Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

The best thing I love from this group is that even though they do the whole strength in numbers thing, they do not back down when a big face is coming. They have that 'come at me' mentality that heels are missing in the WWE today.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I don't know about you guys, but this 6 man tag TLC match is looking like a recipe for disaster. I kind of fear someone is going to get injured by an overzelous powerhouse or someone is going to go a little too crazy with a steel chair and be deemed too violent like DB was with the tie incident.

We the people.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I've got a feeling that Ambrose, and Rollins will turn on Reigns once they are ready to split them up. I say this because I feel like we may get a segment between The Rock and Reigns at the Royal Rumble PPV. Rock telling him he was in the same situation as him with The Nation, and that he soon found it better for him to leave. This creates a certain level of paranoia on Dean's part who then informs Rollins about Reigns secret talk with The Rock. What I am getting at here is that ultimately you are going to have two top stars from this. Ambrose will be a top heel, and Reigns is going to be up there with Cena. Mark my words folks this Reigns guy is going to be a top notch face. Rollins has potential, but I don't see anything immediately happening for him.

I don't think Reigns has the charisma to carry himself to that level. its all well and good to be a big guy n all but if you bore the audience to tears then you ain't gunna get over, not in the long term. Same with Ryback, hes a flash in the pan and has no staying power.

Seth Rollins will also have this problem but he is far more well versed than Reigns so he might pull a D Bry and improve through practice.

I would think Rollins will be the first out of the group. He's a natural babyface, his look and wrestling style suits it. Reigns is more of a mystery right now (which is a result of him being very early in his career, he's not developed yet). I see him taking the Randy Orton route of turning face as he's kicked from the group, while Reigns remains for a while longer (as eventually breaks out as Batista did).

Ambrose is probably the only career heel here.

I agree that the Shield's best quality is they're being booked as fearless and strong. Not usless cowards like 99% of the heels get stuck as.

They never flee, ever, they only leave when they're done, or when they are physically forced into the crowd by others. They show zero fear when a big face shows up, like even when other heels might stand their ground, they get a big "oh crap!" face and shakily wait for the face to hit the ring. The Shield turn around when Ryback's music hits or Kane's pyro goes off, and they just wait there, ready for a fight (with a "bring it" pose).

It makes them seem like a real threat that can't be brushed off with a super face running down to clear the ring and make a tag team match playa. It's refreshing.
