They were vital to the WWE Championship match and making sure that Punk was still champion, how is that getting lost in the mix?

They were definitely important to a major event, but seeing how they've actually wrestled a match on WWE PPV I think they should have taken a step towards letting them do something else than just attacking people. If they had a match they must have a contract.

But I guess their match was like Ryback's feud with Punk; a not too thought through, quick fix replacement. With the difference that The Shield put on a really good match, while Ryback is the only guy Punk has had bad matches with during his reign.

No, that's short-sighted and wrong. The Shield is special in part because there's still a sense of mystery and uncertainty; every time you book them into a regular match, a little bit of that aura dissipates. Aces & Eights in TNA are a prime example of this.

No, WWE is deploying The Shield perfectly: they're a looming, unpredictable presence, their motives are nebulous, their allegiances are ambiguous, and the only certainty about them is that their ability to devastate people and change the result of important matches. And you'd like to give all that up ASAP? Spare me.

You and I are on the same page, my friend. Couldn't have said it better myself. If I wasn't using my phone I would offer the greenest of reps.

I don't think the mystery vanished when I watched them on NXT. They talked, Rollins had a match (which doesn't have to happen soon in WWE, that's not my point) and they kicked the asses of the entire roster (except for Big E). We learned nothing about the reasons why they are doing what they are doing, nor did we learn anything that predicts what they are going to do next.

But what we have now on Raw is them doing nothing but beating people up, and there's hardly any reaction to it (I'm not talking about the crowd). No one is searching for them, no one is taking action etc. I just expected more to happen from the point where they've actually had a legit match.

I'd actually say what hurt A&8s more than anything is repetition and booking. Way too many beatdowns, far too many loses, and making a big deal out of unveiling jobbers like Festus and Knox.

I like that The Shield have been kept to a certain pace, but I'm in total agreement with Peter. There doesn't need to be any huge revelation atm but we need something. Matches, promos, forward movement.

i expect to see the shield attack a big star next week, i think it was good storyline wise to keep them quiet on the last raw as it was all about the rock, next week tho is a different story

Most people don't watch NXT, and what happens on that show does not affect the Raw/SD narrative. How you were affected by their appearance is immaterial and does not count.

Well, now you're talking about something different. You're upset about how the OTHER characters react to the Shield, not whether the Shield is booked into matches. A character like Tommy Dreamer can seek retribution without a scheduled match. That's a completely separate conversation.

You might be stunned by this, but it's only been 8 RAW episodes since The Shield's debut, and two of those were fluffy holiday episodes.

You people constantly complain that WWE rushes angles and stumbles forward without a plan...yet they clearly have a plan for these guys and are taking their time, and you STILL complain? I swear to christ, most of you simply don't get it.

Thank you. I appreciate that. If I don't have your rep in the next 24 hours, I will...god, I don't know....NOT post this picture again. As much as I enjoy it.

Next week's Raw hopefully we may just get something more from the Shield. With Ryback now out of the title picture he may just call out the Shield and we may get interaction as booking Ryback with less mic time and covering his weaknesses with a Shield promo will work well. So as there is only a few weeks till RR, that we may just get a promo from the Shield.

It's relevant because it gives me black on white how it feels when they are doing something else than attacking someone and disappearing afterwards. That's always worth more than speculation and it doesn't matter that NXT isn't part of the Raw/SD narrative because my ability to reason isn't limited to that.

I never said that I wanted them booked in matches, I said that I thought WWE should have them do more than they've been doing after they had their first match. That's not saying that I think they should be wrestling matches, it's me saying that I think their storyline should develop after that milestone. Ergo it's not a different conversation.
