I wouldn't say crickets by i think the hype will have died down a fair bit at that point and i hardly think he is going to win multiple world titles if any at all..... but then again that could just be me being biased 'cause i admittedly can't stand the man nor do i see anything special about him at all that would warrant a world title.

As a senior at Georgia Tech, he was listed as 6'3", so that's probably his real height.
I'm not saying they're lying but like I said he looked just as tall as Kane in the ring during that match. Bigger too.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Really, really fucking love everything WWE have done with these guys so far and I'm used to them fucking up so just trying to enjoy it. They've consistently booked them strong on RAW and the video promos they've been doing are really refreshing and unique; unlike anything else WWE are doing at the moment. Then there was the match tonight, which if followed up correctly, can turn all three guys into instant stars. A lot of people on here are calling it MOTY and I can't disagree, it really was fantastic.

Have to say I had my doubts about Reigns being a part of the group, since he didn't appear to fit with Rollins and Ambrose, but I've been incredibly impressed. Obviously he has a great look but he also seems to possess a ton of charisma and comes across as legitimately badass. He did incredible in the match tonight considering how green he is and will no doubt become a big star.

Totally agree Roman Reigns is a tank that guy is awesome not watched Raw in like a month, decided to watch the PPV tonight my god that match was awesome and one the reasons it was so good was Roman Reigns he's the future of wrestling when he put Kane through the barricade that was just sick. This guy is the future WWE champion mark my words him and Ambrose will both be world champions in the next two years.

Yeah it's pretty amazing, Reigns is a very imposing figure.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Why isn't/wasn't Reigns getting the respect the other two are getting? Oh it's because he wasn't an indy darling? Got it.

And that's hardly a bad thing or particularly indicative of anything. Him not being an indy darling means that he was a largely unknown figure to most of us. Why would you respect/disrespect someone you don't anything about? I think it's fair to say most people said "lets wait and see what he does before we judge him" and that's all you can do, but what you shouldn't do is judge someone simply because of appearance or because of things others say. You should always judge for yourself.

He played his role well last night and his spear through the barricade was cool as fuck. But we still don't know the full extent of his abilities and weaknesses as a professional wrestler. Time will tell how good is, and I'm sure he'll also continue to improve as time goes on.

What I don't understand, are the people who say he's the second coming of Jesus because he's an attractive hunky man.

Ambrose: 7 years in the indies. Title reigns in 7 different promotions.
Rollins: 5 years in the indies. Title reigns in 8 different promotions. #17 on PWI Top 500 of 2009.

It's not that Reigns doesn't get the same fanfare because he's not an 'indie darling' - he just hasn't racked up any accomplishments yet. He's well on his way, though. He made a damn good showing tonight.

Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne.

People are just more excited about guys they've watched for years in other companies than a brand-new young guy who is appearing for the first time. That's no slight on Reigns, who I have seen PLENTY of people praise including myself, it's just how things go. Try not to get your panties in a twist.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Reigns is a beast! I'm glad he got the pin too lol. He's quickly becoming one of my favorites in WWE. They say he's 6'3 and its most likely true but he has a muscular build and his presence makes you feel like he can go toe-to-toe with the big guys in WWE. He's decent in-ring but I'm sure he'll improve there with time. Given he's from a wrestling family he probably has the right people around him to improve.

His mic work has been short. He usually throws in a nice short line or two in the promos. I haven't seen enough for me to judge him on that but he really doesn't have to be great on the mic to Main Event. Batista wasn't until the end of his run in WWE and neither was Mark Henry. He's young and has time to develop but the guy has a high ceiling. Wouldn't surprise me one bit if he was the first to make it to the main event simply because he has a bigger star potential than Ambrose & Rollins.

Ambrose is the most complete package in the group when it comes to wrestling & talking. I believe Reigns has a higher ceiling. Ambrose could be the top heel in the company but I can't see him being the guy WWE advertises or doing TV appearances. Good in the ring and he's a good talker although I feel like he overacts sometimes. Like the posing during promos. Don't like it. I know he supposed to come off a crazy or something but its comes off as bad acting usually. Hated that oversell on the double suplex. Kinda ruined what was a good spot by doing a comedy santino style sell.

Rollins does absolutely nothing for me. He's ok in the ring. Thats probably his strongest asset but thats all I see. I was thinking half-way through the match "Has Rollins done anything yet?". He just comes off as easily forgettable to me. Plus, I really can't stand his voice. He sounds 14.

Who is Johnny Curtis? Nobody...just the future of WWE!
