Thank goodness for these little corners of sanity/fuckery away from all the complaining and general boring nonsense.

The Shield are fucking fantastic. I cannot believe they've been on TV for what, three months now, and they've yet to be fucked up. That has GOT to be a record. But yeah, collection of thoughts:

-Really surprised with how... good they've been. Ambrose is clearly a goldmine, but Reigns and Rollins have really been shining lately. Not just in the ring, but just in their general demeanor. I've always been worried about Rollin's capabilities, but he's really been surprising me. Seems so comfortable and natural lately, which couldn't really have been said about him this time two years ago. Developmental really did him wonders. And I've never really been that interested in Reigns, but damn, he's got my attention. Not too sure how I feel about his ring work, but as the hothead muscle of the group, he's doing a great job. Got a great badass feel about him. And Ambrose... oh Ambrose. Just head and shoulders above the rest of the roster, it's unreal.

-Also pleasantly surprised with how well they're working as a unit! I know people were clamoring for Kassius Ohno in Reigns' spot, but I am SO glad that didn't happen. There's a pretty interesting dynamic between the three of them, in that you know that they're so different and have extremely different things to offer, but they just mesh so well that you forget they've only been teaming up since November/December. Their chemistry is amazing, I would never have thought they'd be so good together. Rollins/Ambrose in particular are the ship that sailed a thousand seas, forrealz. Their bromance gives me life. They're probably going to win the tag team championships and I cannot wait to see how that plays out. Everyone whines about singles competition, but these guys definitely work too well together to be thrown into that mess of a midcard/upper card right now.

-And just in general this little thing they've got going is just... really good. Pretty much the only segments I bother to check out these days. Their booking's been fantastic, I just hope they keep it up. There's no point going down the singles route yet, they need to be used as a unit for the time being as that is where their allure is. I think that would be tarnished if they were to start having singles matches. Just keep them out there doing their thing. Wrestling occasionally, cutting promos, interfering, generally causing a ruckus. Oh and oh god no more members. They just need to stay as they are. Don't try to fix what ain't broken. They fucked up Nexus by interchanging bodies constantly and weakening them as a team through all the singles competition/integration with the rest of the roster. The Shield needs to stay this mysterious group of bandits.

(but i am totally prepared for an Ambrose/AJ crazy fuckery pairing. kidding. i think.)

WHERE IN THE ACTUAL FUCK HAVE YOU BEEN ALL THIS TIME?

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I do enjoy The Shield so much. As a Sheamus fan, I appreciate the fact that The Shield beats into him so mercilessly. It brings me joy.

The Shield being put over as a -unit-, that can take on even the biggest stars due to their teamwork and ruthlessness. WWE booked Sheamus, Ryback and Cena losing clean, the thing they have always been afraid to book, and look what happened. The world didn't end. Those three still look amazingly strong. But they just went a HUGE way towards establishing new major stars. They are building believability in these guys for the audience, the thing we are always whining at creative for never doing. It's a story that -isn't- "cowardly heel uses numbers/cheating to win". It's something different. Halle-fucking-lujah, ey guys?
Yeah, it does seem they've learned from the Nexus mistake. Ryback, Cena and Sheamus getting beat by them does nothing more than make them stronger as babyfaces and The Shield stronger as heels. And that is all I ask for. That's why I'm not sure about them throwing them into singles competition yet.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Can we please stop talking about who we hope their leader is?!
They don't need a leader because whatever they're doing right now without a leader is clearly working.
There is not a single person that would make sense as the leader of The Shield.

Lets just enjoy the ride.
Enjoy The Shield winning the Tag Team Championships
Enjoy the impending MOTY-match between Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho
Enjoy seeing two of IWC's indie-darlings on "The Grandest Stage Of Them All"
Enjoy watching Roman Reigns go from inexperienced to a professional before your very eyes.
And somewhere down the road, enjoy the awesomeness that is a war of words between Dean Ambrose and Vince McMahon.


I actually am as good as everyone else pretends to be, it’s scary.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Shield are best thing in WWE right now. Who the hell is doing the writing for them? Give him a pay rise!!!!

While most writers are there thinking about how they can turn a story into another win for Cena someone at WWE is actually building the Shield to be damn awesome!

I am really liking the quick tags they're doing where two of them rush the ring at the same time. So many things they're doing seem like they're new and is a breath of fresh air to me!

Believe in the shield!!
