The fact that is so obvious that Punk might be the leader is why I think he ISN'T the leader. Maybe Cena isn't a good choice, but also likely there is no leader.

The storyline needs to pick up some momentum as of Sunday because they're beginning to get stale. I'm hoping that Heyman is behind The Shield without Punk's knowledge, it'd add an interesting dynamic to the group and having Heyman on the mic with them can only be a good thing. Very interested in there plans for Wrestlemania, I'm hoping it's more than a meaningless 3-on-3 match. Give us Reigns vs. Intercontinental Champion and Ambrose and Rollins after the tag-titles, or something similar.

If anyone goes solo, it's Ambrose. He by far has the most potential. Reigns' look is his only great quality to be honest. Not even sure what is so great about Rollins.

So it's safe to assume since shield isn't allowed near the ring - Maddox will attempt interference or possibly brock.

Even his Crow gimmick sucked. Don't get me started on Sting, I am not a fan of Sting at all. I have met him on several occasions, and he is a dick. The worst PR person ever. I used to live down south, and I went to WCW events. Sting was a dick, and I can see why he is a born again. Everyone talks about Shawn Michaels being a dick backstage. Steve Borden was an asshole to his fans.

His whole gimmick was a rip off of The Ultimate Warrior. Warrior has said several times, and Sting has even admitted that Warrior came up with the look that they both went, and used in their singles careers. His name isn't original, and I am surprised he wasn't taken to court by the real Sting, who used to sing in a band called The Police throughout the 80's. He basically used the Scorpion Death lock knowing that Hart had already made it a popular wrestling finisher. Hart was already a more established name than Sting, and here was Sting taking his move.

Had it not been for Flair. Where would Sting's career be? Let us not forget this is the same man who ended Rick Rude's career. Sting's whole career is basically a feud with Ric Flair. Flair made Sting popular. Whereas Warrior pretty much made his own name. Sting obviously the better worker, I guess, but Warrior went over the biggest babyface of the decade in the 80's at WM 6 (WM 6 was not in the 80's), clean. Sting had classic bouts with stars to, but I would say that those stars made him. Especially Flair, and guys like Austin who would carry him through matches in their early days with WCW. His mic skills weren't great, and he always seemed like he was shouting into the mic for no reason. His generic "He's a Man Called Sting" theme was awful, and he used it for years.

Nothing about the man is original, not his name, his finisher at the time he used it, his look was a rip off of Warriors idea, he stole the Crow look, and Flair made his ass famous. Even more recently he ripped off the Heath Ledger "Joker" look in TNA. When is he ever going to come up with something of his own? Don't get me wrong he was a popular star while he was in NWA, WCW, and currently TNA. He has a cult following, but I'm not part of that following. I'm not even going to remotely respect him as a professional wrestler because as a person he was a dick. None of his matches are memorable because of his work, it's the work by his opponents like Flair, Nikita, Vader, Arn Anderson, DDP, Rick Rude, Bobby Eaton, and so on. He was fortunate to work with some of the best talents in the ring back then.

People forget how good the talent NWA, and WCW had in terms of skilled ring workers. They may not have all been huge superstars for Vince, but NWA/WCW had solid ring workers. Guys like Tully Blanchard, William Regal, Fit Finlay, Barry Windham and others really helped out many of the green newbies in the early days like Sting. However, nothing about Sting's matches tells me he is one of the best wrestlers in the world. Whereas stars like HBK, Austin, HHH, CM Punk, Kurt Angle, Jericho, Eddie, Dean Malenko, Rey Mysterio, etc are light years ahead of him. He never rank high in my eyes only because he is the most overrated professional "babyface" of all time. I realize that I am on the outside here, and I accept that. This is not a troll thread. I just can't stand Sting. Sorry folks.
You couldn't be any more wrong about Sting stealing the Sharpshooter. Bret himself said that Vince wanted Bret to use that move and wanted someone to teach it to him. Konnan back when he was Nax Moon in the WWF was the person who taught him how to do it.

How dare anyone compare Shield to Sting. Sting's attacks had reasoning and story behind them, Shield is just attacking random faces, blabbing about injustice and making moronic faces.

Stephanie McMahon is behind The Shield as she has been scheming with Paul Heyman all along as a way to get the WWE for herself because shes worried HHH is going to take it away from her once Vince retires. Unbeknownst to CM Punk they have been using him all along to keep the title away from one of HHH/Vinces boys and keep it close to them until they were ready to engage the last phase of their plan, Brock Lesnar. Brock wins the Royal Rumble, then as HHH and Vince look on in horror, he interferes in the CM Punk/Rock match leaving both men a bloodied mess. CM Punk reatains the belt however is a mess and him and The Rock decide to join forces with HHH/Vince to battle the new Steph/Heyman/Brock/Shield faction at Wrestlemania.

The Punk/Brock is billed as the winner decides who will control the WWE, HHH/Vince or Stephanie/Heyman, however Vince has a genius plan up his sleeve and makes John Cena the special guest referee. Punk is about to beat Brock when the ultimate double cross takes place and John Cena does the AA to Punk giving Brock the win.

Who will stop the seemingly unstoppable force of Cena/Brock? What will the Stephanie/Heyman regime do to the WWE now that it is under their control? Can anyone do anything about The Shield now that they are allowed to run rampant as the enforcers in the WWE?

Only one mad can stop the unstoppable and his name is Brad Maddox.

Yeah, people keep pushing a Shield/Orton, Ryback, Sheamus 3 vs. 3 match at 'Mania - but that seems are bit half-assed to me. The Shield can be really big but that sort of match wouldn't allow them to shine individually. I like your idea of putting them in championship matches.

Perhaps if Reigns became IC champ, and Ambrose/Rollings became tag champs, that leaves it open for the leader (Punk or whoever) to hold the WWE title. Then they'll have all the gold ala Evolution @ Armageddon 03.

Deans looking badass these days! Just watch smackdown and i knew what was going to happen, that didnt stop me wishing Dean would have grabbed a mic and answered Punk.


I do like the slow burn they're doing with the Shield, i do think though they need to add more variety in the attacks, such as faking some people out, coming from under the ring, more backstage beat downs etc. Cant wait to see it slowly revealing itself. It's a pity some people these daus just dont have patience.
