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.
