Re: The Shield Discussion Thread
I don't mean to be a "Debbie downer", but I can't really get into The Shield. What's their point? They are heels that are against injustice. That has to be the most ass backwards mentality I have ever heard. They come out in SWAT gear, but they don't fit that look. Yes, Ambrose is extremely talented, but I just don't see how any of this showcases any of it. When I think of people in the WWE who could wear the S.W.A.T gear they don't look anything like Ambrose, or Rollins. Reigns I can deal with, he looks like an enforcer.
It's a bit like The Big Boss Man when he was wearing the SWAT gear, but in his case Big Boss Man sold the look, and the gimmick better than anyone else in the business. I have said it before that if there is anyone who looks like a SWAT team member it would certainly have to be Ryback. Everything about him screams SWAT team, Marine, or enforcer. Then there is Big E Langston. Another intimidating looking man whom I feel fits the role, or look of what The Shield is trying to be. Ultimately I think Reigns, Ryback, and Langston would have made for a much more intimidating, and convincing trio of individuals.
