Remember when CM Punk finally got the chance to use his "Straight edge means I'm better than you" shtick? It was so much more fun to see the turn, in my opinion.

And bringing Rollins up as a heel will allow him to see the error of his ways and turn into a good guy, which he is much better at playing (and his moveset is more conducive to that alignment). Since I'm here, I'll go ahead and take shots at those who said his part of the promo wasn't good... what exactly were you watching? It was perfectly acceptable. Yeah, nothing ground-breaking but it got the point across and he was calm, articulate and sounded like he believed what he was saying.

Finally, Reigns is the unknown here. He doesn't have the body of work like Ambrose & Rollins so we don't really know what to expect. He's played the silent enforcer well, like others have said, but I believe that's to protect him in the long run.

All in all, I think they've played the angle to perfection and they'll be able to cover each other's weaknesses considering the varying talents of the three. Stop over-analyzing everything and just enjoy something for once.

2.) I agree it's pretty much an "injustice" that he gets to mainevent, have a title shot...then leave as opposed to guys who have been trying forever so it clearly is a setup for that unless there is some kind of swerve...they can also setup ryback or cena coming out in that match to save the rock so who knows...or swerve everyone

3.) link to those rumors?

Here is a link to where it is mentioned by Meltzer that Triple H views Reigns as something special. http://www.examiner.com/article/wwe-...ttacked-ryback

I honestly dont get the whole Seth Rollins mic bashing on here is about...Especially the Reigns will be a star crap, when he just sat there and said a two sentences...What Rollins said i thought he delivered pretty well considering he isnt the best on the mic.

No doubt about it though...Ambrose is the star of the three.

People thinking these 3 will be fed to Ryback and that'll be it are being naive. All 3 of these guys are potential main eventers. They all have a great presence which to me is something that is severely lacking on the current roster. Ambrose in particular just has an aura about him.

Not sure where people are coming from saying Rollins is a spare part. Thought he did really well in the promo on monday. dat kick as well. This guy will make a great face in the eventual group disbanding storyline.

Ambrose looking at Reigns while saying "we're a shield from injustice" and getting absolutely no reaction was pretty interesting. I like the way it's going so far, it's a good time of year to bring them in too with the RR and WrestleMania.

Yeah its obvious Ambrose is the star of the three the only thing Reigns has on him is look, presence, physique, and upside.

The Shield is one of the most exciting storylines they have had since the Summer of Punk. Other storylines may have been good and worth watching, but this storyline is a great way to introduce new stars to the audience. So far, so good as many of you are saying. The WWE hasnít had the greatest track record in executing these types of storylines and many fans are worried about this being a way to feed Ryback or maybe a repeat of Nexus, who were brought in as a threat and over time just completely destroyed to the point of no return by a guy like John Cena. One great piece of leverage that creative has is that this isnít the Nexus; all three men are different and capable of making their own individual impact. These arenít a bunch of rookies with one leader whoís a rookie himself; these are three wrestlers with a long history in professional wrestling (Reigns more by association, but you get the point.)

Iím excited about this storyline, but Iím worried as all of you are about them screwing it up. More members could overshadow and complicate things, maybe even make the group look weaker by comparison. If they happen to be working for Punk, which I hope they arenít, then let it just be Punk, Heyman, Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns. Donít add Ohno, Langston, Graves or anybody else from NXT into the group, just leave it at the five that you have there. If Heyman is involved, why are they consistently attacking Ryback? Brad Maddox. Remember that little conversation that ultimately led no where between Heyman and Maddox? This could be the outcome of that conversation. While I hope that Maddox isnít going to be involved in the group, it would certainly make a lot of sense.

Either way, the WWE is finally moving in the right direction.
