Hmmm, looking back I was actually pretty vague I suppose - please excuse me, it's 03:23am as I type this and I'm shattered, haha. I'm basically asking if Ambrose has met people's expectations and been the standout member of The Shield for them? Not because he has the singles title in the group or anything, but through his ring work, mic work...the whole package if you will.

I really like all three of them for all different reasons, but Ambrose to me can be a main event wrestler in the WWE. Obviously not in this exact gimmick, but he has that dirty heel from the 80's look about him - and his mannerisms are so on point that he could sell the match & make his opponent look like gold pretty easily.

Ambrose has met and exceeded expectations. But I don't think he overshadows the other two. His specialty is the mic, and when the WWE gives him time to unleash his mic skils, he owns it. But it doesn't seem like he's getting that chance anymore. I don't know why, unless they're afraid he really is going to outshine Seth and Roman.

I really don't see a standout member, they each have they're strengths and keep improving as individuals. during their first couple of months yes, Ambrose was the clear cut leader but now it really feels like each could hold their own.

Seth Rollins is definitely the best of the group when it comes to ring skills. I feel a lot like you do when it comes to Ambrose, but to me it isn't his fault. I know what he's capable of, but I haven't seen him cut a promo on television in a while. This has to play a big part in the loss of interest. It's his strength... and he hasn't been able to fulfill his potential in that category yet.

I'm not sure if we'll ever see him at his best on the mic until he becomes a singles wrestler, to be honest. But I'd like to repeat that I don't think it's his fault. There's so much they can do with The Shield. They have more talent than most people on the current roster and all they've done is repeat the same thing every week. They just follow the same formula. For a group that's all about "chaos", they sure are predictable nowadays.

To me, Ambrose is the least exceptional member of the trio.

See, for me, that guy would be Reigns - except he's great in crossover media situations like interviews with blogs and news outlets.

Yeah, I think WWE is booking them to be equals because the whole 'well-oiled machine, relentless cohesive unit' deal wouldn't work if they weren't. However, for me, Seth has been the standout member purely for how much he has surprised me with his level of improvement. His style works very well in The Shield as it's very different from Reigns and Ambrose and brings a very different dynamic to the matches they are in.

I don't know how you could have expected Ambrose to do any better than he has given the circumstances. Right now The Shield is preventing these guys from showing any sort of personality, the few meaningful promos they've had have been absolute gold but there has been little to no mic time and they've mostly been presented as a single unified entity rather than a collection of individuals, meaning none of the members can really stand out or showcase themselves individually. The fact that virtually every Shield match gets 'this is awesome' chants should tell you that all thee guys are doing a good job when given the chance.

I feel like they're purposely holding off on Ambrose. He wasn't featured in any of the promo stuff for MITB, he hasn't been given a single feud for the US title and they're really limiting his mic time and exposure as of late. Once he's given a free remit to break off on his own, I expect we'll see an Austin 3:16 type moment; obviously not as impactful but a similar sort of thing that will make a lot of people sit up and take notice.

I have loved watching Seth grow as a wrestler from his previous, awkward indie spot-monkey style to being an actual storytelling wrestler. I just think as a character, he feels forced as a heel. He's a natural born babyface, and he's being hamstrung by not getting to wrestle in a high-flying babyface style.
