Try being informed instead of just opinionated.

Basically what this list tells me is that they could have gotten away with having Bryan, Barrett, and Sheffield as the only members of Nexus(barring Bryan's temporary release and Sheffield's injury) and the angle probably would have lasted longer and/or been more significant. My point is that it's obvious they are using the nWo or The Nexus as a basis of comparison for The Shield. If they weren't at first, Ambrose changed that in the interview just by mentioning them.

It's too easy to be negative, especially for a fan of professional wrestling. I think it takes more guts to look at something with a positive mind and end up being wrong than it does to play it safe just so you can say "I told you so".

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I know many people think that the IWC overreacts about these three and maybe it's true, but this stable is so damn refreshing. And to be honest, so is Ryback. The most recent ending to Raw was epic, minus all the random camera angles that kept fucking everything up.

I think why it's so refreshing was the final scene. It isn't about Cena anymore. Or Big Show. Or Sheamus. It's about three young up and comers and a brand new main event star in Ryback. The reaction that Shield gets is probably better than anybody in WWE had hoped for, and Ryback is finally getting a huge pop whenever he comes around. I have floor seats for TLC with my girlfriend, and judging by the reaction he got in NJ, it should be even louder in Brooklyn this Sunday.

My favorite part is that Shield didn't back down whatsoever from Ryback. Yeah, Ryback threw a ladder at their face but they didn't run. They are what they say they are. They will fight you and that's the end of it. I'm sure the Ambrose/Joker comparison has been done to death over the last 200 pages, but when Ryback's music hit, you see a brief glimpse of Ambrose turn around with his arms open, almost welcoming the challenge...much like Joker not budging and holding out his arms while Batman is rushing towards him on the Batpod in TDK. It was so refreshing to see a heel group that isn't afraid to fight.

Ambrose turned around, all three were basically inviting Ryback into the ring. It was an awesome ending, I loved it.

Actually, the early report said Ambrose IS THE GUY WWE Officials want to PUSH and BUILD into a headliner once the angle with The Shield is over. Some WWE officials think Reigns has more potential of the three, but his in-ring ability isn't ready yet, however Ambrose's and Rollin's is.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Here's the 2nd third of international smackdown comprising of:

- The Sheild beatdown on Orton
- Miz-TV with Team Hell No
- The new cryptic Shield shakey cam promo which interrupts Hell No
- Shield coming through the crowd to fight Hell No and Ryback enterting

- The 1st half of Kofi/Del Rio

They need a proper leader. Even if it is someone like Barratt. Someone who can talk on the mic.

^ That's all well and good, but this is the part of the report from Smackdown that stand out the most to me.
