If they didn't have that level of booking they could have been left behind almost like The Wyatts.

I found it refreshing to see a new team come in and totally shake things up with a dominating push where they decimated everything in their path.




Top 5 (At the moment):

1. Seth Rollins
2. AJ
3. Sami Zayn
4. Luke Harper
5. Strowman/The Miz

When he almost eliminated the entire opposing team by himself at Survivor series 2013. That's when you knew a Cena was being bred.

It's probably been the plan from the beginning of the Shield, at least loosely.

Put the possibly future guy in a stable with two experienced disposable guys, it just didn't end up working out like that because Ambrose and Rollins have proven themselves to be anything but disposable... At least Rollins has.

When he would generally score the pinfall in Shield matches and I don't think he ever took the pin. Then they split up, he's finding himself shoved into the main event, teaming with Cena here in there in late 2014 and it just reeked of "aw fuck."

The 2014 Royal Rumble. That was a clear sign that he was being groomed for big, big things.

Also, I correctly predicted that Roman's push would culminate in a match against Brock for the title at Wrestlemania from a year prior.

The only thing I couldn't predict was the result, which was obviously affected due to the backlash to Reigns' push, Daniel Bryan, etc.

When the commentary team started calling him the "leader of the Shield" when they were still all at equal level. Actually, Ambrose was slightly more popular.


DAMN RIGHT

When Roman moved to the middle instead at the side during the Shield backstage promos. Nvm when they debuted.

When he broke Kane's record for most Rumble eliminations and which also included him tossing Ambrose/Rollins out of the match simultaneously.

Re: When did you realise that Roman was being pushed?

Internet reports pretty much surfaced immediately when the Shield debuted that Roman was the company's chosen son. That's why when people liked Rollins and Ambrose more and we began to see that everything was being given to Reigns (the least talented of the 3 but at least now has surpassed Ambrose) the WWE's fan ase began to rebel and boo the hell out of the man that was perceived as being handed everything above those more talented than him.

As soon as the shield debuted and I saw his credentials on wikipedia( Rock's cousin, spear yadda yadda)

Besides, Ambrose and Rollins didn't need the shield, so seeing them debuting in a faction with a relatively unknown guy, AND him being treated as equal to them, was quite strange.
