Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I think they've all impressed me with the interview, and I'm happy with the way the characters have been portrayed based on their natural personas.

You've got Dean Ambrose - everyone is assuming that because he's an excellent talker, he'll be the brains of the outfit. However, he's more deranged and the biggest heel in the group, seemingly unpredictable and the way he was ferociously attacking Ryback suggests that he wants to cause trouble all the time.

Then, the actual brains, Seth Rollins - the way he talked suggested a more calculated, calmer persona. Still aggressive and evil, but he seems like the most sympathetic and reasonable one in the group.

And, of course, Roman Reigns - didn't think much of him at first, but when he first spoke, people took notice the most. He's not just a big muscle guy, he's intense and intimidating. He wants to make people feel uneasy, reminds me a bit of Brock Lesnar's stuff earlier this year.

If I had to predict what was cause the group to disintegrate, I'd bet Rollins would break away from the sadistic ways of Ambrose and the violent ways of Reigns.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I watched Raw last night with a cousin of mine who is a big TV wrestling fan but not a member of the IWC. He watches Raw, Smackdown, Impact, and Main Event but could care less about anything that is not on TV indies locals etc......here was our interaction during The Shield interview.

When they first showed the three sitting there he said "dang, dude is big look at his arms" he was talking about Reigns. I said yeah he's big he's the brother of Rosey he said "yeah I can see the family resemblance."


I said this Ambrose guy is a good talker. He said "He looks like a wimp I could probably beat him up."

When Reigns said I'll talk when I'm ready to talk. He said "Dude might be cold"

When Reigns said I got something to say we've said enough this interview is over he said "dude just told them to roll out"\

So take those comments for what their worth. Basically, a diss on Ambrose because of look. No talk of Rollins. Reigns seem to dominate the conversation.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Thought the interview was a good start for this group. Not amazing, but it definitely did enough to keep intrigue. Ambrose even scripted and having to act more normal than usual because of the angle really stood out with his mannerisms, facial expressions and body language. Reminded me of Brian Pillman/ the Joker, especially when he took off the mic. You could definitely tell Ambrose was a bit off the wall and is a loose cannon waiting to explode. As expected he stood out the most. And just think guys to those of us who know Ambrose's talent. This is like the smallest taste of what Ambrose is capable of.

Reigns I have to agree surprised me and I really like the fact they are going with the almost silent muscle enforcer type gimmick. He is definitely imposing and intimidating, someone who is not to be messed with and who you listen to when he speaks. Complements Ambrose really well. Rollins....ehhh I don't think he fits the group, his promo was articulate and it was good. Does come across the most convicting in terms of the message and his idealism is reeking for sure. But to me he just doesn't suit being a heel in this group and doesn't quite fit in. I hope in the future he does turn face once this angle has ran a bit of its course.

The beat down to end the show I liked. Liked how they took out Kane and Bryan and especially standing their ground and not running away from Ryback. Too many times we see heels run away from the monster faces so it was a nice change to see the shield just be like "fucking bring it" and take the beating before coming back. Reigns's spear was Absolutely devastating, I loved it.

This certainly has my intrigue and interest so far.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

If The Shield is there to stop "injustices" shouldn't The Rock be destroyed for coming in from hollywood and ending CM Punks reign when he's had the title for over a year..........just a thought. Or maybe...............The Rock is the one behind the shield keeping the title on Punk for him to get his match at the rumble. Not gonna happen but just saying both the above scenarios make sense.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

The shield has been awesome so far, we got some character development, Rollings kicked Bryan, Reigns speared Ryback and Ambrose beat the living shit out of Ryback.

Problem is... Ryback squashing all 3 of them is the only possible outcome...

A mark for:

Daniel Bryan, Ambrose, Rollins, Brock Lesnar

All time faves:

Bret Hart, Austin, CM Punk

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I hope they give the green light for these guys to attack the Rock. What better way to establish your new heel group then by going after to the top face of all time. Hey, anyone else notice that the newest big angle dosnt involve Cena???

Not only noticed that the big angle doesn't involve Cena but loving it. I suggested above an attack on The Rock but I'm not sure also *if* they are going to acknowledge Reigns family connections (so far they haven't) wouldn't he not want his cousin to be attacked. I hope for the attack on The Rock or better yet they are working for The Rock but again I doubt it.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

These guys are being built up as another stepping stone for Ryback.

It's the same formula they used with Nexus. Build them up as a legitimate threat so that Cena can send them crashing and benefit. Replace Cena with Ryback.

The best we can hope for is that they recover.

for now. Knowing Vince, after his story with Ziggler/AJ ends, they will have him & Ryback fight The Shield, while Punk has The Rock to worry about.
