Re: The Shield Discussion Thread II
It's less interesting now that they have the titles, because that makes every match kind of predictable. At Payback and last night for example, there was no way Ambrose was going to drop the US title to Kane and it just made the match less interesting because the outcome was obvious. Without the belt, I would have been really invested in the match and probably marked out when Ambrose won and when The Shield involved. But at the moment there's no suspense of disbelief, we know they aren't going to drop the belts without warning and there are no credible challengers for their titles, so it's kind of stale. The Shield are close to entering Midcard Hell which is what I was worried about when they won the titles. The best thing by far at this point would be a feud with the Wyatt Family with all the titles on the line, but that can't really happen until the Wyatts have at least established themselves a little.
I wonder if The Shield will be involved in the MITB matches somehow.
