Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I am pretty sure I will get much more enjoyment watching Ambrose/Rollins/Reigns' career unfold than I did with Cena/Batista/Orton. The main reason being they are already as talented as those guys ever were and they just got here.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I don't mean to be a "Debbie downer", but I can't really get into The Shield. What's their point? They are heels that are against injustice. That has to be the most ass backwards mentality I have ever heard. They come out in SWAT gear, but they don't fit that look. Yes, Ambrose is extremely talented, but I just don't see how any of this showcases any of it. When I think of people in the WWE who could wear the S.W.A.T gear they don't look anything like Ambrose, or Rollins. Reigns I can deal with, he looks like an enforcer.

It's a bit like The Big Boss Man when he was wearing the SWAT gear, but in his case Big Boss Man sold the look, and the gimmick better than anyone else in the business. I have said it before that if there is anyone who looks like a SWAT team member it would certainly have to be Ryback. Everything about him screams SWAT team, Marine, or enforcer. Then there is Big E Langston. Another intimidating looking man whom I feel fits the role, or look of what The Shield is trying to be. Ultimately I think Reigns, Ryback, and Langston would have made for a much more intimidating, and convincing trio of individuals.

Roman Reigns is only 6'3" though. I think a more apt comparison/forecast might be Batista, who according to his mma stats is legit 6'4" after being billed at 6'6" in the wwe.

More like Orton, Reigns isn't anymore near close to batista size. Reigns will be an Orton if he puts it all together.

Monotone trudging mic work, decent in ring charisma that stems mostly from his facial expressions, athletic ring style, crisp moves, and a fantastic look.

Thanos is only beaten because he allows himself to be, and he only allows himself to be beaten because, in spite of his ambition to attain ultimate power, he sub-consciously knows that he's not worthy of it.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Given Vince's love of big men, and the fact that Reigns is related to The Rock, I wouldn't be surprised if he was pushed harder than Ambrose and Rollins to the disappointment of all the indy fans that worship the likes of Ambrose and Rollins. And I wouldn't mind it really. I'm a fan of The Shield, and so far I've been impressed by Ambrose and Reigns equally (Rollins less so, but he's still being doing well) and it's still to early for me to say who I like the most, although I'm leaning more towards Ambrose for his uniqueness in his character and promos, but I wouldn't mind if Reigns was pushed the most out of them.

Reigns will be pushed very hard, certainly, but I doubt he gets singled out by Vince for his "size" resulting in it. It's more likely that all 3 get pushed dramatically because, as some posters mentioned, Vince really can't afford to be selective at this point.
