Am I the only one that constantly sees these guys as Big Boss Man knockoffs? I mean come on, the tactical gear (identical to the look BBM and Bull Buchanon had in the day), calling themselves The Shield (shield being slang for badge). I'm not saying they act like him, but I can't be the only one who sees this.
So they're not actually anything like him besides the attire, thus they're knock-offs? Logic?
Yea it is the long hair and Ambrose is slightly taller but in my opinion Reigns would better suit going solo
The problem with that is he still a bit too green to be on his own so it's probably a better learning experience for him to be around the other two and guys like Punk to help him become as great as he can potentially. Reigns is probably the least likely at this point to find succcess on his own because of how limited he is in most areas, but he has so much untapped potentially that by the time he goes out on his own he should be at sheamus level in ring and, hopefully, much better than a "randy orton type 2" on the mic.

Thanos is only beaten because he allows himself to be, and he only allows himself to be beaten because, in spite of his ambition to attain ultimate power, he sub-consciously knows that he's not worthy of it.

Just wanted to say I'm proud of the people on this board who are giving Roman Reigns credit for what he is doing and giving him credit for "so far" looking like the star of the group. We knew that Ambrose was gonna get credit on this board rightly or wrongly because of the following he already had here. Some on this board will (and in many ways already have) refuse to see anyone other than Ambrose as showing star potential. I'm just giving credit to those who are juding the group/angle based on what they are doing now and not what their previous opinion was.
So The Shield attacked again Monday night, and for the third time in two weeks, they left Ryback lying in a heap while WWE Champion CM Punk basked in their assist in taking down his titanic foe. But with Ryback’s WWE Title Match at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs fast approaching, we find it hard to believe the beast will tolerate any further tampering with his chances to relieve Punk of the WWE Championship. It wasn’t so long ago that Ryback was yelling “Feed Me Three!”; might we see Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns step into the ring against him sooner rather than later?
The Shield claims to be enforcers of justice in WWE, but we’re wondering their motivation in jumping Kane following The Big Red Machine’s RAWactive match against CM Punk last Monday night. Where was the miscarriage of justice that caused the lurking threesome to swarm the ring and attack an opponent completely unprovoked? And does the attack lend credence to the (previously denied) accusation that the trio is working for Punk and Paul Heyman? Frankly, we’re curious to hear what — if anything — Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns have to say for themselves.
Since it's practically common sense for people to just assume that Rollins is going to be a "face", and split from this group first, I just wanted to know how you all would make that happen. I'm going the routed of Cody Rhodes coming back from injury talking about how he had to watch Raw instead of being part of it. He says that what most don't know is that one man out of this group, The Shield goes against his own words, and beliefs. Rhodes says that his father is currently the GM of the WWE's AAA wrestling promotion NXT, and that he is proud of what he had done down there.
However Cody says that one man turned his back on Dust, and served his father a great "injustice". Rhodes says that man is Seth Rollins. Cody said that a while back he visited his father down in NXT to see how things were going because his father had told him he wanted to introduce a title like no other in the wrestling community. Cody said being a man of his word, his father did have a title made, and a tournament was held to crown a new champion. Rhodes says that champion earned the right to be the best talent that this facility this show had to offer. Cody says that man was none other than Seth Rollins.
Rhodes says that Rollins was the champion of NXT, and gave his father his word that he would prove to him that he will take NXT to new heights. Cody could say that Seth Rollins was all that his father would talk about, and after all the time invested in to this man he just turns his back on fans, the promotion, and his father. I just think having Rhodes turn "face" while trying to point out his disappointment in Rollins would be a great way to set him up as a face.
