I was really excited about Rollins. WWE often puts ROH guys in a position to succeed. ( what happened to Colt Cabana? That guy rules!)

what do you like about the shield?

And wouldn't it be better if they just came out as the destructive force they are? Instead of this perposturous fake good guy gimmick?

Yeah, I get the vibe that Rollins can really have a future. So excited to see how things pan out. Don't know why the E cut the cord on Colt. They doomed him from the start by giving him no fanfare whatsoever. It's too bad.

I like the excitement they bring. It's a jolt of energy that the WWE needed. A great way to debut 3 new wrestlers and get them established in swift fashion.

I'd say they are a pretty destructive force already. The whole "fake good guy" gimmick you speak of is fitting. It's true villain form. Every villain always believes what they do is right. The Shield is no different. They're there to stop the injustice of the WWE. They believe their assaults are justified. I love that, personally.

Maybe it's something to do with the nexus? BY my understanding the nexus was really popular, but they just didn't have the talent to make the idea work.

Well no will deny that the Shield has the talent to make this work.

But can they? I mean, why build up Rollins as a cool metal guy in NXT if he's just going to dress like two other guys and play a completely different character when he debuts?

I understand that Ambrose also had a very unique thing going on in FCW. Why introduce him in this manner. He looks like a corrupt cop.

Another thing I don't like about this is the fake good guy thing. The fake good guy thing is so tired.

No one believes that the shield is actually fighting injustice. Everynight they jump some good guy and spew that unbelievable rhetoric. Wrestling is a story telling medium and this is a lousy story.

I love the WWE, my favorite promotion by far. But I just feel like if any other promotion on the planet starting doing believable characters with HUMAN storylines, they'd just blow the WWE away.

Where are the Walter Whites in the WWE?

Where are the Rick Grimes?

Where is the drama?

sorry for the bad spelling. I am worthless without spell check.
Wait, you're expecting Breaking Bad calibre writing for WWE? What alternate Universe did you come from? Creative can hardly shell out anything decent let alone something as great as Breaking Bad. Your expectations are too high, The Shield are actually doing better than I think most people expected, yes it could have been done better but right now they are, for a lot of people, the best thing going right now.

The Shield is a good way to get these guys out there and have the Casuals familiarize themselves with them, the real test comes when they go their separate ways. That's when I'll be expecting a little more from creative.

I'm loving The Shield right now, I'm a massive Ambrose mark so I was only really interested in him when they debuted, but the other two have been excellent as well. Best thing in WWE right now.

As for the "fake good guy" thing, I like it. They're not the usual rude, arrogant, pussy heels WWE have been churning out for the past few years, sure they're cocky to an extent but in a different way, in that rather than getting on the mic and saying "I'm better than you", they prove it by going after the big players. They have been booked brilliantly in that regard, it's nice to see heels not acting like cowards for once.

Shield is brilliant, one of the best things WWE came up for quite some time, and you guys still try to make them look bad?

This is what I can't believe is happening with The Shield and I say that in a good way. See, I was excited for Aces & Eights over in TNA and I stopped watching over a month ago but that was just merely because I just didn't have the time anymore. I eventually learned that their getting beat up 5 on 2, running from 1 or two guys when their in packs. That's bad booking right there, who's going to look a group like that and think 'threat'? The A&8's recently announced they are bringing in some muscle, if they don't get booked as more of a threat after that, it's a wrap.

The Shield have so far stood in their ground on every occasion save for one or two situations where they back off. At TLC they were shown as tacticians and used Rollins' 'sacrifice' as a distraction to get the win. 3 on 3 with the 'Oh, so scary Ryback' on the opposing team and they won.

Yup this is great, look at other factions, go look at aces and 8 now in TNA, they run off as cowards when 1 guy runs to the ring to clear house. Rybacks music hit on Raw and did you see Ambrose run at him like a mad man, that was just awesome.

Booking for The Shield has been done REALLY well right now. It's refreshing. I know it's early, but I haven't found a fault yet from a personal standpoint. Each week my interest grows more and more. I think after TLC we know WWE is on the right path with these guys.

Remember when that Ryback vs Shield handicap squash match was the hot topic a week after they debuted? I'm pretty cynical, but that was a touch off I'd say.

Have to agree. They face the opponent head on, but Cena still lurks.
