Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

If it becomes too much of a problem then I suggest sticking a mouthpiece on him. There are the exceptions to the rule too. Batista. He wasn't good on the mic, yet he had success as a big powerful worker in the spotlight.

That is true but Reigns isn't nearly that huge. He's even smaller than Sheamus in mass and is probably a lot closer to Miz size.

Thanos is only beaten because he allows himself to be, and he only allows himself to be beaten because, in spite of his ambition to attain ultimate power, he sub-consciously knows that he's not worthy of it.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

Blame the comparison on the enforcer role. Batista was the enforcer of Evolution. Reigns the enforcer of The Shield.

He definitely is, and should fall into that role more evidently in the next few weeks. I'm hopeful that he'll do very well.

Try being informed instead of just opinionated.

After finally getting to watch Reigns in a match on NXT I'm convinced he is more than just an "enforcer". I didn't notice it back in his Leakee days but the dude definetly has the 'It' factor but in a different way than Ambrose does. With the way Ambrose delivers, he would make a feud with Hornswoggle captivating.

He definitely has something about him but I'm not convinced yet if it actually is something beyond his look. The announcers in NXT hype him up like he's the 2nd coming of Hulk Hogan or The Rock, but then he wrestles or cuts a lengthy promo and, in my opinion, fails to deliver on the hype.

It reminds me of the way ROH hyped Mike Bennett like he was some huge deal, and then we saw him and he was extremely mediocre with no originality at all, as far as wrestling goes.
