Re: The Shield Discussion Thread
The thing about the WWE is they always screw up amazing opportunities that they have. I wont go into it too much, but examples like the whole Punk leaves the WWE with the title only to return the next episode situation is what I'm hoping the Shield doesn't turn into, but no doubt will. WWE are notrious for it. They have these ideas, but no real direction on where to take them. They then try and come up with something on the fly that just fails.
Yeah I'm being one of those guys who are complaining before anything has happened, but I've been burned so many times before that I think I'm entitled to think this way. These three guys are so unique that this type of gimmick/stable thingy is beneath them.
I would have debuted Ambrose very similar to the way Jericho did in 1999. Even though he has't really been on a national stage like Jericho had been in WCW, he could use the time to introudce himself in a 15 minute promo segment that could be as famous as Jericho's.
Rollins is the NXT Champion. This writes itself. Why didn't he just turn up with the be;t over his shoulder in backstage segments until he pissed off a mid card heel and then he beats him in a match on Raw?
And then their is Reigns, who should just have been brought in like he has on NXT ad the Thoroughbred? Coming in wearing a suit like a boss and just beating people in good hard fought matches.
I know the Shield is trying to be different, but their outfits are weird and where is this all going other than them being beaten up by Ryback?
I really want to see Ambrose conquer the wrestling world, but I'm not sure the Shield is the way to do it. Yes I'm happy he is finally on tv, but he was ever in NXT, and for them to keep saying he was is a bit weird. I thought they were keeping him off NXT because they had something big in mind for him...
"Yet another strong episode of Lucha Underground. Where else do you get magic medallions, Skell-o-mania demons, Resurrection, teleportation, and caged monsters all in the same one hour wrestling show? Plus, the writers weave together such a good universe that all of that over the top stuff fits."
