Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Yeah, it is a shame that Foley & Ambrose didn't get a chance to work with one another - but Foley has no business being in the ring anymore. He's given enough of his body to the wrestling business and put plenty of people over - his hardcore matches with Orton & Edge were star-making performances.

On a different note: I hope the Shield stays together for a while, but it is interesting to think about possible feuds for the individuals down the line. I'd be shocked & extremely disappointed if the disintegration of the Shield doesn't end up with Rollins vs. Ambrose since we already know what they're capable of together. But what about other possible feuds?

Ambrose - I think Orton would be a good foil for him and they could put on some incredible matches; it'd be fun to see him matched up against Punk, Bryan, Kane, and I would love to see him face off against Jericho

Rollins - The obvious ones again are Bryan, Cesaro & Punk; he'd be a good foil for guys like Barrett & Ziggler as well

Reigns - Hard to say with Roman because his body of work isn't as big as the other two; I could see a match-up against face Del Rio working well, maybe Mysterio if he's got anything left & a program with Jericho could be pretty interesting

Any thoughts on these? Who would you like to see these guys up against once the Shield has run its course?

Lesnar should be the trump card of this match. It just makes too much sense.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I mean Ambrose tweeting. His tweets were hilarious. Him talking about his battles with spiders in his apartment and making fun of WWE's Twitter class was epic.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I've seen people post that Ambrose reminds them of the Joker, but his delivery reminds me more of 1950's Brando, just deranged.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Why does the shield have to break up for them to compete solo?

I'm never going to liken him to the Joker since he changed his gimmick into being bat shit crazy a month before the Dark Knight even came out.

To me, he's always been the bastard son of a Piper/Pillman/Raven/Tracy Smothers orgy gone wrong but somehow turned right in the end. Throw in some Jack Tripper mannerisms with some alcohol and you have Moxley.

it seems to me any factions or teams who try to have someone compete solo is only for a certain event, or to job to someone else. Look at 3MB, team hell no, Rhodes Scholars. The either lose or win a match that means nothing. It's all focused around being able to send them back to their group, in the end.

So splitting up could mean they could start independent pushes and feuds.

From WrestlingInc:

- The reason why Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns vs. Sheamus, Ryback and John Cena at WWE Elimination Chamber won't be happening inside the Chamber is because it would be an elimination match and WWE doesn't want to have to eliminate five of their hottest Superstars right now.
Honestly, this does make sense. While I would love to see the match in the Chamber, this way, only one guy has to bite the dust.

IMO, they could still do the match in the Chamber where two guys start out, alternating teammates come in, and after the last man enters, the first superstar to score a pin or submission wins the match for their team. Basically the exact same thing as War Games.

If the plan is for the Shield to win, then Sheamus will bite the dust. Vice Versa, Rollins or Ambrose will eat the pin.

I don't like their explanation. This tells me that The Shield is going to win but they don't want to put it in the Chamber because it might hurt Ryback, Cena, and Sheamus's momentum. To me, losing in a regular tag match is worse than losing in the Chamber. Give the fans a great match inside the Chamber and they won't even care who supposedly looks weaker.
