Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I wish Kassius Ohno would join, but apparently the WWE doesn't feel he is ready.

Owned!

He would have been a better fit for this stable than Rollins IMO, but WWE must have felt Rollins deserved the promotion first.

I think Rollins is decent in the Shield.

Everyone's expecting Rollins to be Jeff Hardy V2. But you should watch some of his ROH stuff with 'The Age of the Fall'

Kassius Ohno should be next to be called up. leo Kruger could be a good fit but I personally think he needs a bit longer in NXT.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Like I've said before, no one else is worthy to join The Shield. Not anyone from NXT, and certainly not anyone from the current Raw and Smackdown roster. Why do you people have thick skulls, why can't you come to grips with the fact that THREE WRESTLERS are enough to form a group, ESPECIALLY The Shield. Don't you like the sound of the word "trio"? It's perfect how it is, it's like a naked AJ laying in your bed except better. The Shield is bringing a sword to TLC, so I'm bringing my eyes to the front of TV(when their match starts because everything else is garbage).

Rollins looks like a star. I like Ohno, but he looks like a weirdo. If Ohno had debuted in place of Rollins it would have ruined the credibility of the whole thing and people would have been laughing and gawking at the 'flabby Jesus lookalike', as they were on his NXT debut. Plus Rollins has a much higher ceiling than Ohno IMO, and is far more ready for the main roster than Ohno who for me is still finding his feet in WWE.

As for Wyatt, he cannot be part of The Shield for obvious reasons, put him in a stable like that and it would just be the reincarnation of Husky Harris.

And no one else on NXT is showing main-event potential at present.

The physique/ceiling idea is complete bullshit, and only makes sense in Vince's warped imagination. Did not having chiseled abs ever stop Mick Foley? Dusty Rhodes? Jim Duggan? Even the Nature Boy was never big. Characters get over due to having charisma, great in-ring skills and most importantly being booked right. I don't know about you, but I've never seen Kane's abs but I buy him as a huge monster threat. Kassius Ohno is HUGE; a little chubby but that never hut anyone. If he was booked as a legitimate threat that knocked people out, then he would get over.

The Batista/HHH/Ryback body-builder style look is fine for some workers but it has never been the only game in town, not even in the steroid-induced muscle heydays of yore. Ohno "looking like a weirdo" is something that can greatly work to his advantage. It's a memorable look. That is all you need. It's actually very rare for a musclehead like Ryback to get as over as he is now: it was a rare example of good booking on the WWE's part that saved him from becoming another Lashly.


I mark for (right now):

William Regal
CM Punk
Mike Quackenbush
Dean Ambrose
Cesaro
Daniel Bryan
Paige
Bad News Barrett


Infinite marking and endless love for:

Eddie Guerrero
Larry Sweeney
Macho Man Randy Savage

I'm fine with Ohno's look, my biggest issue is actually that I think he needs to improve on the mic before he should be called up. But yeah, it's probably not a good idea to bring in a flabby Jesus lookalike as part of a main-event group of supposed badasses. Rollins, Reigns and Ambrose look legit. Ohno looks like a hobo with a strange name, not that that is particularly a bad thing but he would look as out of place in The Shield as Jinder Mahal did in 3MB.
