Re: The Shield Discussion Thread
The group started off really cool and I hoped it would lead to something great.
Unfortunately, I am starting to get a Brad Maddox vibe with them now.
What I mean by that is that I am convinced that the Brad Maddox turn was done only as an excuse to give Punk the cheap win but they didn't have a plan for it beyond that point. The fact that Maddox only got killed by Ryback a week later and has done virtually nothing since tells me that there was no plan and they probably cooked it up the day of Hell in a Cell.
I am starting to get the same feeling from The Shield. Hot debut, some interesting things early on. Where are they now? Well they said they do what they do to "right injustices". Well, what does that mean? I don't know, they never really explained it. Also, are they with Punk, are they not with Punk? Well they've stretched that out for so long at this point that I am starting to think they don't even know yet.
