I'm not going to judge the group itself as it hasn't been around long enough yet but I can't help but wonder if it was the best way to debut Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.
Dean Ambrose is great on the mic and hopefully will be the mouthpiece for the group but might have been better off debuting on his own so he wouldn't have to share the spotlight. Seth Rollins had a good thing going for him in NXT as a babyface and as champion, maybe he could have been brought in as the NXT champion wanting to step up and face the US champion?
I'll reserve judgment however until the group has had time to create an identity.
Creators of The WrestleManiacs the comedy web series about 3 wrestling fans raised in the era of attitude!
Dean Ambrose looked badass in that Cole interview with the hair & the whole outfit.
Anyway, it's a decent group right now. I like how they're making them target other guys besides people Punk encountered in a segment or something, they beat up Orton which was good because it makes it seem like they're not on Punks' side because Orton isn't going after Punk or anything like that, he just squashed a jobber prior to that and he isn't really doing shit right now lol.
But my favorite out of the group is Ambrose. Second is the guy whoever did the spear on Ryback. I don't watch FCW or anything like that but I only know of Ambrose because of you all lol.
- Before CM Punk went down with an injury and WWE was forced to change the TLC card, it's now believed that Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns were going to be added to the card on the go-home RAW in a Tables Match against Kane, Daniel Bryan and a third person, possibly Randy Orton or The Miz.
That ends the myth of The Shield being in a match "too early" at TLC.

I think Black was on a good path judging by his FCW/NXT career. Don't know if he'd wind up in a position that Kofi is in. Seems like the company is pretty intent on seeing if he can have a real future. Not a slew of misguided pushes that lead to nothing a la Mr. Kingston.
The following are the ongoing spoilers for the tapings currently underway at Full Sail University. The first episode to be aired January 2nd, 2013!
Garrett Dylan vs. an unnamed worker ends in a no contest when The Shield came out and took both of the out. After the match, Ambrose got on the mic and cut a promo about injustice in NXT, which led to NXT Commissioner Dusty Rhodes coming out. Rhodes warned them about punishment should more attacks happen later.
Corey Graves b. NXT Champion Seth Rollins via disqualification when The Shield interfered, meaning Rollins retains the title. Rollins was decked out in full Shield apparel and even came out to a Shield titantron. After the match, the entire NXT locker room came out to stop The Shield, but they weren’t enough. Big E Langston appeared near the crowd and stared down The Shield to close the show.
The show opened in NXT Commissioner Dusty Rhodes’ office where The Shield was meeting him. Rhodes informed Seth Rollins that he will defend the NXT Championship tonight, once again against Corey Graves, but this time it will be No Disqualifications. Shield left as Big E Langston showed up and Rhodes talked with him.
Big E Langston b. NXT Champion Seth Rollins, during the match The Shield attacked again, beating down Big E only for the NXT locker room to invade and chase Ambrose and Reigns away, leaving Rollins at Langstons mercy, and Langston to become the new champion with the Big Ending.
