Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Lulz.
The first night they made their debut as a team, I said that they should have never debuted as a team, especially when you're dealing with such a schizo, hot shotting company that has ruined so many characters within the last year alone. Right now, they're goons in black and aren't be allowed to display what they're really capable of.

I'm not even thinking about who will make it out of this group but I'm definitely worried about how and when WWE will fuck all of them up, especially Moxley.

I just recently watched a q&a with Punk where he listed Ambrose among the guys with most potential in NXT, and then he later went on to say how special he is and that he's trying his his best to make sure they don't screw that up. Anything can happen, but I think these all have proven to be very good, especially Ambrose. Don't give up on them just yet.

Also, from how I see it, WWE is stalling a bit from this period til EC. They've probably already set up feud for Orton/Sheamus and there's a possibility for them to face the Shield, in which case they would want the attacks to repeat to save up the good stuff for later. I dunno, I feel like things might be picking up after RR.

Don't expect me to go out there and be a nice guy. Because I'm not a nice guy.

Oh I'm not giving up on him or the other two. They aren't the problem. The buffoon fuckery that is the creative team led by senile, indecisive Vince is who I have given up on and they're the problem.
I take everything Punk says right now with a grain of salt. They fucked him up enough in the last year for me to not believe a word he says. If he couldn't stop himself from getting involved with the Nash, AJ, Jericho, and "yeah you've been our world champion for over a year but you're still irrelevant" debacles, the hell is he going to do to make sure that Ambrose is safe?

The moron writers have nothing for Shield. They keep doing the same crap every week.

Re: Why does The Shield keep attacking Orton?

Isn't he turning heel soon? I see swerve coming.

Check out the pilot for my webshow WISHFUL THINKING. It is a show about a college student who fucks up his day and a Genie grants him the opportunity to do it all over again and he finds new and creative ways to fuck it up even more.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JRD...ature=youtu.be

Watch Episode 2 of WISHFUL THINKING
The Test: Rob gets caught cheating on a test and has a chance to go back and do it again

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSeXhjpQ0rY

Watch Episode 3 of WISHFUL THINKING.
The Date: Rob tries not to fuck up a hot date and does it anyways.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjJdv8GllyM

Watch Episode 4 of WISHFUL THINKING.
The Poker Game: Rob tries to win some money at Poker and is terrible at it.

Though I'm a little worried, I think things will be fine. I'm a huge Ambrose fan, and so far I think the Shield basically carries his character in particular: psycho on a mission to right wrongs. Also, tons of guys have had crazy, crazy gimmicks that they were able to 'reboot' from. Ziggler was a cheerleader, Batista was a 'deacon' and essentially a bodyguard for Reverend D-Von, Undertaker was a Biker (I actually like this version much more, so Satanist-to-Biker makes my list of good reboots as well), The Rock was a happy islander and then in the Nation of Domination, everyone's had weird gimmicks that they survived. Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns will be fine. Wrestling fans are aware of the weird shit that's happened in the past, and that wrestlers should be able to play more than one 'character' throughout their career if that's what it takes to get the best performance out of them.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle

Re: Why does The Shield keep attacking Orton?

Lord knows.

I assume because he's an over big name with nothing much planned for him and having the Shield attack them could raise them.

No. Just lazy WWE.

Perhaps they are trying to improve the current product by injuring him
