Sorry but i'm tired of seeing the shield pop in every time someone doesn't want to let someone else over cleanly. The Shield story hasn't progressed and it's getting old fast. I'm still a new (to this era) fan so maybe i'm not jaded enough, but if there is to be any hint of realism, shouldn't there at least be some reasonable feud for whatever the insider term is for this nonsense? If they are just a rogue faction, shouldn't there be some semblance of resolve by the powers that be to stop it from happening? It's not believable at all.
At first I was like whoah, interesting angle on Ryback v. Punk after creative painted themselves into a corner.
Now it's like wow creative doesn't care anymore. They just call "Shield!" then pat themselves on the back and go home early.
I agree, I don't know why they haven't changed at all, or aren't cutting more promos. I'm hoping its cuz of plans with Punk's current storylines, and so the timing isn't right for them to do something different. Shrug. This is a bit ridiculous. Lol I've dled NXT's 2013 shows to watch the Shield (saw the opening segment from the first show, thought it was good), and I can't wait to see if they show up on SD.

Yeah nothing against The Shield as a team. That was an awesome way to introduce them, and they can wrestle. Hopefully they find some way to push them the rest of the way as a legit tag team, or whatever the end-game is, because the most exciting tag team (Team Hell No) is carrying the whole segment on their backs right now. And sadly 3MB is the next most-interesting 3-man team lol.
It's just what they are doing with The Shield has crossed the line from interesting to annoying cop-out, and continuing the exact same way they were introduced isn't sustainable and it's bad for all involved IMHO.
Classic: Hulk Hogan, "Macho Man" Randy Savage, Ultimate Warrior, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Superfly Jimmy Snuka, Koko B Ware, Goldust, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, George "The Animal" Steele, Iron Shiek, Nokolai Volkoff, Sgt. Slaughter, Bret "The Hitman" Hart, Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, Hacksaw Jim Duggan
give them a decent storyline heading into WM please, the weekly attacks/saves are getting old.
to the poster above me, i think The Shield is a very talented credible-looking stable, but their introduction was pretty lame. Interfering in a WWE title match as a last-minute decision to help keep Punk the champion? Not that awesome. Awesome would be something like Nexus's debut which really shook things up and it was a top storyline for 6 months. Hopefully they give The Shield an actual storyline, cause unlike Nexus i actually see all 3 of them becoming main eventers after the disbanding.

Ambrose being brilliant as always, seth is growing into his role but reigns is still cringe worthy...i know people like him for his badass look but i cant connect with him...he makes me facepalm every time he opens his mouth.
"Now for me the biggest part of it is elevating the belt. I donít believe a championship makes a wrestler and a wrestler makes a champion. I have to raise the profile even higher than the championship and make everybody want it because I have it. I want my performance to be at the highest level of anybody in the company. I want to make everybody step up to me. Iíll create my own challenges; I want to make sure the energy is pointing to me and the United States championship. I donít want it to be a trinket.Ē
Mostly awesome promo. Ambrose of course was fantastic and that was prolly the best promo Rollins has cut since being aligned with the Shield. Reigns was alright but his last screaming words were really cringe worthy. I hope he doesn't do that again. I agree btw that the Shield's storyline needs to progress more. Its getting a bit stale these random attacks.
