WWE are notrious for it. They have these ideas, but no real direction on where to take them. They then try and come up with something on the fly that just fails.

Yeah I'm being one of those guys who are complaining before anything has happened, but I've been burned so many times before that I think I'm entitled to think this way. These three guys are so unique that this type of gimmick/stable thingy is beneath them.

I would have debuted Ambrose very similar to the way Jericho did in 1999. Even though he has't really been on a national stage like Jericho had been in WCW, he could use the time to introudce himself in a 15 minute promo segment that could be as famous as Jericho's.

Rollins is the NXT Champion. This writes itself. Why didn't he just turn up with the be;t over his shoulder in backstage segments until he pissed off a mid card heel and then he beats him in a match on Raw?

And then their is Reigns, who should just have been brought in like he has on NXT ad the Thoroughbred? Coming in wearing a suit like a boss and just beating people in good hard fought matches.

I know the Shield is trying to be different, but their outfits are weird and where is this all going other than them being beaten up by Ryback?

I really want to see Ambrose conquer the wrestling world, but I'm not sure the Shield is the way to do it. Yes I'm happy he is finally on tv, but he was ever in NXT, and for them to keep saying he was is a bit weird. I thought they were keeping him off NXT because they had something big in mind for him...
I think the point of having those guys start off in a stable is to make them relevant right away. They could have done it the way you suggested, but there's a chance they would just be stuck in midcard hell trying to get the fans to care about these new wrestlers nobody outside the smarks know about. Not saying that would end up the case, all three are supremely talented and have star potential. But with the stable, you get all three guys right there, getting everybody's attention as they go after the biggest riser in the company. Immediate impact.

I want all three to stand alone and they will in due time, but for now I think this Shield thing could be the best way for them to make a name for themselves with the "WWE Universe" from the early going. Their debut was more memorable than a lot of the guys on the main roster now and I think that speaks volumes to how high the company thinks of them.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I'm starting to get the feeling that Heyman hired The Shield to have Punk's back but there's still a hierarchy within the group and they ultimately do what they want as long as it helps Punk. Reigns appears to be the shot caller while Ambrose does the talking to get their message across and Rollins is the workhorse.

If I had to guess, I'd say that somewhere down the line one of their attacks will go too far and Rollins' conscience will get to him so he bails or Ambrose will get jealous of Reigns and really come unhinged. Hopefully when they dissolve it's because of something like either of the scenarios I just mentioned instead of simply being fed to Ryback or Cena and then held off TV for a year until creative can come up with ideas for their singles pushes. I'm really holding out hope for Ambrose/Rollins to be the first match at Mania.

I think it would be a solid way to incorporate them even further, and enhance all their characters.

Ambrose gets AJ, and proves to be the voice that is truly behind the group. AJ turning heel, and joining Ambrose would spice things up a bit. Cena becomes jealous of Ambrose, but instead Roman steps in to take exception to Cena's jealousy. Reigns tells Cena that defeating Cena is in his DNA, and it's a subtle hint to being related to The Rock. Ambrose convinces Reigns that it is his time to show the world who he is, and what his name will mean to this business.

Ambrose then is introduced as the man who was behind Rollins making a name for himself, and taking Ziggler's MITB title shot. Dean is the voice behind Rollins actions. This shows his influence on those around him. Rollins, and Ziggler could easily pull off some great wrestling matches. Putting the MITB title shot on the line is another great way to remind people that the MITB title shot exist still. There is no doubt in my mind that both men would get folks in to their matches.

Have Dean milk a few Raw's with some mic time, and talking about himself along with AJ at his side. Eventually someone interrupts him, and that someone should be The Miz. The Miz is the perfect "face" right now for Dean to go over on, and both men are solid on the mic. Ambrose vs The Miz is something that could go on until The Royal Rumble as well. Test Dean vs one of the more well known stars on the roster. I think he would be able to work perfectly as the heel vs The Miz.
I like most of this. Good ideas. Maybe even Reigns goes at Cena tough and Aj then causes Cena to loose. Cause god forbid cena loose clean! But a psycho Aj with a unstable Ambrose could be hreat

AJ all up in this mix would be terrible.

(And anyways, it seems pretty obvious that her shocking swerve will be with Dolph, not the Shield.)

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

No surprises that Ambrose is leading the poll by some distance but from a purely objective POV, it's Reigns 100%. Ambrose is a great promo guy no doubt and Rollins did just as well as Ambrose did in the interview, but Reigns looks like the star. He's the one with the most natural intensity about him. He also seems fresh in a way. Right now, Ambrose and Rollins to me are more cookie-cutter in their heel antics (the interview is nothing we haven't heard before let's face it)

No, there is no purely objective POV when it comes to this. Being impressive to someone isn't a factual thing, it depends highly on the opinions of the beholder.

Of course you can argue that some will be influencing their votes by what they have seen previously but I think Ambrose is the one that clearly has shown the most unique qualities of the three, even on Raw.

How can a shocking swerve be obvious. AJ aligning with Ziggler makes no sense unless Ziggler turns "face". What about Vickie? Is she just magically going to get along with AJ now that she turns heel with Ziggler? Both of these angles with The Shield, and AJ/Vickie/Cena/Dolph story lines are going nowhere right now. Granted The Shield went after Ryback, but he has already been defeated, and so what is the direction afterwards. Are they really going to job out all three men to Ryback?

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

The storyline needs to build and build towards mania from now and not let up one bit.

I when someone mentioned Rollins/Amborse as next years Mania opener.

I see Rollins and Amborse as a tag team, possibly to fill the void left by Cody's injury. I hope not and that they are singles competitors going forward.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Ambrose shouldn't team with Rollins. I like him more as a loner. He fits in this stable for now but once his character starts to come out they'll need to split him ASAP
