Roman Reigns will be the breakout star from The Shield

Yes, we all know the greatness of the Dean Ambrose and well I'm guessing the Seth Rollins has his following as well but I can't help but not think that The Shield was formed to get over Roman Reigns. The whole purpose of this faction is to push Roman Reigns as their next big thing, not Ambrose and certainly not Rollins.

And I have no problem with it. Really, Roman Reigns is such a friggin star. He reminds me of Kevin Nash. He just has that look. This is a guy I would seriously have no problem with it. He's the only guy in The Shield that actually fits the gimmick. He looms like a big, bad body guard. I believe Roman Reigns is WWE's next breakout star.

Ambrose will become a major player but this current gimmick just doesn't suit. Rollins, I'm really not too sure about him. But damn, this Roman Reigns guy looks impressive.

I'm going to forsee Ambrose being a top heel feuding with Rollins who is a top face. Reigns will be competing in 6 man tag matches with his cousins before he is jobbed out like Mason Ryan.

Reigns is going to be jobbed out while Rollins is a top face?

Wake up buddy.

The Shield's intentions are still logical.

I didn't want to post this in the Shield thread because this has little to do with the debut, or hype surrounding them, but on there storyline.

Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler are doing more damage to the Shield than helping them, especially with them both being faces now. They're acting as if the Shield's attacks have been senseless and I can understand Lawler, but Cole's explanations are hanging by a thread, which to a degree makes sense, but I'd rather he just not defend them at all, than make bad excuses. Maybe they're waiting for Ambrose to explain it.

Anyway, the Shield claim they have no affiliation with Punk and Heyman, and maybe in the end they will be will, but there claims of justice still makes sense.

Last week, when Kane faced Punk, and Kane was attacked, Cole's explanation was that Punk has beating Kane in title matches before. Well, that wasn't a title match, and the vote fiasco aside, the Shield claims they didn't like things being a popularity contest, but even closer to their motives is that Punk was facing an opponent that for most of the night he didn't know who he was going to face, and that's not "fair". They would've attacked Bryan, or anyone had they been voted. The continuous attacking at this point is a legitimate feud with them.

Same with Randy Orton, Brad Maddox had no clue who he'd be facing, let alone, the second most decorated former world champion on the current roster. They also could've felt that Brad Maddox came up through the development territories just like they have or anyone else on the roster, and while they understand tryout matches no one ever has there tryout match against a main event level competitor.

Then attacking the Miz during the lie detector thing, realistically it shouldn't matter if Punk is working with them or Maddox, because the matches Punk beat Ryback in (Hell in A Cell, and Triple Threat) are no disqualification matches. Now, that one may be a stretch, but more importantly if the Shield has no connection to CM Punk then they wouldn't know if he's working with Brad Maddox, and the Miz asked if Punk was working with both in the same question. A 50/50 answer would've still put Paul Heyman at risk. Heyman is not a wrestler, he's a confidant, and even then while it's expected for Heyman to know, Punk could've never told Heyman. If Punk was working with Maddox, without Heyman's knowledge, Heyman would still be "fed" to Ryback. That would've been an injustice.

I agree to extent though. I'm just hoping WWE doesn't pull a Nexus with them and ruin the story

The Shield thread covers all of these bases. That's what it's there for lol.

I do agree with you on your points though.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

He's been pretty underwhelming in comparison to the other two IMO. Wasn't a big fan of when he spoke in the interview.

To his credit he did have to speak right after Ambrose who has clearly mastered his character and seems completely comfortable cutting a promo but it did come off as slightly awkward when Rollins spoke.
