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.
The guy thinks Kofi Kingston is really good at delivering promos. Not worth your time explaining that what Ambrose can do is factual when he's slated as really, really great.

As always, Dean carries the day on the mic. But this promo, everybody was pretty good. I think Roman is learning, day by day, from these two.

The fruition of all that teasing with Mick Foley was pretty sweet.



Was it as good for y'all?

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread



Said it in the Smackdown thread and I am impressed with these videos the production team has put together for The Shield. I kind of appreciate what each man brings to the group with their particular style of promo, character, presence, and delivery. Only time will tell who Vince & co. seems the most star potential in after the group ultimately disbands. I do want them to start have more matches on TV for a change of pace from the 3 on 1 attacks every week.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Figure Cena/Taker is next year, and not saying it's a better idea than facing Rock or Brock, but I wonder how Taker vs. Shield would go at Mania?


Like the promo on Smackdown, but I cringe when Reigns and Rollins speak. Ambrose is awesome on the mic and should be the only one who even talks.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Upon closer look at the evidence, we may have a 3 man bromance:

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.
