Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I'm sure they'd cuddle him too, if he'd hold still.

Having said that, all the best tag teams have an element of the bromantic about them. That's something missing with the spate of hastily assembled tag teams recently. Of the lot that participated in the tournament I think maybe only Rhodes Scholars and Hell No get it right. Maybe PTP.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

I'm going to have to use the word bromatic more often.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread

The second pick there makes me think of Rollins being the younger brother of the group. Like a nice job kid head rub hah

The Shield. Group of buds fighting injustice and stuff in the WWE.

It's the ideal way to live life.

I noticed at the PPV that Rollins said something here that got censored out. I could only make out "goddamn" from him, but I was curious what he (or Reigns) may have said for it to get censored out.

The censoring when I saw it came in too late, can't remember what he said exactly but it was something fairly standard like "that'll fucking show him".

PTP totally do.


Need to keep the Shield together for a while, I think. They should be on Mania in a 6 man I guess. Seperating them before it is way too soon, I think.

Yeah that's what I'm liking about their booking, they are showing 0 fear and giving 0 fucks on who comes out or who they fight. They don't show any different reactions regardless if hornswaggle or ryback came out.

I'm glad we've all latched on to that neologism. I couldn't find another word to describe the passionate and physical and sensual, but not sexual, display of affection and loyalty. You know, that very Hellenic ideal of male companionship between comrades - Achilles and Patroclus, and all that.

I think, for all that they seem like a random assortment of characters, they might have been put together because they do seem to mesh well.

There's been lots of discussion about which member is very "One of these things is not like the other" - Rollins because he's a natural born babyface, Reigns because he's not an 'indie darling', or Ambrose because the Mox-brose character doesn't seem like a team player.

But they've established themselves as having a great dynamic in a very short time.
