Re: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns Discussion Thread

A brief glance at Twitter tonight reveals pretty much everything you need to know. Ambrose has taken the WWE fanbase by storm. Much like it was for me when I watched my first promo of his, everyone else has quickly become addicted. Even in a watered down scripted state, the guy manages to shine through. Tonight was truly the beginning of something special. I pray to god they don't fuck this up.

Ambrose just screams Joker from Dark Knight to me. Even the way he threw off the mic and walked off looked like the Joker's waddle away from the burning hospital. All 3 of these guys have star potential.

Re: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns Discussion Thread

One other thought - anyone notice that the "Shield" concept ties in very nicely with Ambrose's earlier promo with Foley? "You need to be held accountable" "You're a criminal, Mick" Crazed individuals taking the idea of justice into their own hands. ZOMG WWE HAS CONTINUITY

Re: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns Discussion Thread

Never really watched any of the threes stuff before, this, so my perspective isn't clouded by much previous experience.

Anyway, I am digging this storyline.

I don't really see any of them as the leader of this group. To me, they do actually seem like three individuals with a common cause. This is probably because they were all allowed to act and speak differently in the promo.

Reigns seems like a muscle type. Strong and silent but when he says something people listen.

Rollins seems like he actually believes in whatever cause they supposedly are fighting for. He had conviction in his voice during his part of the promo. I could easily see a face turn for this guy.

Ambrose seems a little. . .off. I got a vibe from him that he knows the words he is saying are bullshit, and he is just doing this for a kind of sick fun, like he gets off on it.

Who knows, my feelings could be bullshit, but for the first time since this years MITB I really like the direction the main storyline is going.

This.

Their strings are being pulled by someone bigger than them, who the leader is among them is irrelevant. The obsession with trying to find out who the leader is just asinine.

Re: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns Discussion Thread

I've been reading the WWE threads on Facebook about the Shield.

Literally the stupidest people post in them.

No. A Foley/Ambrose feud would have been better

Re: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns Discussion Thread

I thought they all did well. Each guy got a chance to let a little of their personalities out and no one guy over shadowed the other members of the group too much.

Ambrose provided the charisma and was the defacto mouth piece in a way.
Rollins sounded good and delivered the name of the group, which was pretty much the whole point of the promo anyway.
and Reigns came off like a total bad ass whilst only saying a handful of words.

They all seem like equals, which is refreshing.

I'm really interested to see where they go with this from here.
