Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

It's interesting to compare The Shield to The Nexus.

I think Nexus had a better cause for what they doing. However, The Shield has better uniforms and more of a gimmick.

Nexus was larger and made a bigger impact. Yet, The Shield has had more impressive members.

John Cena ended up destroying The Nexus. We can only hope he does not do the same for The Shield. If it's Ryback who is their main foe instead, fine.

Thank You Punk.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I think you can only marginally compare The Shield and Nexus. Nexus started out as guys who were individually competing against each other, didn't seem to like or respect each other before the angle, and never got that mesh down that we were just talking about. You got the feeling that a couple of the guys were aligned with another few of the guys - Gabriel & Slater, Gabriel/Slater/Barrett-ish, Otunga/Tarver, but not Young, and never Barrett/Otunga. You see where I'm going with this.

They seemed like they were a well-organized squad, but they didn't have the connection that The Shield seems to have. Even if both groups were put together by creative to meet a storyline. Probably as a function of there being so many of them.

Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne.

I just thought of something.

Another way Nexus and Shield are different is Nexus attacked heels.

Thank You Punk.

You just wait till join cena gets it into his head that the way to stop the booing might be to get into a feud with the hottest heels on their show...

Biggest difference between Shield and Nexus? The Nexus lost when they needed a win the most to keep them hot (SummerSlam 2010), and the Shield won their first match to keep them looking strong at TLC.

The biggest difference is that Nexus were a bunch of fucking jobbers. How WWE ever expected a stable featuring Heath Slater, David Otunga, Justin Gabriel and Darren Young to be a serious threat is beyond me. Ryback was the only thing that gave the group any credibility at all, so it's no surprise things went to shit when he was injured.

Yeah, no. Barrett was the very picture of a leader, magic on the microphone, imposing and dominating as a character - even when they started losing, the Nexus was still interesting until Creative fed Barrett to John Cena. And Justin Gabriel is a fine, skilled wrestler. I'd watch Gabriel wrestle all day long. Unless the Shield is there to powerbomb him, Ryback instantly causes me to change the channel.

Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne.

And Dean Ambrose, Hayley Rollins and Roman Reigns isn't jobber material? GTFO with your indy bias. For most people, those dude's background are just as anonymous as Slater's, Otunga's, Young's and Gabriel's were when they first came in.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

The thing I love about the shield is there are clearly no scrubs in the group.

All 3 have a chance to be huge stats in the WWE, Especially guys like ambrose and reigns, these guys have insane looks and define the word superstar.

Rollins could be a great mid card champion like a guy like kofi and truth for example, who will stay around that area, but eventually excel in it.

Big E langston (as another guy), I belive had a bad debut because he is a natural face not a heel, he should have went with the 5 count gimmick in the WWE, and it's over.
