When do you think the main event focus will begin shifting from the Shield?

While I do adore Shield, there is no doubt these 3 been dominating the main event scene for years. Pretty much the upper card since the Shield got over big time.

While they are talented dudes, I think it's about time to begin moving some other talents up. They've put years into establishing those 3 as top players, I think others will benefit greatly from getting some booking to make them credible main event contenders.

Shield have feuded with damn near every upper card talent and won for the most part. I think we need a switch up before they become super overexposed.

I would love to see another talent, someone like Owens to have a run with the Word heavyweight championship belt. It's about time to give other talents a chance to run with the ball after Dean gets his proper reign.

The fact they've main evented 20 of the last 22 ppvs is telling. Not saying they shouldn't be main eventers anymore, but I'd like to see others get built up and get top billing.

I dont see the harm in giving other guys chances to show what they can do

Not sure but I'm not complaining. Even with some of my problems with all three Shield members, them interacting together is usually good TV. It doesn't have to end because of the relentless bitching from fans with the patience of a petulant toddler on a 5 minute drive to Dairy Queen from home.

Yeah, it needs to end. Its becoming Cena vs Orton but with 3 guys instead of 2. Hopefully when they do the triple threat at Battleground or Summerslam and Dean loses the title, we can all be done with this.

It'll be at least 5 years before those guys aren't regularly main eventing.

Of course, but you don't want to milk that cow dry. No one says they can't still interact, but I'd like to see what others can do when given the ball.

Top billing given to someone else doesn't mean to make the Shield irrelevant.

I'd say around the end of this year the focus might start moving away. It all depends on who comes out of this 3 way feud on top.

I hope the Shield triple threat match would be the end of it. The shield storyline has been one hell of a ride, but I honestly want to see other superstars getting into the title picture instead of seeing the Shield all the time. I can see Owens being in the title picture in a few years, he is incredibly talented and definitely deserves a shot at it.


Current Favourites: AJ Styles, Sheamus, Miz, Kevin Owens, Rusev, Chris Jericho, Cesaro

It doesnt't and never has worked like that. The title picture has always been dominated by a small group of people at any time.

Trust me, I have no bones with other people getting a rub later down the line but it won't happen as fast as some people hope. The prime two candidates for me are Owens and Styles, who have both been on the main roster no longer than a year. Any "freshness" will come in the form of a Cena or an Orton getting thrown into the mix and if complaints about ME fatigue are already set in place now, I don't imagine it getting any better anytime soon.

With the brand split, probably not for a long ass time. That's not a bad thing either.
