Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Seriously, watch that promo and you'll see how Ambrose is simply on another level. Reigns speaks like he's a cartoon character and Rollins' Shield promos always seem so forced and out of character for him. They should remain as a group for a long time so they can hide each other's flaws.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

They gotta take the next step with The Shield after the Royal Rumble. Like reveal why they are doing what they're doing or what's their goal. The random attacks are getting a little old.

That promo was pretty....meh.

Ambrose is vastly overrated on the mic. His mic work wasn't "brilliant" or "amazing" in the indies and it isn't now. I've seen the work. He's the best talker in the group but far from what a lot of people on this forum make him out to be. He expression & his movements are way over the top. He's almost like a cartoon character.

Rollins is.....ugh. Rollins is Rollins. He acts like the little brother of the group thats always trying to impress the big brothers and act cool so he fits in. His voice makes his promos even more annoying.

Reign just can't talk. Its why they keep his lines short. Which is a good idea. He's not ready to be cutting promos on his own. Hopefully somebody is working with him on that. He has the most potential in the group but has a lot of work to do on the mic unless they plan on giving him a mouthpiece.

Who is Johnny Curtis? Nobody...just the future of WWE!

Reigns shouting at the end made me laugh my ass off.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Finally after months of anticipation the Ambrose-Foley storyline makes it to TV. Hopefully they follow through with this and it wasn't a one-time thing.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

It was a nice promo, Ambrose was good as always. Reigns was hilarious, but definitely needs to bring up the intensity. He's a big, scary guy...Reigns needs to use that in every aspect of his character.

As for Rollins it seems like he's still attempting to find a good tone in which to deliver his lines. First interview it was calm, second promo it was intense, then it was angry. He's trying to find his place and I think he's much better when he's talking calmly because it fits his character in the group of being the one who's leveled headed.

As I'm sure you already know this is merely an opinion and not the truth. It does seem like whenever a group of people praise someone on the mic, there's always that one who deems them overrated. Just from my experience on the forums.

I'd disagree by saying he is fantastic in his delivery and what he says, because he understands his character and how to portray it to the audience, Moxley/Ambrose is smart and you can tell that by watching him. The movements just add to his character of being an unstable sadist.

It's interesting you say he's overrated on the mic because I'd venture to say it's the main reason he's in this company right now, because while he is talented in the ring his strength is obviously in his talking.

At let's be honest, at the end of the day all these wrestlers are cartoon characters.

It really looks like Reigns is just going to be the muscle of the group. When they do go their separate ways I see him ending up like Mason Ryan. Which, sucks because he does have a good look going for him. He sort of reminds me of a Samoan Bradshaw.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Just saw the promo. Thought it was real good and of course I'd rank it Dean,Seth and Reigns again. Roman is great when hitting a surprise spear and I love his roars but it just seems like Dean and Seth are lightyears ahead of him when it comes to mic work. Yes I understand the promo experts on here say Seth sounds forced or is terrible but ive felt every promo he has done has been good to very good.

I really hope this trio does something different like have a match on Raw. its a crime they havent been giving anything major after their huge win.

Ambrose is great, Rollins is good and Reign is average. Roman has a great look and he is Anoi but he has a weak ring and mic skills...
